United States Shareholders
The Transaction relates to common shares of a Canadian company. U.S. shareholders should be aware that the Transaction is subject to the disclosure requirements of Canada, which are different from those of the United States. The financial statements included or incorporated by reference in documents relating to the Transaction have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, and may be subject to Canadian auditing and auditor independence standards, and thus may not be comparable to financial statements of United States companies.
The enforcement by shareholders of civil liabilities under the United States federal securities laws may be affected adversely by the fact that Silvore Fox is incorporated under the laws of Alberta and Golden Share is incorporated under the federal laws of Canada, most of their respective officers and directors are residents of Canada and other foreign countries, and some or all of their respective assets and the assets of their respective officers and directors are located outside the United States. U.S. shareholders may not be able to sue a Canadian company or its officers and directors in a Canadian or other foreign court for violations of U.S. securities laws, and it may be difficult to compel a Canadian company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.
