As quoted in the press release:
A total of 772,943 units of the Company (“Units”) were sold at a price of $18.60 per Unit (the “Issue Price”) for gross proceeds of C$14,376,740 (including the full exercise of the over-allotment option). The Offering was completed by a syndicate of underwriters led by Clarus Securities Inc. as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, and including Haywood Securities Inc. and INFOR Financial Inc. (the “Underwriters”). Each Unit was comprised of one common share of the Company (a “Unit Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of C$22.00 for a period of 24 months following the date hereof. The Units were offered and sold in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
In connection with the Offering, the Company also issued and sold on a concurrent, “bought deal” brokered private placement of 672,125 Units for re-sale to Aphria Inc. (TSX:APH) on the same terms and conditions as the Offering for gross proceeds of C$12,501,525 (the “Concurrent Private Placement”). In addition, the Underwriters exercised, in full, an option under the Concurrent Private Placement to acquire an additional 100,818 Units for additional gross proceeds of C$1,875,215 for resale to additional subscribers on an exempt basis. The combined gross proceeds from the Offering and the Concurrent Private Placement was C$28,753,480.
