("Era Resources"). The Debenture matures on December 31, 2017 and does not bear interest. The principal amount of the Debenture is convertible into fully paid and non-assessable common shares of Era Resources ("Common Shares") at a conversion price of Cdn.$0.45 per share.
Sentient IV has control or direction over 293,340 Common Shares (representing approximately 2.58% of the outstanding Common Shares), convertible unsecured debentures in a principal aggregate amount of US$38,426,130 (collectively, the "First Debenture"), convertible unsecured debentures in a principal aggregate amount of US$7,500,000 (collectively, the "Second Debenture") and the Debenture. Both the First Debenture and the Second Debenture also do not bear interest and the principal amount thereof is also convertible into fully paid and non-assessable Common Shares at a conversion price of Cdn.$0.45 per share. The First Debenture matures on June 30, 2016 and the Second Debenture matures on June 30, 2017. Assuming the conversion in full of the principal amount of the Debenture, the First Debenture and the Second Debenture, Sentient IV would acquire control over a maximum of 130,609,799 Common Shares (including the 293,340 Common Shares referred to above). These combined holdings would represent approximately 92.18% of the outstanding Common Shares, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the full conversion of the Debenture, the First Debenture and the Second Debenture only.
Sentient IV acquired the Debenture for investment purposes only and not with a view to materially affecting control of Era Resources.
Sentient IV relied under section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus and Registration Exemptions for the purchase of the Debenture as Sentient IV is an "accredited investor" under that Instrument.
