In addition, 13,627,300 Units were sold to accredited investors under the accredited investor exemption contained in National Instrument 45-106 – Prospectus Exemptions in all provinces of Canada, and other qualifying jurisdictions, including the United Statespursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the “1933 Act“), and applicable U.S. state securities laws.

Unless permitted under securities legislation, the securities underlying the Accredited Investor Units cannot be traded before September 10, 2024.

 

In connection with the Offering, the Agents received a cash commission of $525,982, a cash advisory fee of $48,000 and 2,889,388 non-transferable broker warrants. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price equal to the Offering Price, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments, until May 9, 2026.

 

To demonstrate continued support of the Company, certain directors, officers and other insiders of the Company and their affiliates participated in the Offering and acquired an aggregate of 2,515,000 Units for total gross proceeds of $503,000. Each subscription by a Related Party is considered a “related party transaction” within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions. The related party transactions are exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements under MI 61-101 in reliance upon the exemptions contained in Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, respectively, as the fair market value of the transaction, insofar as it involves the Related Parties, does not exceed 25% of the Company’s market capitalization. The Company did not file a material change report related to Offering more than 21 days before the expected closing of the Offering as required by MI 61-101 since the details of the participation by the Related Parties were not settled until shortly prior to the closing of the Offering and the Company wished to close on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
