    Forward-Looking Statements

    This press release contains forward-looking statements. More
particularly, this press release contains statements concerning Azure
Dynamics' business development strategy and projected commercial revenues.

    The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and
assumptions made by Azure Dynamics, including expectations and assumptions
concerning achievement of current timetables for development programs, target
market acceptance of Azure Dynamics' products, current and new product
performance, availability and cost of labour and expertise, and evolving
markets for power for transportation vehicles.

    Although Azure Dynamics 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 Azure Dynamics
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. These include, but are not limited to, the risks associated with
Azure Dynamics' early stage of development, lack of product revenues and
history of losses, requirements for additional financing, uncertainty as to
commercial viability, uncertainty as to product development and
commercialization milestones being met, uncertainty as to the market for Azure
Dynamics' products and unproven acceptance of Azure Dynamics' technology,
competition for capital, product market and personnel, uncertainty as to
target markets, dependence upon third parties, changes in environmental laws
or policies, uncertainty as to patent and proprietary rights, availability of
management and key personnel, and acquisition integration risk. These risks
are set out in more detail in Azure Dynamics' annual information form which

    The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made
as of the date hereof and Azure Dynamics 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
