These data do not represent forecasts within the meaning of European Regulation 809/2004.
The forward-looking information and statements in these documents are based on economic data and assumptions made in a specific regulatory, competitive and economic environment. They may prove inaccurate in the future and depend on risk factors that could lead to significant differences between actual and intended results, such as, in particular, exchange rate fluctuations, the price of petroleum products, the ability to achieve cost reductions or efficiency gains without disrupting operations, considerations of environmental regulations and general financial and economic conditions. Certain financial information is also based on estimates, particularly when assessing the recoverable amount of assets and the amounts of any asset depreciation.
Neither TOTAL, nor any of its subsidiaries, undertakes or assumes any responsibility to investors or other interested parties for updating or revising, in whole or in part, the forward-looking statements and information, trends or objectives described in these documents, especially in the light of new information or future events. Additional information on the factors, risks and uncertainties that may affect the financial results or the activities of the group can also be found in the most recent version of the reference document that the Company has submitted to the French Autorité des marchés financiers and of the Form 20-F filed by the Company with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
