The 2009 Warrants and the 2010 Warrants held by insiders of the Company will not be extended, as consented to by such insiders.

The common shares underlying the 2009 Warrants and the 2010 Warrants held by non-insiders which are subject to the proposed amendment represent approximately 8.2% of the currently issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.
