This press release contains "forward-looking statements" - that is, statements
related  to  future,  not  past,  events.  In  this  context,  forward-looking 
statements  often  address   our  expected  future   business  and   financial 
performance,  and  often  contain  words  such  as  "expects,"  "anticipates," 
"intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks,"  "should" or "will."  Forward-looking 
statements by their  nature address  matters that are,  to different  degrees, 
uncertain. For us,  uncertainties arise  from the behaviour  of financial  and 
metals markets including the London  Metal Exchange, fluctuations in  interest 
and or exchange rates  and metal prices; from  future integration of  acquired 
businesses; and from numerous other  matters of national, regional and  global 
scale, including  those of  a political,  economic, business,  competitive  or 
regulatory nature. These uncertainties may cause our actual future results  to 
be  materially  different   that  those  expressed   in  our   forward-looking 
statements. We do not undertake to update our forward-looking statements.
