Forward-looking statements

The Novozymes Report 2008 contains forward-looking statements, including Novozymes’ financial outlook for 2009, which, by their very nature, are associated with risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from expectations.

The uncertainties may include unexpected developments in the international currency exchange and securities markets, market-driven price decreases for Novozymes’ products, and the introduction of competing products within Novozymes’ core areas. See “Risk management.”
