10 APPENDIX A IN THE MATTER OF THE UNIVERSAL MARKET INTEGRITY RULES AND IN THE MATTER OF GLOBAL SECURITIES CORPORATION STATEMENT OF ALLEGATIONS I. REQUIREMENTS CONTRAVENED 1. Between October 6, 2005, and November 16, 2005, Global Securities Corporation, while acting as an underwriter for a private placement of securities for Jasper Mining Corporation, entered twenty-five orders to buy shares of Jasper Mining on the TSX Venture Exchange for its non-client, inventory and client accounts on a solicited basis, contrary to UMIR Schedule "A" sets out the text of the relevant Requirements. II. RELEVANT FACTS AND CONCLUSIONS Overview 3. UMIR 7.7 imposes trading restrictions on Participants involved in the distribution of securities, take-over bids, amalgamations and issuer bids. The purpose of UMIR 7.7 is to prescribe what is an acceptable activity and otherwise restrict trading activities to preclude manipulative conduct by persons with an interest in the outcome of the distribution of securities or other transactions. 1

11 Parties 4. Global Securities Corporation ( Global ) is a full service investment dealer, a member of the TSX Venture Exchange ( TSXV ), a Participating Organization of the TSX, and therefore a Participant under UMIR. Private Placement with Jasper Mining Corporation 5. Jasper Mining Corporation ( Jasper Mining ) is a company whose common shares are listed and traded on the TSXV. 6. On October 6, 2005 Jasper Mining and Global entered into an agreement in which Global agreed to act on a best efforts agency basis in the placement of 3,400,000 units of Jasper Mining at $0.45 per share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase 1 common share at a price of $0.65 per share expiring 18 months from the closing date. This agreement was evident by a Term Sheet executed by Global and Jasper Mining (the Agency Agreement ). 7. Under the Agency Agreement, Jasper would pay Global a 9% commission on the total amount that Global raised and share purchase warrants equal to 10% of the total number of shares sold under the private placement, expiring 18 months from the closing date at a price of $0.65 per share. 8. On October 6, 2005, Jasper Mining issued a press release announcing the private placement. 9. On November 2, 2005, Jasper Mining announced that it had increased the number of units offered under the private placement, up to 4,450,000 units. Jasper Mining did not change the pricing of the units offered in the private placement or the commission and warrants to be received by Global. 2

12 10. Global prepared the Agency Agreement dated October 27, 2005 pertaining to the private placement. On November 15, 2005, Global and Jasper Mining executed the Agency Agreement formalizing the terms of the private placement and the agency relationship. 11. The private placement closed on November 16, Global received $180, in commission and 444,997 common share warrants at $0.65 per share, expiring May 16, Application of UMIR 13. Global, as Jasper Mining s agent in the private placement, was an underwriter, as that term is defined by the Securities Act, RSBC 1996, c. 418, s. 1(1), as amended ( Securities Act ). Jasper Mining relied on the accredited investor exemption in the Securities Act to distribute the offered securities. Therefore, the financing was a restricted private placement as defined by UMIR As defined by UMIR 1.1, Global was a dealer-restricted person between October 6, 2005, the date on which Global and Jasper Mining entered into the Agency Agreement, and November 16, 2005, the closing date of the private placement (referred to as the Restricted Period ). Contraventions of UMIR During the Restricted Period, Global entered twenty-five orders on the TSXV to buy shares of Jasper Mining, resulting in the execution of fortythree trades. Of these orders, eight were made for non-client accounts, one was made for an inventory account at Global, and the rest were made for client accounts on a solicited or discretionary basis, contrary to UMIR 7.7(1). 16. In total, twenty-five orders were filled for twenty-three accounts, including client, non-client, and inventory. All of the twenty-eight trades for client 3

13 accounts were executed at prices higher than the private placement price of $0.45. None of these clients participated in the private placement. 17. Schedule B provides further particulars of the contraventions of UMIR 7.7 by Global. Global s Watch List and Restricted List 18. Pursuant to Global s Trade Supervision Policy (the Trade Supervision Policy ), Global maintained a list of issuers about which the firm may have inside information (the Watch List ) and about which the firm can be presumed to have inside information (the Restricted List ). Global monitored the trading of securities of issuers on the Watch and Restricted Lists. 19. On October 4, 2005, Global added Jasper Mining to the Watch List. 20. Global s Compliance staff and management knew that solicited client trades and inventory trades of Jasper Mining were being executed and that the security was on the firm s Watch List. 21. In or around November 4, 2005, through a telephone conversation and written communication, RS advised Global that it was potentially violating UMIR In or around November 10, 2007, in response to RS concerns, Global s Chief Compliance Officer advised Global s President that RS had made inquiries about Global s trades in Jasper Mining during the private placement. 23. Global took no steps to restrict or more closely monitor trading in the shares of Jasper Mining while it was acting as underwriter in the private placement. 24. Global took the position that UMIR 7.7 did not apply in the circumstances. 4

14 III. SUMMARY 25. The purpose of UMIR 7.7 is to prohibit purchases of, or bids for, restricted securities in circumstances where there is heightened concern over the possibility of manipulation or the misuse of confidential information by those with an interest in the outcome of a distribution of securities or other transaction. 26. The UMIR 7.7 prohibitions on trading during certain securities transactions are intended to signal to the public that the capital markets are a level playing field. 27. By disregarding the application of UMIR 7.7 and repeatedly purchasing Jasper Mining shares for non-client, inventory and discretionary accounts, and for client accounts in circumstances where the client orders were solicited, Global did harm to the reputation of the marketplace and the public s perception of the capital markets.

