The Escrow Release Conditions includes the satisfaction of all conditions precedent to the completion of the Spin-Out as well as receipt of conditional approval for the listing of LUR’s class B common shares (the “ Common Shares ”) on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “ Listing ”).
The proceeds of the LUR Offering, net of 50% of the cash commission payable to the Agents and the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Agents, will be held in escrow and not released to LUR unless the Escrow Release Conditions are satisfied on or before February 28, 2022 (the date of satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions being, the “ Escrow Release Date ”). Following the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions, the net proceeds of the LUR Offering are expected to be used to fund the proposed exploration programs for the Moran Lake Project, the Central Mineral Belt Project and the Notakwanon Project as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.
