Some factors that could cause actual results to differ include: (i) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could delay the Business Combination or the private placement or give rise to the termination of the Business Combination Agreement by and between KLRE and Tema, dated as of December 20, 2016 (the “Business Combination Agreement”); (ii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against KLRE following announcement of the Business Combination and transactions contemplated thereby; (iii) the inability to complete the Business Combination due to the failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of KLRE, or other conditions to closing in the Business Combination Agreement; (iv) the risk that the Business Combination disrupts current plans and operations of KLRE or Tema as a result of the announcement and consummation of the transactions described herein; (v) KLRE’s ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Business Combination, which may be affected by, among other things, competition and the ability of KLRE to grow and manage growth profitably following the Business Combination; (vi) costs related to the Business Combination; (vii) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (viii) the possibility that KLRE or Tema may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors, including, but not limited to, future trends in energy markets and commodity prices; and (ix) other risks and uncertainties described herein, as well as those risks and uncertainties discussed from time to time in other reports and other public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by KLRE.
