This presentation contains predictions and information on the ŠKODA brand’s
business development. These statements may be spoken or written and can be
recognised by terms such as ‘expects’, ‘anticipates’, ‘intends’, ‘plans’, ‘believes’,
‘seeks’, ‘estimates’, ‘will’ or words with similar meaning. These statements are based
on assumptions relating to the development of individual countries’ economies, and
in particular within the automotive industry, which we have made based on the
information available to us and which we consider to be realistic at the time of going
to press. The estimates given involve a degree of risk, and the actual developments
may differ from those forecasted.

Consequently, any unexpected drop in demand or economic stagnation in our key
sales markets, such as in Western Europe (and especially Germany) or China, will have
a corresponding impact on the development of our business. The same applies in the
event of a significant shift in current exchange rates relative to the EURO, US dollar,
pound sterling, Chinese renminbi.

If any of these or other risks materialise, or if the assumptions underlying any of
these statements prove to be incorrect, the actual results may differ significantly
from those expressed or implied by such statements.

We do not update predictions retrospectively. Such statements are valid on the date
of publication and can be superseded.
