The Resort Companies have identified and acquired certain lands and will use the proceeds from the loan for working capital purposes to move their plans forward and meet ongoing project capital requirements.

"360 VOX is pleased to announce our relationship with Dalmi in participating in the planning and execution of these recreational communities. Croatia offers unique historical, cultural and natural assets in one of the fastest growing markets in Europe. Croatia's possible future entry into the European Union points to a broader opening of these destinations. We look forward to expanding our base of operations in Europe and in pursuing the successful development of these marina village communities on the Adriatic Coast", said Mr. Robin Conners, President and CEO of 360 VOX.

"We look forward to working with the 360 VOX team in realizing our Croatian developments. These are large scale development projects that will provide important infrastructure that Croatia requires to build a sustainable tourism industry for its future growth. These fully integrated recreational projects have an estimated $1.0 billion value at full build-out. 360 VOX brings expertise, the ability to execute and best-in-class operating experience. We are delighted to have concluded this agreement with 360 VOX based on our shared vision for these resort developments", said Mr. Srecko Bobeta, President of Dalmi.

Pursuant to the terms of the loan agreements, 360 VOX has agreed to lend the Canadian dollar equivalent of €465,960 at Canadian prime plus 4% to the Resort Companies subject to satisfaction of customary funding conditions. The loans are secured by Dalmi with a pledge of its assets and limited recourse guarantees from the shareholders of Dalmi, who have pledged their shares.

In connection with entering into the loan agreements, the Resort Companies and their subsidiaries, and Dalmi and its shareholders, have agreed to provide 360 VOX access to information on the Resort Companies and their subsidiaries, assets and business and to exclusivity covenants in favour of 360 VOX, including covenants not to solicit or provide information to any other person and to terminate any ongoing discussions with respect to any possible acquisition or strategic partnership involving the Resort Companies or their subsidiaries. The loan agreements include customary covenants and representations and warranties on the part of the Resort Companies.

The loans together with interest are repayable 90 days following notice from 360 VOX to the relevant borrower that it has determined not to proceed with any further investment in the Resort Companies and may be repaid in full or in part at any time by the borrower. Outstanding amounts on the loans will be converted into equity in the Resort Companies in the event 360 VOX makes any further investment in the Resort Companies, on such terms as may be agreed between 360 VOX and the Resort Companies in connection with any such investment.
