    Caution concerning forward-looking statements

    This document includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of
certain securities laws, including the "safe harbour" provisions of the
Securities Act (Ontario) and other provincial securities law in Canada. These
forward-looking statements include, among others, statements with respect to
our objectives, goals and strategies to achieve those objectives and goals, as
well as statements with respect to our beliefs, plans, objectives,
expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions. The words "may",
"will", "could", "should", "would", "suspect", "outlook", "believe", "plan",
"anticipate", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "forecast", "objective" and
"continue" (or the negative thereof), and words and expressions of similar
import, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
    By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks
and uncertainties, both general and specific, which give rise to the
possibility that predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking
statements will not be achieved. Certain material factors or assumptions are
applied in making forward-looking statements and actual results may differ
materially from those expressed or implied in such statements. We caution
readers not to place undue reliance on these statements, as a number of
important factors, many of which are beyond our control, could cause our
actual results to differ materially from the beliefs, plans, objectives,
expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions expressed in such
forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to,
general economic conditions; dependence on government-based revenues; the
ability to renew the MOH contract on favourable terms; pending and proposed
legislative or regulatory developments including the impact of changes in
laws, regulations and the enforcement thereof; intensifying competition,
resulting from established competitors and new entrants in the businesses in
which we operate; technological change; interest rate fluctuations; insurance
coverage of sufficient scope to satisfy any liability claims; fluctuations in
operating results; dependence on our operating subsidiary to pay its interest
obligations to us; fluctuations in cash distributions and capital investment;
management of credit, market, liquidity and funding and operational risks;
judicial judgments and legal proceedings; privacy laws; our ability to
complete strategic acquisitions and to integrate our acquisitions
successfully; changes in accounting policies and methods we use to report our
financial condition, including uncertainties associated with critical
accounting assumptions and estimates; operational and infrastructure risks
including possible equipment failure and performance of information technology
systems; fluctuations in total patient referrals; loss of services of key
senior management personnel; other factors that may affect future growth and
results including timely development and introduction of new products and
services, changes in our estimates relating to reserves and allowances, future
sales of units, changes in tax laws, technological changes and obsolescence,
natural disasters, the possible impact on our businesses from public health
emergencies, international conflicts and other developments including those
relating to terrorism; the effect of any one or more of such events and risks
on our stability ratings and any changes thereto; and our success in
anticipating and managing the foregoing risks. Additional factors related to
the Acquisition include, but are not limited to, our ability to successfully
integrate the operations of ARS; additional liabilities or costs attributable
to the Acquisition; unknown liabilities of ARS; the ability to retain senior
management of ARS; the ability to complete accretive acquisitions in the U.S.;
the continuation and nature of the relationship with Johns Hopkins; and
changes in U.S. federal and state healthcare laws and regulations, including
with respect to Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements levels.
    We caution that the foregoing list of important factors that may affect
future results is not exhaustive. When reviewing our forward-looking
statements, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing
factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Additional information
about factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from
expectations, and about material factors or assumptions applied in making
forward-looking statements, may be found in the "Risk Factors" section hereof,
