- FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain of the documents contained in this part of the website may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Nucleus and its subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings (the “Nucleus Group”) and IHP and its subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings (the “IHP Group”) and certain plans and objectives of the boards of directors of Nucleus and IHP. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate only to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements often use words such as ‘‘anticipate’’, ‘‘target’’, ‘‘expect’’, ‘‘estimate’’, ‘‘intend’’, ‘‘plan’’, ‘‘goal’’, ‘‘believe’’, ‘‘will’’, ‘‘may’’, ‘‘should’’, ‘‘would’’, ‘‘could’’ or other words of similar meaning. These statements are based on assumptions and assessments made by the Boards of Nucleus and IHP in light of their experience and their perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors they believe appropriate. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty, and the factors described in the context of such forward-looking statements in the relevant documents could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements.
Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the relevant documents. IHP assumes no obligation to update or correct the information contained in the documents in this part of the website. The statements contained in the documents in this part of the website are made as at the date of such documents, unless some other time is specified in relation to them, and service of the relevant documents shall not give rise to any implication that there has been no change in the facts set out in such documents since such date(s).

In relation to any document, announcement or information contained in this part of the website, the only responsibility accepted by the directors of IHP is for the correctness and fairness of its reproduction or presentation unless a responsibility statement in any relevant document expressly provides otherwise.
