The Company has completed the first tranche (“First Tranche”) of the Offering issuing 1,709,999 Units raising gross proceeds of $341,999.80. Proceeds raised from the Offering will be used for marketing, product development and general operating expenses.

Pursuant to the closing of the First Tranche, certain eligible persons (the “Finders”) were paid a cash commission equal to 8% of the proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finder and also issued an aggregate of 116,799 warrants (the “Finder Warrants”) to Finders, each Finder Warrant entitling the holder to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.20 for a period of one year from the date of issuance.

The securities issued upon closing of the First Tranche are subject to a hold period until September 21, 2016, pursuant to applicable securities laws. In connection with the Offering, a subscriber (the “Subscriber”) entered into share loan and pledge agreements with certain of the Company’s existing shareholders (the “Lenders”), pursuant to which the Lenders loaned to the Subscriber an aggregate of 1,429,999 Common Shares without resale restriction. As collateral, the Subscriber pledged to the Lenders an equal number of Common Shares purchased pursuant to the closing of the First Tranche.

A director of the Company participated in the First Tranche, which constitutes a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101“). Such related party transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of securities being issued to the related party nor the consideration being paid by the related party exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The participants in the First Tranche and the extent of such participation were not finalized until shortly prior to the completion of the First Tranche. Accordingly, it was not possible to publicly disclose details of the nature and extent of related party participation in the First Tranche pursuant to a material change report filed at least 21 days prior to the completion of the First Tranche.
