The terms of the Note include the following:the sum of US$250,000 (the “Initial Consideration”) was advanced to the Company on closing, and $12,500 (the “Initial Original Issue Discount”) was retained by the Noteholder through an original issue discount (the “OID”) for expenses related to the Offering, and the issuance of 300,000 common shares as investment incentive shares;Additional Tranche Consideration, up to US$100,000 upon request by the Company, shall be advanced by the Noteholder in such amounts and at such date as the parties mutually agree, plus the prorated 5% OID to the Company on such amounts, and up to an additional 300,000 investment incentive shares assuming the maximum investment of not less than US$100,000 to the company;the Note bears interest at a one-time guaranteed rate of 10% on the principal sum of each funded tranche, and has a Maturity Date of seven and one half months from the effective date of each tranche funding (the “Maturity Date”);the principal amount of the Notes shall be convertible into common shares of the Company prior to the Maturity Date, at the option of the Noteholder, at a fixed conversion price of US$0.06 per Share (“Fixed Conversion Price”); andWe estimate the net proceeds from this financing, including any additional tranche consideration, after deducting any fees, expenses and issue discounts payable by us, are intended to be used for certain scaling operations of the Company, on improvement and development of its technology and software, to elevate the Company’s platform, and for general corporate and working capital purposes;The Principal Sum due to Noteholder is prorated based on the Consideration actually paid by Noteholder, plus the 5% OID, such that the Company is only required to repay the amount funded and the Company is not required to repay any unfunded portion of the Note. The Company may prepay any outstanding portion of the Note in cash prior to the Maturity Date;The Company granted a right of first refusal to the Noteholder during the term of the Note to invest, at similar or better terms to the Company, in an amount equal to or greater than any future capital or equity or debt financing by the Company. During the term of the Note, if the Company issues a convertible debt security with more favorable to such other holder than contained in this Note, and if such terms were not similarly provided to the Noteholder, then at the Noteholder’s option the revised terms shall apply to the terms of the Note; andIf the Note is not repaid or fully converted on or before the Maturity Date, then the Noteholder has the option to convert the remaining outstanding Principal Amount under the Note into common shares at the Variable Conversion Price equal to the lower of: (a) US$0.06 per share or (b) 65% of the lowest volume weighted average price of the Company’s common shares during the 10 consecutive trading days prior to the date on which Noteholder elects to convert all or part of the Note; provided, however, that any such discount to the Fixed Conversion Price is subject to compliance with applicable Canadian securities laws and the policies and rules of the Canadian Securities Exchange or such other stock exchange on which the securities of the Company are principally traded.The Company did not pay any finder’s fees or issue any warrants in connection with the Offering.The Note and any Shares issued upon conversion of the Note are subject to a statutory hold period expiring on the date that is four months and one day after the closing of the Offering.CEO Rich Wheeless commented, “This bridge financing is a first step towards a broader plan for the Company to continue growth, operational scaling and a higher profile in the near and longer term. This financing provides immediate capital for additional near term runway with the expansion we are beginning to undertake as planned. Given the current broader market volatility and environment that all companies are in, we are fortunate to be in the position that the company is in to provide needed services at this critical time, and to implement a plan to begin debuting in new markets. We look forward to providing further material updates as such milestones are achieved or pathways are determined.”The securities offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”) or any U.S. state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, United States persons absent registration or any applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
