The Company also provided an update on regulatory matters. In response to an application made by the Company in connection with the Company's previously announced delay in filing its interim financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 (together with the required associated filings, the "Canadian Required Filings") with Canadian securities regulators until after the May 15, 2016 filing deadline, the Autorité des marchés financiers (the company's principal securities regulator in Canada) issued a customary management cease trade order ("MCTO") on May 17, 2016 relating to the trading in securities of the Company by the Company's CEO and CFO and each other member of the Company's board of directors. Keeping with common practice, an MCTO relating to a director of the Company who is resident in Ontario was issued by the Ontario Securities Commission on that same date.  The MCTOs do not affect the ability of other shareholders to trade in the securities of the Company.  

In connection with the issuance of the MCTOs, and in accordance with its obligation to provide bi-weekly updates under the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults, the Company confirms that it has fulfilled its stated intentions regarding compliance with such alternative information guidelines and that, except as previously disclosed, there have been no material changes to the information relating to the Company's delay in making the Canadian Required Filings or its other required filings under applicable Canadian securities laws or otherwise concerning the affairs of the Company.
