For its services, the Agent received a cash commission of $50,000, equal to 10% of the gross proceeds of the Offering as well as options to purchase up to 500,000 Common Shares at a price of $0.10 per Common Share, exercisable within five years from the listing of the Common Shares on the Exchange.
