Jeff Evanson – VP Investor Relations
Certain statements in this presentation, including statements relating to the ongoing development, quality improvements, production, supply chain, demand for and delivery expectations of Model S; the ability to achieve revenue and gross margin targets; and the ability of Tesla to execute on its new interactive retail strategy, future store, service center and Supercharger network opening and expansion plans; and statements regarding future vehicles such as right hand drive Model S, Model X and Gen III are “forward-looking statements” that are subject to risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations, and as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those projected. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Although Tesla believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, Tesla cannot guarantee that the future results, performance or events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur.
The following important factors, without limitation, could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements: delays in the ramping of production and delivery of Model S, including the ability of suppliers to supply parts at desired quality levels and quantities, market acceptance of electric vehicles in general and new Tesla vehicle models, specifically Model S and Model X; Tesla’s ability to control the costs associated with our business; Tesla’s ability to execute on its plans for its interactive retail strategy and for new store, service center and Supercharger openings as well as the risks and uncertainties identified under the section captioned “Risk Factors” in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 9, 2013. Except as required by law, Tesla disclaims any obligation to update information contained in these forward-looking statements.
