The information in this news release includes certain information and statements about management's view of future events, expectations, plans and prospects, including the use of proceeds from the Offering and the Bridge Loan, the approval of the Offering by shareholders of the Corporation, the completion of the Offering and Bridge Loan, the anticipated closing date of the Offering and the ability of the Corporation to repay the Bridge Loan that constitute forward looking statements.
These statements are based upon assumptions that are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Because of these risks and uncertainties and as a result of a variety of factors, the actual results, expectations, achievements or performance may differ materially from those anticipated and indicated by these forward looking statements. Although RMS believes that the expectations reflected in forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurances that the expectations of any forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. The closing of the Offering may not be completed if definitive documentation cannot be finalized, the shareholders of RMS do not approve the Offering at the Meeting, or RMS is unable to obtain the necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals on the timelines it has planned or if some other condition to the closing is not satisfied. Accordingly, there is a risk that the Offering will not be completed within the anticipated time, on the ter ms currently proposed, or at all, and the ability and timing of the Corporation to repay the Bridge Loan may change. The intended use of the proceeds of the Offering by RMS might change if the board of directors of RMS determines that it would be in the best interests of RMS to deploy the proceeds for some other purpose.
