After giving effect to the foregoing acquisition, ZG has ownership of and/or exercises control or direction over, directly or indirectly through Shaman III, LLC ("Shaman"), ZG II, LLC ("ZG II") and Zolt-Gilburne 2012 Family Trust ("ZG Trust"): (i) 53,768 warrants, each of which may be exercised for either one Voting Common Share or one Restricted Voting Common Share (as determined by the board of directors of Cricket Media) at a price of US$12.375 per share as to 50,989 warrants and at a price of US$121.75 per share as to 2,779 warrants; (ii) convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of C$3,750,000, which debentures are convertible into Voting Common Shares at a price of C$10.00 per share; (iii) 272,129 Voting Common Shares representing approximately 5.6% of the outstanding Voting Common Shares (approximately 1.2% of the outstanding Common Shares); and (iv) 13,501,619 Restricted Voting Common Shares representing approximately 75.3% of the outstanding Restricted Voting Common Shares (approximately 59.3% of the outstanding Common Shares).

If all of the warrants held by ZG (directly and through Shaman) were exercised for Restricted Voting Common Shares, ZG would own or control a total of 13,555,387 Restricted Voting Common Shares, representing approximately 75.4% of the then outstanding Restricted Voting Common Shares.

If all of the Restricted Voting Common Shares, convertible debentures and warrants held by ZG, Shaman, ZG II and ZG Trust described above were converted into or exercised for Voting Common Shares, ZG and its affiliates would own or control a total of 14,202,516 Voting Common Shares representing approximately 75.7% of the then outstanding Voting Common Shares (approximately 61.2% of the then outstanding Common Shares), calculated on a partially diluted basis and assuming no other increases in the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares.

The Restricted Voting Common Shares acquired by ZG were issued at a deemed price of C$0.70 per share as consideration for the assignment by ZG to Cricket Media of the outstanding debt owed to ZG by Cricket Media, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cricket Media, in the aggregate amount of US$1,500,000 (CDN$1,645,650).
