Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering.
The Company has amended the over-allotment option to allow for purchases by the Underwriters of up to an additional 4,687,500 Units at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering. If this option is exercised in full, an additional approximately $2,250,000 will be raised pursuant to the Offering and the aggregate proceeds of the Offering will be approximately $17,250,000.
If, after the one-year anniversary of the closing of the Offering, the daily volume weighted average trading price of the shares on the TSX Venture Exchange for any 10 consecutive days equals or exceeds $0.96, the Company may, upon providing written notice to the holders of the Warrants, accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to the date that is 30 days following the date of such written notice.
All other terms of the Offering remain unchanged.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Units will be offered by way of an amended and restated final short form prospectus to be filed in all provinces of Canada, except Quebec and Newfoundland. The closing date of the Offering is scheduled to be on or about March 12, 2021 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the applicable securities regulatory authorities.
