Each Unit will comprise of one common share (a “Share”) and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).

The Board of Directors of Brigadier believes that it will be able to deliver more value to its shareholders by changing its industry focus. Included in its evaluation, management is exploring the identification of assets or a corporation to acquire in Colombia’s burgeoning cannabis industry. Grant Hall explains “Colombia is an established global cannabis flower and cannabis oil producer with an optimal climate, low costs and ideal geographical positioning for international markets. Cannabis flower production costs average CAD$0.35 per gram in Colombia as compared to over CAD$3.00 per gram in Canada”.
While a review of potential acquisitions and transactions within the cannabis sector in Colombia is ongoing, there can be no assurance that any transaction within this sector will be consummated or will receive the required regulatory or shareholder approvals.
The Offering will be made available by way of private placement exemptions in Canada and may be offered in other jurisdictions where they can be issued on a private placement basis, exempt from any prospectus, registration or other similar requirements. The Offering is subject to a number of conditions including receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
