Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of CHS (a "Share") and a transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant is exercisable for a period of 24 months from the date it was issued (the "Exercise Period").

Additionally, the finders were issued an aggregate of 350,000 warrants expiring twenty-four months from the date of issuance (the "Finder Warrants").

The Insiders are each considered a "related party" (as such term is defined under MultilateralInstrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101")). The participation by the Insiders constitutes a related party transaction as defined under MI61-101. In aggregate, Insiders purchased 8,610,730 Units. Such participation is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of the Units acquired by the interested party, nor the consideration for the Units paid by such interested party, exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Private Placement as the participation therein by the Insiders was not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the Private Placement.
The securities issued under the Private Placement were offered by way of private placement in Canada and to certain subscribers in the United States, pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws. All securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a hold period that will expire on May 31, 2023.
