Forward-looking statements also often use words such as "anticipate", "believe", "intend", "estimate", "expect", "target", "aim", "will", "may" and words of similar meaning.

Many factors could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those projected or implied in any forward-looking statements, including risks relating to the successful combination of Domino with Brother; higher than anticipated costs relating to the combination of Domino with Brother or investment required in Domino to realise expected benefits and facts relating to uncertainties and risks. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof.
