Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering (the “Closing”) at an exercise price of $0.19 per Warrant Share.
The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of agents led by Beacon Securities Limited (the “Lead Agent”) and including Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., PI Financial Corp., Haywood Securities Inc., and Paradigm Capital Inc. (collectively with the Lead Agent, the “Agents”). On Closing the Company issued to the Agents an aggregate of 923,720 compensation warrants, with each compensation warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.12 per share for 36 months from the date of issuance.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for the manufacturing and deployment of the INEO Welcoming System to existing and future customers, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Offering was completed by way of a short-form prospectus filed in each of the Provinces of Canada, except Quebec. The securities offered have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release will not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor will there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
Concurrent with the Offering, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement of 2,500,000 Units at the Issue Price for gross proceeds of $300,000. Units sold under this non-brokered private placement are subject to statutory hold period of four-month and one day from the date of issuance.
