Cautionary statement regarding forward-looking statements
This report contains certain forward-looking statements relating to the plans and objectives of Diageo. 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’, ‘seek’, ‘target’, ‘expect’, ‘estimate’, ‘intend’, ‘plan’, ‘goal’, ‘believe’, ‘hope’, ‘aims’, ‘continue’, ‘will’, ‘may’, ‘should’, ‘would’,‘could’, or other words of similar meaning. These statements are based on assumptions and assessments made by Diageo in light of their experience and their perception of historical trends, current conditions, future developments and other factors they believe appropriate. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty, because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future and circumstances could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. Although it is believed that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been correct and you are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as at the date of this document. Diageo assumes no obligation to update or correct the information contained in this report (whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise), except as required by applicable law.
