The Units and Preferred Units were priced at $0.05 each.

As the result of the issuance of Preferred Units and Units, the Company has issued 14,550,000 common shares and 13,775,000 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrant").
As part of this Placement, Cymat has also issued 3,856,400 Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $192,820. Each Subscription Receipt will become a Preferred Unit upon approval by the Company's shareholders of the issuance of the securities underlying the Subscription Receipts. The Company intends to seek such shareholder approval at the annual shareholder meeting to be held on September 26, 2012. The Company intends to continue its fundraising efforts up to the date of the shareholder meeting.
Cymat develops innovative materials for industry. The company has worldwide rights, through patents and licenses, for producing Stabilized Aluminum Foam.
