The debenture holders will receive a monthly interest payment equal to 1.5% of the principal amount of the debentures, with such interest payment accruing from the closing date until the maturity date of the convertible debentures. The convertible debenture holders also received a bonus from the Corporation equal to 10% of the principal amount which is payable by the Corporation on the Maturity Date. The Corporation received an aggregate of CAD $1,505,000 from the Convertible Debenture financing.

In addition, the Company has agreed to amend the terms of the USD $1 million unsecured debenture issued to an arm's length holder on May 24, 2016, to make it convertible into common shares of the Company on the same terms as the secured debentures issued in May and June 2016. The outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest under the unsecured debenture are convertible by the holder into common shares of Perisson at a conversion price of $0.40 per share until May 24, 2017.

Barrel ("bbl") of oil equivalent ("boe") amounts may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. All boe conversions in this report are calculated using a conversion of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one equivalent barrel of oil (6 mcf=1 bbl) and is based on an energy conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.
