(“Virgin”) through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange representing approximately 2.1% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Virgin as of June 21, 2007.  As a result of this transaction, Pinetree and its joint actors collectively held, as at June 21, 2007, an aggregate of 9,000,500 common shares of Virgin and rights to acquire an additional 4,150,000 common shares of Virgin upon the exercise of convertible securities (collectively, the “Convertible Securities”).  Of these totals, Pinetree owns an aggregate of 9,000,500 common shares and convertible securities exercisable into an additional 1,750,000 common shares of Virgin.  In the event that the Convertible Securities are fully exercised, the holdings of Pinetree and its joint actors represents a total of 13,150,500 common shares of Virgin, or approximately 16.3% of all issued and outstanding common shares as at June 21, 2007, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Convertible Securities only.  In the event that only the 1,750,000 convertible securities held directly by Pinetree are fully exercised, Pinetree’s direct holdings would represent approximately 13.7% of all issued and outstanding common shares of Virgin as of June 21, 2007, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the 1,750,000 convertible securities only.
