Prior to the closing of the Offering (as defined below), the syndicate of underwriters led by Mackie Research Capital Corporation and including National Bank Financial Inc. and Cormark Securities Inc. exercised their over-allotment option and purchased a total of 4,371,000 Units (the "Brokered Offering"), which together with an additional 146,000 Units sold directly by the Corporation on a non-brokered basis, resulted in a total of 4,517,000 Units being issued today for gross proceeds of $7,001,350 (collectively, with the Brokered Offering, the "Offering").
Each Unit consists of one common share of the Corporation (each, a "Common Share") and one-half (1/2) of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant").
