The offering is scheduled to close on or about Nov. 1.
The company has agreed to pay the agent a cash commission of 6% of the gross proceeds raised under the offering and issue broker warrants equal to 6% of the number of shares sold.
Each such broker warrant will entitle the agent to purchase one common share at the issue price for a period of 24 months following the closing of the offering. The agent will not be paid a commission or receive broker warrants in respect of any shares sold to certain investors and those purchasing under the company’s president’s list.
