The Offering was completed in connection with the proposed business combination (the “Transaction“) between Jack Nathan and WVI previously announced in press releases of WVI dated December 23, 2019 and July 29, 2020, which transaction is intended to constitute WVI’s “Qualifying Transaction” pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV“) to ultimately form the resulting issuer (the “Resulting Issuer“) and the listing of the Resulting Issuer common shares (the “Resulting Issuer Common Shares“) on the TSXV.
The OfferingUnder the terms of the Offering and pursuant to an agency agreement (the “Agency Agreement“) dated July 31, 2020 among Jack Nathan, WVI and the Agents, Jack Nathan issued 11,296,211 Subscription Receipts at a price of $0.50 per Subscription Receipt (the “Offering Price“) for gross proceeds of approximately $5,684,105.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of Jack Nathan and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of Jack Nathan (each, a “Warrant Share”) at a price of $0.75 per Warrant Share for a period of two years following the closing date of the Concurrent Financing. If, for any consecutive 10 trading days following completion of the Transaction, the volume-weighted average price of the Resulting Issuer Common Shares is equal to or greater than $1.00, the Resulting Issuer may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders and, in such case, the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date of such notice.The gross proceeds of the Concurrent Financing (less the Agents’ expenses and 50% of the Commission, as defined below) will be held in escrow pending the satisfaction of the Release Conditions. In the event the event the Transaction does not occur on or before November 28, 2020, the gross proceeds shall be returned to the purchasers pro rata without any deduction or interest, and the Subscription Receipts shall be automatically cancelled.Upon completion of the Transaction, each common share and Warrant of Jack Nathan issued pursuant to the Concurrent Financing will automatically be exchanged for one Resulting Issuer Common Share and one warrant of the Resulting Issuer (such warrants to have the same terms as the Warrants) resulting in an effective issue price of $0.50 per Resulting Issuer Common Share.Pursuant to the Agency Agreement, the Agents received a cash commission of approximately $153,933 on closing of the Offering. The Agents will receive a further commission of approximately $153,933 upon conversion of the Subscription Receipts.
