Cautions about Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements about: the benefits of the Acquisition, including enhancements to our value proposition and our existing product platforms, customer expansion and penetration and diversification of our business; the benefits and value of CarweB's products and services to customers and the Solera Group; and statements about CarweB's historical results that may suggest trends for its business. These statements are based on our current expectations, estimates and assumptions and are subject to many risks, uncertainties and unknown future events that could cause actual results to differ materially. Actual results may differ materially from those set forth in this press release due to the risks and uncertainties inherent in our business, including, without limitation: the failure to realize the expected benefits of the Acquisition; risks associated with and possible negative consequences of acquisitions, investments, joint ventures and similar transactions, including successfully integrating CarweB and its employees; risks associated with the uncertainty in and volatility of economic conditions in the UK and globally; effects of competition on our product and service pricing and our business; time and expenses associated with customer adoption and switching customers to new software and services; effects of changes in or violations by us or our customers of government regulations; rapid technology changes in our industry; our reliance on third-party data or products; and effects of security breaches on our business and reputation. For a discussion of these and other factors that could impact our operations or financial results and cause our results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, please refer to our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2012.
