Transcript of Alterra presentation DEC


2. Forward-Looking InformationThis Presentation contains certain forward-looking information within the meaning of Canadian securities laws, which may include, but isnot limited to, statements with respect to future events or future performance, managements expectations regarding Alterras productioncapacity, results of operations, cash flows, revenues and requirements for capital, future demand for and prices of electricity, and Alterrasbusiness prospects and opportunities.These statements reflect the current views of Alterra with respect to future events and are necessarily based upon a number ofassumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by Alterra, are inherently subject to significant business, economic, politicaland social uncertainties and contingencies. Many factors, both known and unknown, could cause Alterras actual results, performance orachievements to be materially different from the results, performance or achievements that are or may be expressed or implied by suchforward-looking statements contained in this presentation, and Alterra has made assumptions based on or related to many of thesefactors. Such factors include, without limitation: fluctuations in currency markets (particularly with respect to the Icelandic krona, the U.S.dollar and Canadian dollar); risks related to the technological and operational nature of Alterras business; changes in national or regionalgovernments, legislation, regulation, permitting or taxation; political or economic developments in Canada, the United States, Iceland orother countries where Alterra may carry on business; risks and hazards associated with the business of renewable energy generation;risks relating to the creditworthiness and financial condition of suppliers and other parties which Alterra will deal with; inadequateinsurance or inability to obtain insurance to cover these risks and hazards; employee relations; relationships with and claims by localcommunities and First Nations; availability and costs of equipment and labour; litigation; the success and timely completion of plannedexpansion and development programs; the growth rate in net electricity consumption; support and demand for renewable energy;government initiatives to support the development of renewable energy generation; the reliability of technical data and capital expenditureestimates; and availability of capital to fund development and expansion programs. Forward-looking information and statements are alsobased upon the assumption that none of the identified risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking information and statements will occur.Although Alterra has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factorsthat cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated, described or intended. There can be no assurance that the forward-lookinginformation will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information.Accordingly, prospective investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. Other than as required by applicablesecurities laws, Alterra does not assume any obligation to update or revise such forward-looking information to reflect new events orcircumstances.2 3.
