Such forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions of management, including, without limitation, that the Company’s Amended Warrants will begin trading on the NEO on the date expected, that the Company will be able to list the Unlisted Warrants after the initial Supplemental Listing, that the Company or Endeavor will send notices to the holders of the Unlisted Warrants, that the warrant holders will receive such notices and that the Company’s operations will not be adversely impacted by COVID-19 or the ongoing conflict in eastern Europe. Additionally, these forward-looking statements involve numerous risks and uncertainties, including without limitation: technology challenges, the failure of the Company’s Amended Warrants to begin trading on the date expected, the failure of the Company to obtain NEO acceptance for the Supplement Listing of the Unlisted Warrants, changes in legislation or NEO rules, that the warrant holders of the Unlisted Warrants will not receive the notices from the Company or Endeavor and unanticipated costs. Although management of the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements or forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.
