The Company was delinquent in filing its interim financial statements and interim management discussion and analysis for the period ending February 28, 2011. The Company underwent a transition of its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) during the second quarter of 2011. In addition, the new CFO underwent a family emergency which caused a delay in the release of the Company's interim financial statements. As a result, the Company's shares were suspended from trading. The Company takes its financial reporting obligations seriously and believes this will not occur again. The Company has made application to have the Company's shares resume trading.
