Q investor conference call August 7, 2014 Darren Entwistle, Executive Chair Joe Natale, President and Chief Executive Officer John Gossling, EVP & Chief Financial Officer
2 Today's presentation and answers to questions contain statements about financial and operating performance of TELUS (the Company) and future events, including with respect to future dividend increases and normal course issuer bids to 2016 and 2014 annual targets that are forward-looking. By their nature, forward-looking statements require the Company to make assumptions and predictions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties. There is significant risk that the forward-looking statements will not prove to be accurate. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a number of factors could cause actual future performance and events to differ materially from that expressed in the forward-looking statements. Accordingly, our comments are subject to the disclaimer and qualified by the assumptions (including assumptions for 2014 annual targets, semi-annual dividend increases through 2016 and our ability to sustain and complete multi-year share purchase programs through 2016), qualifications and risk factors referred to in the first and second quarter Management’s discussion and analysis, in the 2013 annual report, and in other TELUS public disclosure documents and filings with securities commissions in Canada (on SEDAR at sedar.com) and in the United States (on EDGAR at sec.gov). Except as required by law, TELUS disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements, and reserves the right to change, at any time at its sole discretion, its current practice of updating annual targets and guidance.
