On June 14, 2016, Coty Inc. (the Company) provided supplemental information regarding the previously announced proposed transaction with The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) in connection with a presentation at the Deutsche Bank dbAccess Global Consumer Conference. A copy of the presentation is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
This information, including Exhibit 99.1, will not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that section and it will not be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Certain statements in this communication are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements reflect the Companys current views with respect to the completion of the transaction with P&G. These forward-looking statements are generally identified by words or phrases, such as anticipate, ambition, expect, should, would, could, intend, plan, project, seek, believe, will, opportunity, potential, and similar words or phrases. Actual results may differ materially from the results predicted due to risks and uncertainties, including inaccuracies in our assumptions in evaluating the transaction, difficulties in integrating P&Gs fine fragrances, salon professional, cosmetics and retail hair color businesses, as well as select hair styling brands (P&G Beauty Brands) into the Company and other difficulties in achieving the expected benefits of the transaction. All statements in this communication, other than those relating to historical information or current conditions, are forward-looking statements. The Company intends these forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, which could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements.
Risks and uncertainties relating to the proposed transaction with P&G include, but are not limited to: uncertainties as to the timing of the transaction; the risk that regulatory or other approvals required for the transaction are not obtained or are obtained subject to conditions that are not anticipated; competitive responses to the transaction; litigation relating to the transaction; uncertainty of the expected financial performance of the combined company following completion of the proposed transaction; the ability of the Company to achieve the cost-savings and synergies contemplated by the proposed transaction within the expected time frame; the ability of the Company to promptly and effectively integrate P&G Beauty Brands and the Company; the effects of the business combination of the Company and P&G Beauty Brands, including the combined companys future financial condition, operating results, strategy and plans; and disruption from the proposed transaction making it more difficult to maintain relationships with customers, employees or suppliers.
The foregoing review of important factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included elsewhere. More information about potential risks and uncertainties that could affect the Companys business and financial results is included under Risk Factors in the Companys Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on April 22, 2016, as amended on June 1, 2016, under Risk Factors and Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, and other periodic reports the Company has filed and may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) from time to time. Any forward-looking statements made in this communication are qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements, and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by the Company will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, the Company or its business or operations. Except to the extent required by applicable law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.
