The principal amount of the debentures is convertible at the option of the holder into Antibe common shares at a price of $0.22 per common share. The Debentures are secured by the assets of Antibe. Purchasers of the Debentures were issued an aggregate of 900,000 Warrants to purchase common shares of Antibe. Each Warrant will be exercisable for the purchase of one Antibe common share at a price of $0.31 and expires on October 15, 2018.
Bloom Burton and other agents participating in the private placement were paid an aggregate commission of 7% of the gross proceeds raised pursuant to the Private Placement and issued an aggregate of 143,182 Broker Warrants.
