Permex has granted the Agents an over-allotment option (the "Over-Allotment Option"), exercisable in whole or in part in the sole discretion of the Agents for a period of 60 days following the closing of the Offering, to purchase up to an additional number of Offered Shares as is equal to 15% of the aggregate number of Offered Shares issued pursuant to the Offering at the Offering price of $0.50 per share.
