The private placement is exempt from the formal valuation approval requirements of MI 61-101 and exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as at the time the private placement was announced and closed, neither the fair market value of the private placement, nor the fair market value of the consideration for the private placement, in the aggregate or insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeded 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement because the closing date of the private placement had not yet been determined and the Company deems such timeline reasonable in the circumstances to as to be able to avail itself of the proceeds of the private placement in an expeditious manner.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
