·      Interest: 12% per annum.

·      Conversion price: 3.99p.

·      Maturity Date: 30 June 2028.

·      Interest payable quarterly in arrears in cash starting from the last business day of the quarter in which the closing of the transaction occurs and on the last business day of each quarter thereafter.
