Forward Looking Statements, BOE Equivalents and Cautionary Statements

This press release contains forward looking statements. These statements relate to future events or our future performance. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as “seek”, “anticipate”, “plan”, “continue”, “estimate”, “approximate”, “expect”, “may”, “will”, “project”, “predict”, “potential”, “targeting”, “intend”, “could”, “might”, “should”, “believe”, “would” and similar expressions. More particularly, this press release contains statements concerning the acquisition of the Assets, the anticipated timing of the Transaction, the anticipated timing of the Meeting and the mailing of the Information Circular, the contents of the Information Circular, the benefits of the Transaction, the conduct of the Shareholder vote to approve the Transaction and certain related matters. These statements involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond the Company’s control, and may be based on assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, such forward-looking statements. Although Mountainview believes that the expectations reflected in these forward looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because Mountainview 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. Mountainview may not be able to obtain the necessary shareholder, regulatory and stock exchange approvals on the timelines it has planned or at all. The Transaction and the Continuance will not be completed at all if these approvals are not obtained. Accordingly, there is a risk that the Transaction and the Continuance will not be completed within the anticipated time or at all.

The forward looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and Mountainview undertakes no obligations 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.

All calculations converting natural gas to barrels of oil equivalent (“boe”) have been made using a conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet (six “Mcf”) of natural gas to one barrel of oil, unless otherwise stated. The use of boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation, as the conversion ratio of six Mcf of natural gas to one barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
