(CSE: TER) (OTCQX: TRSSF). The loan, announced October 2, 2019, included the purchase of 13,243 units, each of which was comprised of: (i) one unsecured convertible debenture of TerrAscend Canada with a principal amount of C$1,000 (the “debentures”), and (ii) 25.2 common share purchase warrants to purchase common shares of TerrAscend with an exercise price of C$6.49. Following the announcement of the loan and following discussions with the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”), Canopy Rivers, TerrAscend Canada, and TerrAscend decided to amend certain terms of the loan. Pursuant to the amended terms, the debentures have been converted into a C$13,243,000 loan agreement between Canopy Rivers and TerrAscend Canada. Interest on the principal amount advanced accrues at a rate of 6% per annum and all interest payments made are payable in cash by TerrAscend Canada. The loan is not convertible and is not guaranteed by TerrAscend. The principal amount matures on October 2, 2024 or an earlier date in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement. Additionally, TerrAscend has issued Canopy Rivers 2,225,714 common share purchase warrants that are exercisable upon the occurrence of certain triggering events, including (i) the amendment or removal of federal laws in the United States enabling the legal cultivation, distribution and possession of marijuana; and (ii) the stock exchange(s) on which securities of Canopy Rivers or its affiliates are listed permit the investment by Canopy Rivers in an entity that participates in the cultivation, distribution and possession of marijuana in the United States.
