Massey Energy cautions investors not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, as they speak only of Massey Energy’s views as of the date the statement was posted at the Site.

New factors may emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors, nor can it assess the impact of each such factor on the business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.
