As a result of the successful closing of the first tranche, we have the funding required to advance and expedite the product development. This financing is a major milestone for SHARC as it continues to build shareholder value and advance projects worldwide."
Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one (1) Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the Private Placement. In the event that the Company's common shares trade at a closing price on the Exchange of greater than $1.00 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days at any time after the closing date, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date hereafter referred to as the ("Eligible Acceleration Date") on which such notice is given by the Company.
These Common Shares and Warrants issued under the first tranche of the Private Placement will be subject to a four month and one day resale restriction expiring August 11, 2018.
