ADVISORY: Certain information in this news release, including the anticipated closing of the private placement,the intended use of the proceeds to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses, the anticipated production dates for Tuscany’s new wells and Tuscany’s drilling plans constitute forward-looking statements under applicable securities laws. Although Tuscany believes that the expectations reflected in these forward looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because Tuscany can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. The closing of the private placement could be delayed if Tuscany is not able to obtain the necessary stock exchange approval on the timeline it has planned. The private placement will not be completed at all if this approval is not obtained or some other condition to the closing is not satisfied. Accordingly, there is a risk that the private placement will not be completed within the anticipated time or at all. Tuscany’s plans to bring its new wells on production and drill its initial well on its Morgan, Alberta property are subject to risks associated with, among other things, oil and gas exploration, development, exploitation and production, volatility of commodity prices, environmental risks, inability to retain drilling rigs and other services, capital expenditure costs, wells not performing as expected, and ability to access sufficient capital from internal and external sources. As a consequence, actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect Tuscany’s plans and operations are included in reports on file with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities and may be accessed through the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com) and at Tuscany’s website (www.tuscanyenergy.com) The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and the Corporation does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.
NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.Archived News Releases
