Safe-harbor statement
This presentation includes forward-looking information and statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about global economic conditions, the economic conditions of the regions and industries that are major markets for ABB Ltd and ABB Ltd’s lines of business. These expectations, estimates and projections are generally identifiable by statements containing words such as “expects,” “believes,” “estimates” or similar expressions. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expectations include, among others, economic and market conditions in the geographic areas and industries that are major markets for ABB’s businesses, market acceptance of new products and services, changes in governmental regulations, interest rates, and fluctuation in currency exchange rates. Although ABB Ltd believes that its expectations reflected in any such forward looking statement are based upon reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that those expectations will be achieved.

Reliability standards development and enforcement by a federal electric reliability organization (ERO) will take up to two years to implement. asset management tools. Real-time information systems. and substation automation has high potential for growth. Long Term – Significantly increased transmission investment Faster line siting procedures for federal and cross-state lands.11 22-Jun-06 Increase in service business to maintain and upgrade aging substations due to mandatory reliability standards. . Short Term – Minimal transmission investment Customers expect state resistance to federal oversight which may delay implementation of the electricity title provisions. Advanced transmission technologies potential due to tax incentives. Rules for tax benefits and accelerated depreciation on new transmission assets will take up to 12 months to be established.
