Renewable Energy Stock Alert: Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (SWET) Receives Energy Conversion Patent Allowance

ANNAPOLIS, MD - October 31, 2013 (Investorideas.com renewable energy stocks newswire) Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. (OTCQB: SWET) (the "Company"), the inventor of a large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure capable of producing abundant, inexpensive electricity, announced today it has been notified by US Patent Office of the Allowance of Patent Application # 13/027,409 which enhances and broadens previously issued Patent #8120191 covering the novel production of electric energy from traditional generators powered by a hydraulic pressure and drive system derived from multiple traditional wind turbines.

Ron Pickett, CEO, commented: "Our Company continues to protect by patent, trade secret, and proprietary information our solution to clean, affordable, alternative energy. Our business plan has always been to deliver this solution to developers, utilities, governments and sovereign nations and provide the team to produce the Tower. In exchange for enabling this solution, Solar Wind Energy's model is to receive license fees, development fees and recurring royalties based on the electricity produces by each project."
About Solar Wind Energy, Inc.
Solar Wind Energy, Inc. ("Solar Wind Energy"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc., was established to utilize proven and validated scientific principles, combining them with state of the art construction systems to enable the development and commercialization of large Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structures that produce abundant, inexpensive electricity.

Innovative Renewable Hybrid Solar / Wind Energy Technology
We view ourselves as a hybrid solar/wind technology, reflected in the name, Solar Wind Energy Tower, Inc. The simplicity of our solution is comprised of harnessing the natural power of a downdraft created within the confines of our Solar Wind Downdraft Tower structure, a hollow cylinder reaching skyward into the hot, dry atmosphere heated by the solar rays of the sun. The water introduced by the injection system near the top of the Tower evaporates and is absorbed by the hot, dry air. The air becomes cooler, denser and heavier than the outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and in excess of 50 mph and is diverted into wind tunnels surrounding the base of the Tower where turbines inside the tunnels power generators to produce electricity.
Abundant, Clean, Affordable Electricity Production
The Company has successfully managed to economize the Tower, reducing capital costs and improving projected financial performance. This development was made possible by utilizing our recently announced software which can calculate and predict energy production by our Solar Wind Downdraft Towers given local weather data. By feeding the weather data into the program, the Tower's height and diameter can be adjusted along with the amount of water added as fuel to create a desired amount of energy. The outcome dictates the optimum size of the Tower's height and width.
Under the most recent design specifications, the first San Luis Tower has a design capacity on an hourly basis, of up to 1,250 megawatt hours, gross. Due to lower capacities during winter days, the average hourly output per day for sale to the grid for the entire year is approximately 435 megawatt hours.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Statements included in this release may constitute "forward-looking statements". Actual results may differ materially from those projected in forward-looking statements. Such statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties such as competitive factors, technological development, market demand and the Company's ability to obtain new contracts and accurately estimate revenues, if any, due to variability in size, scope and duration of projects, and internal issues in the sponsoring client. Further information on potential factors that could affect the Company's financial results, can be found in the Company's various filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Gains 14.17% Following Note Authored by Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce; Cancer Immunotherapy Article, Introduction to Dr. Douglas Taylor

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - October 25, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors reports on trading for medical technology stock Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB :AEMD), closing at $0.1450, gaining $ 0.0180 or 14.17% as of the close Oct 24 th, on volume of 878,373 shares.

Yesterday the Company issued a note authored by Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce. The stock traded higher than normal volume and had a high of $0.1470.
Investorideas.com Newswire Excerpt:
Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an informative article on the emergence of cancer immunotherapies designed to augment the immune system's ability to recognize and combat malignant tumors. The oncology community is embracing this new treatment paradigm based on mounting clinical evidence that immunotherapies can produce long-term responses across multiple tumor types when combined with traditional therapies. As per the article, industry analysts project that immunotherapies could represent half of all cancer treatments within the next 10 years. The opportunity in lung cancer alone was referenced as a $6 billion opportunity.
At least five major drug companies are advancing candidates, including Bristol-Myers Squibb, whose drug Yervoy is already approved for melanoma. Drug mechanisms that inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway, which cancer cells hijack to evade destruction by the body's immune system, are a primary target in the emerging immunotherapy pipeline. The article also balanced the compelling promise of these candidates with the reality that PD-1 inhibitors and other immunotherapies face significant administration and cost hurdles. Much of the concern is associated with the challenge of stacking an immunotherapeutic drug on top of the toxicity of established therapies such as radiation, chemotherapy, targeted cancer agents or other PD-1 inhibitors. Beyond this challenge, the cost of combining such therapies could prove to be prohibitive considering that Yervoy alone costs $120,000 for four doses administered over 12 weeks.
From an Aethlon Medical perspective, the Wall Street Journal article serves to reinforce our vision that a medical device can deliver immunotherapeutic benefit to both established and candidate cancer therapies, and do so economically and without added drug toxicity.

