The Company is a Capital Pool Company (a "CPC") as that term is defined in the polices of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

The Company's common shares were listed for trading on Tier 2 of the Exchange under the Symbol "AAP.P" on January 31, 2013, and were immediately halted pending the completion of the IPO. The Company expects the common shares to resume trading on February 5, 2013.
Canaccord Genuity Corp. acted as agent (the "Agent") in respect of the IPO. The Company paid the Agent a cash commission equal to 10% of the Proceeds and an administration fee. In addition, the Company granted the Agent and its sub-agent an aggregate of 400,000 non-transferable warrants (each, an "Agent's Warrant" and collectively, the "Agent's Warrants"). Each Agent's Warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date on which the common shares were listed on the Exchange (the "Listing Date"). The Company also granted the Agent a right of first refusal to participate in any further brokered financing of equity or securities convertible into equity, or to provide sponsorship services for any Qualifying Transaction of the Company for a period of 24 months from the Listing Date.
The Company granted an aggregate of 1,020,000 incentive stock options (each, an "Option" and collectively, the "Options") to its directors and officers. Each Option entitles its holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of ten years from the Listing Date.
