(“Health Logic” or the “Company“) (TSXV: CHIP.H) (OTCPK: CHYPF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive arrangement agreement (the “Arrangement Agreement“) pursuant to which it will sell its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, My Health Logic Inc. (“My Health Logic“) to Marizyme, Inc. (“Marizyme“), a Nevada medical device company publicly-traded on the OTCQB (the “Transaction“). Under the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, Marizyme will receive all of the issued and outstanding shares of My Health Logic in exchange for 4,600,000 shares of common stock of Marizyme (“Marizyme Shares“).

Marizyme intends to pursue a listing on the NASDAQ Stock Market (“NASDAQ“) within the next twelve months.
Upon completion of the Transaction, the Company will continue to trade as a public entity on the NEX Board of the TSXV (“NEX“) and intends to pursue a financing to commence its search for new assets to develop and make an application to the TSXV for a reactivation to Tier 2 of the TSXV from the NEX.

Quote from CEO, David Barthel:
“We are very excited to have entered into the Arrangement Agreement, which represents a significant milestone for the Company and brings us one step closer to the anticipated sale of My Health Logic. I am proud of all the work done by the Health Logic team to date, and I look forward to bringing you more updates on the Transaction soon.”
- The Transaction is expected to provide for the continued advancement and growth of My Health Logic in the medical device marketplace;
- My Health Logic will benefit from Marizyme’s strong international presence, with products approved for sale in over 30 countries and a pathway to regulatory approval in the U.S.;
- The Transaction is anticipated to strengthen My Health Logic’s developmental pipeline and diversify shareholder risk by advancing multiple product platforms; and
- Synergies are anticipated through the overlap of talent and the expected FDA submissions of MATLOC 1 and DuraGraft.
Terms of the Transaction
The Transaction will be effected by way of a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “BCBCA“). Under the terms of the Arrangement Agreement, Marizyme will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of My Health Logic, being 100 issued common shares, and in exchange the Company will receive a total of 4,600,000 Marizyme Shares.
In connection with the plan of arrangement, Marizyme will issue 4,370,000 Marizyme Shares to the Company (“Initial Share Consideration“). Subsequently, Marizyme will issue 230,000 Marizyme Shares to the Company (“Holdback Share Consideration“). The Initial Share Consideration will immediately be distributed by the Company to the Company’s shareholders, with each of the Company’s shareholders (other than shareholders who have dissented pursuant to the provisions of the BCBCA) receiving such number of Marizyme Shares comprising the Initial Share Consideration in proportion to their pro rata share of total Company Shares issued and outstanding at such time. The Holdback Share Consideration will be administered and released to the Company in accordance with the terms of the Arrangement Agreement. Upon closing, My Health Logic will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marizyme.
The Arrangement Agreement provides that the Company is subject to non-solicitation provisions, but the Company may exercise its “fiduciary out” in respect of a superior proposal. If such an occasion occurs, the Arrangement Agreement provides that the Company will pay Marizyme $3,000,000 as liquidated damages and reimbursement of the expenses incurred by Marizyme in connection with the Transaction. In addition, two members of Health Logic will be appointed to the board of directors of Marizyme, to hold such position until the first annual general meeting of Marizyme that occurs following the closing of the Transaction. On closing of the transaction, David Barthel will be appointed Chief Executive Officer of Marizyme and will cease his position as Chief Executive Officer of the Company and Harrison Ross will become the interim CEO of Health Logic.
The Transaction is subject to, among other things, the approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, the approval of the NEX, and requires the approval of at least two-thirds of the votes cast by Company shareholders at the upcoming annual and special meeting of Company shareholders. Additional details of the Transaction will be provided to Company shareholders in an information circular expected to be mailed on November 16, 2021. It is currently anticipated that, subject to receipt of all regulatory, court, shareholder and other approvals, the Transaction will be completed by December 13, 2021.
The Transaction has been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of the Company. The Board of Directors of the Company unanimously recommends that Company shareholders vote in favour of the resolution to approve the Transaction. The Board of Directors of the Company has obtained a fairness opinion from Evans & Evans, Inc. (“Evans & Evans“) that states, subject to certain conditions, that the Transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the Company.
