The Company issued 43,000,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit, each Unit consisting of one common share of the Company (a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant (a “Warrant”) entitling the holder to purchase common share of the Company (a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $0.075 per Warrant Share for a period of two years. The Company plans to use the proceeds of the Private Placement to retire existing debt and for general working capital purposes. All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four month hold period expiring on October 1, 2016.

At the annual general meeting of the Company held on May 31, 2016, the disinterested shareholders of the Company passed an ordinary resolution approving the issuance of common shares of the Company to Gagan Goel or Essel Group on the exercise of share purchase warrants held by either of them in such circumstance where Mr. Goel and Essel Group will collectively hold 20% or more of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company as a result of such exercise and thereby result in a change of control under TSX Venture Exchange policies. The Company relied upon exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 contained in section 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b), respectively, with respect to the issuance of the Units to the Insiders.
