The materials on this portion of the website may contain statements which constitute “forward-looking statements” about AMEC and Foster Wheeler. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements with regard to the outcome of an offer, if made, any statements about potential cost synergies, revenue benefits or integration costs, statements regarding plans, objectives and expectations with respect to future operations, events and/or performance and all other statements other than historical facts. estimated synergies resulting from a transaction with Foster Wheeler and are generally identified by words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “will,” “may,” “continue,” “should” and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond the control of AMEC or Foster Wheeler.
