expansion and growth of Maple Leaf's business and operations and other such

Maple Leaf has identified that it will receive certain amounts of funds
monthly for organic fish meal which will be delivered to the parties that it
has contracted with. It is not certain that Maple Leaf will ever receive these
amounts, as the contracting parties have only entered 'letters of intent',
thus legally binding purchase agreements have not yet been formally entered.
As such, Maple Leaf is not guaranteed to receive any such payments. Maple Leaf
does anticipate that it will receive funds equal to the amounts indicated
above over the course of the deliveries to each purchaser, however obtaining
the full amounts will depend on the purchaser's satisfaction with the initial
product and their desire to receive and pay for subsequent deliveries.
Maple Leaf maintains a forward-looking statement database which is
reviewed by management on a regular basis to ensure that no material change
has occurred with respect to such forecasts. The Company will publicly
disclose such material changes to its forward-looking statements as soon as
they are known to management.
