Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 14, 2020) - VALUE CAPITAL TRUST. (TSXV: VLU.P) ("Value"), a capital pool company as defined under the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV" or the "Exchange") policies, is pleased to announce that it has signed an arm's length binding letter agreement (the "Agreement") with neuroLytixs Inc. ("neuroLytixs") pursuant to which Value has agreed to acquire, directly or indirectly, all 36,363,636 issued and outstanding common shares of neuroLytixs at a price of $0.165 per share (the "Transaction"). neuroLytixs, a private Ontario corporation, possesses an exclusive technology license from the Lawson Health Research Institute. Lawson is a research institute and affiliate of the London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Care London and works in partnership with the University of Western Ontario and possesses patented technology that can detect a concussion via bio markers and molecules. The exclusive license permits neuroLytixs to commercialize Lawson's technology throughout Canada, the United States of America and all the countries within the European Union. Value intends that the acquisition of neuroLytixs will be Value's qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") pursuant to the policies of the TSXV. It is anticipated that the issuer resulting from the Transactions (the "Resulting Issuer") will list as a Tier 2 Life Sciences Issuer on the Exchange.
The proposed concurrent financing is a non-brokered private placement at a price of $0.165 per common share for gross proceeds of $850,000 and resulting in 5,151,515 common shares issued of neuroLytixs.
The Agreement was negotiated at arm's length and is effective as of April 20, 2020, and the Transaction is expected to close on or before June 30, 2020. The terms and conditions of the Agreement are expected to be superseded by a definitive agreement to be negotiated between the parties. Completion of the Transaction will be subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to, acceptance by the TSXV, completion of a concurrent financing for minimum gross proceeds $400,000 up to a maximum of $1,000,000, and receipt of all directors, shareholder and requisite regulatory approvals in respect of the Transaction and satisfactory due diligence investigations. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as currently proposed or at all.
Value will provide further details in respect of the Transaction in due course by way of a comprehensive news release. Trading in the units of Value will remain halted per Exchange Policy.
All information contained in this news release with respect to Value and neuroLytixs was supplied by the parties respectively, for inclusion herein, without independent review by the other party and each party and its directors and officers have relied on the other party for any information concerning the other party.
Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the management information circular or filing statement to be prepared in connection with the Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon.
