In connection with the term loan, Canadian Solar issued the lenders warrants to purchase up to 1,348,040 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $24.48 per share.

The warrants will expire two years from the date of the closing, on October 25, 2017. The term loan facility may be increased by up to an additional $100.0 million, subject to customary conditions.
