Existing Shareholders

Depending on demand and applicable regulatory requirements, up to $500,000 of the Offering may be made available to all Shareholders, pursuant to the existing shareholder exemption (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption") contained in Multilateral CSA Notice 45-313 - Prospectus Exemption for Distributions to Existing Security Holders and the various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions (the Existing Shareholder Exemption is not available in Ontario or Newfoundland and Labrador).

The aggregate investment of a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption in the Company in a 12-month period cannot exceed $15,000, unless that subscriber has obtained advice obtained from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment. The Company will accept qualifying subscriptions of $500 or larger.

Unless the Company determines to increase the gross proceeds of the Offering and receives TSXV approval for such increase, if subscriptions by existing Shareholders based on all available exemptions exceed the amount of $500,000, Common Shares representing in the aggregate $500,000 will be allocated pro rata (based on originally requested subscription amounts) among all existing Shareholders qualifying under all available exemptions The Offering is subject to the Minimum Offering amount.

A finder's payment payable in cash or Common Shares equal to 5% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Common Shares sold to the committed subscriber may be paid in connection with the Minimum Offering.

Closing of the Offering is expected to take place on or about December 1, 2014.
