On December 27, 2018 , the Company settled loans in the aggregate amount of $300,000 from Scharfe Holdings Inc., a company owned and controlled by the Acquiror, in consideration for the issuance of a debenture (the "Debenture") in the principal amount $300,000 (the "Transaction"). Subject to adjustment, the Debenture is convertible, at the option of the holder, into common shares of the Company (each, a "Share") at a conversion price of $0.15 per Share. The Debenture matures twelve (12) months from the date of the closing of the Transaction and bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum.

Prior to the Transaction, the Acquiror directly and indirectly owned and controlled 6,242,938 Shares, which represented 8.15% of the issued and outstanding Shares as of December 27, 2018 , based on 76,598,286 Shares issued and outstanding as of such date.

Following the Transaction, the Acquiror directly and indirectly owned and controlled the following securities:

  • 6,242,938 Shares; and
  • a Debenture in the principal amount of $300,000 that may be converted for up to 2,000,000 Shares, assuming no interest is converted, at a conversion price equal to $0.15 per Share.
