Beaty to establish a C$5.0 million unsecured credit facility (the “Facility”). The Facility will provide short-term financing for general corporate and working capital purposes. The Facility bears interest of 8.0% per annum and matures on the earlier of: (i) September 30, 2021, (ii) two business days after the Company receives aggregate gross proceeds from one or more equity financings in excess of C$10.0 million; or (iii) the date of a change of control of the Company, at which time it must be repaid in full.

Mr. Beaty is considered a “related party” of the Company, and the Facility constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Take-over Bids and Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Facility is exempt from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Facility, nor the fair market value of the consideration for the Facility, exceeds 25% of the Company’s market capitalization.
To the knowledge of the Company or any director or senior officer of the Company, after reasonable inquiry, no “prior valuations” (as defined in MI 61-101) in respect of the Company that relate to the Facility, or are relevant to the Facility, have been prepared within 24 months preceding the date hereof.
