Although the Company believes that such statements are reasonable and reflect expectations of future developments and other factors which management believes to be reasonable and relevant, the Company can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.

In making the forward-looking statements in this news release, the Company has applied several material assumptions, including without limitation, the receipt of any necessary permits, licenses and regulatory approvals in connection with the Reverse Takeover and the future development of the Company and Dreamfields’ business in a timely manner and the availability of the financing required for the Company to carry out its planned future activities.
