There are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the results discussed or implied in forward-looking statements, certain of which are beyond our control. These factors, risks and uncertainties include the following: our reliance on a few customers, particularly the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command and the U.S. Postal Service, with whom we currently have contracts to provide services that generate a large portion of our revenue, our future compliance with the terms of our debt agreements and other material contracts, weakness in our internal controls, general conditions in the aviation industry, including competition and demand for air cargo services, our ability to adequately maintain our fleet, the effect of government laws and regulations, particularly those relating to aviation and transportation, the effect of national, international and regional political and economic conditions, and fluctuations in currency rates, risks related to our operations in dangerous locations and the hazardous cargo we carry, risks related to war, terrorist attacks, expropriation of our property and hostilities directed at U.S. companies abroad, our dependence on certain key personnel, our ability to maintain adequate insurance coverage at favorable prices, and fluctuations in the cost of fuel. If one or more of the assumptions underlying our forward-looking statements proves incorrect, then Evergreen’s actual results, performance or achievements could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by the forward-looking statements contained in this report. Therefore, we caution you not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. We disclaim any obligation, and make no promise, to update risk factors or forward-looking statements or to publicly announce the results of any revision to forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying factors, to reflect new information, as a result of the occurrence of events or developments or otherwise.
