This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to the expected use of proceeds from the private placement. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it cannot give any assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Results may be affected by a variety of variables and risks associated with oil and gas exploration, production and transportation, loss of market, volatility of oil and gas prices, currency fluctuations, imprecision of reserve estimates, environmental risks, competition from other producers, ability to access sufficient debt and equity capital from internal and external sources, ability to replace and expand oil and gas reserves, ability to generate sufficient cash flow from operations to meet its current and future obligations, risks associated with existing and potential future lawsuits and regulatory actions made against the Company, and risks associated with completing the acquisition of petroleum and natural gas rights on the expected terms or at all; as a consequence, actual results could differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are based, in part, on the assumption that the Company will receive a receipt for a prospectus in all filing jurisdictions by July 30, 2010.
