currently available, usually defined by words such as
anticipates, believes, estimates, plans, projects, expects,
hopes, intends, will, could, should, may, or similar expressions
which speak only as of the date the statement was made. Such
forward-looking statements are made to the safe harbor provisions
of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such
statements include, but are not limited to, statements

our estimated range of GAAP Diluted EPS and Adjusted EPS for
the quarter-ended March31, 2017;
our estimated range of GAAP Diluted EPS and Adjusted EPS for
the quarter-ended June30, 2017; and
our expectations about the performance of the Company in the
second half of 2017 and 2018.

Such forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain, and are
based upon the current beliefs, assumptions and expectations of
Company management and current market conditions, which are
subject to significant risks and uncertainties, as set forth in
the Risk Factors section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for
the year ended December31, 2016. As to the Companys business and
financial performance, the following factors, among others, could
cause actual results to materially differ from those in
forward-looking statements:

economic conditions, including future recessionary economic
cycles and downturns in customers business cycles,
particularly in market segments and industries in which we
have a significant concentration of customers;
increasing competition from trucking, rail, intermodal, and
brokerage competitors;
our ability to execute or integrate any future acquisitions
increases in driver compensation to the extent not offset by
increases in freight rates and difficulties in driver
recruitment and retention;
additional risks arising from our contractual agreements with
owner-operators that do not exist with Company drivers;
our ability to retain or replace key personnel;
our dependence on third parties for intermodal and brokerage
potential failure in computer or communications systems;
seasonal factors such as severe weather conditions that
increase operating costs;
the regulatory environment in which we operate, including
existing regulations and changes in existing regulations, or
violations by us of existing or future regulations;
the possible re-classification of owner-operators as
changes in rules or legislation by the National Labor
Relations Board, Congress, or states, and/or union organizing
our Compliance Safety Accountability rating;
government regulation with respect to our captive insurance
uncertainties and risks associated with our operations in
a significant reduction in, or termination of, our trucking
services by a key customer;
our significant ongoing capital requirements;
volatility in the price or availability of fuel, as well as
our ability to recover fuel prices through our fuel surcharge
fluctuations in new and used equipment prices or replacement
costs, and the potential failure of manufacturers to meet
their sale and trade-back obligations;
the impact that our leverage may have on the way we operate
our business and our ability to service our debt, including
compliance with our debt covenants;
restrictions contained in our debt agreements;
adverse impacts of insuring risk through our captive
insurance companies, including our need to provide restricted
cash and similar collateral for anticipated losses;
potential volatility or decrease in the amount of earnings as
a result of our claims exposure through our captive insurance
companies and third-party insurance;
the potential impact of the significant number of shares of
our common stock that is eligible for future sale;
goodwill impairment;
that we do not currently pay dividends;
the significant amount of our stock owned by Jerry Moyes and
the related control over the Company;
related-party transactions between the Company and Jerry
Moyes; and
conflicts of interest or potential litigation that may arise
from other businesses owned by controlling shareholder and
board member, Jerry Moyes, including pledges of Swift stock
and guarantees by Jerry Moyes related to other businesses.

Important factors, in addition to those listed above and in our
filings with the SEC, could impact us financially. As a result of
these and other factors, actual results may differ from those set
forth in the forward-looking statements, and the prices of the
Companys securities may dramatically fluctuate. The Company makes
no commitment, and disclaims any duty, to update or revise any
forward-looking statements to reflect future events, new
information or changes in these expectations, except as required
by law.
