The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by CGX. Although CGX 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 CGX can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct.

Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. The intended use of the net proceeds of the Underwriting by CGX might change if the board of directors of CGX determines that it would be in the best interests of CGX to deploy the proceeds for some other purpose.
