Caution Concerning Forward Looking Statements:
This section contains important information about our forward-looking statements. Please also see our annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q that we file with the SEC and that you can find on our website by clicking here.
The materials on this website may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about FLEETCOR's beliefs, expectations and future performance, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "anticipate," "intend," "believe," "estimate," "plan," "seek," "project," "expect," "may," "will," "would," "could" or "should," the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Examples of forward-looking statements include statements relating to macroeconomic conditions, impact of the Tax Act, our expectations regarding future growth, including future revenue and earnings increases, EBITDA margins, free cash flow projections and annual growth rates; our growth plans and opportunities, including our strategies for future acquisitions, future product expansion, potential client targets and potential geographic expansion; estimated returns on future acquisitions; and our assumptions underlying these expectations.
Forward-looking statements on this website are not a guarantee of performance, and you should not place undue reliance on such statements were written or recorded. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our expectations and projections about future events. Forward-looking statements are subject to many uncertainties and other variable circumstances, such as delays or failures associated with implementation; fuel price and spread volatility; changes in credit risk of customers and associated losses; the actions of regulators relating to payment cards or resulting from investigations; failure to maintain or renew key business relationships; failure to maintain competitive offerings; failure to maintain or renew sources of financing; failure to complete, or delays in completing, anticipated new partnership arrangements or acquisitions and the failure to successfully integrate or otherwise achieve anticipated benefits from such partnerships or acquired businesses; failure to successfully expand business internationally; other risks related to our international operations, including the potential impact to our business as a result of the United Kingdom’s referendum to leave the European Union; the impact of foreign exchange rates on operations, revenue and income; the effects of general economic and political conditions on fueling patterns and the commercial activity of fleets; risks related to litigation; as well as the other risks and uncertainties identified under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, and FLEETCOR’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. These factors could cause our actual results and experience to differ materially from any forward-looking statement. Given these risks and uncertainties, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements included on this website are made only as of the date the statements were written or recorded. We do not undertake, and specifically disclaim, any obligation to update any such statements or to publicly announce the results of any revisions to any of such statements to reflect future events or developments, except as specifically stated or to the extent required by law.
