(TIL).HAMILTON, BERMUDA, Nov. 09, 2017 — Teekay Corporation (Teekay or the Company) (NYSE:TK) today reported the Company's results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  These results include the Company’s three publicly-listed subsidiaries Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (Teekay LNG) (NYSE:TGP), Teekay Tankers Ltd. (Teekay Tankers) (NYSE:TNK), and Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. (Teekay Offshore) (NYSE:TOO) (collectively, the Daughter Entities), and all remaining subsidiaries of the Company.  The Company, together with its subsidiaries other than the Daughter Entities, is referred to in this release as Teekay Parent.  Please refer to the third quarter 2017 earnings releases of Teekay LNG, Teekay Tankers and Teekay Offshore, which are available on the Company’s website at www.teekay.com, for additional information on their respective results.Teekay LNG and Teekay Tankers are consolidated in the Company's financial statements and, up to the September 25, 2017 closing of the strategic partnership with Brookfield Business Partners L.P., together with its institutional partners (collectively Brookfield), Teekay Offshore was consolidated in the Company's financial statements.  In connection with Brookfield's acquisition of a 49 percent interest in Teekay Offshore's general partner, Teekay Offshore GP LLC (or TOO GP), Teekay and Brookfield entered into an amended limited liability company agreement whereby Brookfield obtained certain participatory rights in the management of TOO GP, which resulted in Teekay deconsolidating Teekay Offshore for accounting purposes on September 25, 2017. Subsequent to the closing of the Brookfield transaction, Teekay retains significant influence over Teekay Offshore and accounts for its investment in Teekay Offshore using the equity method.  Please see “Summary of Recent Events –Teekay Offshore” for additional information about the Brookfield transaction.
CEO Commentary“Since reporting earnings in August 2017, we have been focused on completing strategic transactions, vessel deliveries and financing initiatives across the Teekay Group, which we believe will strengthen each of our businesses,” commented Kenneth Hvid, Teekay’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Teekay and Teekay Offshore have completed their strategic partnership with Brookfield, Teekay Tankers has secured support from two leading independent proxy advisory firms for its proposed charter amendment to permit its merger with TIL, and Teekay LNG continues to execute on the delivery and financing of its newbuilding projects.”  Mr. Hvid continued, “Teekay LNG and Teekay Offshore’s projects are now starting to deliver which are expected to provide significant future cash flow growth.”“With respect to Teekay Parent’s directly-owned assets, we believe Centrica Energy’s previously announced drilling campaign on the Chestnut field in the North Sea, which is serviced by our Hummingbird Spirit FPSO unit, is expected to increase production, thereby increasing Teekay Parent’s cash flows.  Our new three-year contract extension for the Hummingbird Spirit FPSO contract took effect in October 2017, and now includes a component providing potential upside based on oil production and oil prices, as is also the case with Teekay Parent's other two FPSO units, the Banff and Foinaven FPSO units.”Mr. Hvid added, “We are starting to see green shoots of an energy recovery in our LNG, offshore and crude oil tanker businesses. With market-leading positions and strong operational platforms, we believe each of our businesses are well-positioned to benefit from and take advantage of future opportunities as our markets continue to recover.”Summary of Results
Teekay Corporation ConsolidatedThe Company's consolidated results during the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to the same period of the prior year, were impacted primarily by $243.7 million of impairment charges.  In addition, as a result of the Brookfield transaction, the Company recorded a $103.2 million loss on deconsolidation of Teekay Offshore and recognized previously deferred gains of $349.6 million within net loss attributable to non-controlling interests related to previous sales of vessels from Teekay Parent to Teekay Offshore.In addition, the Company's consolidated results were impacted by lower cash flows from Teekay Parent related to the scheduled maintenance for the Foinaven FPSO unit in the third quarter of 2017 and an insurance recovery recognized for the Banff FPSO unit in the third quarter of 2016; lower income and cash flows from Teekay LNG's six LPG carriers on charter to I.M. Skaugen (Skaugen) as a result of uncollected hire; a reduction in income and cash flows in Teekay Tankers due to lower average spot tanker rates; and lower income and cash flows in Teekay Offshore primarily due to the redelivery of the Petrojarl Varg (Varg) FPSO unit in July 2016, the redelivery of an FSO unit in October 2016 and the non-payment of charter hire for the Arendal Spirit UMS since early-November 2016 and subsequent charter termination in April 2017.These decreases were partially offset primarily by higher results for the Banff FPSO due to a production tariff linked to oil price commencing August 1, 2017, and higher income and cash flows from Teekay LNG as a result of the deliveries of two MEGI LNG carrier newbuildings in 2016 and 2017, the Oak Spirit and Torben Spirit, which commenced their respective charter contracts.Teekay ParentTeekay Parent GPCO Cash Flow, which includes distributions and dividends paid to Teekay Parent from Teekay’s Daughter Entities in the following quarter, less Teekay Parent’s corporate general and administrative expenses, was $7.