Mrs Brigitte Chabarekh, actual director of the Board of Charbone, will not renew her mandate after December 19, 2023.

In an effort to conserve its capital, the Corporation entered into those debt settlement agreements with certain members of management, including its Chief Executive Officer, to settle remuneration debts. Any debt settlement will be reflected by a formal agreement and pursuant to Policy 4.4 – Security Based Compensation of the Exchange Corporate Finance Manual, the Shares for Debt is subject to acceptance by the Exchange and subject to disinterested shareholder approval as the deemed value of the Common Shares to be issued exceeds $10,000 per month in aggregate. Any securities issued pursuant to a debt settlement will be subject to a statutory four month hold period in Canada.

Mr. André Halley has a career spanning over 40 years in the telecommunications industry occupying multiple presidential executive positions. Since the last couple of years, Mr. Halley was involved in Senior Advisory mandates sharing his expertise in international activities, management, start-up financing, growth industries and technology. As an accomplished senior executive and board member, Mr. Halley will bring a magnificent complementary experience to the Board of Charbone.

We thank Mrs Brigitte Chabarekh for her time and involvement as a member of the Board since the beginning, but also as the Chairman of the Audit Committee. We understand that Mrs Chabarekh will need to concentrate her efforts on new and increased professional responsibilities and wish her great success in her next endeavors.
