This Twitter session contains forward-looking statements relating to our future performance that are based on our current expectations, forecasts and assumptions and involve risks and uncertainties. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding expected financial results for the first quarter and full year 2014; the company’s financial outlook for 2015; the future growth in the Payments, Marketplaces and eBay Enterprise businesses; the company’s plans regarding its share repurchase programs; and the company’s plans for its Payments business. Our actual results may differ materially from those included in this presentation for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to; changes in political, business, and economic conditions, including any continuing U.S. government shutdown or default; foreign exchange rate fluctuations; our need to successfully react to the increasing importance of mobile payments and mobile commerce and the social aspect of commerce; an increasingly competitive environment for our businesses; the complexity of managing an increasingly large enterprise, with a broad range of businesses; our need to manage regulatory, tax and litigation risks (including risks specific to PayPal and Bill Me Later); our need to timely upgrade and develop our systems, infrastructure, and customer service capabilities at reasonable cost while maintaining site stability and performance and adding new products and features; our ability to profitably integrate, manage and grow businesses that have been acquired or may be acquired in the future; and the effect the announcement of the shareholder proposal and nominations has on the company’s relationships with its shareholders, and the associated disruption of management’s and employees’ attention from the company’s ongoing business operations..