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to $6.4 million for the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to certain cost recoveries from Teekay Offshore in the third quarter of 2017, partially offset by a reduction in the cash distribution from Teekay Offshore as a result of the recent strategic partnership with Brookfield (see “Summary of Recent Events–Teekay Offshore” below for additional information on this transaction).Teekay Parent OPCO Cash Flow, which includes cash flow attributable to assets directly-owned by, or chartered-in to, Teekay Parent, net of interest expense and dry-dock expenditures, decreased to negative $19.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, from negative $13.1 million for the same period of the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to lower revenues and higher repairs and maintenance costs relating to the scheduled maintenance for the Foinaven FPSO unit in the third quarter of 2017, the sale of the Shoshone Spirit VLCC in the fourth quarter of 2016, and lower average spot tanker rates, partially offset by higher revenues from the Banff FPSO unit due to a contractual production tariff linked to oil prices which commenced on August 1, 2017 and the commencement of a one-year charter contract for the Polar Spirit LNG in the second quarter of 2017 and a seven-month contract for the Arctic Spirit LNG in the third quarter of 2017.Total Teekay Parent Free Cash Flow, which is the total of Teekay Parent GPCO Cash Flow and Teekay Parent OPCO Cash Flow, was negative $11.9 million during the third quarter of 2017, compared to negative $6.8 million for the same period of the prior year.  Please refer to Appendix D of this release for additional information about Teekay Parent Free Cash Flow.Summary Results of Daughter EntitiesTeekay LNGTeekay LNG's results decreased during the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily due to lower revenues from Teekay LNG's six LPG carriers on charter to Skaugen as a result of uncollected hire and lower revenues from Teekay LNG’s 50 percent-owned joint venture with Exmar due to lower spot rates.  These decreases were partially offset by, among other things, the deliveries of two MEGI LNG carrier newbuildings and the commencement of their respective charter contracts in 2016 and 2017 and the deliveries of three mid-size LPG carriers in Teekay LNG's 50 percent-owned joint venture with Exmar in 2016 and 2017.  Please refer to Teekay LNG's third quarter of 2017 earnings release for additional information on the financial results for this entity.Teekay TankersTeekay Tankers' results decreased during the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily due to lower average spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2017 compared to the same period of the prior year. Seasonal weakness, combined with global inventory drawdowns as crude oil pricing moved into backwardation, contributed to weak spot tanker rates in the third quarter of 2017. Since that time, crude tanker rates have improved into the fourth quarter of 2017 supported by refineries returning from seasonal maintenance and an increase in long-haul movements from the Atlantic to the Pacific, which is increasing tanker ton-mile demand. Please refer to Teekay Tankers’ third quarter 2017 earnings release for additional information on the financial results for this entity.Teekay OffshoreTeekay Offshore’s results decreased during the quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the redelivery to Teekay Offshore of the Varg FPSO unit (which left its field at the end of July 2016), the redelivery of an FSO unit in October 2016, the non-payment of charter hire for the Arendal Spirit UMS since early-November 2016 and subsequent charter termination, and higher operating expenses relating to Teekay Offshore's FPSO fleet. These decreases were partially offset by higher project revenues during the third quarter of 2017 and lower operating expenses from Teekay Offshore's shuttle tanker fleet. Please refer to Teekay Offshore’s third quarter of 2017 earnings release for additional information on the financial results for this entity.Summary of Recent Events
Teekay ParentIn October 2017, Teekay Parent terminated the charter-in contracts prior to their expiration dates for its two remaining in-chartered conventional tankers, the Constitution Spirit and Sentinel Spirit, resulting in a net termination fee payment of approximately $1.6 million, which terminations are expected to improve Teekay Parent's cash flows in the future.On November 7, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington ruled in the Company's favor on all claims and dismissed with prejudice the securities law class action complaint that had been filed against Teekay and certain of the Company's officers on March 1, 2016 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut and which had been transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington on November 18, 2016.Teekay LNGIn October and November 2017, Teekay LNG took delivery of two MEGI LNG carrier newbuildings, the Macoma and Murex, chartered to Royal Dutch Shell (Shell), which immediately commenced their six and seven-year charter contracts, plus extension options, respectively.In October 2017, Teekay LNG’s 30-percent owned joint venture with China LNG Shipping (Holdings) Limited and CETS (an affiliate of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC)) took delivery of an LNG carrier newbuilding, the Pan Asia, which immediately commenced its 20-year charter contract with Shell.Teekay OffshoreIn September 2017, Teekay Offshore completed