The Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units issued as part of the first tranche of the Offering, as well as any Common Shares issued upon exercise of Warrants, will be subject to a four-month hold period which will expire on September 14, 2016.

The Finder's Warrants and the Common Shares and Warrants comprising any Units issued upon exercise of Finder's Warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period which will expire on September 14, 2016.
