Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

The information on this website may contain certain forward-looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of Philips Lighting and certain of the plans and objectives of Philips Lighting with respect to these items. We caution readers that no forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future performance and that actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include the statements we have made about our strategy, estimates of sales growth, future EBITA and cost savings, future developments in our organic business as well as the benefit of future acquisitions, and our capital position. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to future events and circumstances and there are many factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are subject to, among other things, domestic and global economic and business conditions, the successful implementation of our strategy, our ability to identify and complete successful acquisitions and to integrate those acquisitions into our business, consumer preferences with respect to our existing and new products, our ability to develop and market new products, our ability to realize the benefits of this strategy, the policies and actions of governmental and regulatory authorities, changes in legislation, and the impact of competition – a number of which factors are beyond our control. As a result, our actual future results may differ materially from the plans, goals, and expectations set forth in such forward-looking statements. Additional risks and factors are identified in our documents filed with or furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) including in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F, which is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Any forward-looking statements made by or on our behalf speak only as of the date they are made. We do not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect any changes in expectations with regard thereto or any changes in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. The reader should, however, consult any additional disclosures that we have made or may make in documents we have filed or may file with the SEC.


Dispute resolution

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Netherlands. You agree to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for any disputes, claim or cause of action arising out of, or relating to or in connection with these Terms of Use or your use of this Website, including any disputes relating to the existence or validity of these Terms of Use, provided that you agree to submit any such disputes, claims or causes of action exclusively to the courts of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.



If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be replaced by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.


No waiver

No failure on the part of MLI NA Corporation to enforce any part of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any of MLI NA Corporation's rights under these Terms of Use, whether for past or future actions on the part of any person. Neither the receipt of any funds by MLI NA Corporation nor the reliance of any person on MLI NA Corporation's actions shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of these Terms of Use. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of MLI NA Corporation shall have any legal effect whatsoever.



The headings of the sections of the Terms of Use are inserted for convenience only and shall not constitute a part hereof or affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of the Terms of Use.
