(the "Lender"), an entity controlled by the Company's largest indirect beneficial shareholder Avonlea-Drewry Holdings Inc., and which is a party to the Company's previously announced letter of intent in respect of a proposed business acquisition, recapitalization and debt restructuring transaction involving Pathway, HEAL and The Newly Institute Inc.

None of the securities sold in connection with the Offering will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction nin which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Neither the Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this Press Release.
