The U.S. will provide added opportunity for the Company while we continue to gain a stronghold in Canada. XTM's overall growth strategy is both ambitious and responsible, and we are very excited about new prospects and added value for our shareholders."

T he Securities issued are subject to a four-month hold period under securities laws. XTM anticipates that the net proceeds of the Offering will be used for general working capital purposes and future strategic acquisitions.
