In particular, statements regarding Cogeco Cable's future operating results and economic performance and its objectives and strategies are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain factors and assumptions including expected growth, results of operations, performance and business prospects and opportunities which Cogeco Cable believes are reasonable as of the current date. While management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to Cogeco Cable, they may prove to be incorrect. Cogeco Cable cautions the reader that the current adverse economic conditions make forward-looking information and the underlying assumptions subject to greater uncertainty and that, consequently, they may not materialize, or the results may significantly differ from Cogeco Cable's expectations. It is impossible for Cogeco Cable to predict with certainty the impact that the current economic downturn may have on future results. Forward-looking information is also subject to certain factors, including risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from what Cogeco Cable currently expects. These factors include technological changes, changes in market and competition, governmental or regulatory developments, general economic conditions, the development of new products and services, the enhancement of existing products and services and the introduction of competing products having technological or other advantages, many of which are beyond Cogeco Cable's control. Therefore, future events and results may vary significantly from what management currently foresees. For more exhaustive information on these risks and uncertainties, prospective purchasers should refer to the risk factors described in the management's discussion and analysis of Cogeco Cable for the year ended August 31, 2008 and for the three and six-month period ended February 28, 2009.
