Based on the closing bid price of the Company’s listed securities for the last 30 consecutive business days from January 14, 2022, to February 28, 2022, the Company no longer meets the minimum bid price requirement set forth in Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).

In the event the Company does not regain compliance by August 29, 2022, the Company may be eligible for additional time to regain compliance or may face delisting.
The Company intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common shares between now and August 29, 2022, and to evaluate its available options to regain compliance within the compliance period.
In addition, the Company has received default notices from the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) for failure to timely file its Annual Information Form, annual financial statements, related management discussion and analysis and management certifications in respect of the same.
