Some of the Information may include statements that are or may be deemed to be “forwardlooking statements”. These statements are prospective in nature and are not based on historical facts, but rather on the current expectations, assumptions and assessments of the management of the Company about future events and are naturally subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances which could cause actual events to differ materially from the future events expected or implied by the forwardlooking statements. The forwardlooking statements contained in the Information include statements about the expected effects of the Strategic Review on the Company, the expected timing and scope of the Strategic Review, synergies, other strategic options and all other statements in the Information other than historical facts. Forwardlooking statements may (but will not always) include, without limitation, statements typically containing words such as "anticipate", "target", "believe", "intend", "plan", "goal", "hope", "aim", "can", "continue", "could", "may", "should", "estimate", "expect", "opportunity", "will" and "would", and words of similar import. By their nature, forwardlooking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will (or might) occur in the future.
These forwardlooking statements are not guarantees of future performance and have not been reviewed by the auditors of the Company. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forwardlooking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, changes in economic conditions, changes in the level of capital investment, success of business and operating initiatives and restructuring objectives, customers’ strategies and stability, changes in the regulatory environment, fluctuations in interest and exchange rates, the outcome of litigation, government actions and natural phenomena such as floods, earthquakes and hurricanes. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in (or implied by) the forwardlooking statements. Investors should not place undue reliance on any forwardlooking statements. None of the directors of the Company (the "Directors"), the Company or its affiliated companies provides any representation, assurance or guarantee that the occurrence of events expressed or implied in any forwardlooking statement contained in the Information will actually occur.
No statement contained or referred to in the Information shall be deemed to be a forecast, projection or estimate of the future financial performance of the Company unless otherwise stated.
