Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain
risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ
materially from those projected in such statements. A major risk
is that demand for Quaker Chemical’s products and services is
largely derived from the demand for its customers’ products,
which subjects Quaker Chemical to uncertainties related to
downturns in a customer’s business and unanticipated customer
production shutdowns. Other major risks and uncertainties
include, but are not limited to, significant increases in raw
material costs, customer financial stability, worldwide economic
and political conditions, foreign currency fluctuations,
significant changes in applicable tax rates and regulations,
future terrorist attacks and other acts of violence. Other
factors, including those related to the transaction, could also
adversely affect us including, but not limited to:

the risk that Quaker Chemical shareholders may not approve
the issuance of certain consideration for the proposed
transaction;
the risk that a required regulatory approval will not be
obtained or is subject to conditions that are not anticipated
or acceptable to us;
the potential for regulatory authorities to require
divestitures in connection with the proposed transaction,
which would result in a smaller than anticipated combined
business;
the risk that a closing condition to the proposed transaction
may not be satisfied in a timely manner;
risks associated with the financing of the transaction;
the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance
that could give rise to the termination of the purchase
agreement;
potential adverse effects on Quaker Chemicals business,
properties or operations caused by the implementation of the
transaction;
Quaker Chemicals ability to promptly, efficiently and
effectively integrate Global Houghtons operations into those
of Quaker Chemical;
risks related to the disruption of each companys time from
ongoing business operations due to the proposed transaction;
and,
the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted
against the companies following announcement of the merger
agreement and transactions contemplated therein.

Therefore, we caution you not to place undue reliance on our
forward-looking statements.

For more information regarding these risks and uncertainties as
well as certain additional risks that we face, you should refer
to the Risk Factors detailed in Item 1A of our 2016 Form 10-K,
and in our quarterly and other reports filed from time to time
with the Commission. We caution you not to place undue reliance
on these forward-looking statements, which are current only as of
the date on which we issued this report. We do not intend to, and
we disclaim any duty or obligation to, update or revise any
forward-looking statements to reflect new information or future