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Note: Cancer Immunotherapy Article, Introduction to Dr. Douglas Taylor

SAN DIEGO - October 24, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an informative article on the emergence of cancer immunotherapies designed to augment the immune system's ability to recognize and combat malignant tumors.  The oncology community is embracing this new treatment paradigm based on mounting clinical evidence that immunotherapies can produce long-term responses across multiple tumor types when combined with traditional therapies.  As per the article, industry analysts project that immunotherapies could represent half of all cancer treatments within the next 10 years. The opportunity in lung cancer alone was referenced as a $6 billion opportunity. 
At least five major drug companies are advancing candidates, including Bristol-Myers Squibb, whose drug Yervoy is already approved for melanoma.  Drug mechanisms that inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway, which cancer cells hijack to evade destruction by the body's immune system, are a primary target in the emerging immunotherapy pipeline. The article also balanced the compelling promise of these candidates with the reality that PD-1 inhibitors and other immunotherapies face significant administration and cost hurdles. Much of the concern is associated with the challenge of stacking an immunotherapeutic drug on top of the toxicity of established therapies such as radiation, chemotherapy, targeted cancer agents or other PD-1 inhibitors.  Beyond this challenge, the cost of combining such therapies could prove to be prohibitive considering that Yervoy alone costs $120,000 for four doses administered over 12 weeks.
From an Aethlon Medical perspective, the Wall Street Journal article serves to reinforce our vision that a medical device can deliver immunotherapeutic benefit to both established and candidate cancer therapies, and do so economically and without added drug toxicity.
Our device strategy targets a survival mechanism deployed by tumors to evade and defeat the immune system of cancer patients.  This mechanism, which is not addressed by drug therapies, is the seretion of exosomes by cancerous tumors.  Researchers have discovered that tumors release these particles to trigger the death of cancer fighting immune cells and facilitate the spread of metastasis.  Additionally, the systemic elimination of exosomes may represent a novel strategy to inhibit the PD-1 molecular pathway.  To date, researchers have demonstrated that the Aethlon Hemopurifier® can capture exosomes underlying lymphoma, melanoma, ovarian, and breast cancer. If you are not familiar with the Hemopurifier®, it is a first-in-class medical device that targets the rapid elimination of life-threatening infectious viruses and tumor-secreted exosomes from circulation.  
Based on the recent approval (after 5+ years of effort) of an investigational device exemption (IDE) by FDA, we are preparing to initiate the first U.S. studies of Hemopurifier® therapy in Hepatitis-C (HCV) infected individuals. In studies previously conducted overseas, Hemopurifier® therapy was demonstrated to accelerate viral load depletion in hardest-to-treat HCV patients receiving standard-of-care drug therapy.
As a result of crossing the IDE approval threshold, we opened the door to advance relationships with medical institutes that have clinical interest in expanding Hemopurifier® indications to include various forms of cancer.
When we initiated our first cancer research activities, we were making two intuitive yet forward-looking bets.  The first was that exosomes would emerge to become a vital therapeutic target.  The second was a belief that novel immunotherapies would rethink the landscape for treating cancer.  Today, tumor-secreted exosomes are well-documented therapeutic targets and cancer immunotherapies are expected to take center stage in the cancer treatment arena. There is growing hope that the marriage of traditional cancer therapies with next-generation immunotherapies may someday allow cancer to become a manageable condition much like HIV-infection is managed through a cocktail of treatment mechanisms.  At Aethlon Medical, our role is to provide the oncology community with a therapeutic tool that counters the immunosuppressive impact of exosomes without adding drug toxicity to companion cancer therapies.  
In closing, I am providing the scientific viewpoint of Dr. Douglas Taylor on the potential implications of Hemopurifier® therapy in cancer care.  Dr. Taylor is credited with the discovery of tumor-secreted exosomes and is a leading published author on the topic.  He is also one of the newest members of the Aethlon family as he has accepted the position of Chief Scientific Officer at our Exosome Sciences diagnostic subsidiary. The following is a statement from Dr. Taylor:
Evidence indicates that molecules, such as programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) and CTLA-4, are exploited by tumors to suppress patient immune surveillance, allowing the progression of cancers. These molecules and their ligands negatively regulate anti-tumor immune responses, particularly CD8+ effector T cells. Treatment of activated T cells with anti-PD-L1 antibodies reduce T cell proliferation, which correlates with attenuated IL-2 secretion. In vitro cytotoxicity studies and in vivo growth inhibition can be restored utilizing anti-PD-L1 antibodies or by genetic silencing of PD-1.  The expression of PD-L1 on tumor cells inhibits anti-tumor immunity through engagement of PD-1 on effector T cells. Expression of PD-L1 on tumors is correlated with reduced survival in many tumor types.
Due to the role of these molecules in immune regulation and correlation with cancer outcomes, these pathways are being targeted for immunotherapy. Bristol Myers' experimental PD-1 inhibitor Nivolumab and Merck's candidate, MK-3475, block the PD-1/PD-L1 interaction, allowing the immune system to react with the tumor cells. Yervoy targets a similar checkpoint, inhibiting the CTLA-4 pathway. Unlike genetically targeted drugs, which disrupt mutations that fuel tumor growth, the new agents treat the immune system. Current interest in targeting these molecular pathways raises a concern that their normal function acts as to modulate the immune system to prevent attacks on healthy cells. Studies in murine models deficient for PD-1 developed dilated cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure and that expression of PD-1 may also prevent autoimmune diseases. Based on the critical role of PD-1 and CTLA-4, targeting their expression may be problematic resulting in serious side effects on the host. However, an essential component of the activity of such molecules may be due to their presence on exosomes released by tumor cells. We previously demonstrated the presence of these immunoregulatory molecules on tumor-derived exosomes and their ability to suppress T cell activation and proliferation ( Taylor et al. Clinical Cancer Research , 9: 5113-5119, 2003). Thus, a reasonable approach that does not result in systemic toxicity would be the removal of these immunoregulatory molecules. Consequently, the ability of the Hemopurifier® to remove these circulating exosomes may provide a superior approach to treat these patients without the generalized inhibition of the respective molecular pathways.

