necessarily mean that cash dividend payments will continue thereafter. Whether
future dividends will be declared will depend upon the Company's future growth
and earnings, of which there can be no assurance, and the Company's cash flow
needs for further expansion. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that cash
dividends on the Company's common shares will be declared beyond those
declared for 2013, what the amounts of such dividends will be or whether such
dividends, once declared for a specific period, will continue for any future
period, or at all.
