(FTMR) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an engagement letter dated September 6, 2017 (the “Engagement Letter”) with Mackie Research Capital Corporation (“Mackie”), whereby Mackie has agreed to act as sole agent in connection with a brokered private placement financing of a minimum of 750,000 common shares of the Company (each, a “Share”) and a maximum of 2,250,000 Shares to raise minimum gross proceeds of US$1,500,000 up to a maximum of US$4,500,000 to qualified investors (the “Offering”).

Pursuant to the terms of the Engagement Letter, Mackie has the option (the “Agent’s Option”) exercisable at any time up to and including Closing to increase the size of the Offering by up to 15%.
In consideration for the services under the Engagement Letter, and on the Closing, the Company has agreed to pay Mackie a commission equal to 8% of the gross proceeds arising from the Offering, including the gross proceeds arising from the exercise of any portion of the Agent’s Option, provided that with respect to proceeds raised from purchasers on a president’s list comprised of investors introduced by the Company (the “President’s List”), the commission will be 2% of such proceeds. Additionally, Mackie will receive non-transferable options (each, a “Compensation Option”) exercisable at any time up to 24 months from Closing to acquire Shares in an amount equal to 8% of the Shares issued under the Offering, including the exercise of any portion of the Agent’s Option, provided that the number of Compensation Options issued with respect to Shares sold to purchasers on the President’s List will be equal to 2%. The exercise price of the Compensation Options will be equal to the Offering Price. Additionally, upon Closing, the Company has agreed to pay Mackie a work fee of CDN$35,000 plus applicable taxes. In the event the Company undertakes one or more brokered or underwritten debt or equity financings within a period of two years from the Closing (each, a “Subsequent Financing”), the Company has agreed to pay Mackie a commission of 20% of the cash commission payable by the Company to the lead agent or lead underwriter, as applicable, with respect to each Subsequent Financing for such period.
Prior to completion of the Offering, the Company also intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to 500,000 Shares at the Offering Price for maximum gross proceeds of US$1,000,000 which offering will not be a part of the Offering and will not trigger any commissions or compensation under the Engagement Letter.
