In addition to factors previously disclosed in L3's and Harris' reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere in this communication, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements or historical performance: the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the right of one or both of L3 and Harris to terminate the definitive merger agreement between L3 and Harris or the right of one or both of Harris and Elbit to terminate the definitive agreement between them that provides for the night vision divestiture; the ability to satisfy the remaining outstanding closing conditions to the merger in a timely manner or at all; the ability to obtain regulatory approvals and satisfy other closing conditions to the night vision divestiture in a timely manner or at all; delay in closing the merger or the night vision divestiture; difficulties and delays in integrating the L3 and Harris businesses or fully realizing anticipated cost savings and other benefits; and events beyond L3's, Harris' and Elbit's control, such as acts of terrorism. The foregoing list of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those described in forward-looking statements is not exhaustive. Further information relating to factors that may impact the Harris' and L3's results and forward-looking statements are disclosed in their respective filings with the SEC.
