The Company has issued 1,680,000 units at a price of $0.25, with each unit consisting of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price $0.35 per share for a period of twenty-four (24) months. The securities issued by Great Bear in connection with the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period as prescribed by applicable securities laws. The common share purchase warrants are subject to acceleration at the Company’s discretion subsequent to expiration of the initial hold period, in the event the Company’s common shares trade on a volume weighted average price (VWAP) basis of $0.45 or more for a period of ten consecutive trading days.
