Do Not Rely on Stock Price Information
We do not generate the information regarding Ivanhoe Energy Inc. stock prices for our web site. We believe the stock price information on the Investor Information page is accurate, but we cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the information. You should not rely on the stock price information for investment purposes.

Do Not Rely on Forward-Looking Information
Some of the statements on our web site, including those relating to Ivanhoe Energy's business and project plans, are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, specifically the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events. Sometimes these statements will use words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "outlook," "forecast," and other similar words. These statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual performance to be materially different from those we project.
Given these uncertainties, you should not rely on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they initially were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to any forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, to reflect events or circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events after the date they initially were made, except and to the extend required by applicable law.
Relevant factors set forth in our Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that could affect the forward-looking statements include: the possibility that commercial-scale "heavy-to-light" and "gas-to-liquids" plants will not achieve the same results as those demonstrated on a laboratory or pilot basis or that such plants will experience technological and mechanical problems, the possibility that improvements to the Syntroleum "gas-to-liquids" process currently under development may not be successful, the impact on plant economics of operating conditions (including energy prices), competition, intellectual property risks, construction risks, that Ivanhoe Energy's oil and natural gas drilling will experience technological and mechanical problems, the risks associated with investments and operations in foreign jurisdictions, the ability to implement corporate strategies and the ability to obtain financing. These are only some of the numerous factors which may affect the forward-looking statements contained on our web site.
