In connection with the closing of the Offering, the Company issued an aggregate of 3,128,334 units (the "Units") at a price of CDN $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of CDN $469,250.10.

Such participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units acquired by the insiders, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such insiders, exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. As required by MI 61-101, the Company advises that it expects to file a material change report relating to the Offering less than 21 days before completion of the Offering, which is necessary to complete the Offering in an expeditious manner and is reasonable in the circumstances.
Plymouth Rock intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for commercialization of technology and working capital.
The Company will pay 7% cash finder's fees in connection with some of subscriptions from subscribers introduced to this Offering.
The securities issued under the Offering, and any Shares that may be issuable on exercise of any such securities, will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance of such securities.
