Participation of such insiders in the Offering constituted a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holdings in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”), but was exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirement of MI 61-101 pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the insiders’ participation in the Offering does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company. The Company did not file a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering as the details of the participation of the insiders of the Company had not been confirmed at that time. The Offering has been unanimously approved by the board of directors of the Company, with each of the participating insiders abstaining from voting on their respective participation in the Offering. The common shares issued to insiders of the Company are subject to a four-month hold period pursuant to applicable policies of the TSX-V.
