/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 18, 2022 /CNW/ – Mind Cure Health Inc. (CSE: MCUR) (OTCQB: MCURF) (FRA: 6MH) (“Mind Cure” or the “Company“) today announced that it has signed a binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI“) with LNG Energy Group Inc. (“LNG Energy“) pursuant to which the Company will acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities in the capital of LNG Energy by way of a business combination transaction (the “Transaction“).
The parties intend to enter into a definitive agreement in respect of the Transaction (the “Definitive Agreement“) by December 31, 2022, or such other date as may be agreed to by LNG Energy and the Company.
It is currently anticipated that the Transaction will be effected by way of a plan of arrangement pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia), or some other similar form of transaction, involving LNG Energy and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company which will constitute a reverse-takeover of the Company by LNG Energy. The resulting issuer that will exist upon completion of the Transaction (the “Resulting Issuer“) will change its business to that of LNG Energy. The Transaction is an arm’s length transaction and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2023.
If the Transaction is completed, it is anticipated that the board of directors of the Resulting Issuer shall be reconstituted to consist of such directors as LNG Energy and the Company shall determine, and certain officers of the Company shall resign and be replaced with officers appointed by the new board of directors.
Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including, among other items: the entering into of the Definitive Agreement; the consolidation of the Company’s existing share capital on a 2.4-for-1 basis or such other basis as mutually determined by LNG Energy and the Company (the “Consolidation“); the Company changing its name to “LNG Energy Group Inc.” or such other mutually determined name; completion of the Private Placements and Debt Financing (as described below); the acquisition by LNG of a company which holds operating oil and gas field properties in South America; receipt of all required shareholder, regulatory and third-party consents, including approval of the Transaction by the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE“) and the listing of the shares of the Resulting Issuer (“Resulting Issuer Shares“) on the CSE.
Pursuant to the Transaction, all outstanding securities of LNG will be exchanged by the holders thereof for identical securities of the Resulting Issuer on a post-Consolidation one-for-one basis.
Upon entering into the Definitive Agreement in respect of the Transaction, the Company intends to issue a further press release which will disclose the finalized terms of the Transaction.
Trading of the Mind Cure Shares has been halted as a result of the announcement of the Transaction and will remain halted pending the review of the Transaction by the CSE and satisfaction of conditions of the exchange for resumption. The Company expects that trading will not resume prior to the closing of the Transaction.
Debt and Equity Financing
Pursuant to the LOI, LNG Energy will complete the following arm’s length debt and equity (on a brokered basis) financings on terms satisfactory to the Company:

- a bank debt financing of between U.S.$65 million and U.S.$85 million (the “Debt Financing“).
In addition, the Company, either directly or indirectly through a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, or through a combination thereof, will complete a non-brokered private placement of units (“Units“) at a price of $0.05 per Unit comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of the Company (“Mind Cure Shares“) and up to one (1) Mind Cure Share purchase warrant with an exercise price of at least $0.07 per warrant for total proceeds of up to $4 million (the “Unit Private Placement” and, together with the Subscription Receipt Private Placement, the “Private Placements“), provided that the issue and exercise price of the securities comprising the Unit Private Placement may be such lower amount as agreed by the parties and acceptable to the CSE.