Mining Stock Alert: SilverCrest (TSX.V: SVL) (NYSE MKT: SVLC) Announces Positive La Joya Preliminary Economic Assessment Base Case Pre-Tax NPV(5%) of US$133 Million and 30% IRR for "Starter Pit"

Vancouver, British Columbia - October 21, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") for its La Joya Silver Copper Gold Project ("La Joya") located in Durango, Mexico. Summaries of the current resources used for the PEA, a preliminary Life of Mine Plan (LOMP), operating costs, capital costs and project economics are presented in tables below. A Technical Report compliant with NI 43-101 is being completed by EBA Engineering Consultants, a Tetra Tech Company (EBA) with an effective date of September 23, 2013 to be filed within 45 days of this release. All currency values are presented in US$ unless otherwise specified.

N. Eric Fier, President & COO stated, "The positive results of this PEA will enable us to plan the next steps, establish achievable milestones and identify additional studies and analyses to optimize the project economics. We have engaged extensively with local communities at this early stage of the La Joya project development, emphasizing the importance of building collaborative, long term and sustainable relationships with all stakeholders."
The PEA focuses on the first stage of La Joya development ("Starter Pit") as a low strip, open pit with an initial 9 year life of mine plan ("LOMP") and opportunities for expansion. This approach provides attractive economic returns using conservative metal price estimates and lower initial capital costs, which are more attractive in the current market. The conceptual open pit operation would be in conjunction with a 5,000 tonnes per day (tpd) conventional mill and flotation/leaching plant to produce a high grade silver-copper concentrate with gold credits. The Starter Pit will have a conceptual average annual production of 3.9 million silver equivalent (AgEQ)* ounces per year and approximately 5 million ounces AgEQ* per year for each of the first 4 years of operation. An expansion of the Starter Pit to include additional resources within a larger pit would then be contemplated.
The Company cautions that the PEA is preliminary in nature in that it is based on Inferred Mineral Resources which are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be characterized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PRELIMINARY ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT
The PEA incorporated Base Case metal prices of $22/oz Ag, $3/lb Cu and $1200/oz Au (5 year historical average). Highlights of the Base Case economic estimates for the Starter Pit are as follows:
  • Pre-tax NPV5% of $133 million and an Internal Rate of Return ("IRR") of 30.5%
  • Pre-tax NPV5% of $156 million and IRR of 34% using current metal prices of $21.93/oz Ag, $1316.25/oz Au and $3.27/lb Cu (as of 18/10/2013)
  • After-tax NPV5% of $93 million and an IRR of 22%
  • Payback period of approximately 2 years on initial capital
  • Pre- production capital costs of $141 million including contingencies of $17 million
  • Sustaining capital is estimated at $8 Million
  • Cash operating costs for the first three years average $10 per ounce AgEQ* and $13 per ounce AgEq* for the 9 years Starter Pit
  • Pre-tax undiscounted operating cash flow before capital expenditures totalling $342.5 million at an average of $38 million per year with the first four years averaging $60 million per year
  • A 9 year LOMP with 15.5M tonnes grading 50g/t Ag, 0.33%Cu and 0.19 g/t Au
  • Life of mine production of an estimated 34.8 million payable AgEQ*ounces, consisting of 19 million ounces of silver and 53 thousand ounces of gold and 93 million pounds of copper in concentrate, and
  • Production of an attractive high grade silver-copper concentrate (averaging 35% Cu and 4kg/t Ag) with a gold by- product.
* Silver equivalency for the PEA includes silver, gold and copper and excludes lead, zinc, molybdenum and tungsten values. The Price Ratio for Ag:oz Au is (54.4:1), lb Cu:oz Ag is (7.3:1), both based on 5 year historic metal price trends of US$22/oz silver, US$1200/oz gold, US$3/lbs. copper. Metallurgical recoveries are incorporated in the economic analysis (see Summary of PEA parameters in table below).
