Such an order will not generally affect theability of other persons to trade the securities of Hapbee pending the filingof the Required Disclosure via SEDAR.
Hapbee intends to comply with the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines as set out in the Policy for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports, if necessary, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release.
