Some of the statements made by Level 3 in this press release are
forward-looking in nature. Actual results may differ materially from those
projected in forward-looking statements. Level 3 believes that its primary
risk factors include, but are not limited to: developing new products and
services that meet customer demands and generate acceptable margins;
increasing the volume of traffic on Level 3's network; overcoming the softness
in the economy given its disproportionate effect on the telecommunications
industry; integrating strategic acquisitions; attracting and retaining
qualified management and other personnel; successfully completing commercial
testing of new technology and information systems to support new products and
services, including voice transmission services; ability to meet all of the
terms and conditions of our debt obligations; overcoming Software Spectrum's
reliance on financial incentives, volume discounts and marketing funds from
software publishers; reducing downward pressure of Software Spectrum's margins
as a result of the use of volume licensing and maintenance agreements; and
reducing rate of price compression on certain of the Company's existing
transport and IP services. Additional information concerning these and other
important factors can be found within Level 3's filings with the Securities
