Polite/professional alternative to 'It turns out'?

I have been tasked with coming up with a nicer phrase to use than 'It turns out'. It is to be used in situations like this one: > - 'It turns out' that we cannot... - 'It turns out' that we don't... I know those two examples are followed by negative words, but is there a nicer phrase that can be used? Perhaps even one that may soften the message? **Edit:** It is to be used in a spoken context (customer service). Thanks for the suggestions so far.
