Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - September 12, 2017) - Luminor Medical Technologies Inc. (TSXV: LMT) ("Luminor Medical") is pleased to announce that it has amended the terms of its acquisition of Jamaica-BLU Ltd. ("J-BLU") which was previously announced on May 10, 2017 and that it plans to close up to $3,000,000 in a private placement financing (the "Financing") at a price of $0.15 per unit (a "Unit") with each Unit consisting of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $0.25 for a period of two years.
Under the amended terms, Luminor Medical will enter into an amalgamation agreement with J-BLU to acquire all the issued and outstanding shares of J-BLU by way of a three cornered amalgamation of J-BLU, Luminor Medical and a wholly owned subsidiary of Luminor Medical (the "Transaction"). J-BLU holds the exclusive Canadian licence of all current and future cannabis commercial products developed by Rise Research Inc. ("RISE"). RISE's cannabis commercial products are based on a patent pending formula, currently filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, to create precise cannabis-based formulations that may produce specifically targeted effects for various ailments including diabetes. Currently, RISE's portfolio consists of cannabis-based formulations which support patients with low libido called Jamaica blū and Jamaica pnk. Under the terms of the Transaction, Luminor Medical will issue 9,500,000 common shares to the shareholders of J-BLU and pay $200,000 to RISE for intellectual property access. The Transaction is an arms length transaction. J-BLU is a newly formed entity and, except for the acquisition of the Licence, it has no operating history or financial transactions. Other than the Licence, J-BLU has no other material assets or liabilities. On closing of the Transaction, all officers and directors of J-BLU will resign, except Anton Mattadeen who will remain as a director of J-BLU.
On closing of the acquisition, Anton Mattadeen will join the Board of Directors of Luminor Medical. Mr. Mattadeen is an entrepreneur, inventor, and technology & communications professional who brings over thirty years of experience managing initiatives for Fortune 100 companies like IBM and Sony, as well as successful ventures from the technology startup world. For the past five years he has been involved in the development of strategic initiatives that utilize chemical science and communication and technology protocols to develop and bring new consumer products to the emerging medical cannabis marketplace. Mr. Mattadeen has been the CEO of RISE Research Inc. since September 2015.
Upon receiving approval from the TSX Venture Exchange, Luminor Medical plans to close the initial tranche of the Financing through the issuance of 14,996,132 Units for gross proceeds of $2,249,419.80. The funds from the Financing will be held in escrow until the Transaction is closed. Once closed, approximately $1,000,000 of the proceeds from the Financing will be used to start up the J-BLU operations with the remaining funds being used for working capital purposes and the company's Scout DS® operations. The Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to TSXV acceptance. There can be no assurance that the Transaction with J-BLU will be completed as proposed or at all.
