Related Party Transaction
In connection with the Offering, certain directors, officers and other insiders of the Company (collectively, the “Insiders”) have acquired 3,500,000 Common Shares. The participation of Insiders in the Offering constitutes a “related party transaction”, as such terms are defined by Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”).
