Forward Looking Information

Certain statements made in  this news release  are forward-looking in  nature, 
including statements  concerning  the completion  and  timing of  the  Private 
Placement, the anticipated use  of the net proceeds  of the Private  Placement 
and  statements  made  with  respect  to  Advantage's  operations,   including 
expectations as to the number of locations  and size of fleet. The closing  of 
the Private Placement  could be  delayed if  FSNA is  not able  to obtain  the 
necessary regulatory  and stock  exchange approvals  on the  timelines it  has 
planned. The Private Placement will not be completed at all if these approvals
are not obtained or if 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. The words  "may", "could",  "should", 
"would", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "believe", or "outlook"
and similar expressions often  identify forward-looking information. By  their 
nature, forward-looking statements  require FSNA to  make assumptions and  are 
subject to inherent  risks and uncertainties.  The forward-looking  statements 
contained in  this news  release are  based on  certain key  expectations  and 
assumptions made by  FSNA. Although  FSNA believes that  the expectations  and 
assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are  reasonable, 
undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements  because 
FSNA can  give  no  assurance that  they  will  prove to  be  correct.  FSNA's 
forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by these cautionary
statements. In addition, the  forward-looking statements are  made only as  of

law, FSNA undertakes  no obligation to  publicly update these  forward-looking
