The certificate representing Warrants provides that Investec shall not be entitled to exercise the Warrants where, following such exercise, Investec would hold more than 19.9% of the then issued and outstanding Shares, unless the Company has received shareholder and any other requisite approvals. Accordingly, the Company may seek shareholder approval in respect of the foregoing at the next scheduled meeting of shareholders.
In addition, in the event that Investec wishes to transfer all or a portion of the Warrants representing more than 10% of the then issued and outstanding Shares, Euromax would have the right to match or find an alternative purchaser for such Warrants.
