Finder’s fees in the aggregate amount of $84,470.39 in cash and 703,920 broker warrants (the “Broker Warrants“) were paid to a syndicate of arm’s-length finders, with the exception of $53,594.80 and 446,623 Broker Warrants paid to Florence Wealth Management Inc. (“Florence“). Raj Ravindran, CFO and Director of the Corporation, is the ultimate designated person and CEO of Florence. The Broker Warrants were issued on the same terms as the Warrants.
