Each Unit consists of one (1) common share in the capital stock of Quinsam (“Common Share”) and one-half (1/2) of one common share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of CAN$0.40 per Common Share until the date which is twenty-four (24) months following the closing date of the Offering, whereupon the Warrants will expire.

In addition, the Agents received 3,452,800 Agents’ warrants (the “Agents’ Warrants”) equal to 8.0% of the total number of Units sold pursuant to the Brokered Offering. Each Agents’ Warrant is exercisable into one Unit at an exercise price of CAN$0.25 at any time prior to the date that is thirty-six (36) months following the closing date of the Offering, whereupon the Agents’ Warrants will expire.
All securities issued or issuable pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period of four months and one day.
