There is no minimum Offering. The Units will be comprised of one (1) common share ("Common Share") and one (1) share purchase warrant ("Warrant") of Voyageur.

Voyageur may pay a cash commission or finder's fee to qualified non-related parties of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering (up to $80,000) and issue broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") equal to up to 8% of the number of Units sold in the Offering (up to 800,000 Broker Warrants). Each Broker Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one [Common Share] at a price of $0.10 per Broker Warrant for a period of [one (1)] year from the date of issuance.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to advance the product roll out of Health Canada licensed products for sales in Canada.
Selling jurisdictions for the Offering will be in Canada in such provinces and territories where participating finders may specify and the Company agrees to. The Units may also be placed privately in the United States with certain qualified buyers.
The Offering is being offered to all of the existing shareholders of Voyageur who are permitted to subscribe pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption. This offer is open until June 24, 2021, or such other date or dates as the Company determines and one or more closings are expected to occur, with the first closing anticipated for on or about June 1, 2022.
Any existing shareholders interested in participating in the Offering should contact the Company pursuant to the contact information set forth below.
The Company set May 26, 2022, as the record date for determining existing shareholders entitled to subscribe for Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption. Subscribers purchasing Units under the Existing Shareholder Exemption will need to represent in writing that they meet certain requirements of the Existing Shareholder Exemption, including that they were, on or before the record date, a shareholder of the Company and still are a shareholder as at the closing date. The aggregate acquisition cost to a subscriber under the Existing Shareholder Exemption cannot exceed $15,000 unless that subscriber has obtained advice from a registered investment dealer regarding the suitability of the investment.
As the Company is also relying on the Exemption for Sales to Purchasers Advised by Investment Dealers, it confirms that there is no material fact or material change related to the Company which has not been generally disclosed. In addition to offering the Units pursuant to the Existing Shareholder Exemption and the Exemption for Sales to Purchasers Advised by Investment Dealers, the Units are also being offered pursuant to other available prospectus exemptions, including sales to accredited investors. Unless the Company determines to increase the gross proceeds of the Offering, if subscriptions received for the Offering based on all available exemptions exceed the maximum Offering amount of $1,000,000, Units will be allocated pro rata among all subscribers qualifying under all available exemptions.
Completion of the Offering is subject to regulatory approval including, but not limited to, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Common Shares, Warrants and Broker Warrants issued will be subject to a four month hold period from the date of the closing of the Offering.
