Proceeds of the Offering will be utilized to further accelerate the Corporation's product development and sales growth plans as well as supplement its general working capital.
Blackline has aggressively invested in the creation of a broad portfolio of solutions for the Employee Safety Monitoring market place.

Each Unit issued pursuant to the Offering will be comprised of one common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share for a period of forty eight months following the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of $1.40 per Common Share.
In connection with the Offering, Blackline may pay 6% cash and 10% finders compensation warrants ("Compensation Warrants") on the gross proceeds realized by the Corporation from subscribers identified by certain arm's length finders. Each Compensation Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Unit at any time prior to the date that is twenty-four months following the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of $1.15 per Unit. The Warrants issuable on exercise of the Compensation Warrants will have the same terms and conditions as the Warrants described above.
