The following responsibility statement is extracted from page 155 of the 2023 Annual Report and is repeated here solely for the purposes of complying with Disclosure and Transparency Rule 6.3.5.  Responsibility is for the full 2023 Annual Report, not the information presented in this announcement or the RELX 2023 Results Announcement.

-      the Annual Report and Financial Statements, taken as a whole, is fair, balanced and understandable and provides the information necessary for shareholders to assess the Company's position and performance, business model and strategy.

 

Forward-looking statements

These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or outcomes of RELX PLC (together with its subsidiaries, "RELX", "we" or "our") to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. We consider any statements that are not historical facts to be "forward-looking statements". The terms "outlook", "estimate", "forecast", "project", "plan", "intend", "expect", "should", "could", "will", "believe", "trends" and similar expressions may indicate a forward-looking statement. Important factors that could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from estimates or forecasts contained in the forward-looking statements include, among others: regulatory and other changes regarding the collection or use of personal data; changes in law and legal interpretations affecting RELX intellectual property rights and internet communications; current and future geopolitical, economic and market conditions; changes in the payment model for RELX scientific, technical and medical research products; competitive factors in the

industries in which RELX operates and demand for RELX products and services; inability to realise the future anticipated benefits of acquisitions; compromises of RELX cyber security systems or other unauthorised access to our databases; changes in economic cycles, communicable disease epidemics or pandemics, severe weather events, natural disasters and terrorism; failure of third parties to whom RELX has outsourced business activities; significant failure or interruption of RELX systems; inability to retain high-quality employees and management; changes in tax laws and uncertainty in their application; exchange rate fluctuations; adverse market conditions or downgrades to the credit ratings of our debt; changes in the market values of defined benefit pension scheme assets and in the market-related assumptions used to value scheme liabilities; breaches of generally accepted ethical business standards or applicable laws; and other risks referenced from time to time in the filings of RELX PLC with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of the 2023 Annual Report and the 2023 Form 20-F. Except as may be required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or release any revisions to these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of the 2023 Annual Report and the 2023 Form 20-F, or to reflect events or circumstances after the date of the 2023 Annual Report and the 2023 Form 20-F, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
