As a result, we cannot guarantee that any forward-looking statements will materialize. Assumptions, expectations and estimates made in the preparation of forward-looking statements and risks that could cause our actual results to differ materially from our current expectations are discussed in our documents filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Except as required by law, we do not undertake to update these forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by us or on our behalf.
