Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release including, without limitation, statements regarding future financial results and performance, plans and objectives, capital expenditures and the Company’s or management’s beliefs, expectations or opinions, are forward-looking statements. These statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are those that predict or describe future events or trends and that do not relate solely to historical matters. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified as statements containing the words “believe,” “expect,” “may,” “could,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “will,” “plan,” “assume,” “seek to” or other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in forward-looking statements as a result of factors, risks and uncertainties over many of which the Company has no control. These risks, uncertainties and factors specific to the Alcan Cable acquisition include, but are not limited to: (i) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that would result in the termination or delay of the proposed Alcan Cable acquisition, (ii) the inability to complete the proposed acquisition due to the failure of the Company or Alcan Cable to satisfy any of the conditions to the closing of the acquisition, including the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals, (iii) the risk that the proposed acquisition could disrupt the plans and operations of the Company, Alcan Cable or both and the potential difficulties of employee retention as a result of the acquisition, and (iv) the risk that the Company may not realize the expected financial and other benefits from the proposed acquisition. The foregoing factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the risk factors described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 23, 2012, as well as any current and periodic reports filed with the SEC subsequent to such date. Forward looking statements reflect the views and assumptions of management as of the date of this Current Report with respect to future events. The Company does not undertake, and hereby disclaims, any obligation, unless required to do so by applicable securities laws, to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or other factors.
