The New External Financing would come in addition to the up to EUR 9 million of convertible notes, with share subscription warrants attached representing up to EUR 4.05 million of proceeds in case of exercise, provided by ESGO under Existing Issuance Agreement.

The commercial terms of the New External Financing that the Investor has committed are identical to those of the Existing Issuance Agreement, provided that the convertible notes will be issued in tranches of EUR 250,000 to EUR 300,000 each.