Investorideas.com Newswire * Silver equivalency for the PEA includes silver, gold and copper and excludes lead, zinc, molybdenum and tungsten values. Price ratio for Ag: Au is (54.4:1), Ag:Cu is (7.3:1), both based on 5 year historic metal price trends of US$22/oz silver, US$1200/oz gold, US$3/lbs. copper. Metallurgical recovery is incorporated as recoverable metal.
The PEA for the Starter Pit reports strong revenues in the initial four years of operations and a decrease in the revenues for subsequent two years due to decrease in the grades. It is anticipated that additional drilling and optimization of the mine schedule could improve these results based on the presence of high grade material in some sectors of the deposit which may ultimately be incorporated into the mine plan.
Sensitivity analyses were completed by adjusting commodity prices, the results of which are presented in the following graph.
To view the graph, please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/svl1021-Graph.pdf.
The Starter Pit economics are more sensitive to silver and copper price, as they represent 55% and 36% of the total revenues respectively under the base case scenario. Each 10% increment in metal prices from the base case changes the pre-tax NPV by approximately $60 million and the IRR by approximately 8%.
PEA CAPITAL COSTS
EBA completed detailed cost estimates for the mine and processing plant based on preliminary vendor quotes, contract mining and similar projects recently completed in Mexico. Pre-production capital costs are estimated to total US$141 million including a $17 million contingency using an open pit mine contractor. This includes development of the project over a period of 1.5 years including initial mining for one year before start-up of operations. The La Joya property has excellent infrastructure to keep capital costs reasonable with a nearby international airport, highways, railway, main power grid and lines, several operating mines and communities with available workforce. The pre-production capital costs from the PEA are summarized below.
Investorideas.com Newswire Provisions for $8 million of working capital and $6 million in mine closure have been made as part of the economic analyses in the PEA.
PEA STUDY PARAMETERS
The PEA has incorporated the following operational and economic parameters used in the Net Smelter Return Model ("NSR") for the silver-copper-gold concentrate and also gold-silver dore production model from tailings leaching.
Investorideas.com Newswire No smelter penalty charges for deleterious metals were applied to the concentrate for the PEA. The study assumes that silver copper concentrate will be shipped overseas by trucking from site to a port in Mexico which is the most used route for concentrate producers in operation near La Joya.
PROCESSING & METALLURGY
The most recent metallurgical studies indicate that a conventional flotation circuit will potentially recover a high grade silver copper concentrate with gold credits. Depending on mineralization style and conditioning applied on the ALS locked cycle flotation tests, preliminary metal recoveries to the third cleaner concentrates range from 82.7 to 86.7% Cu, 76.7 to 84.3% Ag, and 18.2 to 42.4% Au for Manto and Structure composites. A gold leaching circuit with potential to recover 90% of gold and silver from the tailings to produce metal dore has also been incorporated in the PEA.
Investorideas.com Newswire The bulk silver copper concentrates from preliminary results produced from Manto and Structure composites show certain potentially deleterious elements for smelting such as arsenic, antimony and bismuth. Adding cyanide at cleaner flotation stages reduces the arsenic content to acceptable market limits without sacrificing copper, silver and gold recoveries. Additional test work is in progress to assess the distribution, concentration and potential reduction of antimony and bismuth.
LA JOYA RESOURCES
The La Joya mineral deposit is defined as a silver copper-gold skarn with disseminated to semi-massive sulphide (bornite - chalcopyrite) with three main ore types; Mantos, Structures and Contact Zone. The updated Mineral Resource estimations for the La Joya Project provided estimated Inferred Resources of 126.7 million tonnes grading 23.5 gpt Ag, 0.19%Cu and 0.17 gpt Au containing 198.6 million ounces of silver, 533 million pounds of copper and 95,900 ounces of gold. These resource estimates were announced by news release dated January 29, 2013 and are contained in a technical report dated March 27, 2013 titled "Updated Resource Estimate for the La Joya Property, Durango, Mexico" and are the basis for the PEA.
