Forward-looking Statements This press release contains, or may contain, "forward-looking statements" concerning Boyd Gaming and Peninsula Gaming, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, the words "believe," "anticipate," "expect," "may," "should," "could," and other future-oriented terms identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements relating to the consummation of the merger. These forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of management and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond BoydGaming's ability to control or estimate precisely and include, without limitation: the ability to obtain governmental or gaming approvals of the merger and the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement, or to satisfy other conditions to the merger on the proposed terms and timeframe; the possibility that the merger does not close when expected or at all; and other risks and uncertainties, including those detailed from time to time in Boyd Gaming's periodic reports (whether under the caption Risk Factors or Forward Looking Statements or elsewhere). Boyd Gaming can give no assurances that such forward-looking statements will prove to have been correct. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this announcement. Neither Boyd Gaming nor any other person undertakes any obligation to update or revise publicly any of the forward-looking statements set out herein, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to be a forecast, projection or estimate of the future financial performance of BoydGaming following the implementation of the merger or otherwise. No statement in this announcement should be interpreted to mean that the earnings per share, profits, margins or cash flows of Boyd Gaming for the current or future financial years would necessarily match or exceed the historical published figures.
