The Vancouver-based company also announced that Greg Reid has stepped down as director of the company in order to focus on his filmmaking career.

“He has made many contributions to the success and growth of the company, drawing on his wealth of experience and contacts from his successful business career. On behalf of the board of directors, the management team and our shareholders, I thank Greg and wish him all the best in the future."
