ICP intends to use the net proceeds for working capital purposes. The securities issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period, which will expire on April 19, 2014.
The Company paid a cash fee equal to 8% of the amount raised by eligible finders in connection with certain subscribers under the Offering and issued 1,336,000 finder warrants to such finders.
