VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Breathtec Biomedical Inc. (CSE: BTH) (CNSX: BTH) (FRANKFURT: BTI) (OTCQB: BTHCF) (the “Company” or “Breathtec”) is pleased to announce that further to its press release of October 9, 2018, it has completed the acquisition (the “Transaction”) of all of the issued and outstanding securities of Nash Pharmaceuticals Inc., a private British Columbia company, (“Nash Pharma”) pursuant to the terms of a share exchange agreement dated October 5, 2018 (the “Definitive Agreement”) among the Company, Nash Pharma and the securityholders of Nash Pharma.
In consideration for the Transaction and pursuant to the terms of the Definitive Agreement, the Company issued an aggregate of 15,800,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Payment Shares”) pro rata to the holders of Nash Pharma common shares at a deemed price of $0.24 per Payment Share.
In addition, all outstanding unexercised warrants to acquire Nash Pharma common shares pursuant to outstanding Nash Pharma warrants (“Nash Pharma Warrants”) were cancelled. In consideration for such disposition, the holders of Nash Pharma Warrants received the right (a “Replacement Warrant”), to acquire one common share in the capital of Breathtec. The exercise price under each Replacement Warrant is equal to the exercise price under the particular Nash Pharma Warrant that was cancelled in consideration for such Replacement Warrant. The Company issued an aggregate of 14,800,000 Replacement Warrants.
“The acquisition of Nash Pharma marks a very important milestone for the Company,” said Christopher J. Moreau, CEO of Breathtec. “Nash Pharma has an exciting story to tell about its technology and its value driven and risk reduced approach to drug development through drug re-purposing.”
None of the securities to be issued pursuant to the Transaction have been or will be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “U.S. Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and any securities issued pursuant to the Transaction were issued in reliance upon available exemptions from such registration requirements pursuant to Rule 506(b) of Regulation D and/or Section 4(a)(2) of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable exemptions under state securities laws. In addition, the securities issued under an exemption from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act are “restricted securities” as defined under Rule 144(a)(3) of the U.S. Securities Act and contain the appropriate restrictive legend as required under the U.S. Securities Act.
