(together the “Agents”), acted as agents for the Offering.

Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share of the Company at a price of $0.075 for a period of 36 months following closing of the Offering.
The Common Shares, Warrants and Broker Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering, and any Common Shares issued upon the exercise of Warrants or Broker Warrants, are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring February 9, 2020.
