Certain statements contained in this communication and related documents regarding matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements (as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). These include statements regarding management’s intentions, plans, beliefs, expectations or forecasts for the future including, without limitation, the business combination with Wincor Nixdorf and the entry into and consummation of the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement. Such forward-looking statements are based on the current expectations of Diebold and involve risks and uncertainties because such statements relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future; consequently, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. In addition, risks and uncertainties related to the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement include, but are not limited to, the risk that the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement may not be approved or its effectiveness be delayed as a result of litigation or otherwise or may not occur, risks associated with any contestation or appraisal proceedings in relation to the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement, the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the business combination agreement or the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement, including the failure to obtain regulatory approvals, and risks associated with the impact the business combination agreement, the domination and profit-and-loss transfer agreement and any related litigation may have on the business and operations of the combined company, including on the ability of the combined company to retain and hire key personnel, and maintain relationships with its suppliers. These risks, as well as other risks are more fully discussed in Diebold’s reports filed with the SEC and available at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Any forward looking statements speak only as at the date of this document. Except as required by applicable law, neither Diebold nor Wincor Nixdorf undertakes any obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
