The Agents' compensation consisted of a cash commission of 8% of the gross proceeds of the brokered private placement. The Agents were also issued compensation options exercisable to acquire that number of Units equal to 8% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the brokered private placement for a period of 12 months following closing at a price of $1.00 per Unit. In addition, the lead agent received a corporate finance fee of $25,000.
The Company paid cash finders' fees totaling $19,200 in respect of the non-brokered private placement.
The common shares and Warrants comprising the Units are subject to a hold period expiring August 5, 2008, as are any common shares issued on exercise of the Warrants (if exercised prior to the expiry of such hold period). The brokered and non-brokered private placement are subject to final TSX Venture Exchange approval.
