ADVISORY: This press release contains forward looking statements. More particularly, this press release contains forward looking statements concerning the private placement. Although Paris and MAPAN believe that the expectations reflected in these forward looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because neither Paris nor MAPAN can give assurances that they will prove to be correct.

Actual results, performance or achievements could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these forward-looking statements and, accordingly, no assurance can be given that any events anticipated by the forward-looking statements will transpire or occur. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect Paris and MAPAN are included in reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and may be accessed through the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com). The forward looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and neither Paris nor MAPAN undertakes any obligation to update publicly or revise any forward looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.
