During the period ended September 30, 2020, the Company received a loan of $500,000 from National Brain Tumor Society (“NBTS”) and the National Foundation for Cancer Research to support VAL-083's preparation for participation in the Global Coalition for Adaptive Research's (“GCAR”) sponsored trial, Glioblastoma (“GBM”) Adaptive Global Innovative Learning Environment (“GBM AGILE”) study (the “NBTS Loan”). In relation to the NBTS Loan, the Company issued 125,000 share purchase warrants which are exercisable at a price of $1.09 per common share until June 19, 2025 and had been included in deferred financing costs as at June 30, 2020 (“NBTS Warrants”). The NBTS Loan is secured by a promissory note, accrues interest at a rate of 6% per annum and matures on June 19, 2021.

The NBTS Warrants were valued at $93,701 using a Black-Scholes valuation with a risk-free interest rate of 0.37%, a term of 5 years, a volatility of 89.82%, and a dividend rate of 0%.  The estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock at the date of measurement is based on the historical volatility of the Company. The risk-free interest rate is based on rates published by the government for bonds with a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the instrument at the valuation date. The expected term has been estimated using the remaining life of the warrant.
