The Offering will be conducted at a price of $0.30 per Unit.
Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Corporation (each a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant of the Corporation (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle its holder to acquire one Common Share by paying an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing the Offering.
Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. and Paradigm Capital Inc. will conduct the Offering on a commercially reasonable best efforts basis as the Corporation's agents for the Offering in each of the provinces of Canada, except Québec. The Units may also be offered for sale in the United States on a private placement basis pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") and applicable state laws.
Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about July 10, 2019. The Offering is subject to a number of conditions, including, without limitation, the entering into of a definitive agency agreement and receipt of all regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. There can be no assurance as to whether or when the Offering may be completed, or as to the actual size or terms of the Offering.
A copy of the preliminary prospectus (the "Preliminary Prospectus"), which was filed in each of the provinces of Canada, except Québec, contains important information relating to the Offering and the Units, and is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or by contacting Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Preliminary Prospectus is still subject to completion or amendment. There will not be any sale or any acceptance of an offer to buy the Units until a receipt for the final short form prospectus has been issued.
The securities described herein have not been, and will not be, registered under the U.S. Securities Act or any state securities laws, and accordingly, may not be offered or sold within the United States except in compliance with the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities requirements or pursuant to exemptions therefrom. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Corporation's securities to, or for the account or benefit of, persons in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
