MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/12/17 -- Relevium Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RLV)(FRANKFURT: 6BX) (the "Company" or "Relevium"), a consolidator of e-commerce assets in Health and Wellness, announced on December 22, 2016 that it had executed a binding letter of intent (the "LOI") to acquire the assets of BioGanix Limited ("BGL"), a privately- held nutraceutical company based in Houston, Texas and focused on heart, brain, digestive health and joint support products sold through primarily through e-commerce platforms.
As disclosed in the December 22nd press release, the LOI is binding, but subject to the execution of a definitive purchase agreement, shareholder approvals from both companies and a financing to be announced via press release at a later time. The Company also disclosed this is an arm's length transaction and that the parties expect to sign a definitive agreement within the fourth week in January 2017 and close at the same time or shortly thereafter.
Following the issuance of the press release, the Company received instructions from the TSX Venture Exchange to halt trading in the common shares subject to the Company providing certain documents and clarifications. The Company is providing the exchange with the required information relating to BGL as it becomes available and is assisting the exchange in its review of the transaction, including whether or not the BGL transaction would constitute a "reverse takeover" (RTO). The Company does not believe that the transaction will result in an RTO.
Pursuant to the LOI, Relevium will be acquiring the assets of BGL, including inventories, e-commerce platforms, logistics platforms and marketing software, trade names, trade-marks, trade secrets, licenses, inventions and technology relating to the entire current product line and pipeline of products in development. The transaction excludes all current and future liabilities. The aggregate purchase price of US$4.25 million is comprised of US$2.7 million in cash and a US$1.55 million two-year note carrying a yearly interest rate of 8% payable quarterly. The note will contain a conversion clause allowing the holder to convert the principal into common shares at a conversion price of CDN$0.1396, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Relevium's President and CEO, Aurelio Useche, stated: "This is a key strategic transaction for the Company and our team will continue to work diligently through all of the requirements and requests made by the TSX Venture Exchange in addition to securing the financing to ensure a smooth process and timely closing."
Trading in the Company's common shares is expected to remain halted pending satisfaction of the requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The transaction was introduced to the Company by an arm's length party and will be subject to a finder's fee in accordance with the guidelines and limits set by Policy 5.1 of the TSX Venture Exchange. The terms of the finder fees are subject to a variety of conditions leading to the closing of the transaction. As such, the terms will be disclosed via press release once they have been finalized between the parties prior to successful closing.
The Company is in discussion with several parties regarding the arrangement of a concurrent financing to fund a portion of the transaction with BGL, however, there are no firm commitments and there can be no guarantee that the Company will be successful in securing the necessary financing. Relevium will issue a press release advising as to the status of any financing.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
