VERDUN, Québec and NEW YORK -- June 27, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Prime Blockchain Inc. (“Prime Blockchain” or the “Company”) announced that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) with Potbotics Inc. o/a RYAH (“RYAH”), a leading data aggregation and technology company focused on the global plant-based medical market. The LOI outlines the proposed terms and conditions by which Prime Blockchain and RYAH will effect a business combination that will result in a reverse takeover of Prime Blockchain by RYAH and its security holders (the “Proposed Transaction”).
RYAH has become a big data market leader by focusing on its core suite of products: RYAH dose measuring vaporizer and data aggregator, PotBot and RYAHMD. RYAH is a clinical-grade vaporizer able to capture the amount of vapor a patient inhales while collecting real-time strain data in conjunction with a patient’s dosing experience. PotBot is a market leading cannabinoid recommendation engine, and is able to recommend strains, educate patients on the use of cannabis as a medicine, and provide local business destinations for patients to find the product that would work best for their medical indication. RYAHMD empowers doctors with the tools to recommend plant-based strains, products and protocols, to schedule appointments, and to care for their patient population by leveraging RYAH’s AI powered data ecosystem, in an easy-to-use dashboard.
Greg Wagner, RYAH’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “This new Letter of Intent was executed for the purpose of accelerating our listing plans on the CSE and further reflects our commitment to provide liquidity, transparency and new opportunities to strategic partners, future investors and current investors alike.”
Terms of the Transaction
The Proposed Transaction will be structured as an amalgamation, arrangement, takeover bid, share purchase or other similar form of transaction or a series of transactions that have a similar effect, with Prime Blockchain directly or indirectly acquiring all outstanding securities of RYAH. The final structure for the Proposed Transaction is subject to satisfactory tax, corporate and securities law advice for both Prime Blockchain and RYAH.
Completion of the Proposed Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, which include receipt of all necessary securityholder and regulatory approvals, the execution of definitive transaction documents, and conditional approval of the listing of the shares of the resulting issuer (the “Resulting Issuer Shares”) on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”). The CSE has not yet reviewed the Proposed Transaction and listing of the Resulting Issuer Shares will be subject to meeting the CSE listing requirements.
In connection with the Proposed Transaction, the Company will be required to, among other things: (i) change its name to such name as RYAH instructs and that is acceptable to applicable regulatory authorities; (ii) consolidate its outstanding common shares such that the existing shareholders of the Company retain an aggregate of C$1.05 million in Resulting Issuer Shares; (iii) replace all directors and officers of the Company on closing of the Proposed Transaction with nominees of RYAH; and (iv) create a new class of super voting shares and of subordinate voting shares. A special meeting of Prime Blockchain shareholders to approve these and other matters relating to the Proposed Transaction will be called shortly, with further details to follow in a management information circular.
Further details of the Proposed Transaction will be included in a listing statement to be prepared and filed with the CSE, and in subsequent news releases and other public filings.
