The Corporation intends to use the proceeds of the Offering for corporate and general working capital purposes and to further develop the Corporation’s second facility located at 530 Manitou Drive, Kitchener, Ontario.
The Offering is scheduled to close in tranches, with the final closing expected to take place on or about January 10, 2020. Closing of each tranche of the Offering is subject to customary closing conditions, including, without limitation, receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
