In consideration for the services provided by the Agent in connection with the Offering, the Agent received a commission of 245,300 units (the "Agent's Units") of the Company and $87,350 in cash. Each Agent's Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each common share purchase warrant exercisable to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.75 at any time until April 11, 2009. The Agent also received 600,000 compensation options that entitle the Agent, at any time until April 11, 2009, to acquire such number of common shares of the Company at an exercise price of $0.55 per common share. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws.
