From time to time, Sun Life Financial Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Company", "we" or "our") make written or oral forward-looking statements within the meaning of certain securities laws, including the "safe harbour" provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and any applicable Canadian securities legislation. Certain forward-looking statements made during the presentation (the "presentation") may include (i) statements relating to our growth strategies, financial objectives, future results of operations, and strategic goals; (ii) statements that are predictive in nature or that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions; and (iii) statements that include words such as "aim", "anticipate", "assumption", "believe", "could", "estimate", "expect", "goal", "intend", "may", "objective", "outlook", "plan", "project", "seek", "should", "initiatives", "strategy", "strive", "target", "will" and similar expressions.
Future results and shareholder value may differ materially from those expressed in forward-looking statements due to, among other factors:
- the assumptions and other factors set out in the presentation;
- the matters set out in the Company's 2012 annual MD&A under the headings Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates and Risk Management;
- the risk factors set out in the Company's 2012 AIF under Risk Factors; and
- other factors detailed in the Company's annual and interim financial statements and any other filings with Canadian and U.S. securities regulators made available at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov.
By their very nature, forward-looking statements are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties and are based on several assumptions, both general and specific, which give rise to the possibility that actual results or events could differ materially from our expectations expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. As a result, we cannot guarantee that any forward-looking statement will materialize and undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in the presentation describe our expectations, estimates and projected future events at the date of the presentation and are not statements of historical facts. Except as may be required by Canadian securities laws, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in the presentation. Forward-looking statements are presented for the purpose of assisting investors and others in understanding our expected financial position and results of operations as at the date of the presentation, as well as our objectives, strategic priorities and business outlook, and in obtaining a better understanding of our anticipated operating environment. Readers are cautioned that such forward-looking statements may not be appropriate for other purposes.
