Forward-Looking Statements Disclosure

Certain statements in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, without limitation, statements regarding our efforts to explore strategic alternatives. Forward-looking statements include all passages containing words such as "aims," "anticipates," "becoming," "believes," "continue," "estimates," "expects," "future," "intends," "plans," "predicts," "projects," "targets," or "upcoming". Forward-looking statements also include any other passages that are primarily relevant to expected future events or that can only be evaluated by events that will occur in the future. Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of the management at the time the statements are made and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could affect Jones Soda's actual results include, among others, its inability to achieve levels of revenue and cost reductions that are adequate to support its capital and operating requirements in order to continue as a going concern; its inability to generate sufficient cash flow from operations, or to obtain funds through additional financing or other strategic alternatives, to support its business plan; the impact of the global economic crisis, which has continued to have a greater than expected impact on the Company's business; its inability to increase points of distribution for its products or to successfully innovate new products and product extensions; its inability to establish distribution arrangements with distributors, retailers or national retail accounts; its inability to maintain relationships with its co-packers; its inability to maintain a consistent and cost-effective supply of raw materials; its inability to receive returns on its trade spending and slotting fee expenditures; its inability to maintain brand image and product quality; its inability to protect its intellectual property; the impact of current and future litigation; and its inability to develop new products to satisfy customer preferences and the impact of intense competition from other beverage suppliers. More information about factors that potentially could affect Jones Soda's financial results is included in Jones Soda's most recent annual report on Form 10-K and in the Company’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2010. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon these forward-looking statements that speak only as to the date of this release. Except as required by law, Jones Soda undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking or other statements in this press release, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
