Financing:
The first tranche closing of the Offering consisted of 6,500,000 Units a price of $0.05 per Unit and raised total proceeds of $325,000, of which insiders purchased $172,500 of Units.  Each Unit consisted of one Common Share in the share capital of Boxxer and one Common Share purchase Warrant ("Warrant").   Each Warrant is exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.05 until five (5) years from the date of closing.  Each Warrant is subject to accelerated expiry provisions such that if any time after the completion of the Offering the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange is at least $0.10 per Common Share for 15 consecutive days, the Corporation may give notice to the holders that each warrant will expire 15 business days from the date of providing such notice.  The proceeds of the Unit Offering will be used primarily for general working capital purposes.  No finders fee was paid on this tranche of the private placement.  The Units issued in connection with this tranche of the Offering will be subject to a four month and 1 day hold period that expires on June 20, 2014.  It is anticipated that there may be a second tranche closing of the Offering later in February.
