As a result of the closing of the first tranche of the Private Placement, there are 86,094,091 common shares of Midland issued and outstanding.

The Private Placement was carried out pursuant to prospectus exemptions of applicable securities laws and is subject to final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
