The Company also announces that it has entered into agreements with certain of its creditors to satisfy debts owing for products and services provided to the Company in the aggregate amount of $52,725.35.

The creditors include Franz Kozich, the CEO and a director of the Company, and a company affiliated with Thomas Unterweissacher, a director of the Company, each of whom is a related party to the Company.
The Private Placement and the Share for Debt Transaction will each constitute a "related party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), in respect of the related parties participating in such transaction. However, each transaction is exempt from: (i) the valuation requirements of MI 61-101 by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.5(b) of MI 61-101, as the common shares of the Company are not listed on a market specified in MI 61-101, and (ii) from the minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101, by virtue of the exemption contained in Section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the common shares to be issued in such transactions will not exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.
