These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, CGEI's expectations with respect to the combined company's plans, objectives, expectations and intentions with respect to future operations; approval and adoption of business combination by the requisite number of shareholders; and the timing of the completion of the proposed business combination. All forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements, many of which are generally outside the control of CGEI's and are difficult to predict. Examples of such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure of the business combination to close for any reason; (ii) general business and economic conditions; (iii) the performance of financial markets; (iv) risks relating to the consummation of the contemplated business combination, including the risk that required shareholder approval and regulatory agencies might not be obtained in a timely manner or at all or that other closing conditions are not satisfied; (v) the impact of the business combination on the markets for the combined company's products and services; (vi) the employees of CGEI, CDGC and Pingtan Fishing not being combined and integrated successfully; (vii) operating costs and business disruption following the business combination, including adverse effects on employee retention and on CGEI's, CDGC's and Pingtan Fishing's business relationships with third parties; (viii) the inability of the combined company following the closing of the business combination to meet NASDAQ's listing requirements and the failure of the combined company's securities to be listed or continue to be listed on NASDAQ; (ix) the amount of cash available to the combined company following the business combination being insufficient to allow CGEI, CDGC, Pingtan Fishing or the combined company to achieve their business goals; and (xi) the future performance of the combined company following the closing of the business combination. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements can be found in the most recent annual report on Form 10-K, and the subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K filed by CGEI with the SEC, as well as the proxy statement when it becomes available.

CGEI assumes no obligation, and they specifically disclaim any intention or obligation, to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
