Safe harbor statement under the u.s. private securities litigation reform act of 1995

In addition to historical information, some of the information posted or referenced on this Website contains statements relating to our future business and/or results, including, among others, statements regarding future revenue, sales, income, expenditures, the sufficiency of cash generated from operations, maintenance of majority interest in ASM Pacific Technology Ltd., business strategy, product development, product acceptance, market penetration, market demand, return on investment in new products, facility completion dates and product shipment dates, corporate transactions, restructurings, liquidity and financing matters, outlooks, and any other non- historical information. These statements include certain projections and business trends, which are “forward-looking” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

You can identify these statements by the use of words like “may”, “could”, “should”, “project”, “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “plan”, “estimate”, “forecast”, “potential”, “intend”, “continue” and variations of these words or comparable words. Forward-looking statements do not guarantee future performance and involve risks and uncertainties. You should be aware that our actual results may differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, economic conditions and trends in the semiconductor industry and the duration of industry downturns, currency fluctuations, the timing of significant orders, market acceptance of new products, competitive factors, litigation involving intellectual property, shareholder and other issues, commercial and economic disruption due to natural disasters, terrorist activity, armed conflict or political instability, epidemics and other risks indicated in our most recently filed Annual Report on Form 20-F and other filings from time to time with the SEC and other regulators. The risks described are not the only ones facing ASM. Some risks are not yet known and some that we do not currently believe to be material could later become material. Each of these risks could materially affect our business, revenues, income assets, liquidity and capital resources.  All statements are made as of the date of posting unless otherwise noted, and we assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect future developments or circumstances.
