DENVER, Dec. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. (“Mydecine” or the “Company”) (NEO:MYCO) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA) a biotechnology company engineering the next wave of innovative medications and treatment protocols to directly address addiction and mental health, is pleased to announce that, further to its news release dated September 1, 2022, it has closed the sale of all of the issued and outstanding shares of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mindleap Health Inc. (“Mindleap”), to PanGenomic Health Inc. (“PanGenomic”), a company listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange (the “CSE”).
The sale of Mindleap is a significant step towards refocusing the Company’s resources on its primary strategy of discovering and developing innovative pharmaceutical psychedelic substances to meet the unmet needs of millions of patients worldwide.
“We are extremely proud of what we built with the Mindleap App”, said Josh Bartch, Chairman & CEO of Mydecine. “Mindleap fills a necessary void in mental health and gives users the tools they need to improve their overall health and wellbeing. The Mydecine team looks forward to watching the application flourish and grow and will provide support at every step of the way. We spoke with numerous parties when we made the decision to part ways with Mindleap, and ultimately we decided the team at PanGenomic shared the same vision and had the team and the expertise to take the application to the next level.”
“We are excited about the acquisition of Mindleap as it represents a strategic addition to our PanGenomic portfolio of subsidiary businesses”, said Maryam Marissen, President & CEO of PanGenomic. “We believe Mindleap’s technological know-how, mental health content library and marketing footprint will help us expand our reach to more users that align with PanGenomic’s Nara and PlantGx business strategies.”
PanGenomic acquired all of Mindleap’s outstanding shares for a purchase price of C$3,600,000, payable by the issuance of units (each a “Unit“) of PanGenomic at a price of C$0.20 per Unit. Each Unit was comprised of one Class A Common Share of PanGenomic (a “Common Share“) and one share purchase warrant to purchase one additional Common Share (a “Unit Warrant Share“) at a price of C$0.30 per Unit Warrant Share until December 8, 2024.
In support of the Transaction, the Company and PanGenomic entered into a transition services agreement whereby PanGenomic engaged Mydecine to assist in the transition, transfer, and integration of Mindleap’s technologies into PanGenomic’s technology platform (the “Services“) for two months. In return for the Services, PanGenomic will pay to Mydecine a consulting fee of C$100,000, payable on January 8, 2023.
Upon completion of the Transaction, Mydecine holds approximately 19.4% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.
