Each Unit being comprised of one (1) common share of the Corporation (each a "Share") and one half of one (1/2) Share purchase warrant of the Corporation (each whole, being a "Warrant"), each Warrant is exercisable into one (1) Share at a price of $0.075 until May 22, 2019. Holders converting their Debentures will receive accrued and unpaid interest thereon, up to, but excluding, the date of conversion in Units at deemed price per Unit equal to the maximum permitted discount on the CSE, or any other recognized exchange on which the Shares are listed (the "Discounted Conversion Price").
In the event that either: (i) the Shares, currently traded on the CSE, achieve a volume weighted average price of at least $0.20 for a period of 30 consecutive trading days, or (ii) the Corporation announces the closing of an equity financing at a minimum price of $0.10 for minimum gross proceed of $500,000, the Debentures' aggregate principal amount together with any accrued and unpaid interest may, at the Corporation' sole discretion, be automatically converted into Units at the Discounted Conversion Price, on the date that is 15 business days from the occurrence of the acceleration event.
