11. Information on predictive statements

Internet pages, their contents and other documents on this website contain amongst other things predictive statements on future developments which depend on the current assessments of the management. Words such as "anticipate", "presume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "can/could", "plan", "project", "should" and similar phrases indicate such predictive statements. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties. Some examples of this are a cyclical downturn in Europe or North America, changes in rates of exchange, rates of interest, and raw material prices, the introduction of products by competitors, higher sales inducements, the successful introduction of the new business, interruptions to deliveries of production materials caused by bottlenecks, strikes by staff or supplier insolvency, as well as a fall in the resale price of used vehicles.

If one of these uncertainty factors or other unforeseen occur or the assumptions on which the statements are based prove to be incorrect, the actual results could deviate significantly from those given or implied in the predictions. We do not intend to, nor do we accept the responsibility for continual updating of predictive statements, as these are based exclusively on the circumstances on their day of publication.
