The Series 2 Debenture, and any Common Shares issued upon conversion, are subject to a four month hold period that expires on March 18, 2014. The net proceeds from the offering of the Series 2 Debenture will be used for completion work at the Company’s Alexander project and for general working capital.
As Lang acquired a Series 2 Debenture in the principal amount of $550,000, upon completion of the private placement Lang will own or control 22,631,000 Common Shares or approximately 38.76% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares, Series 1 Debentures in the principal amount of $935,239.73, and Series 2 Debentures in the principal amount of $550,000. Assuming the conversion of the Series 1 Debentures and Series 2 Debentures, Lang would own or control 35,924,664 Common Shares or approximately 50.11% of the total issued and outstanding Common Shares. The purchase of the securities by Lang was made for investment purposes. Lang may increase or decrease its investment in Canadian Quantum depending on market conditions or any other relevant factors.
