These forward-looking statements are based on management's expectations and beliefs, and may involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results to be materially different from the results implied herein. In particular, although the above private placement financings have raised significant funding for the Company, the Company will require substantially more funds in order to complete its business plans for the next twelve months. Even if the Company is able to obtain the funding necessary to complete its business plans, there is no assurance that its business will be successful. To date, the Company has not earned significant revenues, and there are no assurances that the Company will earn significant revenues in the future.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements made in this press release.
