Core One signs LOI to sell certain assets to High Tower

2020-10-30 20:05 ET - News Release

Mr. Joel Shacker reports


Core One Labs Inc. has entered into a letter of intent with High Tower Capital Inc., dated effective Oct. 15, 2020, to sell certain assets and subsidiaries to High Tower for $3-million and for the assumption of $4,015,885 (U.S.) in related liabilities. High Tower will also assume all continuing obligations related to the assets (as defined below).

Core One has engaged in negotiations to sell off non-core assets of the business, allowing it to focus on entering the psychedelic space and the continued development of its CannaStrip technology. The additional capital generated from this sale will be used to further develop the thin strip technologies for use with psilocybin, as well as expanding the newly acquired psychedelic assets. In addition to the money coming in from the sale of the asset, this move also significantly reduces the monthly capital outlays the company had been paying, resulting in cash to be allocated to strategic initiatives designed at increasing visibility in the psychedelic space.

"Reducing Core One's capital outlays on non-core assets is essential to repositioning the company in the psychedelic space. I believe the psychedelic space is poised to become the next large pharmaceutical breakthrough in addressing both alcohol and opioid addiction, as well as anxiety and depression. The global market size for the treatment of these conditions is substantial, and the company is excited to be part of these developments. By adapting our existing technology to become an effective and safe delivery method for psilocybin, Core One has the ability to become a leader in this space," said Joel Shacker, chief executive officer of the company.

Terms of the LOI

In consideration for the acquisition of the assets, High Tower will complete a series of cash payments to the company totalling $3-million and will assume responsibility for all outstanding liabilities and obligations of Reveur Holdings Inc., Core, CSPA, LDS Agrotech Inc., LDS Scientific Inc., Agrotech LLC and LDS Development Corp. (all as defined below), including all continuing employment obligations and certain additional liabilities of the company associated with the assets.

The assets are composed of the following:

  • All of the issued and outstanding share capital of LDS Agrotech, a Nevada corporation, held by the company, which represents 75 per cent of the outstanding share capital of AgroCo;
  • All of the issued and outstanding share capital of LDS Scientific (SciCo), a Nevada corporation, held by the company, which represents 75 per cent of the outstanding share capital of SciCo;

Completion of the sale of the assets remains subject to a number of conditions, including the satisfactory completion of due diligence, receipt of any required regulatory approvals and the negotiation of definitive documentation. The sale of the assets cannot be completed until these conditions have been satisfied.

The company is at arm's length from High Tower and each of its shareholders. A success fee of $30,000, payable in common shares of the company, is expected to be paid to a third party consultant who will be assisting with the asset sale.
