On May 13, 2014, DirectCash announced that it had entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") to acquire DirectCash Bank (the "Bank") through the acquisition of all the outstanding shares of the Bank's sole shareholder, 6676405 Canada Limited ("6676405"), for consideration of $15 million payable in the form of Common Shares issued from treasury at a price of $13.9148 per share, which is equal to the 20 day volume-weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange as of the close of business on May 12, 2014 (the "Transaction"). Accordingly, upon closing, DirectCash will issue 1,077,989 Common Shares to the shareholders of 6676405, subject to adjustment on account of a minimum net asset value of the Bank as at closing in accordance with the terms of the Agreement (an "Adjustment"). 6676405 is 50% indirectly owned by Jeffrey J.

Upon closing of the Transaction and subject to any Adjustment as described above, Mr. Smith will have beneficial ownership of 2,601,936 Common Shares, representing approximately 13.9% of the Common Shares outstanding after giving effect to the Transaction.
Mr. Smith's securityholdings in DirectCash are held for investment purposes. Mr. Smith may in the future take such actions in respect of his securityholdings in DirectCash as he may deem appropriate in light of the circumstances then existing, including the purchase of additional securities of DirectCash through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, or the sale of all or a portion of his holdings in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions to one or more purchasers.
