|Derivative Liability [Abstract]|
The short-term convertible note issued to several lenders, disclosed in note 13(m)(n)(p)(q) above have conversion rights that are linked to the Company’s stock price, typically at a factor ranging from 70% to 75% of an average stock price over a period ranging from 15 to 30 days. The number of shares issuable upon conversion of these convertible notes is therefore not determinable until conversion takes place. In order to estimate the potential impact of the conversion of these convertible notes, we calculate what the expected gain or loss would amount to based on a Black Scholes valuation model which takes into account the following factors:
This expected gain or loss gives rise to a derivative liability which is recorded as a gain or loss in the statement of loss and comprehensive loss with a corresponding liability recorded on the balance sheet.
The value of the derivative financial liabilities above was re-assessed at February 29, 2020 and a total of $695,432 was charged to the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of loss and comprehensive loss. The value of the derivative liability will be re-assessed at each financial reporting period, with any movement thereon recorded in the statement of loss and comprehensive loss in the period in which it is incurred.
The following assumptions were used in the Black-Scholes valuation model:
The movement in derivative liability is as follows:
The entire disclosure for derivative instruments and hedging activities including, but not limited to, risk management strategies, non-hedging derivative instruments, assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and methodologies and assumptions used in determining the amounts.
