  • Note to Investors


    This presentation contains certain forward-looking statements, including projected future dividend growth rates and operating

    earnings growth rates which are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ

    materially from management's projections, forecasts, estimates and expectations may include factors that are beyond the

    company's ability to control or estimate precisely, fluctuations in energy-related commodity prices, estimates of future market

    conditions, access to and costs of capital, fluctuations in the value of our pension assets and assets held in our

    decommissioning trusts, the receipt of regulatory approvals for, and timing of, planned projects, acquisitions and divestitures,

    and the ability to complete planned construction or expansion projects within the terms and timeframes initially anticipated.

    Other factors include, but are not limited to, weather conditions, including the effects of hurricanes, earthquakes, high winds and

    major storms on operations, the risks associated with the operation of nuclear facilities, unplanned outages of Dominions

    generation facilities, state and federal legislative and regulatory developments and changes to environmental and other laws and

    regulations, including those related to climate change, greenhouse gases and other emissions to which we are subject, political

    and economic conditions, industrial, commercial and residential growth or decline in Dominions service territory, risks of

    operating businesses in regulated industries that are subject to changing regulatory structures, changes to regulated gas and

    electric rates collected by Dominion, changes to rating agency requirements and ratings, changing financial accounting

    standards, fluctuations in interest rates, changes in federal and state tax laws, employee workforce factors, including collective

    bargaining, counter-party credit and performance risk, risks related to energy trading and marketing, adverse outcomes in

    litigation matters, the risk of hostile cyber intrusions and other uncertainties. Other risk factors are detailed from time to time in

    Dominions most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q or annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange


    Projections or forecasts shown in this document are based on the assumptions listed in this document and are subject to change

    at any time. Dominion undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking information statement to reflect developments

    after the statement is made. In addition, certain information presented in this document incorporates planned capital

    expenditures reviewed and endorsed by Dominions Board of Directors in late 2011. Dominion undertakes no obligation to

    update such planned expenditures to reflect plan or project-specific developments, including regulatory developments, or other

    updates until the following annual update for the plans. Actual capital expenditures may be subject to regulatory and/or Board of

    Directors approval and may vary from these estimates.
