As previously disclosed, on September 18, 2019, Alberton Acquisition Corporation (“Alberton”), upon receipt of the principal (the “Extension Funds”), issued an unsecured promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $1,148,800 (the “Extension Note”) to Global Nature Investment Holdings Limited (“Global Nature”), a company incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands, its registered assignees or successor in interest (the “Payee”). The Extension Note was issued in connection with a non-binding letter of intent entered into by and between Alberton and Global Nature on September 13, 2019, to consummate a potential business combination with Global Nature (the “LOI”).
