Private Placement


dynaCERT also announces that it has amended the terms and increased the maximum amount of the private placement that was previously announced on June 8, 2017 from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000. The Company expects to close the private placement within the next week. Each unit will be issued at $0.70 and will be comprised of one common share ("Common Share") in the capital of the Company and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant being exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $1.00 for a two-year period from the date of issuance. The warrants include an acceleration clause to the effect that if at any time after four months and one day following the issuance of the warrants, the closing trading price of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") is greater than $1.75 per Common Share for a period of ten consecutive trading days, then dynaCERT may give notice to the holder of the warrants of its intention to force the exercise of the warrants, following which the holder thereof shall have a period of 30 days to exercise the warrants, failing which the warrants will automatically expire.



Mr. Bertrand will be purchasing 334,000 units, Mr. Bertrand’s father (Victor, the founder of MEGA) will be purchasing 666,000 units and Mr. Bertrand’s brother, Vic, will be purchasing 285,000 units bringing their respective holdings to 1,234,000 Common Shares, 1,332,000 Common Shares and 345,000 Common Shares.

The proposed private placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals including the final approval of the Exchange. The Exchange has granted the Company an extension of up to 30 days to complete the private placement.


The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this private placement for research and development and general working capital purposes.

Jim Payne, President & CEO of dynaCERT, states, “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Mr. Bertrand to the dynaCERT Advisory Board. Mr. Bertrand brings vast knowledge in manufacturing, international markets and building brands.
