The shareholder rights plan (the "Plan") was adopted to encourage a fair treatment of its shareholders, should a take-over bid be made for the common shares of EFT Canada. The Plan will provide the Board and the shareholders, more time to consider an unsolicited take-over bid for EFT Canada. The Plan is intended to discourage coercive or unfair take-over bids and gives the Board time to pursue alternatives to maximize shareholder's value, if appropriate, in the event of an unsolicited take-over bid.

The Plan has not been adopted in response to, or in contemplation of, any specific proposal to acquire control of the Corporation. The Plan is effective since its approval by the shareholders at the Corporation's annual meeting of shareholders held on March 30, 2015.

The Plan, which is subject to the TSX Venture Exchange's final approval, is similar to other shareholder rights plan recently adopted by several other public companies and approved by their respective shareholders. A complete copy of the Plan is available under EFT Canada's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
