Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at $8.50 for a period of two years from the closing date. The pricing of the warrant was increased with respect to the initially disclosed price of $6.25, and the exercise period was reduced from three years to two years (see October 20, 2006 press release).

The securities issued under this private placement are subject to an eighteen month hold period expiring May 27, 2008.
