THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.
VANCOUVER, CANADA, July 25, 2019 – WELL Health Technologies Corp. (TSX-V:WELL) (“WELL” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by GMP Securities L.P. (collectively, the “Underwriters”) for an offering on a bought deal private placement basis of 8,276,000 special warrants of the Company (the “Special Warrants”) at a price per Special Warrant of $1.45 for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $12.0 million (the “Offering”). The Company has also granted the Underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 15% of the base offering of Special Warrants, which option is exercisable by giving notice to the Company not less than 48-hours prior to the closing of the Offering. Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on August 13, 2019 or such other date as the Underwriters and the Company may agree.
Each Special Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to receive, upon voluntary exercise prior to, or deemed exercise on, the Automatic Exercise Date (as defined herein) and without payment of additional consideration, one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (each a “Share” and collectively the “Shares”).
The Company has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a receipt for a final short form prospectus qualifying the distribution of the Shares upon exercise of the Special Warrants (the “Qualification Condition”) on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date that is 60 days following closing of the Offering (the “Qualification Deadline”). If the Qualification Condition is not met before the Qualification Deadline, each holder shall be entitled to receive, without payment of additional consideration, 1.05 Shares per Special Warrant. Unless the Qualification Condition is met, securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a 4-month hold period from the date of issue.
The net proceeds of the Offering are expected to be used for future acquisitions, organic growth investments, working capital and general corporate purposes.
Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman & CEO, commented “We are encouraged by the investor support we have received for our strategy of acquiring, integrating and growing attractively-priced healthcare and technology investments, such as our recent transactions involving SleepWorks Medical and KAI Innovations. The acquisition pipeline remains robust across the clinical, software and healthcare-services segments as we seek to organize, innovate and digitize Canada’s fragmented healthcare system”.
The closing of the Offering is subject to the completion of formal documentation, including but not limited to, the execution of an underwriting agreement with the Underwriters in connection with the Offering and receipt of regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
