ACCREDITED INVESTOR QUESTIONNAIRE

 

The undersigned understands that the purpose of this Questionnaire is to permit Bionik Laboratories Corp. (“Bionik”) to determine whether the undersigned is an “accredited investor” as such term is defined in Rule 501(a) promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”). The undersigned represents to you that (i) the information contained herein is complete and accurate and may be relied upon by Bionik, and (ii) the undersigned will notify Bionik immediately of any change in any of such information.

 

All information furnished is for the sole use of Bionik and its counsel and will be held in confidence by Bionik and its counsel, except that this Questionnaire may be furnished to such parties as Bionik deems advisable to establish compliance with federal or state securities laws.

 

A. For Individuals:

 

The undersigned individual is an “Accredited Investor” for one or more of the following reasons (check all that apply):

 

  ¨ The undersigned is an individual (not a partnership, corporation, etc.) whose individual net worth, or joint net worth with his or her spouse, presently exceeds $1,000,000. For purposes of calculating net worth under this paragraph, (i) the primary residence shall not be included as an asset, (ii) to the extent that the indebtedness that is secured by the primary residence is in excess of the fair market value of the primary residence, the excess amount shall be included as a liability, and (iii) if the amount of outstanding indebtedness that is secured by the primary residence exceeds the amount outstanding 60 days prior to the execution of this Accredited Investor Questionnaire, other than as a result of the acquisition of the primary residence, the amount of such excess shall be included as a liability.

  

  ¨ The undersigned is an individual (not a partnership, corporation, etc.) who had (i) an individual income in excess of $200,000 or (ii) joint income together with their spouse in excess of $300,000, in each of the two most recent years and reasonably expect to reach the same income level in the current year. For purposes of the foregoing, “income” is not limited to “adjusted gross income” as that term is defined for federal income tax purposes, but rather includes certain items of income which are deducted in computing “adjusted gross income”. For investors who are salaried employees, the gross salary of such investor, minus any significant expenses personally incurred by such investor in connection with earning the salary, plus any income from any other source including unearned income, is a fair measure of “income” for purposes of this question. For investors who are self-employed, “income” is generally construed to mean total revenues received during the calendar year minus significant expenses incurred in connection with earning such revenues.

  

  ¨ The undersigned is a director, executive officer, or general partner of the issuer of the securities being offered or sold, or any director, executive officer, or general partner of a general partner of that issuer.

  

  ¨ The undersigned individual is not an “Accredited Investor” because none of the above apply.

 

B. For Entities:

 

The undersigned is an “Accredited Investor” because the undersigned falls within at least one of the following categories (Check all appropriate lines):

  

  ¨        (i) a bank as defined in Section 3(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or a savings and loan association or other institution as defined in Section 3(a)(5)(A) of the Act whether acting in its individual or fiduciary capacity;

  

  ¨        (ii) a broker-dealer registered pursuant to Section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended;

 

 

 

 

  ¨        (iii) an insurance company as defined in Section 2(a)(13) of the Act;

  

  ¨        (iv) an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”) or a business development company as defined in Section 2(a)(48) of the Investment Act;

  

  ¨        (v) a Small Business Investment Company licensed by the U.S. Small Business Investment Act of 1958, as amended;

 

  ¨        (vi) a plan established and maintained by a state, its political subdivisions, or any agency or instrumentality of a state or its political subdivisions, for the benefit of its employees, where such plan has total assets in excess of $5,000,000;

  

  ¨        (vii) an employee benefit plan within the meaning of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (the “Employee Act”), where the investment decision is made by a plan fiduciary, as defined in Section 3(21) of the Employee Act, which is either a bank, savings and loan association, insurance company, or registered investment adviser, or an employee benefit plan that has total assets in excess of $5,000,000 or a self-directed plan the investment decisions of which are made solely by persons that are accredited investors.

  

  ¨        (viii) a private business development company, as defined in Section 202(a)(22) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 as amended;

  

  ¨        (ix) an organization described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, a corporation, a business trust, or a partnership, not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the securities offered, with total assets in excess of $5,000,000;

  

  ¨        (x) a trust, with total assets in excess of $5,000,000, not formed for the specific purpose of acquiring the securities offered, whose purchase is directed by a “sophisticated” person, who has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that he is capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment;

  

  ¨        (xi) an entity in which all of the equity investors are persons or entities described above.

  

  ¨ The undersigned is an entity all the equity owners of which are “accredited investors” within one or more of the above categories. If relying upon this Category alone, each equity owner must complete a separate copy of this Questionnaire. (Describe the entity below.)

  

  ¨ The undersigned entity is not an “Accredited Investor” because none of the above apply.
