The Company has entered into an amending agreement with Raymond James Ltd., as a lead underwriter on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters (the "Underwriters") to sell to the Underwriters, on a bought deal private placement basis, 2,800,000 units of the Company (The "Units") at a price of CDN $2.15 per Unit (the "Issue Price") for total gross proceeds of CDN $6,020,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") for a period of two years following the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of CDN $2.70 per Warrant Share, subject to adjustment in certain events.

The Company has also granted the Underwriters the option (the "Underwriters' Option"), exercisable in whole or in part up to 48 hours prior to closing of the Offering, to purchase up to 420,000 additional Units of the Company at the Issue Price per Unit for additional gross proceeds of up to $903,000.
