Assuming the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions and the conversion of the Subscription Receipts into Units of the Corporation, ZGML will have ownership of 393,220,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 66.63% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation on an undiluted basis (or 786,440,000 Common Shares or approximately 79.97% on a partially diluted basis, assuming exercise of all Warrants held by ZGML only).
If the Escrow Release Conditions are not satisfied, the Subscription Receipts acquired by ZGML will be cancelled and the cash consideration paid for such Subscription Receipts will be returned to ZGML.
The Subscription Receipts were acquired by ZGML for investment purposes. ZGML may, in the future, increase or decrease its ownership of securities of the Corporation, directly or indirectly, from time to time depending upon the business and prospects of the Corporation and future market conditions.
