Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this press release contains statements that include, but are not limited to, the closing of the private placement and the calling and holding of a special meeting of shareholders. Forward-looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as "plan", "expect", "project", "intend", "believe",  anticipate", "estimate", "may", "will", "would", "potential", "proposed" and other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by CGX. Although CGX believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because CGX can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. In addition to other risks that may affect the forward-looking statements in this press release and those set out in CGX's management discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012, the private placement could be delayed or not occur if the Company is unable to obtain the requisite shareholder approval on the timelines it has planned, if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern until the closing of the private placement, or if some other condition to the closing is not satisfied.  The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and CGX undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.
