In respect of the forward-looking statements and information concerning the anticipated completion of the proposed Arrangement and the anticipated timing for completion of the Arrangement, Bonnett's has provided such in reliance on certain assumptions that it believes are reasonable at this time, including assumptions regarding the ability of the parties to receive, in a timely manner, the necessary court and other third party approvals; and the ability of the parties to satisfy, in a timely manner, the other conditions to the closing of the Arrangement.
