Reader Advisory

Forward-Looking Statements. This press release contains forward-looking statements and information. More particularly, this document contains statements and information concerning the closing of the private placement and the use of proceeds from the private placement. Forward-looking information is frequently characterized by words such as “plan”, “expect”, “project”, “intend”, “will”, “believe”, “anticipate”, “estimate”, “scheduled”, “potential”, or other similar words, or statements that certain events or conditions “may”, “should” or “could” occur.

The forward-looking statements and information are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Prize, including expectations and assumptions concerning timing of receipt of required regulatory approval, the completion of the private placement and the use of proceeds from the private placement. Although Prize 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 Prize 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. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, risks that required regulatory approvals are not obtained and that the private placement is not completed due to other closing conditions not being satisfied. There is no certainty that the private placement will be completed.

The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information, which speaks only as of the date hereof. The Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to forward-looking information contained herein to reflect events or circumstances that occur after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

Not a U.S. Offering. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful, including in the United States. The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”) or any applicable securities laws of any state of the United States and may not be offered or sold in the United States, or to, or for the account or benefit of a U.S. person (as defined in Regulation S 2 under the 1933 Act) unless registered or pursuant to an available exemption from such registration requirements.
