The securities issued, including any shares issued upon exercise of the warrants, are subject to a 4 month hold period.
The definitive agreements also provide for a further US$3 million loan facility increase to be disbursed upon the fulfillment of certain conditions. Upon the Company receiving this further loan increase it will, at that time, issue an additional 900,000 warrants having the same terms as the warrants described above.
