"This financing provides us the ability to enhance and grow our strategy of providing public market investors with exposure to the most exciting and fastest growing areas of crypto and blockchain technology."
The Offering was comprised of: (i) a brokered private placement of 17,157,345 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$15,441,610 and (ii) an issuer direct private placement of 620,555 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of CAD$558,500. The brokered offering was led by Stifel GMP on behalf of a syndicate of agents, including PowerOne Capital Markets Limited, Canaccord Genuity Corp., Eventus Capital Corp., M Partners Inc. and Richardson Wealth Limited (collectively, the " Agents "), and was conducted pursuant to the terms of an agency agreement dated as of the date of this release among the Company and the Agents. The gross proceeds of the Offering included proceeds raised from the exercise, in full, of the Agents' over-allotment option.
Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a " Share ") and one-half of one share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a " Warrant "). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Share at a price of CAD$1.15 per Share, subject to adjustment in certain events, until November 16, 2024.