the previously announced strategic partnership with Brookfield, and related transactions (collectively the Brookfield Transaction), which included the following, among others:Brookfield and Teekay Parent invested $610 million and $30 million, respectively, in Teekay Offshore at a price of $2.50 per common unit and received 65.5 million Teekay Offshore warrants (Warrants) on a pro rata basis. Following the transaction, Brookfield owns approximately 60 percent and Teekay Parent owns approximately 14 percent of the common units of Teekay Offshore;Brookfield acquired from Teekay Parent both a 49 percent interest in TOO GP in exchange for $4 million and an option to acquire an additional two percent of TOO GP, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, in exchange for 1.0 million of the Warrants issued to Brookfield;Teekay Offshore repurchased and canceled all $304 million of the outstanding Series C-1 and Series D preferred units from the existing unitholders for an aggregate of approximately $250 million in cash, which will save approximately $28 million annually in cash distributions. Concurrently, Teekay Offshore's Series D tranche B warrants to purchase common units issued on June 29, 2016, were amended to reduce the exercise price from $6.05 to $4.55;Teekay Offshore extended the mandatory prepayment date for the Arendal Spirit UMS debt facility to September 30, 2018 in exchange for a principal prepayment of $30 million;Brookfield acquired from Teekay Parent an existing $200 million loan, previously extended to Teekay Offshore, in exchange for $140 million in cash and 11.4 million of the Warrants initially issued to Brookfield. Brookfield extended the maturity date of the loan from 2019 to 2022;Teekay Offshore transferred its shuttle tanker business into a new, wholly-owned, non-recourse subsidiary, Teekay Shuttle Tankers L.L.C. (ShuttleCo).  As part of the formation of ShuttleCo, a majority of Teekay Offshore's shuttle tanker fleet was refinanced with a new $600 million, five-year debt facility, and two 50 percent-owned vessels were refinanced with a new $71 million, four-year debt facility. In addition, an existing $250 million debt facility secured by the three East Coast of Canada newbuildings, and an existing $141 million private placement bond secured by two vessels, were transferred from Teekay Offshore to ShuttleCo;All of Teekay Offshore's existing NOK bonds due to mature in late-2018 are expected to be repurchased with proceeds from a new five-year $250 million U.S. Dollar denominated bond offering by ShuttleCo in the Norwegian bond market, which priced at a fixed coupon of 7.125 percent per annum; andCertain financial institutions providing interest rate swaps to Teekay Offshore (i) lowered the fixed interest rate on the swaps, (ii) extended the termination option of the swaps by two years to 2021, and (iii) eliminated the financial guarantee and security package currently provided by Teekay Parent in return for a prepayment amount and fees.In October 2017, the Randgrid FSO unit, which was converted from one of Teekay Offshore’s shuttle tankers at Sembcorp’s Sembawang shipyard in Singapore, commenced its charter contract with Statoil on the Gina Krog oil and gas field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.In November 2017, Teekay Offshore entered into a heads of terms with Premier Oil to extend the employment of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit on the Huntington field for an additional twelve months out to April 2019.  The new contract, which will take effect in April 2018, will include a fixed rate component and an upside component based on the oil production and oil prices.Teekay Offshore received notice from the charterer, Petrobras, that it plans to redeliver the Rio das Ostras FPSO unit to Teekay Offshore upon completion of the unit's firm charter contract in January 2018. As a result, Teekay Offshore is seeking redeployment opportunities.In October and November 2017, Teekay Offshore took delivery of the first two East Coast Canada shuttle tanker newbuildings, the Beothuk Spirit and Norse Spirit, which are scheduled to commence long-term charters in December 2017 and January 2018 with a group of companies that includes Canada Hibernia Holding Corporation, Chevron Canada, Exxon Mobil, Husky Energy, Mosbacher Operating Ltd., Murphy Oil, Nalcor Energy, Statoil and Suncor Energy.  These newbuildings will replace two existing shuttle tankers that are currently operating in East Coast Canada, with the first replaced vessel transferring to the North Sea to provide required capacity in Teekay Offshore's Contract of Affreighment (CoA) fleet and the second replaced vessel redelivering to its owner.In October 2017, Teekay Offshore took delivery of the third of four state-of-the-art SX-157 Ulstein Design ultra-long distance towing and offshore installation newbuildings, the ALP Sweeper, constructed by Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair in Japan. Due to the delayed delivery of the vessel, Teekay Offshore received a reimbursement from the shipyard of $8.1 million.Teekay TankersTeekay Tankers has entered into a voting and support agreement with its second largest shareholder, Huber Capital Management LLC (Huber Capital), whereby Huber Capital will vote its shares in favor of increasing the authorized number of Teekay Tankers’ Class A common shares at an upcoming November 17, 2017 special meeting of shareholders, to permit the issuance of Class A common shares as consideration to complete its proposed merger with TIL.In November 2017, two leading independent proxy advisory firms, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS) and Glass, Lewis & Co., LLC (Glass Lewis), both recommended that Teekay Tankers' shareholder vote “FOR” the proposed charter amendment, which will allow Teekay Tankers to effect its proposed merger with TIL, which owns 18 mid-size conventional tankers.  