The Purchase Price will be satisfied through the issuance of an aggregate of 55 million common shares in the capital of Revive at a deemed price of $0.05 per share.
Upon the execution of the LOI, Revive agreed to deposit an aggregate of 10 million common shares (the “Deposit Shares”) in the capital of Revive, for an aggregate consideration of $500,000, into escrow as a deposit of the Purchase Price. In the event that the Proposed Acquisition does not close, the Deposit Shares will be returned to Revive for cancellation.
