The exercise price for each share purchase warrant will be $0.30 during term of the warrant. The warrants will be subject to accelerated conversion within 30 days of Sunridge providing notice of same to the holders of the warrants, in the event that the trading of the Sunridge shares closes at over $0.60 for 20 consecutive trading days.

Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, Sunridge will pay finders a fee consisting of 4% cash and 4% warrants from the proceeds of the proposed offerings.
