Certain subscribers under the foregoing offerings may be participating through an exemption contained in Multilateral CSA Notice 45-313 and the various corresponding blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions (the “Existing Shareholder Exemption”) or Multilateral CSA Notice 45-318 and various blanket orders and rules of participating jurisdictions (the “Investor Dealer Exemption”).
For subscribers utilizing the Existing Shareholder Exemption, the Offering is available to all shareholders of the Company as of September 28, 2020, (the “Record Date”) (and still are shareholders) who are eligible to participate under the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Any person who becomes a shareholder of the Company after the Record Date is not permitted to participate in the offerings using the Existing Shareholder Exemption but other exemptions may still be available to them. Shareholders who became shareholders after the record date should consult their professional advisors when completing their subscription form to ensure that they use the correct exemption.
There are conditions and restrictions when relying upon the Existing Shareholder Exemption, namely, the subscriber must: a) be a shareholder of the Company on the Record Date (and still are a shareholder), b) be purchasing the Units as a principal, i.e. for their own account and not for any other party, and c) may not purchase more than $15,000 value of securities from the Company in any twelve month period. There is one exception to the $15,000 subscription limit. In the event that a subscriber wants to purchase more than $15,000 value of securities then they may do so provided they have first received ‘suitability advice’ from a registered investment dealer and, in this case, subscribers will be asked to confirm the registered investment dealer’s identity and employer.
The proposed net proceeds received from the Offering after payment of commissions are intended to be used by the Company for the following purposes:
- $200,000 – $400,000 for the purchase of MiSensors Inventory;
- $100,000 – $200,000 for the purchase of MiFleet inventory to convert 2G to 4G devices;
- $100,000 – $200,000 for the purchase of marketing campaigns for all solutions; and
- up to $200,000 – Unallocated working capital.
If an offering is over-subscribed, it is possible that a shareholder’s subscription may not be accepted by the Company even though it is received. Additionally, in the event of an imbalance of large subscriptions compared to smaller subscriptions management of the Company reserves the right in its discretion to reduce large subscriptions in favour of smaller shareholder subscriptions.
If an offering is not fully subscribed or the over-allotment option is not fully exercised, then management of the Company will determine the allocation of net proceeds amongst the above purposes in the best interests of the Company. There may be circumstances however, where, for sound business reasons, a reallocation of funds may be necessary.
Subscribers utilizing the Existing Shareholder Exemption must reside in Canada. Existing shareholders resident in countries other than Canada will need to meet local jurisdiction requirements to participate.
Subscribers implementing the Investor Dealer Exemption must reside in one of the following jurisdictions: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.
