No Warrants issued to investors in the 2018 Private Placements have been exercised, and a total of 2,671,116 Warrants are being amended.

Each of the Original Expiry Dates is extended by nine months such that the Warrants will expire on February 4, April 30 and May 9, 2021, respectively.
In addition, each Warrant is currently subject to an acceleration clause that allows the Company to accelerate the expiration date of the Warrant if the closing price of the Common Shares of Western is equal to or greater than C$2.50 for a period of five consecutive trading days (the “Acceleration Clause”). Western is amending the Acceleration Clause of each Warrant by lowering the trigger price from C$2.50 to C$1.83 effective at 5:01 p.m. (Toronto time) on each of the Original Expiry Dates.
