Generally, the words “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “project,” “will” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company’s historical experience and the Company’s present expectations or projections. These risks include, but are not limited to, the risk that the transaction described herein will not be completed or will not provide the expected benefits, or that the Company will not be able to achieve the synergies anticipated, changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including the possibility of intensified international hostilities, acts of terrorism, and changes in either or both the United States and international lending, capital and financial markets, and changes in foreign exchange rates, the effect of legislative initiatives or proposals, statutory changes, governmental or other applicable regulations and/or changes in industry requirements, including privacy regulations, the risks of reduction in revenue from the elimination of existing and potential customers due to consolidation in or new laws or regulations affecting the banking, retail and financial services industries or due to financial failures or other setbacks suffered by firms in those industries, changes in the growth rates of the markets for Company solutions, failures to adapt Company services and products to changes in technology or in the marketplace, internal or external security breaches of our systems, including those relating to the theft of personal information and computer viruses affecting Company software or platforms, and the reactions of customers, card associations, government regulators and others to any such events, the reaction of the Company’s current and potential customers to communications from the Company or its regulators regarding information security, risk management, internal audit or other matters, competitive pressures on pricing related to the Company’s solutions including the ability to attract new, or retain existing, customers, an operational or natural disaster at one of the Company’s major operations centers, and other risks detailed in the Company’s filings with the SEC, including the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, and subsequent SEC filings.
