The Private Placement was effected pursuant to the previously announced subscription agreement dated November 28, 2012 entered into among the Subscribers, CMH and Batero.

   4,265,000 Common Shares beneficially owned, or over which control or     
   direction, direct or indirect, was exercised by the Subscribers prior to

   Shares outstanding at such time; or                                      
                                                                            
   (ii) an aggregate 38,134,000 Common Shares, or approximately 39.4% of the
   Common Shares that would have be outstanding at such time assuming the   
   issuance of all 18,456,000 Common Shares for which the Subscription      
   Receipts may convert and all 6,500,000 Common Shares for which the       
   Warrants may be exercised.                                               

1,500,000 of the Warrants that the Subscribers beneficially own, and over which they exercise control or direction, directly or indirectly, will expire on April 26, 2014.
