John Proust, Southern Arc's Chairman and CEO, will be subscribing for 2 million Shares (C$700,000) of the Private Placement through a trust, of which he is the sole trustee (the "Trust"). The balance of 1 million Shares (the "Balance") will be available for purchase by investors until October 4, 2019 (the "Offering Period") pursuant to applicable prospectus exemptions including sales to accredited investors, family members, close friends and business associates of directors and officers of the Company, purchasers who have obtained suitability advice from a registered investment dealer pursuant to the exemption set out in BC Instrument 45-536 (Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain distributions through an investment dealer) (the "Investment Dealer Exemption") and existing shareholders of the Company pursuant to the exemption set out in BC Instrument 45- 534 (Exemption from prospectus requirement for certain trades to existing security holders) (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption").

If the Balance is over-subscribed, subscriptions will be accepted at the discretion of the Company.

The Existing Shareholder Exemption is available to shareholders of record of the Company residing in all Canadian jurisdictions as at September 27, 2019 (the "Record Date").
