Observing SAP’s Disclaimer on Statements

Executive Summary

  • SAP has a disclaimer when it publishes documents.
  • We analyze this disclaimer.

Introduction

One of the major issues of documents published by SAP is that while the statements are quite assertive, every one of the documents contains a legal disclaimer which states that none of the information provided is reliable or should be relied upon.
