Zoglo's Incredible Food Signs Binding MOU to Acquire European Plant-Based Food Company Monday Swiss

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2021 /CNW/ - Zoglo's Incredible Food Corp. (CSE: ZOG) ("Zoglo's" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, pursuant to completing extensive due diligence including visiting facilities in Europe, it has entered into a binding memorandum of understanding ("MOU") to acquire a 51% interest in Monday Swiss UK Ltd. ("Monday Swiss"), a leading European-based developer and manufacturer of innovative plant-based food alternatives (the "Proposed Acquisition"). The Company anticipates Monday Swiss' experience in new product development will help ensure that Zoglo's product portfolio continuously evolves to enable the Company to be a leader in the category in Canada and globally.

The MOU supersedes the non-binding letter of intent ("LOI") to acquire a 50.5% interest in Monday Swiss UK Ltd. previously announced on August 3, 2021.

Established in 2012, Monday Swiss is a leading producer of a wide variety of plant-based food products and technology, including the Veggie Day and Monday Swiss lines, with a dedicated state-of-the-art facility. Monday Swiss has invested over $3M in R&D over the past 5 years, servicing major customers such as Tesco, Holland & Barrett, Co-Op, and leading online grocery retailer, Ocado, with leading-edge whole-muscle plant-based technology.

The Proposed Acquisition of Monday Swiss will provide Zoglo's the capacity to expand globally and provide its customers with the next generation of plant-based foods and is expected to increase annual sales by up to $6 million CAD.

"Following extensive due diligence of Monday Swiss, we feel confident entering into a binding MOU to facilitate the acquisition of a world-class plant-based company with a production capacity of over 500,000 kilograms per month," said Anthony Morello, CEO of Zoglo's. "This acquisition creates a strong business and synergies for Zoglo's in Europe and the U.K. in conjunction with its current evolving business in Canada and the US."

The technology from Monday Swiss' facility is expected to provide Zoglo's with the next generation of meat analogues and the ability to bring industry leading texture, quality and innovation to North America.  The facility is certified BRC, Kosher OU, Halal, ISF and SMETA, so it is able to meet a wide range of consumer needs and customer demands.  It has four production lines which can produce frozen, chilled and ready-to-eat plant-based products and deliver complete packaging solutions.

Pursuant to the terms of the MOU, the Company will acquire a 51% interest in Monday Swiss in consideration for the issuance of 9,000,000 common shares of the Company (the "Payment Shares") at a deemed price of $0.30 per Payment Share and will pay $1,717,500 (the "Cash Payment").  The Payment Shares and Cash Payment will be made in three tranches beginning on the closing of the Proposed Acquisition (the "Closing Date") and ending in April, 2022. In addition, the Company will make a loan to Monday Swiss on the Closing Date in the amount of $1,102,500 to fund the development of Monday Swiss' business.

The Proposed Acquisition remains subject to certain closing conditions including, without limitation, (a) the receipt by the Company of any necessary corporate and regulatory approval; (b) entering into a definitive agreement in respect of the Proposed Acquisition (the "Definitive Agreement"); and (c) each party's representations and warranties in the Definitive Agreement being true and correct in all aspects as of the Closing Date, and each party meeting its terms and conditions and completing its covenants and obligations as contained therein. There can be no guarantees that the Proposed Acquisition will be completed as contemplated or at all.
