Pursuant to the Program, the Company is offering an inducement to each holder of Eligible Warrants (collectively, the “Warrant Holders”) that exercises Eligible Warrants during an early exercise period (the “Early Exercise Period”) that includes:
- a reduced exercise price of $0.13 per common share (each, a “Share”); and
- an additional Share purchase warrant (each an “Incentive Warrant”), with each Incentive Warrant entitling the Warrant Holder to purchase one additional Share until 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on such date as is two years from the date of issuance of the Incentive Warrant at a price of $0.35 per Share.
The Early Exercise Period will commence on August 21, 2019, at 9.00 a.m. (Vancouver time) and expire on September 6, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. (Vancouver time). Eligible Warrants that remain unexercised following the completion of the Early Exercise Period will continue to be exercisable for Shares on the original terms as they existed prior to the Program.
If, at any time during the Early Exercise Period, the closing price of the Shares on the Canadian Stock Exchange (“CSE”) exceeds $0.1625 per Share for 10 consecutive trading days, the term of the Eligible Warrants will be decreased to 30 days commencing 7 days following the end of the 10 day trading period.
Proceeds received by the Company from the exercise of Eligible Warrants under the Program will be used for advancing the construction of its Nevada extraction lab, hiring additional sales teams to increase revenues and speed to market, as well as for general working capital purposes.
Only Warrant Holders who are “accredited investors” under applicable Canadian securities laws or who provide satisfactory evidence that they meet the requirements of an alternative exemption from the prospectus requirements of applicable Canadian securities laws may participate in the Program. U.S. holders of the Eligible Warrants are not eligible to participate in the Program.
The Incentive Warrants will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of the Incentive Warrant issuance pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws. No fractional Incentive Warrants will be issued and the number of Incentive Warrants to be issued shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.
In connection with the Program, an aggregate of 17,500,000 Share purchase warrants (the “Financing Warrants”) held by subscribers under the Company’s secured convertible debentures financings of February 7, 2019 and June 11, 2019 will be reduced to an exercise price of $0.35 per Share. If, at any time during the term of the Financing Warrants, the closing price of the Shares on the CSE exceeds $0.4375 per Share for 10 consecutive trading days, the term of the Financing Warrants will be decreased to 30 days commencing 7 days following the end of the 10 day trading period.
