   Shares outstanding at such time; or                                      
                                                                            
   (ii) an aggregate 38,134,000 Common Shares, or approximately 39.4% of 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.
