This presentation and the associated slides and discussion contain certain forward-looking statements regarding the change to international financial reporting standards and their effects and, in particular, the value of net charges in other businesses and corporate, the impact (if any) on the group’s debt levels and financing costs, the impact (if any) on the group’s hedging activities, the impact (if any) on the group’s tax situation, effective tax rate and cash tax rate, the impact (if any) on the economic value of the group’s business, changes (if any) to the cash generated and earnings, and the impact (if any) on the group’s accounting results - earnings and capital employed and consequent changes to ratios derived therefrom. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will or may occur in the future. Actual results may differ from those expressed in such statements, depending on a variety of factors, including the timing of bringing new fields on stream; future levels of industry product supply; demand and pricing; operational problems; general economic conditions; political stability and economic growth in relevant areas of the world; changes in laws and governmental regulations; exchange rate fluctuations; development and use of new technology; changes in public expectations and other changes in business conditions; the actions of competitors; natural disasters and adverse weather conditions; wars and acts of terrorism or sabotage; and other factors discussed elsewhere in this presentation.
