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.
