Forward-looking statements concerning the availability of funding for future operations are based upon the assumption that the sources of funding which the Corporation has relied upon in the past will continue to be available to the Corporation on terms favorable to the Corporation and that future economic and operating conditions will not limit the Corporation's access to debt and equity markets. Forward-looking statements concerning the relative future competitive position of the Corporation is based upon the assumptions that economic and operating conditions, including commodity prices, crude oil and natural gas storage levels, interest rates, the regulatory framework regarding oil and natural gas royalties, environmental regulatory matters, the ability of the Corporation and its subsidiary to successfully market their PRD (as defined herein) services in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin ("WCSB") and North Dakota and their DS division (as defined herein) in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, the Rocky Mountain region (consisting of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Utah) and North Dakota will lead to sufficient demand for the Corporation and its subsidiaries' services including demand for oilfield services for drilling and completion of oil and natural gas wells, that the current business environment will remain substantially unchanged, and that present and anticipated programs and expansion plans of other organizations operating in the energy service industry will result in increased demand for the Corporation's services and its subsidiary's services.

Many of these factors, expectations and assumptions are based on management's knowledge and experience in the industry and on public disclosure of industry participants and analysts relating to anticipated exploration and development programs of oil and natural gas producers, the effect of changes to regulatory, taxation and royalty regimes, expected industry equipment utilization in the WCSB, the Rocky Mountain region, North Dakota, and other matters.
