At the Meeting, shareholders approved the Stock Option Plan as amended. The Option Plan, as amended and restated, is attached to the Information Circular as Schedule “B”. The Stock Option Plan is a “fixed number” stock option plan. The maximum aggregate number of common shares that may be reserved for issuance under the Stock Option Plan is 60,025,975 Common Shares. The material terms of the Stock Option Plan are summarized in the Information Circular. On November 24, 2021, the TSX Venture Exchange adopted a new policy governing security based compensation (the “New Policy 4.4”). In accordance with the New Policy 4.4, a number of amendments have been made to the Stock Option Plan. These changes include amendments allowing option holders to exercise options on a “cashless exercise” or “net exercise” basis, as now expressly permitted by the New Policy 4.4. “Cashless exercise” is a method of exercising stock options in which a securities dealer loans funds to the option holder or sells the same shares as those underlying the option, prior to or in conjunction with the exercise of options, to allow the option holder to fund the exercise of some or all of their options. “Net exercise” is a method of option exercise under which the option holder does not make any payment to the issuer for the exercise of their options and receives on exercise a number of shares equal to the intrinsic value (current market price less the exercise price) of the option valued at the current market price. Under the New Policy 4.4, the current market price must be the 5-day volume weighted average trading price prior to option exercise. “Net exercise” may not be utilized by persons performing investor relations services.
