4. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Some of the information contained in this part of the website may include statements that are or may be deemed to be “forward-looking statements”. Such forward looking statements are prospective in nature and are not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and on numerous assumptions regarding the business strategies and the environment in which GardaWorld’s group or the combined business of GardaWorld’s group and G4S’s group after completion of the Possible Offer (the “Enlarged Group”) will operate in the future and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by those statements. The forward looking statements contained in this part of the website relate to GardaWorld’s group’s or the Enlarged Group’s future prospects, developments and business strategies, the expected timing and scope of the Possible Offer and other statements other than historical facts. In some cases, these forward looking statements can be identified by the use of forward looking terminology, including the terms “can be”, “target”, “expect”, “estimate”, “aims”, “opportunity”, “create”, “represents”, “extends”, “provides”, “enables”, “achieve”, “intends”, “will”, “would”, “could”, “should”, “proposed”, “enhancing” or “believe” or their negatives or other variations or comparable terminology. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. If any one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialises or if any one or more of the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ materially from those expected, estimated or projected. Such forward looking statements should therefore be construed in the light of such factors. GardaWorld, nor any of their associates or directors, officers or advisers provides any representation, assurance or guarantee that the occurrence of the events expressed or implied in any forward looking statements in this part of the website will actually occur. Given these risks and uncertainties, potential investors should not place any reliance on forward looking statements.
Each forward looking statement speaks only at the date the relevant document containing such statement was made available in this part of the website.
