This news release contains "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation, and "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively referred to as "forward-looking information"). The use of any of the words "expect", "potential", "target", "anticipate", "continue", "estimate", "objective", "may", "will", "project", "should", "believe", "plans", "intends" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information or statements. More particularly and without limitation, this news release contains forward-looking statements and information concerning: the anticipated benefits of the completion of the Arrangement to Tahoe and its shareholders and the former Rio Alto shareholders, future silver and gold production and future cash flow generation and financial returns. Tahoe believes these measures will provide investors and analysts with useful information about Tahoe's underlying cash costs of operations, the impact of byproduct credits on the Tahoe's cost structure and its ability to generate cash flow, as well as a meaningful comparison to other mining companies. Accordingly, these measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be substituted for GAAP measures.
In respect of the forward-looking statements, Tahoe has provided them in reliance on certain assumptions that they believe are reasonable at this time. Forward-looking information relating to the future silver and gold production, future cash costs of production, silver and gold resources and reserves, the development of the Shahuindo gold mine and the expansion of the Escobal silver mine, is based on management's reasonable assumptions, estimates, expectations, analyses and opinions, which are based on management's experience and perception of trends, current conditions and expected developments, and other factors that management believes are relevant and reasonable in the circumstances, but which may prove to be incorrect. Assumptions have been made regarding, among other things, Tahoe's ability to continue paying municipal royalties in light of new royalty legislation; the price of silver, gold, and other metals; costs of development and production; Tahoe's ability to operate in a safe and effective manner; and its ability to obtain financing on reasonable terms. Total cash cost and AISC projections include a number of forward-looking assumptions including implementation of a new royalty law, lower current prices of byproduct metals, budgeted cost of consumables including diesel fuel and cement and effectiveness and timing of cost saving initiatives. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements and information contained in this news release concerning these times.
Since forward-looking information addresses future events and conditions, by its very nature it involves inherent risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond Tahoe's control. These include, but are not limited to, business integration risks; operational risks in development, exploration and production for precious metals including, but not limited to, results of exploration activities and development of mineral properties, the interpretation of drilling results and other geological data, the uncertainties of resource and reserve estimations, receipt and security of mineral property titles, receipt of licenses to conduct mining activities, country risks, civil unrest; the timing and possible outcome of pending litigation; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses; uncertainties inherent to feasibility and other economic studies; health, safety and environmental risks; precious metal prices and other commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations; marketing and transportation; loss of markets; environmental risks; competition; incorrect assessment of the value of acquisitions; ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources; changes in legislation, including but not limited to, mining regulations, tax laws, royalties and environmental regulations; and risks inherent to operating in developing countries.
Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on other risks and factors that could affect the operations or financial results of the new Tahoe are included in reports on file with applicable securities regulatory authorities, including but not limited to, Tahoe's Annual Information Form dated March 11, 2015 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 which may be accessed on Tahoe's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and Rio Alto's Annual Information Form dated March 13, 2015 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 which may be accessed on Rio Alto's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
Management has included the above summary of assumptions and risks related to forward-looking information provided in this news release in order to provide shareholders with a more complete perspective on the completion of the Arrangement and such information may not be appropriate for other purposes. Actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements and, accordingly, no assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so, what benefits may be derived there from. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on this information.
The forward-looking statements and information contained in this news release are made as of the date hereof and Tahoe does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events, or results or otherwise, other than as required by applicable securities laws.
