WHEREAS, the parties wish to amend the Note in accordance with the terms and conditions of this first amendment agreement (this “First Amendment Agreement”).
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual agreements contained in this Agreement and in the Note, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree, as follows:
1. DEFINITIONS. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein (including the recitals above) are used as defined in the Note.

Each of the Company and the Holder hereby acknowledge and agree that, as of the date of this First Amendment Agreement, there have been a total of $5,559,285.60 in redemptions of Principal (with 720,085 Common Shares being issued to the Holder) made in accordance with Section 4 of the Note, and accordingly pursuant to Section 4(c)(i) of the Note, further redemptions made in accordance with Section 4 of the Note from the date hereof through and including July 19, 2022 shall not exceed an additional $6,940,714.40 of Principal in aggregate.
3. TEMPORARY AMENDMENT.
(a) The amendments contemplated by this Section 3 of the First Amendment Agreement shall expire, and be of no further force or effect, at 11:59 p.m. on July 19, 2022 (i.e., one (1) year after the Issuance Date), and from and after that date the original terms of the Note shall apply.
(b) Subject to Section 3(a) above, as of the date hereof, the Note is hereby amended as follows:
(i) Section 4(b) of the Note is deleted in its entirety, and replaced with the following:
|“(b)||Redemption for Cash. Subject to the limitations provided herein and in Section 4(c)(i), on any Trading Day on which the closing price per Common Share quoted by the applicable Eligible Market was below US$2.20 on any ten (10) of the previous twenty (20) Trading Days, the Holder will have the right to elect to receive cash repayments on account of Principal and accrued Interest by giving notice in writing to the Company no less than fifteen (15) days in advance of such cash repayment, provided that at the time such notice is given, the aggregate amount of the cash repayment elections made by the Holder under this Section 4(b) in any given calendar month shall not exceed the amount equal to US$3,500,000 less the sum of all redemptions made by the Holder pursuant to Sections 4(c)(iii)(w), (x), and (z) in such calendar month. For greater certainty, if, on the date of the required cash repayment following a notice by the Holder made under this Section 4(b), the closing price per Common Share quoted by the applicable Eligible Market was not below US$2,20 on any ten (10) of the previous twenty (20) Trading Days, the cash repayment is still required to be made. Notwithstanding the foregoing cash repayments under this Section 4(b) shall be limited to an amount equal to $6,940,714.40, less (i) any redemptions made by the Company and Holder pursuant to sections 4(c)(iii)(w), (x), and (z) and less (ii) any previous cash repayments made by the Company.|

“(iii) In addition to the limitations provided for in Section 4(c)(i) and (ii), unless otherwise agreed to by the parties and subject to the rules and regulations of the Principal Market,
(w) from and after February 1, 2022, the Holder may redeem up to an aggregate amount of US$2,000,000 (the “Base Redemption Amount”) on any day during a calendar month at the Optional Redemption Price;
(x) from and after February 1, 2022, the Holder may redeem up to an additional US$1,500,000 (the “Additional Redemption Amount”) on any day during a calendar month provided that the price for any such redemptions shall be equal to the greater of (i) US$4.60 and (ii) an 8% discount to the 4-day VWAP (subject to adjustment as provided herein);
(y) it is acknowledged and agreed that no redemptions under the Note were made between November 23, 2021 and the date hereof, and the Company and the Holder have agreed that from the date hereof to January 31, 2022:
(A) the Holder may redeem up to US$4,000,000 (the “Make-Up Base Redemption Amount”) during that period, provided such redemptions occur at the Optional Redemption Price; and

(z) notwithstanding the foregoing, if the full amount of Base Redemption Amount, Additional Redemption Amount, Make-Up Base Redemption Amount or Make-Up Additional Redemption Amount in an applicable calendar month is not redeemed, the Holder may redeem the aggregate amount of the unused portion of the Base Redemption Amount, Additional Redemption Amount, Make-Up Base Redemption Amount or Make-Up Additional Redemption Amount at any time in the future;
(iv) The following definition of “4-day VWAP” is added to Section 32 of the Note:

(v) The definition of “Optional Redemption Price” in Section 32(cc) of the Note is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
““Optional Redemption Price” means, as of the date of determination, the greater of (i) a price per Common Share that is equal to an 8% discount to the 4-day VWAP and (ii) US$2.208, subject to adjustment as provided herein.”
(a) As of the date hereof, the Note is hereby amended as follows:
(i) Section 32(g) is deleted in its entirety, and replaced with the following:
