Completion of the Offering will be subject to several conditions including the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V").

The statements that are concerning the Offering are forward-looking statements. The words "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "estimate", "intend", "may", "will", "would" and similar expressions and the negative of such expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward-looking statements are subject to important assumptions, including the following specific assumptions: receipt of all necessary approvals and general market conditions at the time of the Offering. While Mukuba considers these factors and assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available, they may prove to be incorrect.
Known and unknown factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to: failure to receive necessary approvals and negative general market conditions.
