The Arrangement and the Name Change are more particularly described in the notice and management information circular prepared in connection with the Arrangement, copies of which were mailed to shareholders and are available electronically at

At the Special Meeting, the Arapaho shareholders approved the Arrangement and the Name Change.

Completion of the Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions, including TSX Venture Exchange acceptance and shareholder approval. There can be no assurance that the Arrangement will be completed as proposed or at all and no assurance that, even if the Arrangement is completed, the Share Purchase will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular prepared in connection with the Arrangement, any information released or received with respect to the Arrangement may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of Arapaho should be considered highly speculative.
