The warrants have a converison price of $1.00 per share for a period of 3 years from issuance. Any shares issued under the early conversion are subject to lockup for a period of 12 months from the date of issue.
The company currently expects the remaining $6.265 million in the early conversion option to be exercised by the end of June.
