Financing Update

The Company intends to complete a financing of approximately $2 million on a private placement by selling approximately 7.5 million Units at $0.27 per Unit. The financing is fully subscribed for. The private placement is conditional upon a requisite number of holders of outstanding convertible debentures, of which approximately $2.9 million are outstanding, approving the extension of the maturity date of the debentures from December 31, 2016 until June 30, 2018 and a reduction of the conversion price from $0.35 to $0.27 per share. As of today’s date, 86% of the holders have approved this extension and we expect to have requisite 90% by the closing of the financing which is scheduled for Tuesday May 24, 2016.
