Risks in Acquisitions

Statoil pursued attractive growth opportunities, sometimes by acquiring businesses or properties that complemented or expanded its existing portfolio. Statoil's ability to implement this strategy successfully depended upon a variety of factors, including its ability to:

• Identify acceptable opportunities;
• Negotiate favorable terms;
• Develop the performance of new market opportunities or acquired properties or businesses promptly and profitably;
• Integrate acquired properties or businesses into its operations;
• Arrange financing, if necessary...

Statoil was subject to statutory liability in respect of losses or damages suffered as a result of spills or discharges of petroleum from manufacturing facilities...
