Each Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share (a "Warrant Share") for a period of five years from closing at $0.05 per Warrant Share, provided that, if, at any time following the date of issuance, the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") is greater than $0.50 for 30 consecutive trading days, the Company may give notice to the holders of the Warrants that the expiry time of the Warrants has been accelerated and the Warrants will expire on the 20th business day following the date of such notice. Holders of Warrants are restricted from exercising Warrants without the approval of the TSXV if, as a result of exercise, the holder would hold more than 20% of the issued Common Shares of the Company.
The securities issued carry a four-month hold period under Canadian securities laws from the date of issuance. The issuance of the Units and listing of the Common Shares and the Warrant Shares pursuant to the Offering is subject to the TSXV approval.
