(TSX.V: ACU) (“Aurora”, the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Stifel GMP to act as sole agent in connection with a proposed best efforts overnight marketed private placement of units of the Company (the “Units”) for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of approximately C$3,000,000, at a price of C$0.25 per Unit (the “Treasury Offering”). Each Unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company (each, a “Common Share”) and one-half common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a “Warrant”) of the Company.

The Warrants shall be callable by the Company, at the discretion of the Company, should the daily volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange exceed C$0.50 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, at any time during the term of the Warrants (“Call Trigger”). Following a Call Trigger, the Company may give notice in writing (“Call Notice”) to the holders of Warrants that any Warrant that remains unexercised by the holder thereof shall expire 30 days following the date on which the Call Notice is given.
The Company will grant the Agent an option (the “Agent’s Option”) to increase the size of the Offering by up to an additional 15% of the Units sold under the Offering, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time up to 48 hours prior to the Closing Date.
The net proceeds will be used for the market roll-out of the InsightTM data science product, called “Insight Essentials”, for solar cell production yield optimization and for general corporate purposes.
