TELUS forward looking statement
Today's presentation and answers to questions contain statements about future events and
financial and operating performance of TELUS that are forward-looking. By their nature,
forward-looking statements require the Company to make assumptions and predictions and are
subject to inherent risks and uncertainties. There is significant risk that the forward-looking
statements will not prove to be accurate. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on
forward-looking statements as a number of factors could cause actual future performance and
events to differ materially from that expressed in the forward-looking statements. Accordingly,
our comments are subject to the disclaimer and qualified by the assumptions (including
assumptions for 2013 annual guidance, CEO three-year goals to 2013 for EPS and free cash
flow growth to 2013 excluding spectrum costs, semi-annual dividend increases to 2016, ability
to sustain and complete multi-year share purchase programs to 2016), qualifications and risk
factors referred to in the first quarter Management’s discussion and analysis and in the 2012
annual report, and in other TELUS public disclosure documents and filings with securities
commissions in Canada (on SEDAR at sedar.com) and in the United States (on EDGAR at
sec.gov). In addition, there can be no assurance that the Company will initiate a normal course
issuer bid. Except as required by law, TELUS disclaims any intention or obligation to update or
revise forward-looking statements, and reserves the right to change, at any time at its sole
discretion, its current practice of updating annual targets and guidance.
