Cautionary Statement About Forward-Looking Information
Certain statements and information contained in the Site, the documents accessible on the Site and the documents incorporated by reference in the Site may constitute “forward-looking information”, as such term is defined in applicable Canadian securities legislation. The words “may”, “would”, “could”, “should”, “potential”, “will”, “seek”, “intend”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “expect” and similar expressions as they relate to Paulson, Paulson’s intentions or objectives as they relate to Detour and its shareholders, the impact of the Paulson Nominees, if elected, on the financial condition, operations, business, strategies, revenue, competitive position of Detour, or its future management and other matters, are intended to identify forward-looking information. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking information.
Material factors or assumptions that were applied in providing forward-looking information, include, but are not limited to, Detour’s future growth potential, its results of operations, future cash flows, the future performance and business prospects and opportunities of Detour, the election and support of the Paulson Nominees, the ability of the Paulson Nominees, if elected, to effect positive change at Detour, the response to and outcome of any court applications that may be made against Paulson, the implementation and timing of Detour’s business strategy and the current general regulatory environment and economic conditions remaining unchanged.
Forward-looking information contained in the Site, the documents accessible on the Site and the documents incorporated by reference in the Site reflect the current views, expectations and intentions of Paulson regarding future events and operating performance of Detour, and speak only as of the date of the document in which the forward-looking information is provided or made. Such forward-looking information is based on currently available competitive, financial and economic data and operating plans and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Detour, or general industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Uncertainty and volatility regarding global financial and credit markets may impact the global, North American and Canadian economies in unpredictable ways and may impact the results of Detour in a manner which is currently impossible to ascertain. Many other factors could also cause Detour’s actual results, performance or achievements to vary from those expressed or inferred herein, including without limitation, the possibility that the anticipated benefits from the election of the Paulson Nominees cannot be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected;the ability of Detour to retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with customers, suppliers or other business partners following the election of the Paulson Nominees; the impact of legislative, regulatory, competitive and technological changes; the state of the economy; credit and equity markets; availability of credit and other financing; and the financial markets in general; gold price volatility; the uncertainties involved in interpreting geological data; increases in costs; environmental compliance and changes in environmental legislation; regulation and policies; support of the Detour’s Aboriginal communities; receipt of permits; interest rate and exchange rate fluctuations; general economic conditions and other risks involved in the gold exploration, development and production industry. Many of these risks and uncertainties could affect Detour’s actual results and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking information provided by Paulson. The impact of any one factor on a particular piece of forward-looking information is not determinable with certainty as such factors are interdependent upon other factors, and Paulson’s course of action would depend upon its assessment of the future considering all information then available.
Should any factor affect Detour or Paulson in an unexpected manner, or should assumptions underlying the forward-looking information prove incorrect, the actual results or events may differ materially from the results or events predicted.
