The units will be offered at a postconsolidation price of five cents per unit. Each unit will be composed of one postconsolidation common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional postconsolidation common share at a price of 12 cents per warrant share for a period of 18 months from closing of the offering, subject to adjustment in certain events. If, at any time following the date that is four months and one day following the closing of the offering, the company’s common shares have a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange of 18 cents or greater per common share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the company shall have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants that is at least 30 days following the date of such notice to holders of warrants.
