Actual results may differ materially from those expressed herein due to many factors, including, without limitation: the risk that more than 4,750,000 of Infinity's ordinary shares will be validly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the tender offer for such shares which would then cause it to (i) be unable to satisfy the conditions of the share tender offer and the merger agreement, (ii) be unable to consummate the transaction, and (iii) withdraw the tender offers; the risk that governmental and regulatory review of the tender offer documents may delay the transaction or result in the inability of the transaction to be consummated by April 25, 2014 and the length of time necessary to consummate the transaction; the risk that a condition to consummation of the transaction may not be satisfied or waived; the risk that the anticipated benefits of the transaction may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected; the risk that any projections, including earnings, revenues, expenses, margins, or any other financial items are not realized; the ability to list and comply with NASDAQ's continuing listing standards, including having the requisite number of round lot holders or stockholders; competition and competitive factors in the markets in which Glori operates; the expected cost of recovering oil using the AERO System, demand for Glori's AERO System and expectations regarding future projects; adaptability of the AERO System and development of additional capabilities that will expand the types of oil fields to which Glori can apply its technology; plans to acquire and develop additional non-producing end of life oil fields and low-producing late-life oil fields and the availability of debt and equity financing to fund any such acquisitions; the percentage of the world's reservoirs that are suitable for the AERO System; the advantages of the AERO System compared to other enhanced oil recovery methods; and Glori's ability to develop and maintain positive relationships with its customers and prospective customers.
