In the final tranche, eSports issued the investors convertible promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $550,000 (including a 10% original issue discount) and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 916,667 shares of the company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share.

The notes accrue interest at a rate of 5% per annum and are initially convertible into shares of the company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.60 per share, subject to adjustment. The notes contain customary events of default and mature one year from the date of issuance.

Each investor was entitled to 100% warrant coverage and received the same number of warrants to purchase shares of common stock -- as is the number of shares of common stock initially issuable upon conversion of its note as of the date of issuance. The warrants are exercisable for a period of three years from the date of issuance at a price of $0.75 per share, subject to adjustment.
