Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements. More
particularly, this press release contains statements concerning the
anticipated use of the net proceeds from the Offering, Azure's business
development strategy, projected commercial revenues and product deliveries.

The forward-looking statements are based on certain key expectations and
assumptions made by Azure, including expectations and assumptions concerning
achievement of current timetables for development programs, target market
acceptance of Azure's products, current and new product performance,
availability and cost of labour and expertise, and evolving markets for power
for transportation vehicles. Although Azure 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 Azure can give no assurance that they will prove to be
correct. Actual results could differ materially from those currently
anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not
limited to, the risks associated with Azure's early stage of development,
lack of product revenues and history of losses, requirements for additional
financing, uncertainty as to commercial viability, uncertainty as to product
development and commercialization milestones being met, uncertainty as to the
market for Azure's products and unproven acceptance of Azure's technology,
competition for capital, product market and personnel, uncertainty as to
target markets, dependence upon third parties, changes in environmental laws
or policies, uncertainty as to patent and proprietary rights, availability of
management and key personnel, and acquisition integration risk. These risks
are set out in more detail in Azure's annual information form which can be

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made
as of the date hereof and Azure undertakes no obligation to update publicly
or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result
of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by
applicable securities laws.
