"Equity markets in general, and microcap markets in particular, have always experienced significant volatility. As a result, the value of the securities held in our trading and investment accounts experience large quarterly fluctuations. The investing public remains reluctant to get involved in the market and that has a big effect on our business. Small projects are designed primarily for individual investors as opposed to institutions."

This release may contain "forward-looking statements" based on current expectations but involving known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Actual results of achievements may be materially different from those expressed or implied. The Company's plan and objectives are based on judgments with respect to future conditions in the securities markets as well as general assumptions regarding the economy and competitive environment in the securities industry, which can be volatile and out of our control. In particular, we make assumptions about our ability to complete corporate finance transactions and increase the volume and size of our securities operations, which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and often beyond the control of the Company. Therefore, there can be no assurance that any forward-looking statement will prove to be accurate.
