Short Form Offering Document Financing
Turquoise proposes to enter into an agency agreement with Wolverton Securities Ltd. ("Wolverton") in connection with a previously announced financing (the "Offering") to be completed by way of Short Form Offering Document in accordance with Exchange policies. The Offering will consist of 5,714,285 units (each a "Unit") of Turquoise at a price of $0.35 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,999,999.75.
Each Unit will continue to consist of one post-consolidation common share (each common share of Turquoise will be consolidated on the basis of one post-consolidation Turquoise common share for every 3 pre-consolidation Turquoise common shares prior to closing of the Transaction and Offering) of Turquoise and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder an additional post-consolidation common share of Turquoise at a price of $0.60 per post-consolidation common share for a period of 36 months from the closing date of the Offering. Turquoise will have the right to accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants if, at any time, the closing price of Turquoise's common shares is equal to, or greater than $0.70 for 15 consecutive trading days after the date that is four months and a day following the closing of the Offering. In the event of acceleration, the expiry date will be accelerated to a date that is 30 days after the date Turquoise gives notice to the Warrant holders that it has elected to exercise this acceleration right.
In consideration for its services under the Offering, Wolverton will receive a commission equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of any Units sold under the Offering. At the option of Wolverton, the commission may be paid in cash or by the issuance of Units or a combination thereof. Wolverton will also be granted a non-transferable option (the "Agent's Option") to purchase up to 10% of the number of Units sold under the Offering at an exercise price of $0.35 per Unit for a period of 5 years from the date of closing of the Offering. Each Unit will consist of one post-Consolidation common share of Turquoise and one-half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant (an "Agent Warrant"). The Agent's Warrants will be on the same terms as the Warrants. In addition, Wolverton will also receive a corporate finance fee of $40,000 plus GST (the "Corporate Finance Fee"), of which $15,000 has been paid. At the option of Wolverton, the balance of the Corporate Finance Fee may be paid in cash or by the issuance of Units or a combination thereof. Also, Turquoise has agreed to pay the expenses reasonably incurred by Wolverton in connection with the Offering.
The Offering is to be completed in conjunction with closing of the Transaction. The proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the development and marketing of Vigil's wireless sensor network and general working capital purposes.
The filing of the Short Form Offering Document with the Exchange will occur immediately after the issuance of this press release.
