This press release contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this press release contains statements concerning the use of proceeds of the Offering. The forward-looking statements contained in this document are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Antler Creek, including expectations and assumptions concerning the closing of the previously announced acquisitions, the success of future drilling and development activities, the performance of existing wells, the performance of new wells and prevailing commodity prices. Although Antler Creek 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 Antler Creek 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 failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals or satisfy the conditions to closing the transactions, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Certain of these risks are set out in more detail in Antler Creek's Annual Information Form which has been filed on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com.
