All units were subscribed by Mr. Fedosiewich. His participation constitutes a “related party transaction” as defined under National Instrument 61- 101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“NI 61-101”). However, such participation is exempt from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of NI 61-101 based on the fact that neither the fair market value of the private placement, nor the consideration paid by Mr. Fedosiewich, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report at least 21 days prior to the closing of the private placement as Mr. Fedosiewich was not an insider at the time of the negotiations of the private placement.
The private placement remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
