Exhibit 10.22

 

NOTE CONVERSION AGREEMENT

 

This Note Conversion Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made and entered into as of October 30, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), by and among SNOW LAKE RESOURCES LTD., a Province of Manitoba, Canada corporation (the “Company”), and the holders of the Notes (as defined below) (each a “Noteholder” and collectively the “Noteholders”).

 

Recitals

 

A. In February 2021, the Company issued convertible debt (the “Notes”) to the Noteholders in a private placement (the “Offering”) for a total of C$865,263 (approximately US$697,356). The Notes contain a conversion feature permitting the Noteholders to convert the Notes into Common Shares of the Company at a conversion rate of the lesser of (i) C$1.25 (approximately US$1.01) per Common Share or (ii) a 20% discount to the issue price of any Common Shares issuable upon the sale or conversion of Offered Securities (defined as any equity or voting securities, or securities convertible into or exchangeable for equity or voting securities of the Company) issued in a Qualified Financing (defined as the sale of any Offered Securities, or the raising of any funds by way of equity sale, debt sale, or otherwise following the date of the Notes) (the “Conversion Shares”) and for each Conversion Share received, receive a warrant to purchase one-half of a Common Share (the “Conversion Warrants” and, together with the Conversion Shares, the “Conversion Securities”). Since the set price of C$1.25 (approximately US$1.01) will result in the issuance of more Conversion Securities, the Company has used such price in order to calculate the number of Conversion Securities issuable to each of the Noteholders.

 

B. In connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Public Offering”) and as a condition thereto, the Company is required to cause the conversion of the Notes into Conversion Securities. The Noteholders desire that the Company complete its Public Offering and are agreeing to convert the Notes to Conversion Securities at or promptly following the closing of the Public Offering.

 

Agreement

 

Now Therefore, in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants set forth herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1. Outstanding Notes. The Company and each Noteholder hereby acknowledge and agree that the Conversion Shares and Conversion Warrants set forth opposite such Noteholder’s name on Schedule 1 are accurately reflected and constitute the only Conversion Securities that such Noteholder is entitled to upon conversion of the Note held by such Noteholder.

 

2. Note Conversion. Effective as of date of the closing of the Public Offering (or, if requested by the underwriter for the Public Offering, at the time of the pricing of the Public Offering), the Company and the undersigned Noteholders each acknowledge and agree that (a) each Note shall be automatically converted into the Conversion Securities set forth on Schedule 1, and that by virtue of such conversion, the obligations of the Company under the Notes will have been satisfied in full, (b) October 31, 2021, shall be the final day on which interest accrues on the Notes, regardless of the actual date of the Note Conversion, and if the Public Offering does not close on or before January 1, 2022, then interest will begin to accrue again back from October 31 (c) the Notes, together with any side letters between the Noteholder and the Company or other related transaction documents (together the, “Note Documents”) are terminated, and all rights, title and interest arising under the Note Documents are hereby cancelled, released, extinguished and of no further force and effect, and (d) the cancellation, release and extinguishment of each Note is effective whether or not such Note is delivered to and cancelled by the Company. Each Note is hereby amended to the extent necessary to allow for such Note Conversion as contemplated by this Agreement.
