Forward Looking Information
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a companys future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This Form 8-K/A and the exhibits hereto contain these types of statements. Words such as anticipates, estimates, expects, projects, intends, plans, believes and words or terms of similar substance used in connection with any discussion of future operating results or financial performance identify forward-looking statements.
These forward-looking statements involve certain risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following:
In connection with the Transactions, factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the inability to realize, fully or at all, expected cost savings and other synergies from the Transactions within the expected time frame; (ii) costs or difficulties related to the integration of OMX that are greater than expected; (iii) lower revenues following the Transactions than expected; (iv) regulation related to the business combination of Nasdaq and OMX; and (v) general economic conditions that are less favorable than expected.
Most of these factors are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond our control. You should consider the uncertainty and risk resulting from such uncertainty in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made herein. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements and to carefully review the risk factors and other information detailed in Nasdaqs annual report on Form 10-K and periodic reports filed with the SEC. Except for our ongoing obligations to disclose material information under the federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statement set forth herein, or to report events or the occurrence of unanticipated events. For any forward-looking statements contained herein, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
