Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains information that may constitute “forward-looking
statements.” Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that
are, to different degrees, uncertain. Generally, the words “anticipate,”
“estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “target” and
similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which generally are
not historical in nature. However, the absence of these words or similar
expressions does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.

These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements
about the separation of Xylem Inc. (the “Company”) from ITT Corporation in
2011, capitalization of the Company, future strategic plans and other
statements that describe the Company’s business strategy, outlook, objectives,
plans, intentions or goals, and any discussion of future operating or
financial performance. All statements that address operating performance,
events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future—
including statements relating to orders, sales, operating margins and earnings
per share growth, and statements expressing general views about future
operating results— are forward-looking statements.

Caution should be taken not to place undue reliance on any such
forward-looking statements because they involve risks, uncertainties and other
factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those
expressed or implied in, or reasonably inferred from, such statements. The
Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any
forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future
events or otherwise, except as required by law. In addition, forward-looking
statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause
actual results to differ materially from the Company’s historical experience
and our present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties
include, but are not limited to, those set forth in Item 1A in our Annual
