Closing of Second Tranche of the Concurrent Financing
Further to the Corporation's press release dated October 15, 2021 (the "October Press Release"), Finco closed a second tranche of the Concurrent Financing (the "Second Tranche"), comprised of a non-brokered offering of an aggregate of 51,071 Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of C$89,374. The gross proceeds of the Second Tranche have been deposited in escrow pending the satisfaction of the escrow release conditions ("Escrow Release Conditions") described in the subscription receipt agreement entered into between Finco, Sabio, Beacon Securities Limited, Paradigm Capital Inc., and TSX Trust Company dated October 14, 2021 (the "Subscription Receipt Agreement"). In relation to both tranches of the Concurrent Financing, the Corporation has agreed to pay or issue to Zelos Capital Ltd ("Finder") (i) an aggregate finder's cash fee of $10,641, being 7% of the principal amount of Subscription Receipts issued to subscribers introduced by the Finder; and (ii) an aggregate of 6,080 warrants ("Finder's Warrants"), being that number of warrants to purchase shares in Finco equal to 7% of the principal amount of Subscription Receipts issued to subscribers introduced by the Finder, on closing of the Proposed Transaction. Each Finder's Warrant will be exchangeable into one warrant of the Resulting Issuer, which warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to subscribe for a Resulting Issuer Share at a price of $1.75 per share for a period of 24 months from the date of satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions.
Including both tranches, the Concurrent Financing was comprised of an aggregate of 3,799,252 Subscription Receipts at a price of C$1.75 per Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of C$6,648,691. Each Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive, without payment of any additional consideration and without further action on the part of each subscriber, subject to adjustment, one common share in the capital of Finco ("Finco Share") in accordance with the terms of the Subscription Receipt Agreement, upon the satisfaction or waiver of the Escrow Release Conditions. Upon the closing of the Proposed Transaction, the Finco Shares issued pursuant to the conversion of the Subscription Receipts will be automatically exchanged for shares of the Resulting Issuer pursuant to the definitive agreement with respect to the Proposed Transaction on a one-for-one basis.
