They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include the condition of the credit and financial markets, the effects of the global recession, the future price of natural gas, future legislation, markets for smaller public companies, general reluctance of businesses to utilize new technology, continued positive results in the field, Hydrozonix acceptance of the initial two units, and Hydrozonix placing additional orders.
