The Offering is being offered to all of the existing holders of Common Shares who are permitted to subscribe pursuant to the Existing Security Holder Exemption. This offer is open until November 15, 2019 or such other date or dates as the Company and the Agent determines.
Any existing holders of Common Shares interested in participating in the Offering should contact the Company pursuant to the contact information set forth below.
The Company has set October 16, 2019 as the record date for determining existing holders of Common Shares entitled to subscribe for Units and/or Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Existing Security Holder Exemption. Subscribers purchasing Units and/or Flow-Through Shares under the Existing Security Holder Exemption will need to represent in writing that they meet certain requirements of the Existing Security Holder Exemption, including that they were, on or before the record date, a shareholder of the Company and still are a shareholder as at the closing date. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Security Holder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless that subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment.
As the Company is also relying on the Exemption for Sales to Purchasers Advised by Investment Dealers, it confirms that there is no material fact or material change related to the Company which has not been generally disclosed. In addition to offering the Units and/or Flow-Through Shares pursuant to the Existing Security Holder Exemption and to the Exemption for Sales to Purchasers Advised by Investment Dealers, the Units and/or Flow-Through Shares are also being offered pursuant to other available prospectus exemptions, including sales to accredited investors. Unless the Company determines to increase the gross proceeds of the Offering, if subscriptions received for the Offering based on all available exemptions exceed the maximum Offering amount of $2,250,000, Units and/or Flow-Through Shares will be allocated pro rata among all subscribers qualifying under all available exemptions.
Completion of the Offering is subject to regulatory approval including, but not limited to, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Common Shares, Flow-Through Shares and Warrants issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of the closing of the Offering.
