This Microsite and the Information, including information included or incorporated by reference, may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and businesses of Biffa and its subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings (the “Biffa Group”).
All statements other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements of future expectations that are based on management’s current expectations and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied in these statements. Forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements concerning the potential exposure of the Biffa Group to market risks and statements expressing management’s expectations, beliefs, estimates, forecasts, projections and assumptions, including as to future potential cost savings, synergies, earnings, cash flow, return on capital employed, production and prospects. These forward-looking statements are identified by their use of terms and phrases such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “goals”, “intend”, “may”, “objectives”, “outlook”, “plan”, “probably”, “project”, “risks”, “seek”, “should”, “target”, “will” and similar terms and phrases.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could affect the future operations of the Biffa Group and could cause those results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements included in this Microsite. These factors include, but are not limited to (a) currency fluctuations; (b) economic and financial market conditions in various countries and regions; (c) political risks; (d) changes in operational and trading conditions; and (e) changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including changes in the financial and commodities markets. Due to such uncertainties, ECP cannot give any assurance that any forward-looking statement will prove to be correct in the future.
Past performance of the Biffa Group cannot be relied on as a guide to future performance. As a result, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. The list above is not exhaustive and there are other factors that may cause the Biffa Group’s actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements contained in this Microsite. Each forward-looking statement speaks only as at the specified date of the relevant document within which the statement is contained. ECP does not undertake and expressly disclaims (and its directors, officers, employees, agents and advisers do not undertake and expressly disclaim) any obligation to publicly update, supplement, amend or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other information, except where it would be required to do so by law. In light of these risks, results could differ materially from those stated, implied or inferred from the forward-looking statements contained in this Microsite.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement contained or referred to in this Microsite is intended to be a profit forecast or profit estimate.
