What Happened

Under the deal, the company issued a total of 4,000 convertible debenture units at CA$1,000 ($731.375) per convertible debenture unit for aggregate gross proceeds of CA$4 million.

Each convertible debenture unit offered under the private placement is comprised of one convertible debenture of the company in the principal amount of CA$1,000 convertible into the company's common shares and 1,000 detachable common share purchase warrants, with each warrant exercisable into one common share at CA$0.55 per share for 30 months from the issue date of the convertible debenture units.

Subject to earlier conversion, redemption or purchase, the repayment of the principal amount of the convertible debentures will be made in twenty-five equal monthly installments, each equal to the outstanding principal amount of the debentures on the issue date divided by 25, with the final payment to be made on such date that is 30 months from the issue date.

The outstanding principal amount owing under the convertible debentures will accrue interest from the issue date at the rate of 12% annually, payable quarterly in cash.
