Cautionary Language Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Site may contain statements, estimates or projections that constitute "forward-looking statements" as defined under applicable securities laws. Often, but not always, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of words or phrases such as: “expects”, “anticipates”, “plans”, “estimates”, “projects”, “believes”, “intends”, “likely”, “possible”, “probable”, “scheduled”, “positioned”, “goal”, “objective” or states that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved. In particular, this Site’s forward-looking information concerning: EquityLine’s use of proceeds, payment and of dividends, stability and rate of return on investment, the nature of EquityLine’s mortgage investments, EquityLine’s status as an MIC under the Income Tax Act (Canada). By their nature, forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, inherent risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and various future events will not occur. A number of factors, many of which are beyond EquityLine’s control, could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking information. Information on these and other risk factors are included under the headings “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in the Offering Memorandum. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements contained herein are made as of the date of the particular web page, and EquityLine disclaims any obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements, except as required by law.
