Certain information set forth in this press release contains forward-looking statements. The use of any of the words "intend", "may", "will", "expect", and similar expressions and statements relating to matters that are not historical facts are intended to identify forward-looking information and are based on the Company's current beliefs or assumptions as to the outcome and timing of such future events. Actual future results may differ materially. In particular, this press release contains forward-looking information with respect to the Offering; the Warrants; the Investment Dealer Exemption; statutory hold periods; the principal uses of the proceeds of the Offering; and the anticipated closing of the Offering. Various assumptions or factors are typically applied in drawing conclusions or making the forecasts or projections set out in forward-looking information. Those assumptions and factors are based on information currently available to the Company. The material facts and assumptions upon which the information set forth in this press release is based include obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals in respect of the proposed Offering; the availability of certain prospectus exemptions in respect of the Offering; and the intended use of proceeds remaining in the best interests of the Company. The anticipated use of proceeds assumes that the Offering will occur as contemplated and assumes the existence of certain other conditions with respect to the capital expenditure program of the Company, general economic conditions, industry conditions, currency fluctuations and commodity prices. In each case, the risk factors that could cause actual results to vary from results expressed or implied by the forward looking statements contained in this press release are primarily beyond the Company's control and include the risk that the Offering will not be successfully completed for any reason (including the failure to obtain the required approvals or clearances from regulatory authorities) as well as risks related to general economic conditions, industry conditions, currency fluctuations, volatility of commodity prices, exploration risk, escalation of operating and capital costs, the ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources and competition from other industry participants for, among other things, capital, services and acquisitions of new properties. These forward-looking statements may prove to be incorrect and undue reliance should not be placed on them. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and unless otherwise required by applicable law, the Company does not intend and does not assume any obligation to update or revise such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
