This release contains certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on management's current expectations and are subject to risks, uncertainty and changes in circumstances, which may cause actual results, performance, financial condition or achievements to differ materially from anticipated results, performance, financial condition or achievements. All statements contained herein that are not clearly historical in nature are forward-looking and the words "anticipate," "believe," "expect," "estimate," "plan," and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have no intention and are under no obligation to update or alter (and expressly disclaim any such intention or obligation to do so) our forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law. In addition to our future financial condition and operating results, the forward-looking statements in this release include statements addressing our ability to execute an acquisition agreement to acquire Deutsch (the "Deutsch Acquisition"), our ability to fund and consummate the Deutsch Acquisition, including the entry into financing arrangements and the receipt of regulatory approvals; and our ability to realize projected financial impacts of and to integrate the Deutsch Acquisition. Examples of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the risk that the execution of an acquisition agreement to purchase Deutsch and to close the Deutsch Acquisition may not be consummated; the risk that a regulatory approval that may be required for the Deutsch Acquisition is not obtained or is obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the risk that revenue opportunities, cost savings and other anticipated synergies from the Deutsch Acquisition may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; the risk that Deutsch's operations will not be successfully integrated into ours; business, economic, competitive and regulatory risks, such as conditions affecting demand for products, particularly the automotive industry and the telecommunications, computer and consumer electronics industries; competition and pricing pressure; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices; natural disasters and political, economic and military instability in countries in which we operate; developments in the credit markets; future goodwill impairment; compliance with current and future environmental and other laws and regulations; and the possible effects on us of changes in tax laws, tax treaties and other legislation.
