The Options held by each holder will be exercisable, from time to time, for a pro rata amount of the free trading portion of the WCU Shares, as such WCU Shares are released from escrow and become free trading pursuant to a TSXV Form 5D Value Securities Escrow Agreement dated January 15, 2021. Each Option will be non-transferable.
Finder’s fees may be payable to arm’s length parties that have introduced the Company to certain subscribers participating in the Offering.
