Additionally, the Warrants will be callable during the 24-month period, at the option of the Company, in the event that the 20-day volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common shares meets or exceeds $0.50 for ten consecutive trading days based on trades on the TSX Venture Exchange and Alternative Trading Systems. Subscribers will be notified of the call provision being triggered and will have a 30-day period to exercise the warrants.


Any securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months and one day from the date of issuance.  This Offering is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”).  The anticipated closing date of the Offering is April 30, 2024.

In the subscription agreement, shareholders will be required to certify the number of common shares of the Company held as of the record date and the total number of Units they wish to subscribe for. Each existing shareholder on the record date will be entitled to purchase that number of Units equal to at least their pro rata share based on the common shares owned on the record date, subject to a $4,000 minimum subscription. Any additional available Units will be allocated by the Company based on subscriptions received and Units available. Orders will be processed by the Company on a first come, first served basis such that it is possible that a subscription received from a shareholder may not be accepted by the Company if the Offering is over subscribed.  Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date shall not be entitled to participate in the Offering under the Existing Security Holders Exemptions.
