Under the increased offering, the Company has agreed to issue up to 14,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.35 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company (the "Shares") and one share purchase warrant (the "Warrants") with each Warrant entitling the holder to acquire a further common share of the Company at a price of $0.50 per share for a term of 2 years.

The Company had also granted the agent an over-allotment option, exercisable by notice at least 2 days prior to closing of the Private Placement, to increase the Private Placement by up to 15% or 2,100,000 Units.

Under terms of the engagement PowerOne will receive a commission equal to 6.5% of the gross proceeds from the sale of Units, payable in cash or Units at PowerOne's election. PowerOne will also be entitled to receive agent's warrants entitling them to acquire up to 6.5% of the number of Units sold in the Private Placement at a price of $0.35 per Unit. In accordance with applicable securities laws the Shares and the Warrants will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of the closing of the Private Placement.