15 SCHEDULE A EXCERPTS FROM THE UNIVERSAL MARKET INTEGRITY RULES AND APPLICABLE SECURITIES LEGISLATION 1.1 Definitions "dealer-restricted person" means, in respect of a particular offered security: (a)... (c) a Participant that: (i) is an underwriter, as defined in applicable securities legislation, in a prospectus distribution or a restricted private placement, (ii) is participating, as agent but not as an underwriter, in a restricted private placement of securities and: (A) the number of securities to be issued under the restricted private placement would constitute more than 10% of the issued and outstanding offered securities, and (B) the Participant has been allotted or is otherwise entitled to sell more than 25% of the securities to be issued under the restricted private placement, (iii) has been appointed by an offeror to be the dealer-manager, manager or soliciting dealer or adviser in respect of a securities exchange takeover bid or issuer bid, or (iv) has been appointed by an issuer to be the soliciting dealer or adviser in respect of obtaining securityholder approval for an amalgamation, arrangement, capital reorganization or similar transaction that would result in the issuance of securities that would be a distribution exempt from prospectus requirements in accordance with applicable securities law, where, in each case, adviser means an adviser whose compensation depends on the outcome of the transaction; a partner, director, officer, employee or a person holding a similar position or acting in a similar capacity, of the Participant referred to in clause (a) or for a related entity of the Participant referred to in clause (b); offered security means all securities of the class of security that is, or will be upon issuance, a listed security or a quoted security and: (a) is offered pursuant to a prospectus distribution or a restricted private placement; 6

16 (b) (c) (d) is offered by an offeror in a securities exchange take-over bid in respect of which a take-over bid circular or similar document is required to be filed under securities legislation; is offered by an issuer in an issuer bid in respect of which an issuer bid circular or similar document is required to be filed under securities legislation; or would be issuable to a securityholder pursuant to an amalgamation, arrangement, capital reorganization or similar transaction in relation to which proxies are being solicited from securityholders that will receive the offered security in such circumstances that the issuance would be a distribution exempt from prospectus requirements in accordance with applicable securities legislation, provided that, if the security described in clauses (a) to (d) is a unit comprised of more than one type or class, each security comprising the unit shall be considered to be an offered security. Requirements means, collectively: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) these Rules; the Policies; the Trading Rules; the Marketplace Rules; any direction, order or decision of the Market Regulator or a Market Integrity Official; and securities legislation, as amended, supplemented and in effect from time to time. restricted period means, for a dealer-restricted person or an issuer-restricted person, the period: (a) in connection with a prospectus distribution or a restricted private placement of any offered security, commencing two trading days prior to the day the offering price of the offered security is determined and ending on the date the selling process has ended and all stabilization arrangements relating to the offered security are terminated provided that, if the person is a dealerrestricted person, the period shall commence on the date the Participant enters into an agreement or reaches an understanding to participate in the prospectus distribution or restricted private placement of securities, whether or not the terms and conditions of such participation have been agreed upon if that date is later; (b) in connection with a securities exchange take-over bid or issuer bid, commencing on the date of dissemination of the securities exchange take- 7

17 (c) over bid circular or issuer bid circular or similar document and ending with the termination of the period during which securities may be deposited under such bid, including any extension thereof, or the withdrawal of the bid; and in connection with an amalgamation, arrangement, capital reorganization or similar transaction, commencing on the date of dissemination of the information circular for such transaction and ending on the date for approval of the transaction by the securityholders that will receive the offered security or the termination of the transaction by the issuer or issuers. restricted private placement means a distribution of offered securities made pursuant to clause 72(1)(b) of the Securities Act (Ontario) or section 2.3 of Ontario Securities Commission Rule Exempt Distributions or similar provisions of applicable securities legislation. restricted security means: (a) (b) the offered security; or any connected security. 1.2 Interpretation (6) For the purposes of the definition of restricted period : (a) the selling process shall be considered to end: (i) in the case of a prospectus distribution, if a receipt has been issued for the final prospectus by the applicable securities regulatory authority and the Participant has allocated all of its portion of the securities to be distributed under the prospectus and all selling efforts have ceased, and (ii) in the case of a restricted private placement, the Participant has allocated all of its portion of the securities to be distributed under the offering; and (b) stabilization arrangements shall be considered to have terminated in the case of a syndicate of underwriters or agents when, in accordance with the syndication agreement, the lead underwriter or agent determines that the syndication agreement has been terminated such that any purchase or sale of a restricted security by a Participant after the time of termination is not subject to the stabilization arrangements or otherwise made jointly for the Participants that were party to the stabilization arrangements. 8

