The Transaction was approved by written consent of the holders of more than 50% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company held by disinterested shareholders.

Final approval of the Transaction and the listing of the combined entity remains subject to a receipt by the TSX-V of satisfactory final documentation in respect of the Transaction and the issuance of the Final Exchange Bulletin.
