In other news, the company also announces it has issued 203,681 common shares to the Company's CEO, as partial payment of his salary, per the terms of his employment agreement.

In February 2016, our CEO, General Heinz, entered into a share-based compensation agreement with IBC, subject to conditional acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") which was granted on August 4, 2016. Under this agreement, General Heinz receives the following compensation: 1) from January to July 2016, sufficient cash compensation to cover necessary payroll withholdings with the balance paid in common shares of IBC, and 2) from July 2016 to January 2017, sufficient cash to cover necessary payroll withholdings and cash compensation of $6,000 paid monthly, with the balance paid in common shares of IBC. The issuance of shares is based on the closing price for IBC's common shares on the TSXV on the last trading day of the month. Any extension of the arrangement beyond one year would be subject to the Company obtaining disinterested shareholder approval.

The Company has just issued 203,681 common shares to General Heinz as partial compensation in the amount of $125,748 for the period February 18, 2016 to August 31, 2016. The shares were issued at prices between $0.58 and $0.64 (average price of $0.62) based on the discounted market price in effect on May 26, 2016 (for compensation from February 18, 2016 to April 30, 2016), May 31, 2016, June 30, 2016, July 29, 2016 and August 31, 2016. These common shares are subject to four-month and one day hold period.

General Heinz holds 0.97% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. The issuance of common shares to General Heinz pursuant to the Agreement constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101") and TSXV Policy 5.9 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, on the basis that the fair market value of the transaction does not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
