Notice to US investors
The FSP is subject to disclosure and procedural requirements of the United Kingdom which are different from those in the United States. Neither the US Securities and Exchange Commission, nor any securities commission of any state of the United States has approved the FSP, passed upon the fairness of the FSP or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of any information in this part of the website. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.
The financial information included in certain documents contained in the Materials have been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards, and thus may not be comparable to financial information of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
It may be difficult for US holders of shares to enforce their rights and claims arising out of the US federal securities laws. Holders in the United States may not be able to sue a non-US company or its officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel a non-US company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a US court’s judgment.
Cautionary note regarding forward-looking statements
These Materials, including any information included or incorporated by reference, may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Hurricane. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the current expectation of the management of that company and are naturally subject to uncertainty and changes in circumstances. These forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as "will", "may", "should", "could", "would", "can", "believes", "intends", "expects", "indicates", “aims” , "anticipates" or similar words or terms or by discussions of, inter alia, strategies, goals or plans. Forward-looking statements include statements relating to the following: (i) future capital expenditures, expenses, revenues, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, dividend policy, losses and future prospects; (ii) business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of Hurricane's operations and potential synergies resulting from the FSP; and (iii) the effects of government regulation on Hurricane's businesses.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. There are several factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in forward-looking statements. The factors include, but are not limited to, changes in the global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax rates and future business combinations or dispositions. Due to such uncertainties, no assurance can be given that any forward-looking statement will prove to be correct in the future.
The forward-looking statements contained in the Materials are based on numerous assumptions and assessments made in light of Hurricane's experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, business strategies, operating environment, future developments and other factors considered appropriate. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct and persons reading the Materials are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as at the date of the relevant document or announcement reproduced in the Materials. Hurricane expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statements as a result of subsequent events or developments (whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise), except as required by law or regulation.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, no statement in the Materials is intended to constitute a profit forecast or profit estimate for any period and no statement should be interpreted to mean that earnings per share will necessarily be greater or lesser than those for the relevant preceding financial periods of Hurricane.
It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the full observance of any relevant laws and regulatory requirements. If you are in any doubt, you should not continue to seek to access this area of the website.
You should not forward, transmit or show the announcements, information or documents contained in this area of the website to any person.
