All such statements are forward-looking statements under applicable Canadian securities legislation. Any statements contained herein that are not statements of historical facts may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. In particular, this news release contains forward-looking statements pertaining to the terms of the Private Placement, the use of proceeds of the Private Placement, the timing and ability of the Company to close additional tranches of the Private Placement and the timing and ability of the Company to receive necessary regulatory approvals for the Private Placement, including the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. By their nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions. Assumptions are based in part on the ability to fulfill the remaining conditions precedent to the closing of, and secure the required regulatory approval for, the Private Placement. These statements are based on current expectations that involve several risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to, risks relating to the Company failing to obtain the requisite regulatory (including the TSX Venture Exchange) approvals of the Private Placement and ancillary matters; the impact of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's business, operations and sales; uncertainties relating to the ultimate spread, severity and duration of COVID-19 and related adverse effects on the economies and financial markets of countries in which the Company operates; and the ability of the Company to successfully implement its business continuity plans with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward looking statements contained in this news release, and the assumptions on which such forward-looking statements are made, are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. We caution our readers of this news release not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements as a number of factors could cause actual results or conditions to differ materially from current expectations.
