The Lender is an affiliate of a director of the Company (Reg Christian). The Lender’s participation in the Loan is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The related party transaction is exempt from minority approval, information circular and formal valuation requirements pursuant to the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the consideration to be issued under the transaction nor the consideration to be paid by the insiders will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
