which Nortel operates. These statements are subject to important
assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict

substantial cash payment and/or significant dilution of Nortel's
existing equity positions resulting from the finalization and
approval of its proposed class action settlement, or if such proposed

awards of damages in respect of such class actions; any unsuccessful
remediation of Nortel's material weaknesses in internal control over
financial reporting resulting in an inability to report Nortel's
results of operations and financial condition accurately and in a
timely manner; the time required to implement Nortel's remedial
measures; Nortel's inability to access, in its current form, its
shelf registration filed with the United States Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC), and Nortel's below investment grade credit
rating and any further adverse effect on its credit rating due to

delisting procedures; (ii) risks and uncertainties relating to
Nortel's business including: yearly and quarterly fluctuations of
Nortel's operating results; reduced demand and pricing pressures for
its products due to global economic conditions, significant
competition, competitive pricing practice, cautious capital spending
by customers, increased industry consolidation, rapidly changing
technologies, evolving industry standards, frequent new product
introductions and short product life cycles, and other trends and
industry characteristics affecting the telecommunications industry;
the sufficiency of recently announced restructuring actions,
including the potential for higher actual costs to be incurred in
connection with these restructuring actions compared to the estimated
costs of such actions and the ability to achieve the targeted cost

deficit; any material and adverse affects on Nortel's performance if
its expectations regarding market demand for particular products
prove to be wrong or because of certain barriers in its efforts to
expand internationally; any reduction in Nortel's operating results
and any related volatility in the market price of its publicly traded
securities arising from any decline in its gross margin, or

developments associated with Nortel's supply contract and contract

negative impact to Nortel of its failure to achieve its business
transformation objectives; additional valuation allowances for all or

facility covenants, or on obtaining additional secured debt pursuant
to the provisions of indentures governing certain of Nortel's public
debt issues and the provisions of its credit facilities; any increase
of restricted cash requirements for Nortel if it is unable to secure
alternative support for obligations arising from certain normal
course business activities, or any inability of Nortel's subsidiaries
to provide it with sufficient funding; any negative effect to Nortel
of the need to make larger defined benefit plans contributions in the
future or exposure to customer credit risks or inability of customers
to fulfill payment obligations under customer financing arrangements;
any negative impact on Nortel's ability to make future acquisitions,
raise capital, issue debt and retain employees arising from stock
price volatility and further declines in the market price of Nortel's
