The Company cautions that a number of important factors could cause Activision Blizzard's actual future results and other future circumstances to differ materially from those expressed in any such forward looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to, sales levels of Activision Blizzard’s titles, the impact of the current macroeconomic environment, increasing concentration of titles, shifts in consumer spending trends, Activision Blizzard’s ability to predict consumer preferences, including interest in specific genres such as first-person action and massively multiplayer online games and preferences among hardware platforms, maintenance of relationships with key personnel, customers, licensees, licensors, vendors, and third-party developers, including the ability to attract, retain and develop key personnel and developers that can create high quality "hit" titles, the seasonal and cyclical nature of the interactive game market, changing business models, including digital delivery of content, competition, including from used games and other forms of entertainment, possible declines in software pricing, product returns and price protection, product delays, adoption rate and availability of new hardware (including peripherals) and related software, particularly during the upcoming console transition, rapid changes in technology and industry standards, litigation risks and associated costs, protection of proprietary rights, counterparty risks relating to customers, licensees, licensors and manufacturers, domestic and international economic, financial and political conditions and policies, foreign exchange rates and tax rates, and potential challenges associated with geographic expansion, capital market risks, the possibility that expected benefits related to the pending transactions with Vivendi and ASAC II LP may not materialize as expected, and the pending transactions not being timely completed, if completed at all. These important factors and other factors that potentially could affect the Company’s financial results are described in the Company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K as amended, quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period, and other filings with the SEC.
