The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for operating lease capital to support existing and new dealership leasing opportunities in Western Canada and Ontario.
Pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement, the Agent shall receive, upon Closing, (i) a cash commission equal to 8.0% of the aggregate gross proceeds received from the sale of the Units, subject to a reduced cash commission equal to 1.0% in respect of any sales of Units to purchasers on a president's list provided by the Company to the Agent and (ii) warrants (the "Agent's Warrants") equal to 6.0% of the Units sold in the Offering (including the Over-Allotment Option).
