Each Finder Unit is comprised of one common share of enCore and onehalf of one common share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant, a "Finder's Unit Warrant"), with each Finder's Unit Warrant being exercisable into one common share of enCore for a period of three years from the original date of issuance of the Finder's Warrant, at a price of $0.10 per share. Both the Finder's Warrants and the Finder's Unit Warrants are subject to the Acceleration Provision.
