MI 61-101 Disclosure
Certain insiders of the company participated in the first tranche of the offering for an aggregate total of $1,800,000 in notes. The participation by such insiders is considered a “related-party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions.
The company has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b), respectively, of MI 61-101, as no securities of the company are listed or quoted on the Toronto Stock Exchange, Aequitas NEO Exchange Inc., the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ Stock Market, or a stock exchange outside of Canada and neither the fair market value of the notes to be acquired by the participating directors and officers nor the consideration to be paid by such directors and officers is exceeds $2,500,000.
The company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the offering as the details of the participation therein by related parties of the company were not settled until shortly prior to closing of the first tranche of the offering and the company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
