Maitri Health Technologies Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Bloom Health Creating a New Generation of Occupational Health Services
Merged operations of Bloom and Maitri will raise the bar in health and safety as a complete digital, clinical, health and safety platform for Fortune 500 companies, movie studios, education and government institutions.
VANCOUVER, BC, July 2, 2021 /CNW/ - Maitri Health Technologies Corp. ("Maitri" or the "Company") (CSE: MTEC) (FRA: D84) announces that it has signed a definitive agreement, dated as of June 29, 2021, to acquire Texas-based Round Hill Health Partners, LLC dba Bloom Health Partners ("Bloom Health"). The deal brings together Maitri's innovative cloud strategy for safe workplaces with Bloom Health's occupational health system serving clientele across the United States. The transaction is expected to close in July 2021.
The combined teams will continue to grow Bloom Health's client base in the United States while expanding its best-in-class clinical operations in other countries. Bloom Health's occupational health and safety solutions currently serve Fortune 500 clients, movie studios, sports and entertainment events. Maitri will be launching a cloud software platform that coordinates health and safety for organizations.
"Helping organizations run safely well into the future will be possible with the combination of our respective teams' expertise and operations," said Andrew Morton, Maitri CEO. "As a health-tech company, our cloud software platform strategy will enable organizations of all types to return to work and intelligently maintain long-term operations. The Bloom acquisition places us as a leading end-to-end occupational health and safety provider."
"We're thrilled to be joining forces with Maitri," said Cole Lysaught, co-founder of Bloom Health. "Bloom's customizable, turnkey health and safety solutions enable organizations in the private and public sectors to provide innovative health services to their workforces and those they serve."
Total consideration for the transaction is US$20,090,000, which will be satisified through the issuance of securities that are exchangeable into 28,030,000 common shares of Maitri (the "Consideration Shares") and completion of cash payments totaling US$12,250,000 (the "Consideration Payments"). The number of Consideration Shares is based on the volume-weighted average trading price price of the common shares of Maitri in the ten trading days prior to the entering of the definitive agreement. The Consideration Payments will be payable quarterly through December 31, 2023, based upon a rate of US$0.70 for every US$1.00 of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") generated by Bloom Health.
The members of Bloom Health will also be entitled to receive additional bonus payments based upon the achievement of the following milestones:
- a one-time payment of US$10,000,000, payable in cash or common shares of the Company, at the election of the members of Bloom Health, upon Bloom Health achieving EBITDA of at least $27,500,000 by December 31, 2023;
- a one-time payment of US$20,000,000, payable in cash or common shares of the Company, at the election of the Company, upon the Company achieving a market capitalization of Cdn$325,000,000 for thirty consecutive trading days prior to December 31, 2023; and
- a one-time payment of US$20,000,000, payable in cash or common shares of the Company, at the election of the members of Bloom Health, upon Bloom Health achieving EBITDA of at least US$52,500,000 by December 31, 2023.
The Company is at arms-length from each of Bloom Health and its members. The transaction does not constitute a reverse-takeover or fundamental change for the Company under the applicable policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange, nor is it expected to result in the creation of any new insider or control person of the Company. In connection with completion of the transaction, the Company has granted Bloom Health the right to appoint two nominees to the board of directors of Maitri. No changes to management of the Company are anticipated in connection with completion of the Acquisition.
