The Warrants will now expire at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on Friday July 6, 2018. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $2.15 per share.
Pursuant to section 2.2(5) of the Warrant Indenture, the Company has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants in the event that the volume weighted average trading price of the Company’s common shares is equal to or exceeds $2.80 for a period of ten (10) consecutive trading days on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “Acceleration Event”).
This press release constitutes notice that the Acceleration Event has occurred and the Company has elected to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Indenture to the date that is thirty (30) days after the date hereof, being July 6, 2018. This notice only affects warrants issued under the Warrant Indenture dated March 24, 2017 and not any other warrant indenture pursuant to which the Company has issued warrants.
Investors should note that pursuant to section 3.3(5) of the Warrant Indenture all shares that are issued pursuant to exercise of the Warrants are subject to a contractual escrow hold period and cannot be traded until May 2, 2019 and accordingly the shares shall bear such a restrictive legend.
