Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K report contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. All statements, other than statements of historical fact included in this Form 8-K, including those under “Corporate Expenditure Guidance”, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements use words such as “anticipate,” “project,” “expect,” “plan,” “goal,” “forecast,” “intend,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “believe,” “may,” and similar expressions and statements regarding our plans and objectives for future operations. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, the statements we make regarding future capital expenditures.
These statements are based on our beliefs and assumptions using currently available information and expectations as of the date hereof, are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties, including those contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although we believe that such expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot give assurance that our expectations will prove to be correct. Therefore, actual outcomes and results could materially differ from what is expressed, implied or forecast in these statements. Any differences could be caused by a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following: (i) the extraordinary market environment and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the continuation of a material decline in demand for refined petroleum products in markets HEP serves; (ii) risks and uncertainties with respect to the actual quantities of petroleum products and crude oil shipped on HEP’s pipelines and/or terminalled, stored or throughput in HEP’s terminals and refinery processing units; (iii) the economic viability of HollyFrontier Corporation, HEP’s other customers and joint ventures’ other customers, including any refusal or inability of HEP or its joint ventures’ customers or counterparties to perform their obligations under their contracts; (iv) the demand for refined petroleum products in the markets HEP serves; (v) HEP’s ability to purchase and integrate future acquired operations; (vi) HEP’s ability to complete previously announced or contemplated acquisitions; (vii) the availability and cost of additional debt and equity financing; (viii) the possibility of temporary or permanent reductions in production or shutdowns at refineries utilizing HEP’s pipelines, terminal facilities and refinery processing units, due to reasons such as infection in the workforce, in response to reductions in demand or lower gross margins due to economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and any potential asset impairments resulting from such actions; (ix) the effects of current and future government regulations and policies, including the effects of current and future restrictions on various commercial and economic activities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; (x) delay by government authorities in issuing permits necessary for HEP’s business or capital projects; (xi) HEP and its joint venture partners’ ability to complete and maintain operational efficiency in carrying out routine operations and capital construction projects; (xii) the possibility of terrorist or cyber-attacks and the consequences of any such attacks; (xiii) general economic conditions, including uncertainty regarding the timing, pace and extent of an economic recovery in the United States; (xiv) the impact of recent or proposed changes in the tax laws and regulations that
affect master limited partnerships; and (xv) other financial, operational and legal risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in our Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including the detailed risk factors and other cautionary statements set forth under the heading “Risk Factors” included in Item 1A in the HEP Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and the HEP Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. All forward-looking statements included in this Form 8-K and all subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.
