Each Financing Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share for $2.40 for the period commencing on the date of issuance and ending on March 31, 2016.

Upon closing the second tranche of the Offering, the Agents (as defined below) were paid a cash commission of approximately $311,000 and were issued an aggregate of 248,938 compensation warrants (the "Compensation Warrants"), in accordance with the terms of an agency agreement entered into between the Company and Haywood Securities Inc., Cormark Securities Inc., National Bank Financial Inc. and Leede Financial Markets Inc.
