The Company issued 3,447,000 common shares at a price of $0.09 per common share, raising aggregate gross proceeds of $310,230. Certain insiders of the Company acquired common shares under the Private Placement.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to purchase plant and equipment to vertically integrate and expand the Company's manufacturing of paper products.
Mario Grech acquired 2,225,000 common shares under the Private Placement.

Mr. Grech acquired his common shares under the Private Placement for investment purposes and may increase or decrease his ownership of securities of the Company from time to time.
