CERTAIN FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Circular contains statements which are or may be, “forward-looking statements” which are prospective in nature. All statements, other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those concerning strategy, the economic outlook, production, cash flows and other operating results; growth prospects and outlook for operations, individually or in the aggregate; liquidity, capital resources and expenditure and the outcome and consequences of any pending litigation proceedings. These forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts, but rather reflect current expectations concerning future results and events and generally may be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases such as “believe”, “aim”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “foresee”, “forecast”, “likely”, “should”, “planned”, “may”, “estimated”, “potential” or similar words and phrases.
Examples of forward-looking statements include statements regarding a future financial position or future profits, cash flows, corporate strategy, anticipated levels of growth, estimates of capital expenditures, acquisition strategy and expansion prospects, or future capital expenditure levels and other economic factors, such as, amongst other things, interest and exchange rates. All these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. ZPI cautions that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results, financial and operating conditions, liquidity and the developments within the industries in which ZPI operates may differ materially from those made in, or suggested by, the forward-looking statements contained in this Circular.
All these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions, as regards ZPI and made by ZPI as communicated in publicly available documents, all of which are estimates and assumptions, although ZPI believes them to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain. Such estimates, assumptions or statements may not eventuate. Many factors (including factors not yet known to ZPI or not currently considered material) may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied in those estimates, statements or assumptions. ZPI Shareholders should keep in mind that any forward-looking statements made in this Circular or elsewhere are applicable only at the date on which such forward-looking statements are made. New factors that could cause the business of ZPI not to develop as expected may emerge from time to time and it is not possible to predict all of them. The extent to which any factor or combination of factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement are not known. ZPI has no duty to, and does not intend to, update or revise the forward-looking statements contained in this Circular after the date of issue of this Circular, except as may be required by law.
