Factors that could contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to, the nationwide labor shortage, which has negatively impacted our ability to identify and recruit qualified chiropractors and other personnel to staff our clinics, inflation, which has led to increased labor costs and interest rates and may lead to reduced discretionary spending by our current and potential patients, the continuing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, which has caused significant disruption to our operations in the past and may continue to do so in the future in ways that remain unpredictable, our inability to successfully implement our growth strategy if we or our franchisees are unable to locate and secure sites for clinic locations or attract patients to our clinics, a failure to profitably operate company-owned or managed clinics, short-selling strategies and negative opinions posted on the internet which could drive down the market price of our common stock and result in class action lawsuits, our failure to remediate any future material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which could negatively impact our ability to accurately report our financial results, prevent fraud, or maintain investor confidence, expected new federal regulations and state laws and regulations regarding joint employer responsibility, which could negatively impact the franchise business model, a breach of our IT security systems and those of our third-party service providers (as recently experienced by one of our marketing vendors), which could result in civil liability and a diminished public perception of our security measures, and other factors described in our filings with the SEC, including in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the SEC on March 14, 2022 and subsequently-filed current and quarterly reports.
