Forward-Looking Statement

The statement "…finding a suitable alternative for our secured lender's ("Secured Lender") term loan which matures at the end of March…" is a forward-looking statement. The intention was to communicate Company management and its Board of Directors intentions with respect to the term loan secured by all of the assets of the Company. If Memex is unable to extend the term of this loan, or source alternative financing to repay the Secured Lender prior to its maturity it will be in default, and the lenders will be entitled to pursue all remedies available to them under the terms of that loan including but not limited to, enforcing on its security and seizing all of the assets of Memex. Such an event could have a material adverse effect on the business, operations and capital of Memex and could lead to the suspension of operations. There can be no guarantee that Memex will be able to extend the term of this loan or source alternative financing. Further, in the event that Memex is able to extend the term of the loan with the Secured Lender or source alternative financing, there is no guarantee that such terms of the extension or the alternative financing will be on terms favourable to Memex or its shareholders.
