    Transaction Details:

    Tribe Management acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of DMSI in consideration for $13,000,000 (the “Purchase Price”).  The Purchase Price was satisfied as follows: (i) $10,000,000 in cash paid on closing, subject to adjustment; and (ii) $3,000,000 payable by promissory note.1

    Tribe is funding the Purchase Price through cash on hand, drawing on the Company’s acquisition debt facility and the Financing (as detailed below).

    The vendors and DMSI are at arm’s length from Tribe.  No finder’s fees were paid in connection with the Acquisition.


    In connection with the Acquisition, the Company conducted a non-brokered private placement of 7,048,921 units of the Company (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.52 per Unit to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $3,665,439.40 (the “Financing”).  Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”).  Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.82 at any time on or before that date which is five years after the closing date of the Financing. The net proceeds of the Financing have been used by the Company to complete the Acquisition.

    PROPELR Growth (“PROPELR”) led the Financing by subscribing for 4,615,385 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,400,000.20 (the “Lead Order”). The Financing also included participation by the operators of DMSI for an aggregate of 961,538 Units.

In connection with the Financing, the Company paid an aggregate of $10,812 to Ventum Financial Corp. and Cormark Securities Inc. in consideration for introducing subscribers to the Financing.

    PROPELR is a “related party” of the Company and the Lead Order constitutes a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61- 101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (“MI 61-101”). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 with respect to the Lead Order contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a).

    The Company will file a material change report in respect of the Lead Order. However, the material change report will be filed less than 21 days prior to the closing of the Lead Order, which is consistent with market practice and the Company deems reasonable in the circumstances.
