In addition, the $2,300,000 convertible debenture held by PRI (plus approximately $175,000 in accrued interest), has been repaid in full and discharged using funds advanced to Lincoln through unsecured, non-convertible loans from companies controlled by two directors of Lincoln (the “Loans”). The Loans bear interest at a rate of 6% per annum, payable monthly commencing April 1, 2014 for a term of five years at which point the principal amount owing under the Loans is due.

The Company also announces the resignation of Lincoln’s Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), Mr. Jimmy Mah, and would like to thank Mr. Mah for his service to the Company. The Company has appointed Mr. Eugene Beukman as its new CFO.
