After giving effect to the Transaction, InCoR will hold 30,203,334 Common Shares, representing approximately 19.35% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Shares. InCoR also holds secured convertible debentures which, if fully converted into Common Shares, would represent an additional 22,083,332 Common Shares. Assuming the conversion in full of the secured convertible debentures and no additional issuances of Common Shares, after giving effect to the Transaction, InCoR would own or have control or direction over an aggregate of 52,286,666 Common Shares representing approximately 29.35% of the Company’s Common Shares.
The Common Shares are being acquired by InCoR in reliance on the “private agreement exemption” set out in subsection 4.2 of National Instrument 62-104 – Take-Over Bids and Issuer Bids (“NI 62-104”). The purchase of the Common Shares by InCoR is being made from not more than 5 persons in the aggregate, including persons located outside the local jurisdiction and the bid has not been made generally to security holders of the Common Shares of the Company. The ‘market price’ of the Common Shares as at the close of business on December 28, 2017, determined in accordance with subsection 1.11 of NI 62-104, is CDN $0.037 (the “Market Price”).
