Canadian securities regulators have established a system requiring regular disclosure of financial and operating information (including annual and interim financial statements, annual and interim management’s discussions and analyses (“MD&As”), annual information forms (“AIFs”) and management proxy circulars prepared in connection with annual and special meetings of Power Corporation), as well as periodic disclosure upon the occurrence of certain events (collectively, “Disclosure Documents”).
Information available on this Site includes certain Disclosure Documents and other financial and operating information relating to Power Corporation. Any such information, whether in a Disclosure Document or otherwise, may not be the most current source of information regarding Power Corporation and its affiliates. Power Corporation disclaims any intention or obligation to update such information. Any such information available on this Site, including in Disclosure Documents, shall be deemed to be modified or superseded to the extent that subsequent information on the Site, including information in later-dated Disclosure Documents, modifies or supersedes such information. The subsequent information need not state that it has modified or superseded prior information available on this Site. Disclosure Documents may be found at www.sedar.com.
Certain statements on this Site, including in Disclosure Documents, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements based on certain assumptions and reflect Power Corporation’s current expectations, or with respect to disclosure regarding Power Corporation’s public subsidiaries, reflect such subsidiaries’ disclosed current expectations. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purposes of assisting the reader in understanding the Corporation’s financial performance, financial position and cash flows as at and for the periods ended on certain dates, as well as the Corporation’s business, operations, prospects and risks at a point in time in the context of historical and possible future developments, or to otherwise present information about management’s current expectations and plans relating to the future and the reader is cautioned that such statements may not be appropriate for other purposes. These statements may include, without limitation, statements regarding the operations, business, financial condition, expected financial results, performance, prospects, opportunities, priorities, targets, goals, ongoing objectives, strategies and outlook of the Corporation and its subsidiaries, including the fintech strategy, the expected impact of pandemics or other public health crises on the Corporation’s and its subsidiaries’ operations, results and dividends, as well as the outlook for North American and international economies for the current fiscal year and subsequent periods, financial targets, ratios and cash management expectations, the intended effects and timing of material transactions, acquisitions and dispositions, fundraising activities and capital commitments, share buybacks and redemptions of securities of the Corporation and its subsidiaries, forward-looking accounting estimates, impacts and other determinations. Forward-looking statements include statements that are predictive in nature, depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or include words such as "expects", "anticipates", "plans", "believes", "estimates", "seeks", "intends", "targets", "projects", "forecasts" or negative versions thereof and other similar expressions, or future or conditional verbs such as "may", "will", "should", "would" and "could".
By its nature, this information is subject to inherent risks and uncertainties that may be general or specific and which give rise to the possibility that expectations, forecasts, predictions, projections or conclusions will not prove to be accurate, that assumptions may not be correct and that objectives, strategic goals and priorities will not be achieved. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond the Corporation’s and its subsidiaries’ control, affect the operations, performance and results of the Corporation and its subsidiaries and their businesses, and could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations of estimated or anticipated events or results. These factors include, but are not limited to: the impact or unanticipated impact of general economic, political and market factors in North America and internationally, fluctuations in interest rates, inflation and foreign exchange rates, monetary policies, business investment and the health of local and global equity and capital markets, management of market liquidity and funding risks, risks related to investments in private companies and illiquid securities, risks associated with financial instruments, changes in accounting policies and methods used to report financial condition (including uncertainties associated with significant judgments, estimates and assumptions), the effect of applying future accounting changes, business competition, operational and reputational risks, technological changes, cybersecurity risks, changes in government regulation and legislation, changes in tax laws, unexpected judicial or regulatory proceedings, catastrophic events, man-made disasters, terrorist attacks, wars and other conflicts, or an outbreak of a public health pandemic or other public health crises, the Corporation’s and its subsidiaries’ ability to complete strategic transactions, integrate acquisitions and implement other growth strategies, the Corporation’s and its subsidiaries’ success in anticipating and managing the foregoing factors, and with respect to forward-looking statements of the Corporation’s subsidiaries, the disclosed factors identified by such subsidiaries.
The reader is cautioned to consider these and other factors, uncertainties and potential events carefully and not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Information contained in forward-looking statements is based upon certain material assumptions that were applied in drawing a conclusion or making a forecast or projection, including management’s perceptions of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other considerations that are believed to be appropriate in the circumstances, including the availability of cash resources, that any required approvals (including regulatory approvals) for strategic transactions, acquisitions, divestitures or other growth or optimization strategies will be received when and on such terms as are expected, and that the list of factors in the previous paragraph, collectively, are not expected to have a material impact on the Corporation and its subsidiaries, and with respect to forward-looking statements of the Corporation’s subsidiaries, the risks identified by such subsidiaries in their respective disclosure documents filed with the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and available at www.sedar.com. While the Corporation considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to management, they may prove to be incorrect.
Other than as specifically required by applicable Canadian law, the Corporation undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, whether as a result of new information, future events or results, or otherwise.
Additional information about the risks and uncertainties of the Corporation’s business and material factors or assumptions on which information contained in forward-looking statements is based is provided in its disclosure materials, including its most recent annual (and subsequent interim) Management’s Discussion and Analysis and Annual Information Form, filed with the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and available at www.sedar.com.
