Each Special Warrant is convertible without payment of additional consideration by the subscriber into a unit (a "Unit") consisting of one common share of the Company (a "Share") and one share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional Share (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.11 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance of the Special Warrants.
Each Special Warrant is exercisable without payment of additional consideration for a Unit and shall be deemed to have been exercised on the earlier of (a) four months and one day from the closing date, and (a) three business days following the delivery to the subscriber of a prospectus supplement in compliance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
The Offering is available to accredited investors and all shareholders of the Company as at June 30, 2020 (the "Record Date") who are eligible to participate under the prospectus exemption set out in British Columbia Securities Commission BC Instrument 45-534 - Exemption from Prospectus Requirement for Certain Trades to Existing Security Holders or its equivalent in other Canadian jurisdictions (the "Existing Shareholder Exemption"). Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date is not permitted to participate in the Offering using the Existing Shareholder Exemption, but other exemptions may still be available to them. Shareholders who became shareholders after the Record Date should consult their professional advisors when completing their subscription form to ensure that they use the correct exemption.
There are conditions and restrictions when relying upon the Existing Shareholder Exemption, namely, the subscriber must: a) be a shareholder of the Company on the Record Date (and still be shareholder of the Company as at the time of the closing of the Offering), b) be purchasing the Units as a principal, i.e. for their own account and not for any other party, and c) purchasing not more than $15,000 value of securities from the Company in any twelve month period under the Existing Shareholder Exemption, unless such shareholder has first received a 'suitability advice' from a registered investment dealer.
The Company will prioritize the subscriptions under the Offering received from shareholders of the Company as at the Record Date over subscription from other subscribers. But, if the Offering is over-subscribed, it is possible that a shareholder's subscription may not be accepted by the Company even if it is received. There is no minimum amount that will be required to be raised pursuant to the Offering.
The Company will use the proceeds from the Offering for general working capital purposes.
In accordance with the requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, the Company confirms there is no material fact or material change related to the Corporation which has not been generally disclosed.
The Offering may be closed in one or more tranches as subscriptions are received. There is no minimum subscription amount. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to statutory hold periods in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
As part of the Offering, the Company is paying finders fees to registered investment dealers of 10% cash and 10% broker warrants to purchase units at $0.10 consisting one Share and one share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional Share at a price of $0.11 per Warrant Share for a period of 24 months from the date of exercise of the broker warrant.
The Offering will be exempt from prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities laws. The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
