Senior management and directors of the Company subscribed for a total of approximately 750,000 shares, for aggregate subscription proceeds of about $190,000.
"We are extremely pleased with the success of our financing, and the fact that the Private Placement was over-subscribed is a testament to the strength of the Company's management team, the demand for innovative clean technology solutions like TMS, and capital market acceptance. The completion of this Private Placement is an important step in implementing our planned commercialization strategy," said Dr. James Young, interim CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
The common shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement are subject to a four month and one day hold period in Canada from the date of issuance that will expire on March 1, 2017.
The net proceeds of the Private Placement are planned to be used to advance the Company's Generation III reactor technology and for general working capital.

TMS is a microwave process developer specializing in clean emission, high-throughput industrial drying solutions. TMS's proprietary microwave beneficiation systems are being developed to specifically address the increasing environmental costs of a cornerstone of the global manufacturing and processing economy, industrial drying. The TMS process represents a unique, vertical microwave system that may be deployed to dry, re-size and transform industrial aggregates at high throughput capacity. TMS believes that its technology will allow for superior energy efficiency, process control and a clean emission profile, allowing TMS to deliver effective drying solutions that can fundamentally challenge the mainstream narrative that large-scale industry is incompatible with responsible, environmental policy.
