This news release discusses items that may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of securities laws and that involve risks and uncertainties. Such statements include those with respect to the completion of the Transaction, the composition of Section's board following the Transaction, the business plans and operations of Section following the Transaction and the Concurrent Financing. Although Sama and Section believe in light of the experience of its officers and directors, current conditions and expected future developments and other factors that have been considered appropriate that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, they can give no assurances that those expectations will be achieved and actual results may differ materially from those contemplated in the forward-looking statements and information. Such assumptions, which may prove incorrect, include the following: (i) the Transaction will obtain all required regulatory approvals in a timely fashion,
(ii) Sama and Section will agree on final documentation to complete the Transaction, (iii) Section's management will not identify and pursue other business objectives following the Transaction, (iv) Section will succeed in obtaining any necessary financing to fund its ongoing operations and work plans, including the Concurrent Financing, (v) no material obstacles, technical or otherwise, will hinder the operations of Section following the Transaction and (vi) the price of graphite will remain sufficiently high and the costs of advancing the Property sufficiently low so as to permit Section to implement its business plans in a profitable manner. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations include (i) the failure of Section to make effective use of their available funds following the Transaction, (ii) the failure of the drilling projects of Section for technical, logistical, labour-relations or other reasons, (iii) the inability of Sama or Section to obtain the necessary approvals for the Transaction, (iv) a decrease in the price of graphite below what is necessary to sustain the operations of Section, (v) an increase in the operating costs of Section above what is necessary to sustain its operations, (vi) accidents, labour disputes or the materialization of similar risks, (vii) a deterioration in capital market conditions that prevents Section from raising the funds that it requires Section on a timely basis (including by preventing it from completing the Concurrent Financing), (viii) an inability or unwillingness of Sama or Section to complete the Transaction for whatever reason, (ix) an inability or unwillingness of the individuals named above to serve as directors or officers of Section following the Transaction and (x) generally, an inability of Sama or Section to develop and implement a successful business plan for any reason. These factors and others are more fully discussed in Sama and Section's filings with Canadian securities regulatory authorities available at www.sedar.com. Actual results may vary from the forward-looking information and neither Sama nor Section assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statement except as required by applicable law.
