Corporation" (the "Corporation") pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the
"Arrangement") under the Canada Business Corporations Act.

and management of the Fund prior to the Arrangement are now the directors and
officers of the Corporation. Upon the closing of the Arrangement, Mr. Brad

The Arrangement was approved at the special meeting of the holders
("Unitholders") of Class A trust units of the Fund held on July 22, 2009, with
100% of the votes cast by Unitholders in favour of the Arrangement. On July
27, 2009, the Court of Queen's Bench of Manitoba granted the final order
required in connection with the Arrangement.
Pursuant to the Arrangement, each Unitholder received one common share (a
"Share") of the Corporation for each Unit held. After giving effect to the
Arrangement, there are 9,980,723 Shares issued and outstanding.
The costs associated with the Arrangement are estimated to be $2,500.
