The shares are subject to a four-month and one day hold period ending on June 29, 2020.
The shares for debt transactions with certain of the Creditors may be considered a related party transaction for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), which is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 due to the Company not being listed on MI 61-101 specified markets and due to the financial hardship of the Company under exemptions set out in sections 5.5(b) and (g) and section 5.7(1)(e) of MI 61-101. Independent directors reviewed the shares for debt transactions and determined that the Company is in serious financial difficulty, the shares for debt transactions are designed to improve the financial position of the Company, and the terms of the shares for debt transactions are reasonable in the circumstances of the Company.
The shares for debt transactions are closing in less than 21 days due to the Company's immediate need to address its financial situation, which shorter period is both reasonable and necessary in the circumstances.
