Forward Looking Statements
This Web Site may contain statements that, to the extent that they are not recitations of historical fact, constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. Forward-looking statements may include financial and other projections, as well as statements regarding our future plans, objectives or economic performance, or the assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. We use words such as “may”, “would”, “could”, “will”, “likely”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “plan”, “forecast”, “project”, “estimate” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements. Any such forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe are appropriate in the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform to our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks, assumptions and uncertainties.
These risks, assumptions and uncertainties include, without limitation:
The documents provided on this website contain forward-looking statements and information – that is, statements related to future, not past, events. These statements may be identified by words such as “expects,” “looks forward to,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “will,” “project” or words of similar meaning. Such statements are based on the current expectations and certain assumptions of Firemans Contractors Inc. management, and are, therefore, subject to certain risks and uncertainties. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond Firemans Contractors Inc. control, affect Firemans Contractors Inc. operations, performance, business strategy and results and could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Firemans Contractors Inc. to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
In particular, Firemans Contractors Inc. is strongly affected by changes in general economic and business conditions as these directly impact its processes, customers and suppliers. This may negatively impact our revenue development and the realization of greater capacity utilization as a result of growth. Yet due to their diversity, not all of Firemans Contractors Inc. businesses are equally affected by changes in economic conditions; considerable differences exist in the timing and magnitude of the effects of such changes. Uncertainties arise from, among other things, the risk of customers delaying the conversion of recognized orders into revenue or cancelling recognized orders, of prices declining as a result of adverse market conditions by more than is currently anticipated by Firemans Contractors Inc. management or of functional costs increasing in anticipation of growth that is not realized as expected. Other factors that may cause Firemans Contractors Inc. results to deviate from expectations include developments in the financial markets, including fluctuations in interest and exchange rates (in particular in relation to the U.S. dollar and the currencies of emerging markets such as China, India and Brazil), in commodity and equity prices, in debt prices (credit spreads) and in the value of financial assets generally. Any changes in interest rates or other assumptions used in calculating obligations for pension plans and similar commitments may impact Firemans Contractors Inc. defined benefit obligations and the anticipated performance of pension plan assets resulting in unexpected changes in the funded status of Firemans Contractors Inc. pension and other post-employment benefit plans. Any increase in market volatility, deterioration in the capital markets, decline in the conditions for the credit business, uncertainty related to the subprime, financial market and liquidity crises, or fluctuations in the future financial performance of the major industries served by Firemans Contractors Inc. may have unexpected effects on Firemans Contractors Inc. results. Furthermore, Firemans Contractors Inc. faces risks and uncertainties in connection with: disposing of business activities, certain strategic reorientation measures; the performance of its equity interests and strategic alliances; the challenge of integrating major acquisitions, implementing joint ventures and other significant portfolio measures; the introduction of competing products or technologies by other companies or market entries by new competitors; changing competitive dynamics (particularly in developing markets); the risk that new products or services will not be accepted by customers targeted by Firemans Contractors Inc.; changes in business strategy; the interruption of our supply chain, including the inability of third parties to deliver parts, components and services on time resulting for example from natural disasters; the outcome of pending investigations, legal proceedings and actions resulting from the findings of, or related to the subject matter of, such investigations; the potential impact of such investigations and proceedings on Firemans Contractors Inc.’s business, including its relationships with governments and other customers; the potential impact of such matters on Firemans Contractors Inc. financial statements, and various other factors. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the relevant forward-looking statement as expected, anticipated, intended, planned, believed, sought, estimated or projected. Firemans Contractors Inc. neither intends to, nor assumes any obligation to, update or revise these forward-looking statements in light of developments which differ from those anticipated.
