Caution About Forward-Looking Statements

This Website includes forward-looking statements and information, which reflect the current view of MDA with respect to future events and financial performance. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "anticipate", "plan", "foresee", "believe" or “continue” or the negatives of such terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Any such forward-looking statements are based on MDA's current expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions made in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends. Any such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and MDA’s actual results of operations could differ materially from historical results or current expectations.

MDA cautions readers that should certain risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary significantly from those expected. The risks that could cause actual results to differ from current expectations include changes in government policies, priorities, funding levels, contracts or regulations and the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals; growth in the commercial satellite market is dependent on the growth in the businesses of the Company’s customers and the ability of its customers to develop new services; failure of third party subcontractors to complete contracts for which the Company is the prime contractor and the limited number of suppliers for some components; risks of performance on firm fixed price construction contracts and termination of contracts by customers for convenience; changes in estimates of total revenues and costs on contracts and non-receipt of payments on failure of the Company’s satellites and products to perform successfully; potential for product liability or the occurrence of defects in products or systems and resulting loss of revenue and harm to the Company’s reputation; quality issues and failure of systems to meet performance requirements or to by accepted by a customer; inclusion of satellite performance incentives in many of the Company’s customer contracts; potential for component failure or performance issues on the Company’s on-orbit satellites and resulting loss of revenue and harm to MDA’s reputation and failure of the Company to receive data for sales or of customers to purchase data; failure of the Company to manage its acquisitions and breaches of contract and indemnities and related risks on divestitures; certain customers are highly leveraged and may not fulfil their contractual payment obligations; MDA’s ability to obtain certain satellite construction contracts depends, in part, on its ability to provide the customer with financing and any financing provided by the Company may not be repaid or the Company may be called upon to make payments; the Company’s final share of the settlement obligation may differ significantly from its estimate; many of the Company’s costs are fixed and MDA may not be able to cut costs sufficiently to maintain profitability in the event of a downturn in its business; the availability of facility space and qualified personnel may affect MDA’s ability to perform its contracts as efficiently as planned; dependence on electronic systems may be subject to data and system security threats; detrimental reliance on third parties for data; dependence on key employees, potential for work stoppages and lack of oversight over a U.S. proxy board and management; failure to anticipate changes in technology, technical standards and offerings or comply with the requisite standards; failure to maintain technological advances and offer new products to retain customers and market position; significant competition with larger or greater resources; potential infringement of the intellectual property rights of others through licensed software or otherwise; inadequate protection of the Company’s intellectual property rights; exposure to foreign currency fluctuations; changes in law and economic and political conditions; inability of suppliers or subcontractors to effect technology transfer; changes in customer security requirements and the resulting cancellation of contracts; failure to maintain business alliances; uncertainty in financing arrangements and failure to obtain required financing on acceptable terms; changes in regulations, telecommunication standards and laws due to political and economic instability in the countries in which MDA conducts business; changes in U.S. and foreign laws and regulations, including U.S. export control and economic sanction laws, governing MDA’s business; wrongful call on letters of credit, guarantees and performance bonds; insufficient insurance against material claims or losses; exposure to fines and/or legal sanctions under anti-corruption laws; and failure to comply with environmental regulations.
