The Company is targeting to raise up to $3,000,000 pursuant to the Offering, however, the Company retains the ability to raise up to $4,000,000 through the issue and sale of up to 16,000,000 Units if it so chooses.

The Units are expected to be offered to "accredited investors" within the meaning of National Instrument 45-106, or to such other qualified persons as may be determined by Raise. Qualified current shareholders that may be interested in participating in the Offering are encouraged to contact the Company directly.

The Company has agreed to pay a finder's fee of a maximum of 6% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering and compensation options exercisable to acquire that number of Common Shares that is equal to a maximum of 6% of the aggregate number of Units issued and sold pursuant to the Offering to qualified agents that provide introductions to qualified investors that ultimately subscribe for Units.
