On July 28, 2016, the Autorité des marchés financiers (the "AMF") will file a request with the Bureau to further extend for another 120 days the freeze orders initially issued on August 4, 2011 and November 16, 2012 in the matter of Daniel L'Heureux et al. This freeze order extension request pertains to the following entities and individuals: Daniel L'Heureux, 9248-8543 Québec inc., Nosfinances.com inc., Claude Lemay, Claude Lemay Consultant inc., Caisse Desjardins du Grand-Coteau, Caisse Populaire d'Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Bank of Montreal and National Bank of Canada.

The AMF will also file a request with the Bureau to lift the freeze order on certain assets so that the AMF may proceed with the sale of said assets through a third party with a view to potentially paying out the remaining balance of the sale price to investors harmed by the respondents' actions.

The hearing will be held on July 28, 2016 starting at 2:00 p.m. in the Paul-Fortugno room located at 500 René-Lévesque Boulevard West, Suite 16.40 in Montréal, Québec.
