Forward-Looking Statements

 

The statements in this release relating to matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon assumptions of management which are believed to be reasonable at the time made and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially based on factors including, but not limited to: the business cyclicality of the chemical, polymers and refining industries; the availability, cost and price volatility of raw materials and utilities, particularly the cost of oil, natural gas, and associated natural gas liquids; competitive product and pricing pressures; labor conditions; LyondellBasell’s ability to attract and retain key personnel; operating interruptions (including leaks, explosions, fires, weather-related incidents, mechanical failure, unscheduled downtime, supplier disruptions, labor shortages, strikes, work stoppages or other labor difficulties, transportation interruptions, spills and releases and other environmental risks); the supply/demand balances for LyondellBasell’s and LyondellBasell’s joint ventures’ products, and the related effects of industry production capacities and operating rates; LyondellBasell’s ability to achieve expected cost savings and other synergies; LyondellBasell’s ability to successfully execute projects and growth strategies; any proposed business combination, the expected timetable for completing any proposed transactions and the receipt of any required governmental approvals, future financial and operating results, benefits and synergies of any proposed transactions and future opportunities for the combined company; legal and environmental proceedings; tax rulings, consequences or proceedings; technological developments, and LyondellBasell’s ability to develop new products and process technologies; potential governmental regulatory actions; political unrest and terrorist acts; risks and uncertainties posed by international operations, including foreign currency fluctuations; and LyondellBasell’s ability to comply with debt covenants and service LyondellBasell’s debt. The accuracy of our expectations and predictions is also subject to the following risks and uncertainties: (1) the price and time at which we may make any additional share repurchases following completion of the tender offer and the number of shares acquired in such repurchases; and (2) changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including the possibility of intensified international hostilities, acts of terrorism, and changes in conditions of the United States or international lending, capital and financing markets. Additional factors that could cause results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in the “Risk Factors” section of LyondellBasell’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, which can be found at www.LyondellBasell.com on the Investor Relations page and on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at www.sec.gov.
