(“Point Loma” or the “Company”) pursuant to an Order of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.

The Receiver has also provided a Sale Solicitation Process document (the “SSP”) outlining the details of the receivership sale. A copy of the SSP is found on Sayer’s website at www.sayeradvisors.com.
The Receiver was appointed by the Court pursuant to the application made by the Orphan Well Association and intends to divest the Properties, in whole or in part.
