The Agents will also receive broker warrants in a number equal to 7% of the number of Units sold under the Offering (including pursuant to any exercise of the Agents’ Option). Each broker warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Common Share at a price of C$0.18 per share for a period of two years from the closing date of the Offering.
Concurrent with the completion of the Offering, the Company is arranging to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to an additional 5,555,555 Units at a price of C$0.18 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to C$1,000,000 (the “Non-Brokered Offering”).
