Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]  


Convertible note issued to several lenders, disclosed in note 12(e), above had conversion rights that were linked to the Company’s stock price, at 75% of an average stock price over a period of 15 days prior to the date of conversion.  The number of shares issuable upon conversion of these convertible notes was therefore not determinable until conversion took place. The Company had determined that these conversion features met the requirements for classification as derivative liabilities and had measured their fair value using a Black Scholes valuation model which takes into account the following factors:


Historical share price volatility;


Maturity dates of the underlying securities being valued;


Risk free interest rates; and


Expected dividend policies of the Company.


The fair value of the derivative liabilities was initially recognized as a debt discount. In terms of amending agreements entered into with Morison Management, as disclosed on note 12(g) (iii) to (v), the terms of the notes were amended and the variable conversion price was amended to fixed conversion prices. The derivative liability was no longer applicable. The derivative liability was evaluated on November 17, 2021, the date of amendment, and the net value of the derivative liability at that date was included in the calculation of the loss on debt extinguishment, based on the beneficial conversion feature of the amended notes on November 17, 2021.


The following assumptions were used in the Black-Scholes valuation model:
