Each Unit will be comprised of one common share ("Common Share") of the Company and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the closing of the Offering at a price of $0.45 per Common Share. The Company may complete one or more additional tranches of the Offering. The first tranche of the Offering is expected to close on or before April 13, 2018, or on such other date as determined by the Company. The proceeds of the Offering will be used for general working capital purposes.
A portion of the Offering will be completed pursuant to Multilateral CSA Notice 45-318 — Prospectus Exemption for Certain Distributions through an Investment Dealer ("CSA 45-318") and the corresponding blanket orders and rule implementing CSA 45- 318 in the participating jurisdictions in respect thereof (collectively with CSA 45-318, the "Investment Dealer Exemption"). As at the date hereof, the Investment Dealer Exemption is available in each of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick. Pursuant to CSA 45-318, each subscriber relying on the Investment Dealer Exemption must obtain advice regarding the suitability of the investment from a registered investment dealer. In accordance with the requirements of CSA 45-318, there is no material fact or material change of the Company that has not been disclosed.
In addition to conducting the Offering pursuant to the Investment Dealer Exemption, the Offering will also be conducted pursuant to other available prospectus exemptions.
Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus a day from the date of issuance and the resale rules of applicable securities regulation.
The Company will pay a commission to certain eligible persons (the "Finders") equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and issue non-transferable broker warrants ("Broker Warrants") equal to 8% of the Units issued pursuant to the Offering. Each Broker Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Unit at the Issue Price for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the closing date of the Offering.
