Pursuant to the Program, the Company is offering an inducement to each holder of Eligible Warrants (collectively, the "Warrant Holders") such that they may exercise their Eligible Warrants for a reduced price of $0.015 per common share, in lieu of their original exercise prices, during an early exercise period (the "Early Exercise Period").
The Early Exercise Period will commence on August 4, 2022, at 4.00 p.m. (Toronto time) and expire on September 2, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. (Toronto time) (the "Expiry Time"). Eligible Warrants that remain unexercised following the completion of the Early Exercise Period will continue to be exercisable for common shares on their original terms, including their original exercise prices, as such existed prior to the Program.
To be eligible for the Incentive Program, the holders of Eligible Warrants must contact the Company as soon as possible and prior to the Expiry Time, complete and deliver to the Company (i) their original Eligible Warrant Certificate(s), (ii) a completed Exercise Form in the form attached as a schedule to their Eligible Warrant Certificate(s), and (iii) payment for the full exercise price of such Eligible Warrants, calculated at the Program price of $0.015 per common share.
To the extent that holders of the Eligible Warrants take advantage of the opportunity to exercise their Eligible Warrants early under the Program, this will strengthen City View's current cash position. Proceeds received by the Company from the exercise of Eligible Warrants under the Program will be used for general working capital purposes.
Certain insiders of the Company (directors, officers and 10% shareholders) own an aggregate of 7,182,143 Eligible Warrants. As such, their participation in the Program is considered to be a "related party" transaction subject to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The Company intends to rely on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements provided under sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(a) of MI 61-101 on the basis that participation in the Program by insiders will not exceed 25% of the fair market value of the Company's market capitalization.
The terms of the Program have been accepted by the Canadian Securities Exchange.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 (the "1933 Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. Persons (as defined in the 1933 Act) unless registered under the 1933 Act and applicable state securities laws, or an exemption from such registration is available.
