offer (the "Offer") made to purchase all of the issued and outstanding common
shares of Engenuity Technologies Inc. ("Engenuity") including common shares
issuable upon the exercise of outstanding options (the "Engenuity Common

representing approximately 85.4% of the outstanding Engenuity Common Shares
were validly tendered to the Offer as at 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on
March 30, 2007.
    As all conditions to the Offer have been satisfied, the Offeror has
instructed the Depositary, Computershare Investor Services Inc., to take up
