Mr. Gagné Mr. Dougherty and Mr. Sheldon have no present intention of acquiring additional securities of MetalCorp (other than with respect to the proposed acquisition of 729,500 Common Shares by Pierre Gagné Contracting Ltd. conditional on approval by disinterested shareholders of the Issuer which is being sought at a shareholders meeting currently scheduled to be held on December 8, 2020). Depending upon their evaluation of the business, prospects and financial condition of the Issuer, the market for the Issuer’s securities, general economic and tax conditions and other factors, any of them or entities controlled by them may acquire more or sell some or all of their MetalCorp securities.

The shares-for-debt transactions were entered into for the purpose of assisting MetalCorp in reducing its debts and liabilities at a time when it did not have the cash or other resources to pay such debts and liabilities and thereby assist MetalCorp in reducing its working capital deficiency and enabling it to use its limited cash and other financial resources for ongoing operations and other obligations.

MetalCorp relied on the prospectus exemption provided in the National Instrument 45-106, section 2.14 – Securities for Debt in respect of its issuance of the Common Shares.
