The Offering is subject to normal regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange of the listing of the Shares, and will be offered in each of the provinces of Canada other than the province of Quebec by way of a short form prospectus.
The Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and accordingly will not be offered, sold or delivered, directly or indirectly within the United States, its possessions and other areas subject to its jurisdiction or to, or for the account or for the benefit of a U.S. person, except pursuant to applicable exemptions from the registration requirements.
