Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to
different degrees, uncertain. For us, particular uncertainties that could
cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in

or other impacts arising in the United States or Europe from developments in

financial and credit markets on the availability and cost of General Electric
Capital Corporation’s (GECC) funding and on our ability to reduce GECC’s asset
levels as planned; the impact of conditions in the housing market and
unemployment rates on the level of commercial and consumer credit defaults;
changes in Japanese consumer behavior that may affect our estimates of
liability for excess interest refund claims (GE Money Japan); pending and
future mortgage securitization claims and litigation in connection with WMC,
which may affect our estimates of liability, including possible loss
estimates; our ability to maintain our current credit rating and the impact on
our funding costs and competitive position if we do not do so; the adequacy of
our cash flow and earnings and other conditions which may affect our ability
to pay our quarterly dividend at the planned level; GECC’s ability to pay
dividends to GE at the planned level; our ability to convert pre-order
commitments into orders; the level of demand and financial performance of the
major industries we serve, including, without limitation, air and rail

regulation and regulatory, investigative and legal proceedings and legal
compliance risks, including the impact of financial services regulation;
strategic actions, including acquisitions, joint ventures and dispositions and
our success in completing announced transactions and integrating acquired
businesses; the impact of potential information technology or data security

including those of a political, economic, business and competitive nature.

undertake to update our forward-looking statements.
