What does this mean?

Hi Michael,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
We are often suspicious of Haring's works that have been acquired online from a seller who does not authenticate the works they sell. The Keith Haring Foundation can be a great resource for this but authenticating works is outside of the scope of a 48-hour appraisal. Mearto offers a more comprehensive authentication service for an additional cost; if you would like more information or be put in touch with them, please let me know. In the meantime, my value assumes this is correct but is conditional pending authentication by the experts.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
