Registered shareholders of the Company will be receiving a letter of transmittal from the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as soon as practicable after the effective date of the Consolidation. The letter of transmittal will enable registered shareholders to exchange their old share certificates representing pre-Consolidation common shares for new share certificates representing the post-Consolidation common shares.

Until surrendered, each share certificate representing pre-Consolidation common shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of whole post-Consolidation common shares to which the holder is entitled as a result of the Consolidation.

The Company currently has 172,591,630 issued and outstanding common shares. Pursuant to the Consolidation, each ten (10) pre-Consolidation common shares will be consolidated into one (1) post-Consolidation common share. Accordingly, on completion of the Consolidation on the effective date of July 31, 2013, the Company will have approximately 17,259,163 common shares issued and outstanding.
