Interest on the Debentures shall be paid semi-annually in arrears at an interest rate of 12% per annum.
The Company has the right to convert the Debentures into common shares of the Company at the Conversion Price in the event the closing price of the Company’s common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (or such other stock exchange on which the Company’s common shares are then listed for trading) is greater than $0.28 (subject to adjustment for any subdivision, consolidation, merger, amalgamation, reorganization, plan of arrangement or reclassification pursuant to the Articles) for a period of 10 consecutive trading days.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to pay out an existing loan which will leave assets unencumbered, and for general working capital.
Closing of the Private Placement is subject to all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issue under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.
