NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Alliance MMA Announces $5.5 Million Private Placement
Alliance MMA, Inc. (AMMA) announced it has sold for cash $5.5 million of its newly designated Series A convertible preferred stock and warrants. Additionally, the AMMA directors and note holders have agreed to convert an aggregate of approximately $650,000 of existing debt and accrued interest into the Series A convertible preferred stock placement. Further, SCWorx has purchased an additional $500,000 convertible note bringing the aggregate notes purchased to $1,250,000, of which $1,025,000 has been funded. In addition, AMMA and SCWorx have amended the Share Exchange Agreement to fix the exchange ratio so that 100,000,000 AMMA shares will be issued in connection with the acquisition. This fixed exchange ratio is based upon an agreed value per AMMA share of $0.50 and an agreed SCWorx enterprise value of $50 million.
“The completion of the preferred stock placement does a number of positive things for the Company. Not only does it position the Company to continue to maintain its Nasdaq listing but also allows us to complete the acquisition of SCWorx”, said John Price, President and CFO. Price added, “the completion of this funding evidences investors’ confidence in the fundamentals of SCWorx’s SaaS based business model, in which hospitals are contracted under three to five year software license agreements. These contracts result in predictable recurring revenue and allow management to leverage the existing SCWorx infrastructure to improve margins and operating cash flows. It is our expectation that SCWorx will continue its strong revenue growth over the next several years as it signs new accounts to long term contracts, adding new additional recurring revenue to its existing base of clients, and develops additional new feature modules for its software platform.” SCWorx is a leading provider of data content and services related to the repair, normalization and interoperability of information for healthcare providers, as well as big data analytics for the healthcare industry.
Alliance intends to use the net proceeds from the $5.5 million preferred stock private placement to provide working capital and fund the operations of SCWorx. The funds received in the preferred stock private placement will be available to the company upon completion of the SCWorx acquisition.
The securities sold for cash in the private placement consist of 550,000 shares of Series A convertible preferred stock of the Company, with a stated value of $10.00 per share, which, subject to shareholder approval as required by Nasdaq rules, are convertible into shares of our common stock at an initial conversion price per share of $0.20 (subject to adjustment). In addition, each investor will receive a warrant to purchase a number of shares of common stock equal to 50% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock into which their Series A convertible preferred stock is initially convertible. The warrants will be exercisable for a five-year period and have an initial exercise price of $0.30 per share (subject to adjustment).
The $500,000 SCWorx convertible note, of which $275,000 has been funded, has an initial conversion price per share of $0.20 (subject to adjustment) and includes warrants to purchase a number of shares of common stock equal to 25% of the aggregate number of shares of common stock into which the note is initially convertible. The warrants will be exercisable for a five-year period and have an initial exercise price of $0.30 per share (subject to adjustment).
The Company filed its Preliminary Proxy Statement regarding the SCWorx acquisition and related transactions with the SEC on December 20, 2018. The Company will be holding a special meeting in lieu of annual meeting of stockholders as soon as practicable to approve the acquisition of SCWorx and the preferred stock financing, among other matters. The completion of the SCWorx acquisition is subject to satisfaction of a number of conditions, including stockholder approval. While management believes the shareholders will approve the acquisition, management can provide no assurance the proposal will be approved or that the acquisition will be consummated. If the stockholders of the Company do not approve the acquisition of SCWorx or if the company is delisted from the Nasdaq, the company is obligated to return the $5.5 million of proceeds of the preferred stock financing to the investors.
