Forward Looking Statements
This document contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this document contains statements concerning the use of proceeds of the Rights Offering and the anticipated timing and completion of the Share Consolidation and Name Change. The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by OneEx, including expectations and assumptions concerning timing of receipt of required regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of other conditions to the completion of the Share Consolidation and Name Change. Although OneEx 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 OneEx can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct.
Completion of the Share Consolidation and Name Change are subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to the ability of the Corporation to maintain its TSX Venture Exchange Tier Maintenance Requirements post consolidation. There can be no assurance that the Share Consolidation or Name Change will be completed as proposed, or on a specific date, or at all. Further to this, there can be no assurances that the market price of the new Class A shares will increase as a result of the Share Consolidation. The marketability and trading liquidity of the consolidated shares of the Corporation may not improve as a result of the Share Consolidation. The Share Consolidation may result in some shareholders owning "odd lots" of less than 100 Class A shares which may be more difficult for such shareholders to sell or which may require greater transaction costs per share to sell.
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, risks that the board of directors of OneEx determines that it would be in the best interests of OneEx to deploy the proceeds for some other purpose and risks that conditions to the completion of the Share Consolidation and Name Change are not satisfied on the timelines set forth in this news release or at all.
The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and OneEx 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.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
