(the “Company”) entered into a Standby Equity Purchase Agreement, by and between the Company and Yorkville (as defined below) (the “SEPA”), pursuant to which the Company obtained the right, but not the obligation, subject to certain limitations and conditions, to issue and sell to YA II PN, Ltd. (“Yorkville”) common shares, without par value, of the Company (“Common Shares”), with a maximum aggregate value up to $65,000,000 (the “Commitment Amount”) for a period commencing on March 17, 2023 and ending on the earliest of (i) April 1, 2026, (ii) the date on which Yorkville shall have made payment of the full Commitment Amount and (iii) the date that the SEPA otherwise terminates in accordance with its terms.


On May 3, 2024, in connection with the delisting of the Common Shares from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), the Company and Yorkville entered into an amendment to the SEPA (the “Amendment”) pursuant to which certain provisions of the SEPA relating to requirements of the TSX were deleted or revised. Additionally, the Amendment removed certain limitations on the number of advances the Company is permitted to effect.


The above description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
