The Offering is comprised of 8,695,652 units (each, a “Unit”) at a price of $0.23 per Unit, for aggregate proceeds of $2,000,000.

Upon closing, Crescat Portfolio Management LLC (“Crescat”), will control over 6.1% of the outstanding common shares of the Company and has been provided with a pre-emptive right to participate in future offerings of Tombill in order to maintain the lower of its percentage ownership at the time of such offering or 4%.
