Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities laws which is based on the expectations, estimates and projections of management of the parties as of the date of this news release unless otherwise stated. The use of any of the words “expect”, “anticipate”, “continue”, “estimate”, “objective”, “ongoing”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “should”, “believe”, “plans”, “intends” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information. More particularly and without limitation, this press release contains forward-looking information concerning: the timing and anticipated receipt of court approval for the Arrangement; the ability of the parties to satisfy the other conditions to, and to complete, the Arrangement; and the anticipated timing for the closing of the Arrangement, the receipt of court approval and the anticipated Participating Noteholder Funding Deadline. In respect of the forward-looking information, the Company has provided such in reliance on certain assumptions that it believes are reasonable at this time, including the ability of the parties to receive, in a timely manner and on satisfactory terms, the necessary court approval; the ability of the parties to satisfy, in a timely manner, the other conditions to the closing of the Arrangement; and other expectations and assumptions concerning the Arrangement. The anticipated dates provided may change for a number of reasons, including the inability to secure the necessary court approval in the time assumed or the need for additional time to satisfy the other conditions to the completion of the Arrangement. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on the forward-looking information contained in this press release. Since forward-looking information addresses future events and conditions, by its very nature it involves inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. Risks and uncertainties inherent in the nature of the Arrangement include the failure of the Company to obtain the necessary court approval, or to otherwise satisfy the conditions to the completion of the Arrangement, in a timely manner, or at all. Failure to so obtain such approvals, or the failure of the parties to otherwise satisfy the conditions to or compete the Arrangement, may result in the Arrangement not being completed on the proposed terms, or at all. In addition, if the transaction is not completed, and the Company continues as an independent entity, there are risks that the announcement of the Arrangement and the dedication of substantial resources of the Company to the completion of transaction could have an impact on the Company’s current business relationships (including with future and prospective employees, customers, suppliers and partners) and could have a material adverse effect on the current and future operations, financial condition and prospects of the Company. Furthermore, the failure of the Company to comply with the terms of the arrangement agreement governing the Arrangement may result in it being required to pay certain fees to an affiliate of funds affiliated with Apollo and certain funds advised or sub-advised by GSO, the result of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on other factors that could affect the operations or financial results of the Company are included in reports on file with applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities. The forward-looking information contained in this press release is made as of the date hereof and the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.
