Each Warrant will be exercisable to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.20 until May 1, 2018. If subscriptions received for the Offering based on all available exemptions exceed $225,000, Medallion may seek to increase the size of the Offering and obtain TSX Venture Exchange approval for such an increase.