Investorideas.com Newswire * Silver equivalency for the resource estimation filed on March 27th, 2013 includes silver, gold and copper and excludes lead, zinc, molybdenum and tungsten values. Ag:Au is 50:1, Ag:Cu is 86:1, based on 5 year historic metal price trends ofUS$24/oz silver, US$1200/oz gold, US$3/lb copper. 100% metallurgical recovery is assumed. Classified by EBA, a Tetra Tech Company and conforms to NI 43-101 and CIM definitions for resources. All numbers are rounded. Inferred Resources have been estimated from geological evidence and limited sampling and must be treated with a lower level of confidence than Measured and Indicated Resources. Note that AgEQ calculation for resources is different than PEA economic analysis based on change in metal prices. Mineralization boundaries used in the interpretation of the geological model and resource estimate are based on a cut-off grade of 15 g/t AgEq using the metal price ratios described above.
The conceptual first stage for development of La Joya with an initial 9 year Starter Pit uses the 60g/t Ag Eq cut off Inferred Resource for Manto and Structure Zones representing mineralized zones close to the surface. The PEA conceptual open pit and economic analysis excludes the Contact Zone, Santo Nino and Cerro Coloradito resources which are included in the above table.
The Contact Zone resources, not incorporated in the PEA, contains consistent Tungsten mineralization which is currently the subject of additional studies aimed at definition of preliminary economic parameters to be integrated in future assessment of the La Joya Project.
PEA POTENTIAL PRODUCTION
The Whittle Pit analysis examined the NPV of 41 potential pits utilizing a 5,000 tpd operational capacity. The optimum pit is #31 with the highest NPV(see Table below) producing a 15.8 years LOMP, but it did not meet the criteria established for a Starter Pit with low strip ratio (less than 3:1) and reasonable capital costs. On this basis the selected pit for mine design & scheduling was Pit # 18.
Investorideas.com Newswire * 41 Optimized pit shells have been generated by keeping the parameters used for the Whittle optimization constant (Operating Costs, Metallurgical Recoveries, Pit Slope Angles and Discount Factor) and by varying the Revenue using a range of metal prices illustrated in the table above.
The optimal mine scheduling incorporates, mining ore and waste in the year-1 grade optimization and stockpiling of material for reprocessing during the project life. is The production scheduling (Mill Feed Tonnes & grades) is illustrated as follows:
Investorideas.com Newswire The 5,000 tpd processing plant will be comprised of crushing, milling and standard flotation facilities with production of a silver-copper concentrate as well as a gold-silver leaching circuit for re-treatment of tailings. The PEA adopted as a guideline a mitigation of environmental and social impact by minimizing the footprint of all proposed operational facilities in the region.
PEA OPPORTUNITIES AND FUTURE STUDIES
Several opportunities are identified that could significantly enhance the economic return outlined in the PEA, including the following:
  • The current Inferred Resources at La Joya provide opportunity for significant project expansion,
  • Mineralization at La Joya is open in most directions with excellent potential to further increased resources. Further infill and expansion drilling is recommended to reclassify resources at a Pre-Feasibility Study level,
  • Additional and detailed metallurgical test work will be completed aiming to optimize the metallurgical flow sheet and potentially improve metal recoveries,
  • Review and optimization of the mining schedule could potentially provide opportunities for reduction in waste and haulage costs which could decrease capital and operating mining costs,
  • This PEA does not address the potential for recovery of several other identified potential products including tungsten, molybdenum, lead, zinc, and tin which may have significant value. Further work is recommended, and
  • Several other targets have been identified on the plus 10,000 hectare concession that remain to be explored for potential new discoveries.

Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: risks related to precious and base metal price fluctuations; risks related to fluctuations in the currency markets (particularly the Mexican peso, Canadian dollar and United States dollar); risks related to the inherently dangerous activity of mining, including conditions or events beyond our control, and operating or technical difficulties in mineral exploration, development and mining activities; uncertainty in the Company's ability to raise financing and fund the exploration and development of its mineral properties; uncertainty as to actual capital costs, operating costs, production and economic returns, and uncertainty that development activities will result in profitable mining operations; risks related to reserves and mineral resource figures being estimates based on interpretations and assumptions which may result in less mineral production under actual conditions than is currently estimated and to diminishing quantities or grades of mineral reserves as properties are mined; risks related to governmental regulations and obtaining necessary licenses and permits; risks related to the business being subject to environmental laws and regulations which may increase costs of doing business and restrict our operations; risks related to mineral properties being subject to prior unregistered agreements, transfers, or claims and other defects in title; risks relating to inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance; risks related to potential litigation; risks related to the global economy; risks related to the Company's status as a foreign private issuer in the United States; risks related to all of the Company's properties being located in Mexico and El Salvador, including political, economic, social and regulatory instability; and risks related to officers and directors becoming associated with other natural resource companies which may give rise to conflicts of interests. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. The Company's forward-looking statements are based on beliefs, expectations and opinions of management on the date the statements are made. For the reasons set forth above, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements as to matters that are not of historic fact are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on HII's current expectations, estimates and projections about HII, its industry, its management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, and include statements regarding estimated capital expenditures, future operational and activity expectations, international growth, and anticipated financial performance in 2013. No assurance can be given that such expectations, estimates or projections will prove to have been correct. Whenever possible, these "forward-looking statements" are identified by words such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates" and similar phrases.
Readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict, including, but not limited to: risks that HII will be unable to achieve its financial, capital expenditure and operational projections, including quarterly and annual projections of revenue and/or operating income and risks that HII's expectations regarding future activity levels, customer demand, and pricing stability may not materialize (whether for HII as a whole or for geographic regions and/or business segments individually); risks that fundamentals in the U.S. oil and gas markets may not yield anticipated future growth in HII's businesses, or could further deteriorate or worsen from the recent market declines, and/or that HII could experience further unexpected declines in activity and demand for its hydraulic frac related water transfer business, its safety consultancy business or its generator and related equipment rental service businesses; risks relating to HII's ability to implement technological developments and enhancements; risks relating to compliance with environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, as well as actions by governmental and regulatory authorities; risks that HII may be unable to achieve the benefits expected from acquisition and disposition transactions, and risks associated with integration of the acquired operations into HII's operations; risks, in responding to changing or declining market conditions, that HII may not be able to reduce, and could even experience increases in, the costs of labor, fuel, equipment and supplies employed and used in HII's businesses; risks relating to changes in the demand for or the price of oil and natural gas; risks that HII may not be able to execute its capital expenditure program and/or that any such capital expenditure investments, if made, will not generate adequate returns; and other risks affecting HII's ability to maintain or improve operations, including its ability to maintain prices for services under market pricing pressures, weather risks, and the impact of potential increases in general and administrative expenses.
Because such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of HII's control, HII's actual results and performance may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Other important risk factors that may affect HII's business, results of operations and financial position are discussed in its most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K and in other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Unless otherwise required by law, HII also disclaims any obligation to update its view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made here. However, readers should review carefully reports and documents that HII files periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
