The information contained in this part of the website is subject to, and must be read in conjunction with, all other publicly available information and, where relevant, any further disclosure document(s) published by Pace or ARRIS.
Certain of the documents contained in this part of the website contain forward-looking statements concerning certain trends, expectations, forecasts, estimates, or other forward-looking information affecting or relating to Pace or ARRIS or its industry, products or activities that are intended to qualify for the protections afforded "forward-looking statements" under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other laws and regulations. Forward-looking statements speak only as to the date of the document and may be identified by the use of forward-looking terms such as "may," "will," "expects," "believes," "anticipates," "plans," "estimates," "projects," "targets," "forecasts," "outlook," "impact," "potential," "confidence," "improve," "optimistic," "deliver," "comfortable," "trend", and "seeks," or the negative of such terms or other variations on such terms or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the possibility that a possible Combination will not be completed, failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals or required financing or to satisfy any of the other conditions to the possible Combination, adverse effects on the market price of ARRIS shares and on ARRIS' or PACE's operating results because of a failure to complete the possible Combination, failure to realise the expected benefits of the possible Combination, negative effects relating to the announcement of the possible Combination or any further announcements relating to the possible Combination or the consummation of the possible Combination on the market price of ARRIS shares or PACE Shares, significant transaction costs and/or unknown liabilities, customer reaction to the announcement of the Combination, possible litigation relating to the Combination or the public disclosure thereof, general economic and business conditions that affect the combined companies following the consummation of the possible Combination, changes in global, political, economic, business, competitive, market and regulatory forces, future exchange and interest rates, changes in tax laws or their interpretation or application, regulations, rates and policies, future business Combinations or disposals and competitive developments. These factors are not intended to be an all-encompassing list of risks and uncertainties. Additional information regarding these and other factors can be found in ARRIS' reports filed with the SEC, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. The factors described in the context of such forward-looking statements in this Announcement could cause ARRIS' plans with respect to PACE, ARRIS' or PACE's actual results, performance or achievements, industry results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. 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 this Announcement are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as at the date of this Announcement. ARRIS and PACE expressly disclaim any obligation to release publicly any revisions to forward-looking statements as a result of subsequent events or developments, except as required by law.
In relation to any document, announcement or information contained in this part of the website, the only responsibility accepted by the directors of ARRIS is for the correctness and fairness of its reproduction or presentation unless a responsibility statement in any relevant document expressly provides otherwise.
Documents included in this part of the website speak only at the specified date of the relevant document. Subject to any continuing obligations under applicable law or the Takeover Code or any other relevant rules or regulations, ARRIS expressly disclaims any obligation to disseminate, after the date of the posting of information relating to the Combination on this part of the website, any updates or revisions to any statements in the Combination to reflect any change in expectations or events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statements are based.
