("Cantor") as agent, pursuant to which the Company may, from time to time sell, through "at-the-market" offerings on the Nasdaq Capital Market or another existing trading market in the United States with Cantor as agent, such number of common shares as would have an aggregate offer price of up to US$50,000,000 subject to a limit of US$12,000,000 under the ATM Prospectus Supplement (as defined below).

The ATM Prospectus Supplement has been filed with securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada, other than Québec, and in the United States with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the offerings, if any, for preparations for future product launches, including the expected resubmission of an NDA for Brinavess® (vernakalant IV), business development opportunities and general corporate purposes. Additional information regarding the Sales Agreement is available in the ATM Prospectus Supplement.
