This news release contains forward-looking statements relating to the Acquisition and the Financing, including the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, satisfaction of all other closing conditions in connection with both such transactions, the resumption of the trading in the Common Shares and other statements that are not historical facts. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward looking statements, as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which they are based will occur. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not occur, which
may cause actual performance and results in future periods to differ materially from any estimates or projections of future performance or results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
These assumptions, risks and uncertainties include, among other things: the risk that the Financing will not be completed if a formal agency agreement is not reached or that the brokers are not satisfied with their due diligence of Alloy and Lancaster; the risk that necessary exemptions are not obtained or some other condition to the closing of either the Acquisition or the Financing is not satisfied or waived within the requisite timelines; the risk that the Financing is not completed for minimum gross proceeds of $5,000,000; and risks relating to the state of the economy in general and capital markets in particular, as well as investor interest in the business and future prospects of Alloy and Lancaster.
The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date of this press release. Except as required by law, Alloy, Leominex and Lancaster disclaim any intention and assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable securities law. Additionally, Alloy, Leominex and Lancaster undertake no obligation to comment on the expectations of, or statements made by, third parties in respect of the matters discussed above.
