The foregoing risk list of factors is not exhaustive. You should consider carefully the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties that affect the business of ASML described in the risk factors included in ASML's Annual Report on Form 20-F and other documents filed by ASML from time to time with the SEC. ASML disclaims any obligation to update the forward-looking statements contained herein.

2 Numbers have been rounded.

3 The calculation of diluted net income per ordinary share assumes the exercise of options issued under ASML stock option plans and the issue of shares under ASML share plans for periods in which exercises or issues would have a dilutive effect. The calculation of diluted net income per ordinary share does not assume exercise of such options or issuances of shares when such exercises or issuances would be anti-dilutive.

4 In Q4 ASML released EUR 119.5 million of its liability for unrecognized tax benefits after successful conclusion of tax audits in different jurisdictions, which resulted in a net tax benefit of EUR 115.8 million in the fourth quarter. The difference between the amount released in Q4 (EUR 119.5 million) and the full year 2012 (EUR 92.5 million) relates to the additions to the liability for unrecognized tax benefits during the first three quarters of 2012. The net release of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits almost completely offsets the income tax due over ASML’s income before income taxes for the year.

5 The net proceeds from issuance of shares includes an amount of EUR 3,853.9 million related to the Customer Co-Investment Program. The difference of EUR 125.6 million between the capital repayment of EUR 3,728.3 million and the net proceeds from issuance of shares totaling EUR 3,853.9 million related to the Customer Co-Investment Program relates to the capital repayment on ASML’s treasury shares which participated in the Synthetic Share Buyback in November 2012.
