A copy of each of the Amending Agreement and the Original Agreement are available under BCI's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Meeting

Completion of the Transaction remains subject to a number of conditions, including approval by the Exchange and approval by the shareholders of BCI which will be sought at a special meeting thereof (the "Meeting").
