"Company") announces that it has completed the sale of an additional 914,700
common shares of the Company following the exercise of the underwriters'
over-allotment option granted by the Company in connection with its previously

over-allotment option will be used for working capital purposes.

solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities
in the United States or any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale
would be unlawful. The securities have not been registered under the U.S.
Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the
