The Company has agreed to grant the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the Units at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering.

Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Subordinate Voting Share at an exercise price of $0.79, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering. If, following the closing of the Offering, the daily volume weighted average price of the Subordinate Voting Shares on the NEO Exchange is equal to or greater than $1.13 for any 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may, upon providing written notice to the holders of Warrants, accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such written notice.
