The First Amended Disclosure Statement contains certain projections (the Projections) of financial performance for fiscal years 2005 through 2010. The Debtors do not, as a matter of course, publish their business plans, budgets or strategies, or make external projections or forecasts of their anticipated financial position or results of operations. UAL has filed the First Amended Disclosure Statement as an exhibit hereto because such First Amended Disclosure Statement has been filed with the Bankruptcy Court in connection with the Debtors reorganization proceedings. UAL refers to the limitations and qualifications included in the First Amended Disclosure Statement, including without limitation those set forth under the captions Statutory Requirements for Confirmation of the Plan Best Interests of Creditors Test/Liquidation Analysis and Valuation Analysis, Financial Feasibility and Certain Factors to be Considered Prior to Voting Factors Affecting the Value of the Securities to be Issued Under the Plan with respect to the Projections. All information contained in the First Amended Disclosure Statement is subject to change, whether as a result of amendments to the First Amended Plan, actions of third parties or otherwise.
This announcement is not intended to be, nor should it be construed as, a solicitation for a vote on the First Amended Plan. The First Amended Plan will become effective only if it receives the requisite stakeholder approval and is confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court.
