In connection with the Offering, the Company issued a total of 5,809,300 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit consisted of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant. Each whole share purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.40 per share, for a period of 3 years following the closing date of the Offering. In accordance with applicable securities laws, the securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a minimum four month hold period, expiring on February 12, 2014. The brokered private placement was led by Jacob Securities Inc. and included as part of the syndicate, Macquarie Private Wealth Inc. (the "Syndicate"), and resulted in the issuance of 302,204 broker warrants to the syndicate. Total cash compensation payable to the Syndicate was $94,401.13, a portion of this compensation was payable through the issuance of an additional 65,000 Units. In conjunction with the financing, a number of existing investors swapped their freely trading shares for the newly issued shares, which are subject to a statutory four month hold.
Magor intends to use the gross proceeds from the Offering to accelerate the growth opportunity associated with the Company's Aerus cloud-based video collaboration solutions, which will be fully launched this fall.
