Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by use of the words "believes," "may," "plans," "will," "anticipates," "intends," "budgets," "could," "estimates," "expects," "forecasts," "projects," and similar expressions, and the negative of such expressions. Forward-looking statements in this news release include statements about the nature and prospects of the complaint filed by Tekmira against Alnylam and AlCana in the Massachusetts Superior Court; the trial date of November 14, 2012 in Tekmira's litigation with Alnylam and AlCana in the Massachusetts Superior Court; the pre-trial scheduling events and timeline for the remaining pre-trial events leading up to the trial date; the nature and prospects of the civil complaint filed against certain individuals from AlCana in the Supreme Court of British Columbia; and Tekmira's strategy, future operations, clinical trials, prospects and the plans of management; RNAi (ribonucleic acid interference) product development programs.

With respect to the forward-looking statements contained in this news release, Tekmira has made numerous assumptions regarding, among other things: the nature and prospects of the litigation with Alnylam and AlCana filed in the Massachusetts Superior Court; the nature and scope of the civil complaint filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against certain individuals from AlCana; costs and timing – including the trial date of November 14, 2012 – of the litigation with Alnylam and AlCana, and the effects of such on Tekmira's financial position and execution of Tekmira's business strategy; LNP's status as a leading RNAi delivery technology; and Tekmira's ability to protect its intellectual property rights and not to infringe on the intellectual property rights of others. While Tekmira considers these assumptions to be reasonable, these assumptions are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, market and social uncertainties and contingencies.
