The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements: general global financial crisis, general business and economic conditions in the People’s Republic of China, the failure of China Cablecom Holdings to consummate the acquisition of the Hubei networks, the failure to achieve anticipated cost savings and increases in average revenue per user (“ARPU”), and regulatory actions taken by the State Administration for Radio, Film and Television or any other governmental authority in the PRC. Additional factors that could cause China Cablecom Holdings’ results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in China Cablecom Holdings’ (“Registration Statement”) on Form S-1, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in April 2008. Investors are able to obtain free copies of the “Registration Statement” and other documents filed with the SEC by China Cablecom Holdings through the website maintained by the SEC at www.sec.gov .
