You Should Not Unduly Rely on Any Forward—Looking Information

This website may contain information that includes or is based upon forward—looking statements within the meaning of the United States securities laws. Forward—looking statements include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts, and can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “project,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “plan” or “continue.” These forward—looking statements are based upon Alleghany's current plans or expectations and are subject to a number of uncertainties and risks that could significantly affect current plans, anticipated actions and Alleghany's future financial condition and results. These uncertainties and risks include, but are not limited to, those relating to conducting operations in a competitive environment and conducting operations in foreign countries, effects of acquisition and disposition activities, adverse loss development for events insured by Alleghany's insurance operations in either the current year or prior years, general economic and political conditions, including the effects of a prolonged United States or global economic downturn or recession, changes in costs, including changes in labor costs, energy costs and raw material prices, variations in political, economic or other factors such as currency exchange rates, inflation rates or recessionary or expansive trends, changes in market prices of Alleghany's significant equity investments, tax, legal and regulatory changes, extended labor disruptions, significant weather— related or other natural or human—made disasters, especially with respect to their impact on losses at Alleghany's reinsurance subsidiaries, civil unrest or other external factors over which Alleghany has no control, and changes in Alleghany's plans, strategies, objectives, expectations or intentions, which may happen at any time at Alleghany's discretion. As a consequence, current plans, anticipated actions, and future financial condition and results may differ materially from those expressed in any forward—looking statements made on this website. Accordingly, forward—looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and there can be no assurance that the results described in such forward—looking statements will be realized. Alleghany specifically disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward—looking statement(s), whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.
