Limited and Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (the "Agents"). In connection with the Offering, the Agents will be paid a cash commission equal to 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and they will be issued that number of non-transferable broker warrants exercisable for Common Shares equal to 7.0% of the number of Units sold in the Offering (in each case excluding any Units sold to certain excluded subscribers). The Company will also grant the Agents an over-allotment option to offer for sale that number of additional Units and/or Warrants equal to 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, exercisable at any time and from time to time on or before the date of Closing (the "Closing Date") or for a period of up to 30 days following the Closing Date.
The Company expects the Closing to occur on or about September 20, 2016. The Offering is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions, including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals (including, for certainty, the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX")). The Offering is to be effected in each of the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario by way of a prospectus supplement (the "Prospectus Supplement") to Titan's base shelf prospectus dated August 18, 2015. In addition, the Units and/or Warrants may also be offered for sale in the United States, by or through a United States registered broker-dealer appointed by the Agents as sub-agent, and in certain offshore jurisdictions, in each case under available exemptions from the prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities laws.
The net proceeds of the Offering (the "Net Proceeds") will be used to fund continued development work in connection with the Company's SPORT™ Surgical System, as well as for working capital and other general corporate purposes. Details as to the specific allocation of the Net Proceeds will be disclosed in the Prospectus Supplement.
The Common Shares are listed on the TSX under the symbol "TMD".
