expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and
other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ

statements with respect to closing of the Offering, the use of

Shares and the timing of the renunciation of the development
The forward-looking statements are based on certain key
expectations and assumptions made by Journey. Although Journey
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
Journey 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, risks associated with the
condition of the global economy, including trade, public health
(including the impact of COVID-19) and other geopolitical risks;
risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g.,
operational risks in development, exploration and production;
delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or
development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of
reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections
relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and
environmental risks); commodity price and exchange rate
fluctuations and constraint in the availability of services,
adverse weather or break-up conditions; uncertainties resulting
from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to
exploration or development projects or capital expenditures.
Certain of these risks are set out in more detail in Journey's AIF
dated March 31, 2022 and in Journey's MD&A for the
period ended September 30, 2022, both of which have been filed
on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com.
