Exercise of Over-Allotment Option
The Company also announces today that the syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. and including Cormark Securities Inc., Haywood Securities Inc. and PI Financial Corp.

The Over-Allotment Option was granted to the Underwriters in connection with the Company’s previously announced “bought deal” public offering, which included the sale of 18,750,000 units (“Units“) at a price of $2.40 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $45 million, which closed on February 4, 2021 (the “Offering“). Each Unit was comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (“Common Share“) and one-half of one Warrant, with each whole Warrant exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $3.10 until February 4, 2024. Under the terms of the Offering, the Underwriters were granted the Over-Allotment Option, which was exercisable in whole or in part for a period of 30 days following the closing date of the Offering, to purchase up to an additional 2,812,500 Units at price of $2.40 per Unit, or a combination of Common Shares and Warrants at a price of $2.30 and $0.20, respectively, provided that the total number of Common Shares and Warrants did not exceed 2,812,500 and 1,406,250, respectively, for market stabilization purposes and to cover over-allotments.
