This excerpt taken from the PNC 10-Q filed May 9, 2006.
We make statements in this Report, and we may from time to time make other statements, regarding our outlook or expectations for earnings, revenues, expenses and/or other matters regarding or affecting PNC that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as believe, expect, anticipate, intend, outlook, estimate, forecast, project and other similar words and expressions.
Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. We do not assume any duty and do not undertake to update our forward-looking statements. Actual results or future events could differ, possibly materially, from those that we anticipated in our forward-looking statements, and future results could differ materially from our historical performance.
Our forward-looking statements are subject to the following principal risks and uncertainties. We provide greater detail regarding these factors in our 2005 Form 10-K, including in the Risk Factors and Risk Management sections. Our forward-looking statements may also be subject to other risks and uncertainties including those discussed elsewhere in this Report or in our other filings with the SEC.
Also, risks and uncertainties that could affect the results anticipated in forward-looking statements or from historical performance relating to our majority-owned subsidiary BlackRock, Inc. are discussed in more detail in BlackRocks 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K, including in the Risk Factors section, and in BlackRocks other filings with the SEC, accessible on the SECs website at www.sec.gov and on or through BlackRocks website at www.blackrock.com.
