Immediately, after the closing SLM will be a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of the resulting issuer and the holders of the SLM Shares will collectively exercise control over the resulting issuer.
Completion of the Qualifying Transaction is subject to fulfilling all conditions of the TSX-V, including but not limited to a concurrent non-brokered private placement of 2,278,636 units of SLM for gross proceeds of $250,650. Each unit will be offered at a price of $0.11 per unit and will consist of one SLM Share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant.
