The Purchasers have advanced 5% of the purchase price (or approximately $3.5 million) in the form of a non-refundable deposit, which was a condition to the effectiveness of the Purchase Agreement. As of September 30, 2019, deposits of approximately $2.2 million were received and recorded as a reduction in our investment in AMAK. The remainder of the deposits (approximately $1.3 million) were received subsequent to September 30, 2019.
The Purchase Agreement contains various representations, warranties and indemnity obligations of the Company and the Purchasers, including the release of the Company's guarantee as described in Note 18. The Purchase Agreement also contains certain termination rights of the Company, including if closing does not occur by November 25, 2019.
