ADVISORY: Certain information in this news release, including the anticipated closing of the private placement and the use of the proceeds to incur Canadian Development Expenses, constitute forward-looking statements under applicable securities laws. Although Tuscany believes that the expectations reflected in these forward looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because Tuscany can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. The closing of the private placement could be delayed if Tuscany is not able to obtain the necessary stock exchange approval on the timeline it has planned. The private placement will not be completed at all if this approval is not obtained or some other condition to the closing is not satisfied. Accordingly, there is a risk that the private placement will not be completed within the anticipated time or at all. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and the Corporation does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.
Where amounts are expressed on a barrel of oil equivalent (boe) basis, natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil at six thousand cubic feet (mcf) per barrel (bbl). Boe figures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion of six thousand cubic feet per barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. References to oil in this discussion include crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs).
NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
