In addition, investors and security holders may obtain free copies of the documents filed with the SEC by FSI by directing a written request to: FSI at Flexible Solutions International, Inc. 6001 54th Ave, Taber AB, Canada T1G 1X4.

No offering of securities in connection with the proposed merger shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
