This is the website version of the 2021 Annual Report of Accell Group N.V. in the European single electronic reporting format (ESEF); this website version has been prepared for ease of use. The 2021 Annual Report was made publicly available pursuant to section 5:25c of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht) and was filed with the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets in the European single electronic reporting format (the ‘ESEF reporting package’). The ESEF reporting package is available on the company's annual report website. In case of any discrepancies between this website version and the ESEF reporting package, the latter prevails.
This document contains certain forward-looking statements, such as statements regarding trends or Accell Group’s outlook and future plans, strategies, financial results or financial condition. Generally, words such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “continue”, “believes”, “aims”, “intends”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “targets”, “plans”, “seeks”, “estimates” and similar words identify forward-looking statements. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. These risks and uncertainties are difficult to predict and many are outside the control of Accell Group. A number of factors could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from historical experience or those expressed or implied in said forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results or outcomes to differ from current expectations include but are not limited to (macro)economic, market, societal and business trends and conditions, changes and developments in legislation, technology, taxes, jurisprudence and regulations, share price fluctuations, supply chain disruptions, component shortages, legal claims, investigations by regulatory bodies, the effects of competition and competitive developments, the ability to attract and retain personnel, risks and uncertainties surrounding or stemming from the announced public offer for Accell Group and general economic and/or political changes and other developments in countries or markets in which Accell Group operates. These and other factors, risks and uncertainties that may affect any forward-looking statement and could cause future results or outcomes to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements are described in Accell Group’s annual report. The forward-looking statements contained in this document speak only as at the date of this document. Accell Group does not accept any liability for any forward-looking statement contained in this document and expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements contained in this document, whether as a result of any new information, future events, a change in expectations or for any other reason, unless Accell Group is under a legal obligation to do so.
