Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one warrant to purchase a common share of the Company. Each whole warrant is exercisable for a period of 24 months from closing of the offering and will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share at $0.05 for the initial 12 months from closing and at $0.10 per share thereafter. The Company has the right to accelerate the expiry date of the warrants if the closing price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") exceeds $0.15 for 20 consecutive days on which ATG's shares trade. Net proceeds from the offering will be used to reduce indebtedness and for general working capital purposes.
The Company will pay a finder's fee to registrants consisting of a 4% cash commission and 4% compensation options, with each compensation option entitling the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.10 per share for one year. All securities issued under the offering will be subject to a four-month statutory hold period.
Completion of the offering is subject to TSXV approval. Approval of the private placement is being sought pursuant to the TSXV's Notice to Issuers dated August 17, 2012, regarding Temporary Relief from Certain Pricing Requirements.
