Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company (“Common Share“) and one Common Share purchase warrant (“Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.19 per Common Share, and is exercisable for the period commencing on the date of conversion of such Series C Debenture and ending on the Maturity Date. Assuming the conversion in full of the Purchased Debentures and the exercise in full of the warrants issuable upon such conversion, the Purchased Debentures are convertible into 2,112,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 2.2% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares after giving effect to such conversion and exercise.
