        of Vitality as he purchased 0.25% of the outstanding common shares;

        on this exemption by Mr. Grant within any period of 12 months does
        not exceed 5% of the outstanding common shares of Vitality at the
        beginning of the 12-month period;

    (3) There is a published market for Vitality common shares on the TSX
        Venture Exchange; and

    (4) The value of the consideration paid for any of the Vitality common
        shares acquired by Mr. Grant is not in excess of the market price at
        the date of the acquisition.

    Mr. Grant acquired the common shares for investment purposes and may,
depending on market and other conditions, increase or decrease his ownership
position in securities of Vitality through market transactions, private
agreements, treasury issuances or otherwise. A copy of the Early Warning
Report will be available on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.
