MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/17 -- Relevium Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RLV)(FRANKFURT: 6BX) (the "Company" or "Relevium") a consolidator of e-commerce assets in Health and Wellness is pleased to provide a corporate update on its recent acquisition of BioGanix and the closing of the final tranche o of the equity financing.
Final closing of the Equity Private Placement
The Company has completed the final tranche of the equity private placement as announced on February 22, 2017 with gross proceeds of $200,000 and issued 2,000,000 units at a price of $0.10 per Unit. Each unit is comprised of one common share and one common share purchase warrant; each warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 per share for a period of two years from the date of issuance. The Company raised a total gross debt and equity financing of $4,461,500.
The Company also announced that in addition to the participation other investors in this final tranche of its private placement included the subscriptions from two additional officers and directors of Relevium, namely: Aurelio Useche, CEO (1,250,000 Units), Andre Godin, Chairman (300,000 Units), which in addition to the previous participation of Michel Timperio, Director (100,000 Units) and Pierre Bertrand, Director (100,000 Units) represents an aggregate investment of $175,000. The foregoing subscriptions by each of the officers and directors are considered a "related party transaction" under Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (Quebec) ("Regulation 61-101") and the corresponding Policy 5.9 of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company relied on Sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Regulation 61-101, respectively, for exemptions from the formal valuation and minority approval requirements under Regulation 61-101, as neither the fair market value of the Units issued to the related parties, nor the amount of consideration paid therefor, exceeds 25% of the Company's market capitalization. A material change report in respect of the related party transactions was not filed at least 21 days in advance of the private placement, as the subscriptions from the related parties were not confirmed until immediately prior to the closing and the Company wished to close the offering on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
As a result of the foregoing issuances, the Company will have now 65,971,466 common shares issued and outstanding. All of the securities issued in connection with the BioGanix acquisition as well as the debt and equity financing are subject to a restricted period of four months and one day.
CEO update on the recent acquisition of BioGanix
As announced in a press release dated June 12, 2017, the Company completed the acquisition of BioGanix and it is currently operating the business under BGX E-Health LLC, a US based wholly-owned subsidiary of Relevium Technologies. In the first two weeks of operations, BGX E-Health has generated close to 200,000$ in sales revenues from its existing BioGanix brand of nutraceutical products.
Aurelio Useche, CEO of Relevium Technologies stated: "The addition of BioGanix is a stepping stone in our strategic plans to building a portfolio of e-commerce brands in the Health and Wellness space. In addition to expanding the current product offering of BioGanix through the introduction of new products, the Company plans to also launch parallel brands under BGX E-Health in order to target specific segments."
Mr. Useche continued: "In addition to focusing on the organic growth of the BioGanix brand and the launch of market specific sub-brands, we have now turned our attention to our acquisition pipeline. The company is currently in discussions and negotiations with several targets that fit the business model. The Company has initiated discussions with Nutraceutical and Cosmeceutical brands with the objective of consummating a binding transaction by the end of 2017."
