Disclosure: Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the materials on or linked to by this Site may contain statements and/or projections about expected future events and/or financial or technical results that are forward-looking in nature and subject to risks and uncertainties. We wish to caution you that actual performance and results will be affected by a number of factors, many of which are beyond the company’s control, and that future events and results may vary substantially from what the company foresaw or currently foresees. For those statements, we claim the protection of the safe harbour for forward-looking statements provisions contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Important discussion of various factors that may affect future results is contained in SMTC Corporation’s recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Canadian Securities Commissions. These documents contain and identify factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those contained in our projections or forward-looking statements including, among others, substantial capital requirements; development of effective internal processes and systems; the ability to attract and retain large customers; the ability to attract and retain high quality employees; changes in the overall economy; technology; the number and size of competitors in its markets; and the mix of products and services offered in the company's target markets.
