“The offering will be priced in the context of the market with terms, including price per share, to be determined at the time of entering into an underwriting agreement with the underwriters.”
The company added that it would grant the underwriters an over-allotment option to buy up to an additional 15 percent of the total number of Class A Shares to be offered pursuant to the bid, exercisable for a period of 30 days from the date of the closing of the offer.
The offer is subject to the completion of a satisfactory subscription agreement with the underwriters, which will include customary closing conditions, including the listing of Nasdaq and TSX Class A shares.
