AZ Limos LLC - On September 21, 2007, C2 invested $400,000, representing a 16% ownership interest, in AZ Limos LLC. AZ Limos was incorporated in July 2007 to acquire the assets and operations of Limos.com (www.limos.com), a private company with an established reputation as a leading provider of Internet initiated leads for licensed limousine operators.

An additional $0.2 million was raised from investors by AZ Limos for working capital purposes.

Knight's Bridge Capital Corporation ("KBC"), a 50% owned affiliate of Counsel Corporation ("Counsel"), C2's majority stockholder, will earn a 2% per annum management fee, based on the invested capital of AZ Limos, in return for directing AZ Limos' strategic operations, and KBC will hold two of the four seats on AZ Limos' Board of Directors. Certain third party investors have a 20% carried interest in AZ Limos, which shall be payable after all investors have received an annual 10% preferred return on their capital from earnings generated by AZ Limos as well as the return in full of their invested capital.

Buddy Media, Inc. - On September 12, 2007, C2 invested $100,000 in convertible Series A Preferred Stock of Buddy Media, Inc.

"We believe that on-line Internet-based businesses such as Limos.com present major growth opportunities as consumers increasingly turn to the Internet to provide goods and services, allowing such businesses to generate substantial fees and on-line advertising revenues."
