Anahit currently has more than ten new products in development, including medical and over the counter health and wellness products. Additionally, through its partnership with the University of Guelph, Anahit is commercializing certain technology to make novel anti-inflammatory medications from cannabis.
Anahit has approximately 47,380,411 common shares ("Anahit Common Shares") issued and outstanding. In connection with the Transaction, Anahit intends to complete a private placement offering of up to $1,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). Details on the Private Placement, including the type and number of securities offered for issuance, the pricing of securities offered and the agent or agents engaged to broker the Private Placement, if any, will be provided in due course once available by way of news release.
The Corporation has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with Anahit dated December 31, 2019 (the "LOI") pursuant to which the Corporation and Anahit intend to complete a share purchase, plan of arrangement, amalgamation, three-cornered amalgamation or alternate structure to be determined, having regard to relevant tax, securities and other factors and potentially including a pre-closing reorganization of Anahit, to form a new company ("Newco") called "Anahit International Corp". Pursuant to the proposed Transaction, each issued and outstanding Anahit Common Share will be exchanged into 3.2 common shares of Newco ("Newco Common Share") on a 1:3.2 basis so that all of the issued and outstanding Anahit Common Shares will be exchanged for approximately 151,617,315 Newco Common Shares (not including Anahit Common Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement or other Anahit Common Shares reserved for issuance), and each unexercised Anahit Warrant and Anahit Option shall be exchanged for a replacement warrant or option issued by Newco with the same terms as the respective warrant.
It is intended that the Transaction, when completed, will constitute the Corporation's "Qualifying Transaction" in accordance with Policy 2.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").
