The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about August 14, 2018 (the "Closing Date") and is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. Sarment has received conditional listing approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") for the listing of the Ordinary Shares being issued and sold pursuant to the Offering. Listing remains subject to Sarment fulfilling TSXV requirements. The Ordinary Shares are expected to commence trading on the TSXV under the symbol "SAIS".
