Accordingly, a total of 1,065,000 Warrants will be issued to subscribers if the Notes are fully subscribed. Each Warrant will be exercisable for a period of five years from the closing of the private placement at a price of CAD$0.10 per Share. Shares acquired on exercise of the Warrants will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of closing.
Proceeds from the private placement will be applied to payment of legal expenses relating to the Company’s ongoing activities to enforce its arbitral award against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and for general working capital.
