This 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 years 2012 and 2013 and the future growth in the Payments, Marketplaces and GSI businesses.
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 further downturn or crisis in Europe; foreign exchange rate fluctuations; the impact and integration of recent and future acquisitions, including GSI; our increasing need to grow revenues from existing users in established markets; 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, IP and litigation risks (including risks specific to PayPal, Bill Me Later and the financial industry); and our need to timely upgrade our technology and customer service infrastructure at reasonable cost while adding new features and maintaining site stability.
You can find more information about factors that could affect our operating results in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and our subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q (available at http://investor.ebayinc.com). You should not rely on any forward-looking statements, and we assume no obligation to update them. All information in this session is as of January 18, 2012, and we do not intend, and undertake no duty, to update this presentation.
