TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/04/14 -- Leo Acquisitions Corp. (TSX VENTURE:LEQ.H) ("Leo") is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (the "LOI") with Axcelon Biopolymers Inc., a corporation existing under the laws of Ontario ("Axcelon"), which outlines the general terms and conditions pursuant to which Leo and Axcelon would be willing to complete a transaction that will result in a reverse take-over of Leo by the shareholders of Axcelon (the "Transaction"). The LOI was negotiated at arm's length and is effective as of May 30, 2014.
The LOI is to be superseded by a definitive merger, amalgamation or share exchange agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") to be signed on or before August 31, 2014 (or such other date as may be mutually agreed in writing between Leo and Axcelon). The Transaction is subject to requisite regulatory approval, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and standard closing conditions, including the approval of the directors of each of Leo and Axcelon of the Definitive Agreement and completion of due diligence investigations to the satisfaction of each of Leo and Axcelon, as well as the conditions described below. The legal structure for the Transaction will be confirmed after the parties have considered all applicable tax, securities law and accounting efficiencies, however, it is currently contemplated that the Transaction will be structured as a securities exchange.
Leo is incorporated under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) with its registered and head office in Toronto, Ontario. It is a capital pool company and intends for the Transaction to constitute its "Qualifying Transaction" as such term is defined in the policies of the TSXV. Leo is a "reporting issuer" in the provinces of Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Since the Transaction is not a non-arm's length transaction, Leo is not required to obtain shareholder approval for the Transaction. Trading in the common shares of Leo has been halted. It is unlikely that the common shares of Leo will resume trading until the Transaction is completed and approved by the TSXV.
Conditions to Transaction
Prior to completion of the Transaction (and as conditions of closing):
-- Axcelon must complete a private placement financing of common shares from treasury for minimum gross proceeds of not less than $2,000,000 and up to $6,000,000 (the "Offering") to fund capital expenditures, research and development, and general working capital. The terms and conditions of the Offering have not yet been determined and will be dependent on various factors, including market conditions. -- The parties will prepare a filing statement in accordance with the rules of the TSXV, outlining the terms of the Transaction. -- Axcelon and Leo will enter into a Definitive Agreement in respect to the Transaction on or before August 31, 2014. -- Axcelon will obtain the requisite shareholder approvals for the Transaction. -- All requisite regulatory approvals relating to the Transaction, including, without limitation, TSXV approval, will have been obtained.
The Proposed Transaction
Pre-Closing Capitalization of Leo
As of the date hereof, Leo has 7,240,500 common shares (the "Leo Shares") issued and outstanding and securities exercisable or exchangeable for, or convertible into, or other rights to acquire, an aggregate of 774,050 Leo Shares at an exercise price of $0.10 per Leo Share.
Pre-Closing Capitalization of Axcelon
As of the date hereof, Axcelon's authorized capital consists of an unlimited number of common shares ("Axcelon Shares"), of which 14,200,000 will be issued and outstanding. Axcelon has an aggregate of approximately $190,000 of shareholder loans outstanding (the "Axcelon Shareholder Loans") and an aggregate of $130,000 principal amount of convertible debt outstanding (the "Axcelon Convertible Loans"). The Axcelon Convertible Loans, including accrued interest, will be converted into Axcelon Shares prior to the completion of the Transaction at a price equal to a 10% discount to the subscription price of the Offering. Upon closing of the Transaction, the Axcelon Shareholder Loans will be evidenced by note agreements containing the following terms: a maturity date of no less than two years from the closing date of the Transaction, subject to acceleration in the event that the Resulting Issuer completes an equity or debt financing in excess of $3 million in gross proceeds.
Terms of the Transaction
Leo proposes to acquire all of the issued and outstanding Axcelon Shares pursuant to the terms of a Definitive Agreement. It is expected that each shareholder of Axcelon will receive in exchange for each Axcelon Share held (the "Exchange Ratio") that number of Leo Shares such that, immediately prior to giving effect to the conversion of the Axcelon Loans and the Offering, the current shareholders of Leo would hold no less than 10.8% of the common shares of the combined entity (the "Resulting Issuer") and the current shareholders of Axcelon would hold approximately 89.2% of the common shares of the Resulting Issuer, on a non-diluted basis.
An aggregate of $1 million worth of Leo Shares will be held in escrow and released to the current holders of Axcelon Shares on the Resulting Issuer meeting certain financing and performance milestones for a period ending in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
Immediately after the completion of the Transaction, (i) Axcelon would be a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of the Resulting Issuer, and (ii) the former Axcelon shareholders would collectively exercise control over the Resulting Issuer.
Axcelon was founded in 2001 in London, Ontario with a commitment to develop value-added, proprietary medical devices for human health applications.
