The proceeds of the Offering will be used for general working capital purposes. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a hold period expiring on November 12, 2018.
Certain eligible persons (the "Finders") were issued 342,539 Common Shares equal to 8% of the proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the Company by such Finders, and also issued 305,205 broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") equal to 8% of the securities purchased by such subscribers. Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for a period of two (2) years from the closing of the Offering at a price of $0.15 per Common Shares.
Mr. Jennings, President, Chief Financial Officer and a director of the Company, participated in the Offering, purchasing 150,000 Common Shares for total consideration of $22,500. As a result of this purchase, Mr. Jennings beneficially owns 1,750,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 10.9% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares. Prior to this purchase, Mr. Jennings beneficially owned 1,600,000 Common Shares, representing approximately 16.1% of the Company's issued and outstanding Common Shares, prior to the completion of the Offering. The Common Shares were acquired for investment purposes. Mr. Jennings may acquire additional securities either on the open market or through private acquisitions or sell the securities either on the open market or through private dispositions in the future depending on market conditions, reformulation of plans and/or other relevant factors. A copy of the early warning report will be available on the Company's issuer profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Certain insiders of the Company acquired an aggregate of 668,332 Common Shares in connection with the transaction and their participation constitutes a "related party transaction" as defined in Multilateral Instrument 61-101 — Protection of Minority Securityholders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). The Company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(b) of MI 61-101, as the Common Shares are not listed on a specified market and the fair market value of the participation by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. A material change report in respect of this related party transaction will be filed by the Company but could not be filed at least 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering due to the fact that the Company wished to close the transaction as soon as practicable to enable it to use the proceeds of the Offering.
