Dundee Securities Ltd. (the "Agent") acted as agent on behalf of the Company to complete the Offering.
Each Unit comprises a convertible unsecured debenture (the "Debenture") of the Company in the principal amount of $1,000 and 2,380 common share purchase warrants (each, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at an exercise price of $0.30 per Warrant Share for a period of 36 months from closing, subject to receipt of any prior required regulatory and shareholder approvals. The Debentures will bear an interest rate of 7.5% per annum, payable semi-annually, and will mature and become payable on the date that is five years from the date of issuance (the "Maturity Date"). Subject to receipt of any prior required regulatory and shareholder approvals, the principal amount of the Debentures will be convertible on or before the Maturity Date (or the business day immediate preceding the date fixed for redemption, as described below), at the option of the holder, into common shares of the Company (each, a "Share") at a conversion rate of $0.21 per Share (the "Conversion Price"), subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events. In the event of a change of control transaction, the Company must either purchase the then outstanding Debentures or convert the Debentures into Shares at an adjusted Conversion Price.
From and after the third anniversary of the date of issuance, the Debentures will be redeemable at the option of the Company, provided that the weighted average closing price of the Shares during the 20 consecutive trading days ending five trading days preceding the date on which notice of redemption is given is not less than 130% of the Conversion Price. Subject to certain restrictions, the Company has the option to satisfy its obligation to repay the principal amount of the Debentures, in whole or in part, due at redemption or maturity in Shares.
In connection with the Offering, the Agent received a cash commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering.
The Debentures, Warrants and any Shares and Warrant Shares will be subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date the Units were issued.
Dundee Corporation, who beneficially owns approximately 18% of the outstanding common shares of the Company, purchased 8,800,000 Units under the Offering. The President and CEO of Dundee Corporation, Mr. Ned Goodman, is also a director of 360 VOX and the Agent is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dundee Corporation.
