Each Unit consists of one Class B common share in the capital of the Company (each a "Common Share") and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable for one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.35 per Warrant for a period of 2 years.
