This report contains certain forwardlooking statements concerning the development of the ZEISS Group. At the present time, ZEISS assumes that these forward-looking statements are realistic. However, such forward-looking statements are based both on assumptions and estimates that are subject to risks and uncertainties, which may lead to the actual results differing significantly from the expected results. ZEISS therefore assumes no liability for such a deviation. There are no plans to update the forwardlooking statements for events that occur after the end of the reporting period.
Apparent addition discrepancies may arise throughout this annual report due to mathematical rounding. This is a translation of the original German-language Annual Report of the ZEISS Group. The ZEISS Group shall not assume any liability for the correctness of this translation. If the texts differ, the German report shall take precedence.
