("Xebec" or the "Corporation") (TSXV:XBC) is pleased to announce it has closed its previously announced bought deal offering, including the exercise in full of the Underwriters’ over-allotment option. A total of 8,280,000 units of Xebec (the "Units") were sold at a price of $1.40 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $11,592,000 (the "Offering"). The Offering was conducted by a syndicate of underwriters led by Desjardins Capital Markets and including Beacon Securities Ltd., Paradigm Capital Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp. and M Partners Inc.

Each Warrant is exercisable to acquire one additional Common Share (a “Warrant Share”) for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering at an exercise price of $1.85 per Warrant Share.
In connection with the Offering, the Corporation paid the Underwriters a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Offering, and compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 6% of the Units issued pursuant to the Offering. Each Compensation Option will entitle the Underwriters to purchase a Unit at an exercise price of $1.40 for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering.
