Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking
Information
Except for the historical information contained herein, certain of the matters discussed in this communication constitute “forward-
looking statements” within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, both as amended by
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “anticipate,” “estimate,”
“expect,” “predict,” “project,” “future”, “potential,” “intend,” “seek to,” “plan,” “assume,” “believe,” “target,” “forecast,” “goal,”
“objective,” “continue” or the negative of such terms or other variations thereof and words and terms of similar substance used in
connection with any discussion of future plans, actions, or events identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking
statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding benefits of the proposed merger, integration plans and expected
synergies, the expected timing of completion of the transaction, anticipated future financial and operating performance and results,
including estimates for growth. These statements are based on the current expectations of management of Exelon Corporation
(Exelon) and Pepco Holdings, Inc. (PHI), as applicable. There are a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results
to differ materially from the forward-looking statements included in this communication. For example, (1) PHI may be unable to obtain
shareholder approval required for the merger; (2) the companies may be unable to obtain regulatory approvals required for the
merger, or required regulatory approvals may delay the merger or cause the companies to abandon the merger; (3) conditions to the
closing of the merger may not be satisfied; (4) an unsolicited offer of another company to acquire assets or capital stock of Exelon or
PHI could interfere with the merger; (5) problems may arise in successfully integrating the businesses of the companies, which may
result in the combined company not operating as effectively and efficiently as expected; (6) the combined company may be unable to
achieve cost-cutting synergies or it may take longer than expected to achieve those synergies; (7) the merger may involve unexpected
costs, unexpected liabilities or unexpected delays, or the effects of purchase accounting may be different from the companies’
expectations; (8) the credit ratings of the combined company or its subsidiaries may be different from what the companies expect;
(9) the businesses of the companies may suffer as a result of uncertainty surrounding the merger;

the companies may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors. Other unknown or
unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on future results, performance or achievements of the
combined company. Therefore, forward-looking statements are not guarantees or assurances of future performance, and
actual results could differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. Discussions of some of these
other important factors and assumptions are contained in Exelon’s and PHI’s respective filings with the Securities and
