Plan of Arrangement
The proposed Plan of Arrangement is subject to final approval by the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta (the “Final Order”) and meeting the minimum listing requirements to have the preferred shares listed. The hearing to seek the Final Order approving the Plan of Arrangement has been set for July 5, 2017.

There are currently 58,662,892 common shares of the Corporation outstanding. Subsequent to the completion of the proposed Plan of Arrangement, there will be 43,934,032 common shares outstanding after 67,667 common shares held by odd lot shareholders are redeemed for $0.155 each in cash and 14,661,193 shares are exchanged for a total of 1,136,242 preferred shares.

Anyone trading in the shares of the Corporation are warned that upon completion of the proposed Plan of Arrangement, any common shares they acquire now until the completion of the Plan of Arrangement are subject to an automatic exchange of the common shares they acquire into preferred shares of the Corporation pursuant to the Plan of Arrangement.

Private Placement
Concurrent with the proposed Plan of Arrangement, the Corporation is pursuing a private placement of preferred shares for a maximum of $5 million. The board of directors of the Corporation has determined that it is in the best interests of the Corporation to reduce the minimum private placement from $3 million as originally contemplated to $2 million. The private placement is expected to close shortly after the completion of the Plan of Arrangement, on or about July 5, 2017. The board of directors of the Corporation have committed $770,000 to the private placement.
