At the closing of the Offering, the Company may (i) pay to certain finders a cash commission up to 8.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering resulting from subscribers introduced by such finders, and (ii) issue to such finders Common Share purchase warrants (the “Finder Warrants”), exercisable for a period of 36 months at an exercise price of $0.06 following the closing of the Offering, to acquire in aggregate that number of Common Shares which is up to 8.0% of the number of Units sold under the Offering attributable to the finders.
The Offering is scheduled to close in one or more tranches with the final closing no later than November 16, 2023, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange.
