The Initial Debentures convert into units, consisting of one common share in the capital of the Company (the "Common Shares") and one common share purchase warrant (the "September Warrants"). Each Debenture Unit will consist of: (i) one $1,000 18% secured convertible debenture of the Company (the "Convertible Debentures"), and (ii) 10,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Series 1 Warrants"). The Convertible Debentures will mature and be repayable on September 8, 2026 (the "Maturity Date"). At any time prior to the Maturity Date, the holder will be entitled to convert each Convertible Debenture into Common Shares at a price of $0.10 per Common Share. Each Series 1 Warrant will be exercisable to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share until September 8, 2026, subject to accelerated expiry. If, at any time, the closing price of the Common Shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") is greater than $0.30 per Common Share for twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Company may provide written notice (a "Warrant Acceleration Notice") to the holders of the Series 1 Warrants that the expiry of the exercisable Series 1 Warrants shall be accelerated to a date that is not less than fifteen (15) days from the date of the Warrant Acceleration Notice (the "Acceleration Right").
The Convertible Debentures shall be secured against all present and after-acquired personal property of the Company and its subsidiaries, pursuant to general security agreements among the Company, its subsidiaries and the Trustee (collectively, the "GSAs") and shall rank pari passu with all current holders of secured debentures of the Company, whether of the same issue or previous issue, as per the terms of the GSAs, an intercreditor agreement among the Company, its subsidiaries and the Trustee (the "Intercreditor Agreement") and debenture indentures between the Company and the Trustee.
The Exchange remains subject to receipt of final approval of the TSXV.
The Company is also pleased to announce its intention to complete a non-brokered private placement offering of up to an additional $2,500,000 in principal amount of convertible debenture units (the "Series 2 Debenture Units") on the same terms as set out in the A&R Debenture Indenture (the "Series 2 Financing"). Each Series 2 Debenture Unit shall consist of: (i) one $1,000 18% secured convertible debenture (the "Series 2 Debentures") and (ii) 10,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Series 2 Warrants"). The Series 2 Debentures will mature and be repayable on the date that is thirty-six (36) months from the date of issuance (the "Series 2 Maturity Date"). At any time prior to the Series 2 Maturity Date, the holder will be entitled to convert each Series 2 Debenture into Common Shares at a price of $0.10 per Common Share. Each Series 2 Warrant is exercisable to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share for a period of three (3) years from the closing of the Series 2 Financing, subject to acceleration pursuant to the Acceleration Right.
The Company anticipates using the net proceeds of the Series 2 Financing for inventory and working capital. In connection with the Series 2 Financing, the Company will pay a commission of 8% cash on the gross proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the Company by finders, and will issue up to such number of finder's warrants (each a "Finder's Warrant") as is equal to 8% of the number of Common Shares issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures purchased by subscribers introduced to the Company by such finders. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at a price of $0.15 per Common Share for a period of three (3) years from the closing date.
Closing of the Series 2 Financing is expected to occur in one or more tranches, with the first tranche expected to close on or about the week of December 11th, 2023. The Series 2 Debenture Units and any securities issuable upon conversion thereof are subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance of the Series 2 Debenture Units. The Series 2 Financing remains subject to final approval by the TSXV.
The Series 2 Debentures shall be secured against all present and after-acquired personal property of the Company and its subsidiaries, pursuant to the GSAs and shall rank pari passu with all current holders of secured debentures of the Company, whether of the same issue or previous issue, as per the terms of the GSAs, the Intercreditor Agreement and debenture indentures between the Company and the Trustee.
Related Party Transaction and Minority Shareholder Approval
The Company expects Dr. Constantine Zachos, a director of the Company, to subscribe for 67 Series 2 Debenture Units, for total gross proceeds of $67,000 in the Series 2 Financing. Such participation is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61101"). Additionally, certain related parties of the Company subscribed for an aggregate of 1,572
Initial Debentures in the September Financing. In connection with the Exchange, B&M Miller Equity Holdings Inc., a company controlled by Brad Miller, a director of the Company, will receive
426 Debenture Units, Dr. Gaurav Puri, a director of the Company will receive 661 Debenture Units, and Dr. Constantine Zachos (together with Brad Miller and Dr. Gaurav Puri (the "Insiders") will receive 485 Debenture Units (the "Series 1 Participation"). Such participation in the Exchange is considered a related party transaction within the meaning of MI 61-101.
Staff of the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC Staff") have indicated that, in respect of the Series 1 Participation, the Company was not able to rely on the exemption from the requirement for minority shareholder approval in section 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101 as the fair market value of the aggregate value of the Common Shares to be issued to participating Insiders upon conversion of the Initial Debentures and the Common Shares to be issued to participating Insiders upon exercise of the September Warrants represents more than 25% of the Company's market capitalization calculated in accordance with MI 6l-101. As no other exemptions from the minority approval requirement under MI 61-101 were available for the Series 1 Participation in the September Financing, at the request of OSC Staff, the Company expects to seek minority shareholder approval (the "Minority Approval") in respect of the Series 1 Participation and the Exchange at the next annual shareholders meeting.
The Insiders will not be able to transfer nor exercise the Series 1 Warrants to be issued upon completion of the Exchange unless and until Minority Approval is obtained. Furthermore, the Series 1 Warrants will be cancelled in the event Minority Approval is not obtained. The Common Shares held by Insiders shall be excluded from the Minority Approval vote.

The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act") and may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States or "U.S. persons" (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the 1933 Act) absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act any application state securities laws.
