Forward Looking StatementsThis press release includes certain forward-looking statements, estimates and projections that are based on current expectations only, and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, many of which are beyond the control of CenturyLink. Actual events and results may differ materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected if one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if underlying assumptions prove incorrect. Factors that could affect actual results include but are not limited to: CenturyLink's failure to satisfy the conditions to the underwriters' obligation to consummate the offering; corporate developments that could preclude, impair or delay the above-described offering due to restrictions under the federal securities laws; changes in CenturyLink's credit ratings; changes in CenturyLink's cash requirements or financial position; changes in general market, economic, tax, regulatory or industry conditions; and other risks referenced from time to time in CenturyLink's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. There can be no assurances that the above-described offering will be consummated on the terms described above or at all. You should be aware that new factors may emerge from time to time and it is not possible for CenturyLink to identify all such factors, nor can CenturyLink predict the impact of each such factor on its plans, or the extent to which any one or more factors may cause actual results to differ from those reflected in any forward-looking statements. You are further cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this press release. CenturyLink does not undertake any obligation to update any of its forward-looking statements for any reason. SOURCE CenturyLink, Inc.
