Pursuant to the terms of the purchase agreement, the total consideration payable by Loyalist for Uhak was $8.1-million. Of the amount paid to the vendor on closing, $5.3-million was paid in cash, and $2.8-million was paid through the issuance of 5,384,615 Loyalist common shares at a per-share price of 52 cents, with 4,230,769 of such shares to be held in escrow for up to 24 months following closing as security for certain defined postclosing adjustments.
