Hampton is also pleased to announce the closing of the second tranche of a non-brokered private placement of unsecured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”) in the principal amount of $1,300,000. The closing of the second tranche is part of a larger offering of Debentures in the aggregate principal amount of up to CAD$6,000,000 (the “Offering”). The Debentures will mature five (5) years after the issue date (the “Maturity Date”) and will bear interest at the rate of 9.0% per annum, payable quarterly in arrears on the last day of March, June, September and December in each year until the Maturity Date. The first interest payment will be made at the end of the first calendar quarter following the closing date (the “Initial Interest Payment Date”) and will consist of interest accrued from and including the closing date to the Initial Interest Payment Date. Interest will be payable in cash only and will cease to accrue on the Maturity Date.

Upon conversion of the Debentures the holders of Debentures will receive cash payment of any interest which accrues from the most recent interest payment date to the date of conversion. The proceeds from the Offering will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The Debentures and any subordinate voting shares issued upon the conversion thereof are subject to a hold period expiring on the date that is four months and one day following the date of issuance of the Debentures, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
In connection with the closing of the second tranche of the Offering the Corporation paid a finders’ commission to a registrant consisting of a cash commission of $65,000 together with 102,500 warrants, each warrant exercisable to purchase one subordinate voting share of the Corporation at the price of $0.60 per share on or before the day that is three years from the date of issue of the warrants.
