Secondly, Bilzerian is to enter arrangements with a creditor of the firm, from whom he will purchase C$20 million of currently outstanding convertible debentures from, which will then be settled with the company via equity issuances. In total, 200,000 proportionate voting shares are to be issued to Bilzerian in exchange for the debt settlement.