18 POLICY 1.2 INTERPRETATION Part 2 Meaning of selling process has ended The definition of restricted period, with respect to a prospectus distribution and a restricted private placement, refers to the end of the period as the date that the selling process ends and all stabilization arrangements relating to the offered security are terminated. Rule 1.2(6)(a) provides interpretation as to when the selling process is considered to end. As further clarification, the selling process is considered to end for a prospectus distribution when the receipt for the prospectus has been issued, the Participant has distributed all securities allocated to it and, is no longer stabilizing, all selling efforts have ceased and the syndicate is broken. Selling efforts have ceased when the Participant is no longer making efforts to sell, and there is no intention to exercise an over-allotment option other than to cover the syndicate s short position. If the Participant or syndicate subsequently exercises an over-allotment option in an amount that exceeds the syndicate short position, the selling efforts would not be considered to have ceased. Securities allocated to a Participant that are held and transferred to the inventory account of the Participant at the end of the distribution are considered distributed. Subsequent sales of such securities are secondary market transactions and should occur on a marketplace subject to any applicable exemptions (unless the subsequent sale transaction is a distribution by prospectus). To provide certainty around when the distribution has ended, appropriate steps should be taken to move the securities from the syndication account to the inventory account of the Participant. 7.7 Trading During Certain Securities Transactions (1) Prohibitions - Except as permitted, a dealer-restricted person shall not at any time during the restricted period: (a) bid for or purchase a restricted security for an account: (i) of a dealer-restricted person, or (ii) over which the dealer-restricted person exercises direction or control; or (b) attempt to induce or cause any person to purchase a restricted security. 9

19 POLICY 7.7 TRADING DURING CERTAIN SECURITIES TRANSACTIONS Part 1 Manipulative or Deceptive Activity Provisions prohibiting manipulative or deceptive activities, including activities that may create misleading pricing or trading activity that is detrimental to investors and the integrity of the markets, are contained in Rule 2.2. Rule 7.7 generally prohibits purchases of or bids for restricted securities in circumstances where there is heightened concern over the possibility of manipulation by those with an interest in the outcome of the distribution or transaction. Rule 7.7 also provides certain exemptions to permit purchases and bids in situations where there is no, or a very low possibility of manipulation. However, the Market Regulator is of the view that notwithstanding that certain trading activities are permitted under Rule 7.7, these activities continue to be subject to the general provisions relating to manipulative or deceptive activities in Rule 2.2 and the provisions on manipulation and fraud found in applicable securities legislation such that any activities carried out in accordance with Rule 7.7 must still meet the spirit of the general anti-manipulation provisions. British Columbia Securities Act, RSBC 1996, c. 418, s. 1(1): "underwriter" means a person who, (a) as principal, agrees to purchase a security for the purpose of distribution, (b) as agent, offers for sale or sells a security in connection with a distribution, or (c) participates directly or indirectly in a distribution described in paragraph (a) or (b), but does not include (d) a person whose interest in the transaction is limited to receiving the usual and customary distribution or sales commission payable by an underwriter or issuer, (e) a mutual fund that accepts its securities for surrender and resells them, (f) a corporation that purchases shares of its own issue and resells them, or (g) a bank with respect to securities described in section 46 and to prescribed banking transactions; 10

20 National Instrument Prospectus and Registration Exemptions (NI ) PART 2: PROSPECTUS AND REGISTRATION EXEMPTIONS Division 1: Capital Raising Exemptions Accredited investor 2.3 (1) The dealer registration requirement does not apply in respect of a trade in a security if the purchaser purchases the security as principal and is an accredited investor.

Note: NI came into force on September 14, 2005 and repealed Multilateral Instrument Capital Raising Exemptions, B.C. Reg. 225/2003 (MI ). Part 5.1 (Accredited investor exemption) of MI was the equivalent applicable securities legislation in British Columbia to section 2.3 (Exemption for a Trade to an Accredited Investor) of Ontario Securities Commission Rule Exempt Distributions. NI includes the following transitional provision: Transition - MI /MI / OSC Rule (1) In this section, MI means Multilateral Instrument Capital Raising Exemptions that came into force on June 6, 2003; MI means Multilateral Instrument Trades to Employees, Senior Officers, Directors and Consultants that came into force on August 15, 2003; 2004 OSC Rule means the Ontario Securities Commission Rule Exempt Distributions that came into force on January 12, (2) The dealer registration requirement or the prospectus requirement does not apply in respect of a trade in a security if the trade complies with and is completed in accordance with the requirements of MI , MI , or 2004 OSC Rule by November 30,