ISS and Glass Lewis are leading independent international proxy advisory firms, and their voting analyses and recommendations are relied upon by thousands of major institutional investment firms, mutual funds and fiduciaries throughout the world.Since August 2017, Teekay Tankers has entered into agreements to sell two 1999-built Aframax tankers for aggregate proceeds of approximately $12.7 million.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThis release includes various financial measures that are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. These non-GAAP financial measures, which include Cash Flow from Vessel Operations, Adjusted Net Loss Attributable to Shareholders of Teekay, Teekay Parent GPCO Cash Flow, Teekay Parent OPCO Cash Flow, Teekay Parent Free Cash Flow, Net Interest Expense and Adjusted Equity Income, are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures do not have standardized meanings, and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.  The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management.Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresCash Flow from Vessel Operations (CFVO) represents income from vessel operations before depreciation and amortization expense, amortization of in-process revenue contracts, asset impairments, gains or losses on the sale of vessels and equipment, write-off of deferred revenues and operating expenses and adjustments for direct financing leases to a cash basis, but includes realized gains or losses on the settlement of foreign currency forward contracts and a derivative charter contract.  CFVO – Consolidated represents CFVO from vessels that are consolidated on the Company’s financial statements. CFVO – Equity Investments represents the Company’s proportionate share of CFVO from its equity-accounted vessels and other investments. The Company does not control its equity-accounted vessels and investments and as a result, the Company does not have the unilateral ability to determine whether the cash generated by its equity-accounted vessels and other investments is retained within the entities in which the Company holds the equity accounted investment or distributed to the Company and other owners. In addition, the Company does not control the timing of such distributions to the Company and other owners. Consequently, readers are cautioned when using total CFVO as a liquidity measure as the amount contributed from CFVO – Equity Investments may not be available to the Company in the periods such CFVO is generated by its equity-accounted vessels and other investments.  CFVO is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors and management to measure the operational financial performance of companies.  Please refer to Appendices C and E of this release for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to income from vessel operations and income from vessel operations of equity accounted vessels, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP measures reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.Adjusted Net Loss excludes items of income or loss from GAAP net (loss) income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Company’s financial results. The Company believes that certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s financial performance, as does management. Please refer to Appendix A of this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net (loss) income, and refer to footnote (4) of the income statement for a reconciliation of adjusted equity income to equity income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.Teekay Parent Financial MeasuresTeekay Parent Free Cash Flow represents the sum of (a) distributions or dividends (including payments in kind) relating to a given quarter (but received by Teekay Parent in the following quarter) as a result of ownership interests in its publicly-traded subsidiaries (Teekay LNG, Teekay Offshore, and Teekay Tankers) net of Teekay Parent’s corporate general and administrative expenditures for the given quarter (collectively, Teekay Parent GPCO Cash Flow) plus (b) CFVO attributed to Teekay Parent’s directly-owned and chartered-in assets, less Teekay Parent’s net interest expense and dry-dock expenditures for the given quarter (collectively, Teekay Parent OPCO Cash Flow).  Net Interest Expense includes interest expense, interest income and realized gains and losses on interest rate swaps. Please refer to Appendices B, C, D and E of this release for further details and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.(1) Restructuring charges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 primarily relate to severance costs from the termination of the charter contract for Teekay Offshore's Arendal Spirit UMS. Restructuring charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 also relate to the reorganization and realignment of resources of the Company's strategic development function. Restructuring charges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 primarily relate to the closure of offices and seafarers' severance amounts, part of which were recovered from the customer and which recovery was included in revenues in the consolidated statements of income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. Restructuring charges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 also include costs related to the reorganization of the Company's FPSO business.
