The Information may contain "forward-looking statements" relating to Crest Nicholson and the business sectors in which they operate. Generally, the words will, may, should, continue, believes, expects, intends, anticipates, forecast, plan and project or similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Such statements reflect Crest Nicholson’s current views with respect to future events and are subject to risks, assumptions and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Many of these risks, assumptions and uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond the company's abilities to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions, changes in general economic and business conditions and the behaviour of other market participants. Crest Nicholson cannot give any assurance that the forward-looking statements will prove to have been correct. The reader should not, therefore, place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of the relevant document(s). Crest Nicholson does not undertake any obligation to update or revise publicly any of the forward-looking statements set out in the Information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent legally required.
