Certain statements and/or other information included in this Annual Report may not be historical facts and may constitute ‘forward looking statements’ within the meaning of Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and Section 2(1)(e) of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, each as amended.
The words ‘believe’, ‘expect’, ‘anticipate’, ‘intend’, ‘estimate’, ‘plans’, ‘forecast’, ‘project’, ‘will’, ‘may’, ‘should’ and similar expressions may identify forward looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. Forward looking statements include statements concerning our plans, expectations, projections, objectives, targets, goals, strategies, future events, future revenues, operations or performance, capital expenditures, ﬁnancing needs, our plans or intentions relating to the expansion or contraction of our business as well as speciﬁc acquisitions and dispositions, our competitive strengths and weaknesses, our plans or goals relating to forecasted production, reserves, ﬁnancial position and future operations and development, our business strategy and the trends we anticipate in the industry and the political, economic, social and legal environment in which we operate, and other information that is not historical information, together with the assumptions underlying these forward looking statements.
By their very nature, forward looking statements involve inherent risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially diﬀerent from results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions regarding our present and future business strategies and the political, economic, social and legal environment in which we will operate in the future. We do not make any representation, warranty or prediction that the results anticipated by such forward-looking statements will be achieved, and such forward-looking statements represent, in each case, only one of many possible scenarios and should not be viewed as the most likely or standard scenario. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update any forward-looking statements to reﬂect actual results, changes in assumptions or in any other factors aﬀecting such statements.
