The options were granted at an exercise price of $0.60 Cdn. per share and, under the terms of the November 27, 2006 Stock Option Plan, have a term of five years and are subject to a two year vesting schedule with 25% of the options vesting immediately, a further 25% vesting on February 16, 2008, a further 25% vesting on August 16, 2008 and the final 25% vesting on February 16, 2009.

"These options are the first options granted to directors and officers since May 2004, other than grants to attract new directors and officers to our Company," said Anthony De Werth, Parlay's Chairman. "Our compensation approach for both directors and officers is intended to include a grant of stock options. We believe that the granting of stock options is an appropriate method of providing long-term incentives to both directors and senior executives of the Company and, in general, aligns the interests of the executives with those of the shareholders."
