These statements are made as of the date of this press release and the fact that this press release remains available does not constitute a representation by GLC that the Company believes these forward-looking statements continue to be true as of any subsequent date. Although GLC believes that the assumptions underlying, and expectations reflected in, these forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that these assumptions and expectations will prove to be correct. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the automatic exercise of the Special Warrants, the timing of the automatic exercise of the Special Warrants, the timing of obtaining a receipt for the Company’s final short form prospectus, and GLC’s vision of becoming a best-in-class, environmentally responsible, Canadian lithium producer supporting the global energy transition.
Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: GLC’s expectation that our operations will be in Western Canada, unexpected problems can arise due to technical difficulties and operational difficulties which impact the production, transport or sale of our products; geographic and weather conditions can impact the production; the risk that current global economic and credit conditions may impact commodity prices and consumption more than GLC currently predicts; the failure to obtain financing on reasonable terms; the risk that unexpected delays and difficulties in developing currently owned properties may occur; the failure of drilling to result in commercial projects; unexpected delays due to the limited availability of drilling equipment and personnel; risk of receiving a receipt for the final short form prospectus; and the
other risk factors detailed from time to time in GLC’s periodic reports. GLC’s forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.
