This annual report contains forward-looking statements relating to future events and future
performance. Any statements regarding expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, estimates, objectives, intentions, assumptions, or otherwise relating to future events or performance may be forward-looking.
In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “intend,” “project,” “plan,” “predict,” “assume,” “estimate,”
“objective,” “possible,” “potential,” or other similar expressions. Some examples of forward-looking
statements include statements regarding TVA’s projections of future power and energy requirements;
future costs related to environmental compliance; impacts of potential legislation on TVA and the likelihood of enactment of such legislation; strategic objectives; anticipated availability of nuclear waste storage facilities; projections of nuclear decommissioning costs; and impacts of pending litigation and various administrative orders which have been or may be issued. Although TVA believes that the assumptions underlying the
forward-looking statements are reasonable, TVA does not guarantee the accuracy of these statements. Numerous factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, among other things, new laws, regulations, and administrative orders, especially those related to the restructuring of the electric power industry and various environmental matters; increased competition among electric utilities; legal and administrative proceedings affecting TVA; the financial and economic environment; performance of TVA’s generation and transmission assets; fuel prices; demand for electricity; changes in technology; changes in the price of power; loss of any significant customers or
suppliers; creditworthiness of counterparties; weather conditions and other natural phenomena; changes in accounting standards; and unforeseeable events. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors or to assess the extent to which any factor or combination
of factors may impact TVA’s business or cause results to differ materially from those contained in any
forward-looking statement. TVA undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement
to reflect developments that occur after the statement is made.
