The Recent Report disclosed that Mr. Barakat, whether alone or with any joint actors, had no ‎plans or intentions which relate, or would result in a change, to any items set out in  Item 5 of the ‎Amended Report, which, included, without limitation, any plans to acquire additional, or dispose of, securities of the Issuer‎. The Recent Report further provided that the Mr. Barakat may increase or decrease his investment, directly or ‎indirectly, in securities of the Issuer from time to time, depending on market conditions or any other ‎relevant factors.

There has been no change to the number of Common Shares, or other securities of the Issuer, beneficially owned by Mr. Barakat, or over which he has ‎control or direction, since the Recent Report. Mr. Barakat beneficially owns or, through GKAT Inc., exercises control or direction over 14,991,680 Common Shares and options (each, an "Option") to acquire an additional 700,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 17.97% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares on a non-diluted basis and representing approximately 18.66% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, assuming the full exercise of all of the Options that Mr. Barakat beneficially owns or exercises control or direction over.

In addition, Mr. Barakat and certain companies controlled by him (collectively the "Plaintiffs") ‎commenced a legal proceeding against the Issuer (the "Proceedings"), the directors of the Issuer, and others (collectively, ‎the "Defendants") in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice under court file number CV-22-‎‎00681249-0000.  In response to the Proceedings, the Plaintiffs have received a Notice of Intent to Defend on behalf of all of the ‎Defendants.‎
