Each Unit consists of one $1,000 secured convertible debenture (“Debentures“) and 3,333 common share purchase warrants (“Warrant“). The Debentures mature on and become payable on December 16, 2027 (the “Term“) and bear interest at a fixed rate of 10% per annum, payable in arrears semi-annually in cash on December 31 and June 30 of each year. The Debentures are secured by the assets of the Company through a general security agreement and rank equally with all other Debentures.

The Company may force the conversion of the principal amount of the then outstanding Debentures at any time at the Conversion Price on not less than 5 days’ notice if the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) for any 10 consecutive trading day period is equal to or greater than $0.35. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.10 per common share until December 16, 2024.

The use of proceeds from the Offering will principally be to expand the Company’s portfolio of clients and for general working capital.
