Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company during the period ending on the day following the earlier of: (A) the day that is two years from the date of issue or (B) if at any time from the date of issue (i) the Common Shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) at a price greater than CDN$5.00 per Common Share (subject to customary adjustments) for at least twenty-five (25) trading days within any thirty (30) trading day period (the “Triggering Event”) and (ii) the Company elects to deliver a notice to the holder within 10 (ten) trading days of the Triggering Event, the day that is 30 days after such notice, in either event at a price equal to US$3.60 per whole Common Share. The Warrants contain customary anti-dilution provisions, including adjustments upon the payment of a dividend in Common Shares; subdivision or combination of the Common Shares; or the issuance of rights, options or warrants to all or substantially all holders of the Common Shares. The current number of outstanding Common Shares of the Company, without giving effect to the Offering, is 9,860,442 (the “Undiluted Issued and Outstanding”).
The issue price of the Units represents approximately a 22.6% premium on the market price of the Common Shares on the date of a binding agreement, as defined by the TSX. Securities issued will be subject to a hold period, which will expire four months plus one day from the date of closing.
