This presentation and the accompanying oral presentation contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “projected”, “estimate”, “may”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “plan”, “intend” or similar words suggesting future outcomes or statements regarding an outlook. All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in these slides are forward-looking statements.
Forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc.’s (“Couche-Tard”) control, may cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in its forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the effects of the integration of acquired businesses and the ability to achieve projected synergies, uncertainty related to the duration and severity of the current COVID-19 pandemic, fluctuations in margins on motor fuel sales, competition in the convenience store and retail motor fuel industries, foreign exchange rate fluctuations, and such other risks as described in detail from time to time in documents filed by Couche-Tard with securities regulatory authorities in Canada, including those risks described in Couche- Tard’s management’s discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the year ended April 26, 2020. Couche-Tard’s MD&A and other publicly filed documents are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
