These Preferred Shares will have an annual dividend rate of 8% and will be convertible to units ("Units") at $0.10 CDN per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one Aloak Share and one Aloak Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one Aloak Share at an exercise price of $0.12 CDN per Aloak Share for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the Warrant.
