The amendments also grant the Company with continued access to borrowings under its revolving credit facility, which provides it with liquidity to fund operations as the Company continues to operate its business and serve its customers in the ordinary course.

The Company has agreed to increase the applicable margin by 1.5% (of which 1% is payable in kind) under the term loan credit facility and by 0.5% under the revolving credit facility, subject to certain levels of leverage and availability.

Retention of Centerview Partners LLC

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has formed a special committee comprised of independent directors, and such committee has retained Centerview Partners LLC as its independent financial advisor to assist in the review and evaluation of strategic alternatives and in the Company's ongoing discussions with its lenders.

Application for Management Cease Trade Order

As a result of the delay in filing the Annual Filings, the Company has made an application with the applicable securities regulators in Canada under National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders ("National Policy 12-203") requesting that, in accordance with National Policy 12-203, a management cease trade order ("MCTO") be imposed in respect of this late filing, but there is no guarantee that the MCTO will be granted. If the MCTO is granted, and until the Annual Filings are filed, management of the Company confirms that the Company will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under National Policy 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases so long as the Company remains in default of the filing requirements referred to above. If the MCTO is granted, it will restrict trading in the securities of the Company by members of management of the Company who are subject to the MCTO.
