Mr. Zhang is a Certified General Accountant, a member of the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA, U.K.) and a member of the Chinese Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Operational Update

Since the last operational update provided by the Company, as announced on May 27, 2014 the Company has agreed to sell its wholly-owned subsidiary Hanfeng Slow-Release Fertilizer (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. for cash consideration of RMB 30 million (approximately Cdn$5.2 million) with the final payment expected to be received by the Company by the end of July 2014. In addition, limited repairs continue to be made at the Company's Heilongjiang (HLJ) plant and there has been no production at the HLJ plant as a result of the summer season and a lack of short-term prospects for customer orders.

The Company continues to evaluate alternatives available to it with respect to its business and operations.

Continuous Disclosure and Securities Filings

The Company is continuing its efforts to retain an auditor but, to date, has not been able to identify an auditor that has the desire to take the assignment (and views the potential of finding a suitable auditor in the near term as unlikely). As a result, the Company does not believe that it will be able to file its outstanding financial statements and accompanying management discussion and analysis or any future financial statements and accompanying management discussion and analysis in the near future and does not intend to do so until the engagement of, and review by, a new auditor.

The common shares of the Company remain subject to cease trade orders issued by Canadian securities regulatory authorities and were delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange effective at the close of market on June 9, 2014.
