Such participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(b) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101, as the Company’s securities are not listed on a specified market and the fair market value of the Units being issued to insiders in connection with the Private Placement does not exceed $2,500,000, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101.
