Charles B. Wang, the Chairman of the Company, had originally committed to purchase CDN$1 million of units, but due to oversubscription instead purchased 2,334,500 units for CDN$466,900 and loaned the Company CDN$533,100 that, upon receipt of stockholder approval, shall be convertible to purchase 2,665,500 units.

The warrants that form part of the units are exercisable on a cashless basis and as such, if and when exercised, the Company will not receive any cash proceeds.
D&D Securities Inc., the agent for a portion of the subscriptions, received from the Company a cash commission of CDN$299,251 and 748,127 broker's warrants. Each broker's warrant is exercisable for one broker unit at US$0.21 at any time before the 30-month anniversary of the offering closing date. Each broker's unit consists of one share of common stock and one-half of a common stock purchase warrant, and each full warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of common stock at US$0.30 for 30 months following closing. The Company will also pay certain fees and expenses of the agent in connection with the private placement.
The net proceeds of over CDN$4,750,000 from the private placement will be used by the Company for general working capital purposes.