(2) Asset impairments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 primarily relate to the impairments of two FPSO units in Teekay Parent. Factors contributing to the impairments included changes to the estimated cash flows and carrying values of the asset group for impairment assessment purposes under GAAP as a result of the deconsolidation of Teekay Offshore on September 25, 2017, and a re-evaluation of the estimated future net cash flows of the units.  Asset impairments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 also include the impairments of three Suezmax tankers in Teekay LNG.  Please refer to Teekay LNG’s third quarter 2017 earnings release for additional information on the asset impairments.  Asset impairments for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 relate to the write-downs of two units for maintenance and safety (UMS) newbuildings as a result of the cancellation of the related construction contracts by Teekay Offshore's subsidiaries within Logitel Offshore Pte. Ltd.
(3) Realized and unrealized (losses) gains related to derivative instruments that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes are included as a separate line item in the consolidated statements of (loss) income. The realized (losses) gains relate to the amounts the Company actually paid to settle such derivative instruments and the unrealized gains (losses) relate to the change in fair value of such derivative instruments, as detailed in the table below:
(4) The Company’s proportionate share of items within equity income (loss) as identified in Appendix A of this release is detailed in the table below. By excluding these items from equity income (loss) as reflected in the consolidated statements of (loss) income, the Company believes the resulting adjusted equity income is a normalized amount that can be used to evaluate the financial performance of the Company’s equity accounted investments. Adjusted equity income is a non-GAAP financial measure.(i) Other for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 include realized losses on cross-currency swap and interest rate swap amendments in Teekay Offshore and foreign currency exchange gains and losses in the Company's equity accounted investments. Refer to footnote (2) of Appendix A included in this release for further details. Other for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and nine months ended September 30, 2017 include the write-down of the Company's and Teekay Tankers' equity investments in TIL to their estimated fair value, based on the best available indication of fair value at June 30, 2017, which was the TIL share price as on that date.  This resulted in a consolidated non-cash impairment charge of $48.6 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2017, related to their equity investments in TIL.(5) In connection with Brookfield's acquisition of the 49 percent interest in TOO GP, Teekay and Brookfield entered into an amended limited liability company agreement whereby Brookfield obtained certain participatory rights in the management of TOO GP, which resulted in Teekay deconsolidating Teekay Offshore for accounting purposes on September 25, 2017. Subsequent to the closing of the Brookfield transaction, Teekay retains significant influence over Teekay Offshore and accounts for its investment in Teekay Offshore using the equity method.
The following table shows the impact from the deconsolidation of Teekay Offshore on September 25, 2017. On such date, the Company recognized both the net cash proceeds it received as part of the Brookfield transaction and the fair value of its retained interests in Teekay Offshore, including common units, warrants, intercorporate loans and vessel charters with Teekay Offshore, and derecognized the carrying value of both Teekay Offshore’s net assets and the non-controlling interest in Teekay Offshore, with the difference between the amounts recognized and derecognized being the loss on deconsolidation.(6) Subsequent to the formation of the Daughter Entities, Teekay sold certain vessels to the Daughter Entities.  Even though the Daughter Entities were not wholly-owned subsidiaries of Teekay, all of the gain or loss on sales of these vessels was fully eliminated upon consolidation. Consequently, the portion of the gain or loss attributable to Teekay’s reduced interest in the vessels was deferred. The total unrecognized net deferred gain relating to the vessels previously sold from Teekay to Teekay Offshore was $349.6 million. Upon deconsolidation of Teekay Offshore, such amount was recognized in net loss (income) attributable to non-controlling interests.

The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: failure to satisfy the closing conditions of Teekay Tankers’ merger with TIL, including, without limitation, approval of TIL’s shareholders of the merger and of Teekay Tankers’ shareholders of an amendment to its charter required to permit Teekay Tankers to issue the share merger consideration; changes in exploration, production and storage of offshore oil and gas, either generally or in particular regions that would affect expected future growth; changes in the demand  for oil, refined products, LNG or LPG; changes in trading patterns significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; greater or less than anticipated levels of vessel newbuilding orders and deliveries and greater or less than anticipated rates of vessel scrapping; changes in global oil prices; issues with vessel operations; variations in expected levels of field maintenance; increased operating expenses; potential project delays or cancellations; vessel conversion and upgrade delays, newbuilding or conversion specification changes, cost overruns, or shipyard disputes; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations; the potential for early termination of long-term contracts of existing vessels; delays in the commencement of charter or other contracts; the ability to fund remaining capital commitments and debt maturities; the inability to negotiate acceptable terms and final documentation for the Voyageur Spirit FPSO contract extension; the ability of the Partnership to secure redeployment opportunities for the Rio das Ostras FPSO; and other factors discussed in Teekay’s filings from time to time with the SEC, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. Teekay expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in Teekay’s expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
