The terms of the private-placement financing also allowed Mr. Friedland 30 days after the June 10, 2014, closing date to exercise his option to purchase an additional 2.5 million units, which became effective when the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in whole. Details of the financings can be found in Ivanhoe Mines' news releases dated May 20, 2014, and June 10, 2014.
