The loans made pursuant to the Loan Agreements were converted into Common Shares at a conversion price of C$0.7 per Common Share in respect of the Bridge Loan Agreement and C$0.55 per Common Share in respect of the Preconstruction Loan Agreement. The outstanding balances of the Loan Agreements are convertible at the same prices.
