(“DIAGNOS”, “the Corporation” or “we””) (TSX Venture: ADK), (DGNOF), a leader in early detection of critical health issues through the use of its FLAIRE platform based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), announces that it has completed the reorganization of its debt and capital structure initially announced on March 11, 2019.
Debt in the form of 10% secured convertible debentures (“Debentures”)
As announced on May 15, 2019, DIAGNOS proceeded with the redemption of 100% of the principal amount of the Debentures and the unpaid and accrued interest up to May 14, 2019.
Debt in the form of 10% unsecured convertible notes (“Notes”)
As announced on May 15, 2019, DIAGNOS proceeded with the redemption of 85% of the principal amount of the Notes and the unpaid and accrued interest up to May 14, 2019. As of today, the outstanding amount of Notes payable is $150,000 which will be due for repayment on (i) October 13, 2020, for $50,000 and (ii) October 23, 2020, for $100,000.
Further to the press release dated April 10, 2019 announcing the approval, by the shareholders of the Corporation, of a common share (“Share”) consolidation whereby ten (10) pre-consolidation Shares would result in one (1) post-consolidation, on April 24, 2019, the Shares of the Corporation began trading on a post-consolidation basis. As such, the number of outstanding Shares was divided by ten and the price of the Shares was multiplied by ten.
“I would like to personally thank our shareholders and former debt holders for their continuous support. The redemption of the Debentures and the Notes in the aggregate amount of $6.5 Million now allows DIAGNOS to present a much improved balance sheet which in turn, we strongly believe, will help us to bid on, and win, major health screening contracts,” said Mr. Georges Hébert, Chairman of the board of directors of DIAGNOS.
