On June 3, 2013, NYSE Regulations, Inc. ("NYSE Regulation") commenced proceedings to delist the common shares ("Common Shares") of the Company from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and trading in the Company's Common Shares was suspended prior to the opening on Friday, June 7, 2013. NYSE Regulation reached its decision to delist the Common Shares in view of the fact that the Company's Common Shares had fallen below the NYSE's continued listing standard for an average closing price of less than $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading day period. The Company has no intention to appeal the NYSE Regulation staff's decision as the Company continues to focus on its turnaround and restructuring plan for a long-term financial solution. The Company's Common Shares will continue to be listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") after the delisting from the NYSE, and shareholders in the United States can continue to trade their shares using the facilities of the TSX. Shareholders should consult a qualified financial advisor before acting on any information contained herein.
