This presentation may include forward-looking statements, projections, objectives, estimates and forecasts which have not been verified by an independent entity, and the accuracy, completeness or correctness thereof should not be relied upon. Forward looking statements, projections, objectives, estimates and forecasts are generally identifiable by the use of the words " may,"" will,"" should,"" plan,"" expect,"" anticipate,"" estimate,"" believe,"" intend,"" project," or the negative of these words or other variations on these words or comparable terminology. All forecasts and other statements included in this presentation that are not statements of historical fact, including, without limitation, those regarding the financial position, business strategy, management plans and objectives for future operations of CaixaBank (which term includes its subsidiaries and investees) and run-rate metrics, are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may cause actual results, performance or achievements of CaixaBank, or industry results, to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

Neither this presentation nor the historical performance of CaixaBank's management team constitute a guarantee of the future performance of CaixaBank and there can be no assurance that CaixaBank's management team will be successful in implementing the investment strategy of CaixaBank. In addition to the financial information prepared under IFRS, this presentation may include certain alternative performance measures ("APMs") as defined in the Guidelines on Alternative Performance Measures issued by the European Securities and Markets Authority on 5 October 2015. An APM is a financial measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows, other than a financial measure defined or specified in the applicable financial reporting framework. CaixaBank believes that there are certain APMs, which are used by the Group's management in making financial, operational and planning decisions, which provide useful financial information that should be considered in addition to the financial statements prepared in accordance with the accounting regulations that applies (IFRS EU), in assessing its performance. These APMs are consistent with the main indicators used by the community of analysts and investors in the capital markets.
The proposed transaction relates to the securities of CaixaBank and Bankia, S.A. ("Bankia"), both companies incorporated in Spain. Information distributed in connection with the proposed transaction and the related shareholder vote is subject to Spanish disclosure requirements that are different from those of the United States. Financial statements and financial information included herein are prepared in accordance with Spanish accounting standards that may not be comparable to the financial statements or financial information of United States companies.
It may be difficult for you to enforce your rights and any claim you may have arising under the U.S. federal securities laws in respect of the proposed transaction, since the companies are located in Spain and some or all of their officers and directors are residents of Spain. You may not be able to sue the companies or their officers or directors in a Spanish court for violations of the U.S. securities laws. Finally, it may be difficult to compel the companies and their affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.
You should be aware that the companies may purchase shares otherwise than under the proposed transaction, such as in open market or privately negotiated purchases, at any time during the pendency of the proposed transaction.
The ordinary shares of CaixaBank have not been and are not intended to be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States of America except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of such Act.
