Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will provide up to C$40 million of secured debt financing (the “Loan”) with a three-year term and an annual interest rate of 12%, calculated monthly and payable quarterly after receipt of the sales license at PharmHouse’s initial production and processing facility.
