ADDITIONAL U.S. INFORMATION

The FSP relates to the securities of an English company and is subject to UK procedural and disclosure requirements that are different from those of the United States. Any financial statements or other financial information included on this Microsite may have been prepared in accordance with non-US accounting standards that may not be comparable to the financial statements of US companies or companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. It may be difficult for US holders of shares to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under US federal securities laws in connection with the FSP, since eve is located in a country other than the United States, and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of countries other than the United States. US holders of shares may not be able to sue eve or its officers or directors in a non-US court for violations of US securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel eve and its affiliates to subject themselves to the jurisdiction or judgment of a US court.

(3) FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Forward looking statements include statements relating to the following: (i) future capital expenditures, expenses, revenues, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, dividend policy, losses and future prospects; (ii) business and management strategies and the expansion and growth of eve's operations and potential synergies resulting from the FSP; and (iii) the effects of government regulation on eve's business.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect expected results and are based on certain key assumptions. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied in any forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the satisfaction of any conditions to the FSP, as well as additional factors, such as changes in political and economic conditions, changes in the level of capital investment, retention of key employees, changes in customer habits, success of business and operating initiatives and restructuring objectives, impact of any acquisitions or similar transactions, changes in customers' strategies and stability, competitive product and pricing measures, changes in the regulatory environment and fluctuations of interest and exchange rates. Due to such uncertainties and risks, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the document within which the statement is contained. All subsequent oral or written forward-looking statements attributable to eve or any of its members, directors, officers or employees or any persons acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statement above. eve expressly disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking or other statements contained on this Microsite, except as required by applicable law.
