Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.25 per Common Share.
No finder's fees, broker's fees and/or commissions will be paid in connection with the Investment.
Under applicable Canadian securities law, the Debentures, the Warrants and the underlying Common Shares to be issued pursuant thereto will be subject to a hold period of four months and a day from the date of issuance of the Debentures and the Warrants.
