Debentures, units and shares issued pursuant to the exercise of the warrants will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of issuance of the debentures in accordance with applicable securities laws and, if required, the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The company may repay all or a portion of the indebtedness owing under the debentures at any time and without penalty, subject to the Company providing the debenture holders with fourteen days' prior written notice. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement for general working capital purposes.

The Private Placement is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Private Placement has received approval from the Board of Directors of the Company.
