Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such FLS are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on FLS because the Company can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.

The anticipated date indicated may change for a number of reasons. Accordingly, investors and others are cautioned that undue reliance should not be placed on any FLS.
Risks and uncertainties inherent in the nature of the Arrangement and the process for de-listing the Subordinate Voting Shares and ceasing to be a reporting issuer that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in such FLS include, but are not limited to, the failure of the parties to satisfy the conditions to the completion of the Arrangement; failure of the parties to satisfy such conditions in a timely manner; the possibility of adverse reactions or changes in business relationships resulting from the completion of the Arrangement; the possibility of litigation relating to the Arrangement; credit, market, currency, operational, liquidity and funding risks generally and relating specifically to the Arrangement; significant Arrangement costs or unknown liabilities; the failure to realize the expected benefits of the Arrangement; and general economic conditions; as well as the identified risk factors included in the Company’s public disclosure, including the annual information form dated March 29, 2022, which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www.faxcapitalcorp.com. Failure of the parties to satisfy the conditions to the completion of the Arrangement or to complete the Arrangement may result in the Arrangement not being completed on the proposed terms, or at all. In addition, if the Arrangement is not completed, and the Company continues as an independent entity, there are risks that the announcement of the Arrangement and the dedication of substantial resources of the Company to the completion of the Arrangement could have an impact on its business, operating results and activities in general.
