In particular, this presentation contains forward-looking statements with respect to, among others things, business objectives, expected growth, results of operations, performance, business projects, opportunities and financial results. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements.

Many factors could cause AltaGas’ or any of its business segments’ actual results, performance or achievements to vary from those described in this presentation, including without limitation those listed above as well as the assumptions upon which they are based proving incorrect. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive. Factors which could cause results or events to differ from current expectations are: capital resources and liquidity risk, market risk, commodity price risk, operational risk, volume declines, weather, construction, counterparty risk, environmental risk, regulatory risk and labour relations. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should assumptions underlying forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in this presentation as intended, planned, anticipated, believed, sought, proposed, estimated or expected, and such forward-looking statements included in this presentation herein should not be unduly relied upon.
