10.Term

 

(a)The period during which an Option may be exercised (the “Option Period”) shall be determined by the Board at the time the Option is granted, subject to any vesting limitations which may be imposed by the Board in its sole unfettered discretion at the time such Option is granted and Sections 12, 13 and 17 below, provided that:

(b)If the date on which an Option expires occurs during or within 10 business days after the last day of a Black-Out Period, the expiry date for the Option will be the last day of such 10 business day period.

 

11.Method of Exercise of Option

 

(a)Except as set forth in Sections 12, 13 and 17 below or as otherwise determined by the Board, no Option may be exercised unless the holder of such Option (or, in the case of an Option issued to a holding company, the holding company’s owner) is, at the time the Option is exercised, a director, officer, employee, consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be).

 

(b)Options that are otherwise exercisable in accordance with the terms thereof may be exercised in whole or in part from time to time.

 

(c)Any Participant (or his legal, personal representative) wishing to exercise an Option shall deliver to the Corporation:

 

(i)a written notice expressing the intention of such Participant (or his legal, personal representative) to exercise his Option and specifying the number of Shares in respect of which the Option is exercised; and

 

(ii)subject to Section 8(b), a cash payment, certified cheque or bank draft representing the full purchase price of the Shares in respect of which the Option is exercised.

 

(d)Upon the exercise of an Option as aforesaid, the Corporation shall use reasonable efforts to forthwith deliver, or cause the registrar and transfer agent of the Shares to deliver, to the relevant Participant (or his legal, personal representative) or to the order thereof, a certificate representing the aggregate number of fully paid and non-assessable Shares in respect of which the Option has been duly exercised. All Options granted under this Plan and Shares issued upon the exercise thereof shall bear any legend which may be required under applicable securities legislation.

 

 

 

 

– 7 –

 

(e)The issuance of Shares upon the exercise of Options must comply with all applicable securities laws. Without limiting the foregoing, any Shares issued upon exercise of Options granted pursuant to this Plan must be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), and all applicable state securities laws or must comply with the requirements of an exemption or exclusion therefrom. If the Shares issued upon exercise of Options are issued in reliance upon an exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, such Shares will be “restricted securities” (as such term is defined in Rule 144 under the U.S. Securities Act) and the certificate representing such Shares will bear a legend restricting the transfer of such securities under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Board may require that a Participant provide certain representations, warranties and certifications to the Corporation to satisfy the requirements of applicable securities laws, including without limitation, the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or exemptions or exclusions therefrom.

 

12.Ceasing to be a Director, Officer, Employee or Consultant

 

(a)Subject to Section 17, if any Participant shall cease to hold the position or positions as director, officer, employee or consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be) for any reason other than being dismissed from his office or employment for Cause, death or permanent disability, his Option will terminate at 6:00 p.m. (Halifax time) on the earlier of the date of the expiration of the Option Period and 90 days after the date such Participant ceases to hold the position or positions as director, officer, employee or consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be). During this period, a Participant may exercise his Option to the extent he was entitled to at the date of such cessation. Options that had not vested on the date of such cessation shall be immediately cancelled.

 

(b)If any Participant shall cease to hold the position or positions as director, officer, employee or consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be) as a result of being dismissed from his office or employment for Cause or a Participant’s contract as a consultant being terminated before its normal termination date for Cause, including where a Participant resigns his office or employment or terminates his contract as a consultant after being requested to do so by the Corporation or its subsidiaries as an alternative to being dismissed or terminated by the Corporation or its subsidiaries for Cause, his Options shall immediately be cancelled and may not be exercised as of the termination or dismissal date.

 

(c)Neither the selection of any person as a Participant nor the granting of an Option to any Participant under this Plan shall: (i) confer upon such Participant any right to continue as a director, officer, employee or consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be); or (ii) be construed as a guarantee that the Participant will continue as a director, officer, employee or consultant of the Corporation or its subsidiaries (as the case may be).

(a)by the person or persons to whom the Participant’s rights under the Option shall pass by the Participant’s will or applicable law; and

 

(b)to the extent that he was entitled to exercise the Option as at the date of his death or permanent disability. Options that had not vested on the date of his death or permanent disability shall be immediately cancelled.

The proceeds from any sale of Shares issued upon the exercise of Options shall be added to the general funds of the Corporation and shall thereafter be used from time to time for such corporate purposes as the Board may determine and direct.

 

16.Adjustments

 

(a)The number of Shares subject to the Plan shall be increased or decreased proportionately in the event of the subdivision or consolidation of the outstanding Shares of the Corporation, and in any such event a corresponding adjustment shall be made to the number of Shares deliverable upon the exercise of any Option granted prior to such event without any change in the total price applicable to the unexercised portion of the Option, but with a corresponding adjustment in the price for each Share that may be acquired upon the exercise of the Option. In case the Corporation is reorganized or merged or consolidated or amalgamated with another corporation, appropriate provisions shall be made for the continuance of the Options outstanding under this Plan and to prevent any dilution or enlargement of the same.

 

(b)Adjustments under this Section 16 shall be made by the Board, whose determination as to what adjustments shall be made, and the extent thereof, shall be final, binding and conclusive.

19.Amendment and Termination of Plan

 

(a)The Board may, at any time, suspend or terminate this Plan. The Board may also, at any time, amend or revise the terms of this Plan subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory and shareholders approvals, provided that no such amendment or revision shall alter the terms of any Options theretofore granted under this Plan.

 

(b)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Board may make the following types of amendments to this Plan without seeking the approval of the shareholders of the Corporation:

(ix)the addition or modification of a cashless exercise feature, payable in cash or in securities, which provides for a full or partial deduction of the number of Shares reserved for issuance under this Plan;

 

(x)amendments necessary to suspend or terminate the Plan; and

 

(xi)any other amendment, whether fundamental or otherwise, not requiring shareholders’ approval under applicable laws.

No Option shall be granted to a U.S. Taxpayer unless the exercise price of such Option shall be not less than 100% of the fair market value of a Share on the date of grant of such Option (determined by the Board in a manner that satisfies the requirements of Section 409A of the U.S. Tax Code). It is the intention of the Corporation that no Option shall be “deferred compensation” subject to Section 409A of the U.S. Tax Code, unless and to the extent that the Board specifically determines otherwise, and the Plan and the terms and conditions of Options granted to U.S. Taxpayers shall be interpreted and administered accordingly.

Whenever used herein words importing the masculine gender shall include the feminine and neuter genders and vice versa.
