Historically, Dynegy’s performance has deviated, in some cases materially, from its cash flow and earnings estimates.

Specifically, Dynegy makes reference to, and incorporates herein by reference, the section entitled "Risk Factors" in its most recent Form 10-K, as amended, and subsequent reports on Form 10-Q. In addition to the risks and uncertainties set forth in Dynegy's SEC filings, the forward-looking statements described in this press release and the investor presentation slides could be affected by, among other things, (i) assumptions used to develop the 2013 guidance estimates do not materialize, including but not limited to assumptions regarding gas prices and basis risk; (ii) beliefs and assumptions relating to liquidity, available borrowing capacity and capital resources generally, including the extent to which such liquidity could be affected by poor economic and financial market conditions or new regulations and any resulting impacts on financial institutions and other current and potential counterparties; (iii) the anticipated benefits of the overall restructuring activities, Dynegy’s reorganization value and the effects of fresh start accounting; (iv) limitations on Dynegy's ability to utilize previously incurred federal net operating losses or alternative minimum tax credits; (v) expectations regarding our compliance with the DMG and DPC Credit Agreements, including collateral demands, interest expense and other payments; (vi) the timing and anticipated benefits of any repayments under the DMG and DPC Credit Agreements and the timing and benefits of any refinancing of the DMG and DPC Credit Agreements; (vii) the timing and anticipated benefits to be achieved through Dynegy's company-wide cost savings programs, including its PRIDE initiative; (vii) expectations regarding environmental matters, including costs of compliance, availability and adequacy of emission credits, and the impact of ongoing proceedings and potential regulations or changes to current regulations, including those relating to climate change, air emissions, cooling water intake structures, coal combustion byproducts, and other laws and regulations to which Dynegy is, or could become, subject; (ix) beliefs, assumptions and projections regarding the demand for power, generation volumes and commodity pricing, including natural gas prices and the impact on such prices from shale gas proliferation and the timing of a recovery in natural gas prices, if any; (x) sufficiency of, access to and costs associated with coal, fuel oil and natural gas inventories and transportation thereof; (xi) beliefs and assumptions about market competition, generation capacity and regional supply and demand characteristics of the wholesale power generation market, including the anticipation of higher market pricing over the longer term; (xii) the effectiveness of Dynegy's strategies to capture opportunities presented by changes in commodity prices and to manage its exposure to energy price volatility; (xiii) beliefs and assumptions about weather and general economic conditions; (xiv) projected operating or financial results, including anticipated cash flows from operations, revenues and profitability; (xv) Dynegy's focus on safety and its ability to efficiently operate its assets so as to capture revenue generating opportunities and operating margins; (xvi) beliefs about the costs and scope of the ongoing demolition and site remediation efforts at the South Bay power generation facility in California; (xvii) beliefs about the outcome of legal, administrative, legislative and regulatory matters, including the impact of final rules regarding derivatives issued by the CFTC under the Dodd-Frank Act; (xviii) expectations regarding our ability to effectively raise capital in light of the recent Chapter 11 cases; (xix) our ability to consummate the Roseton and Danskammer facilities sale transactions in accordance with the Settlement Agreement, the Roseton and Danskammer Chapter 11 Joint Plan of Liquidation and the Danskammer and Roseton APAs; and (xx) expectations regarding performance standards and estimates regarding capital and maintenance expenditures.

They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond Dynegy's control.
