In connection with this Offering, the Corporation paid to finders, which were all at arm’s length with the Corporation, finders’ fees for a total of $42,012.18 in cash and issued 466,802 warrants, with each warrant entitling the holder to acquire one (1) Share of the Corporation at a price of $0.14 over a period of 24 months from the closing date.
All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to the applicable statutory hold period of four (4) months and one (1) day from the closing date. The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Two directors of the Corporation, namely Philippe Cloutier and Jeff Swinoga, each acquired, respectively, 100,000 and 111,111 Units in the Offering, and such transaction is considered to be a “related party transaction” as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”). The transaction is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as the Corporation is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and the fair market value of any Shares issued to or the consideration paid does not exceeded 25% of the Corporation’s market capitalization. Imperial did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the closing of the Offering, as the details of the aforementioned insiders’ participation had not been confirmed at that time.
