It is expected that the remainder of the net proceeds from the Offering, approximately $1,305,700, will be used for general corporate purposes and working capital.
The Offering is expected to close on or about May 26, 2020, or such other date as agreed between the Company and the Underwriters, and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the closing in escrow of the Acquisition and the receipt of all necessary regulatory and other approvals including the approval of the TSXV.
