Upon receipt of such notice, the holders of the Warrants will have 30 days to exercise their Warrants. Any Warrants which remain unexercised at the end of the Accelerated Exercise Period will automatically expire at that time. The Company may also exercise an overallotment option of up to 15% of the Units sold under the offering (being up to an additional 1.5 million units for additional proceeds of up to $225,000) to address any oversubscription of the offering, at any time prior to the closing of the offering.
