Forward-looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements. More
particularly, this press release contains statements concerning Azure's
business development strategy, projected commercial revenues and product

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. 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, 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 accessed at

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.
