NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
TORONTO, May 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Skylight Health Group Inc. (TSXV:SHG; OTCQX: SHGFF) (“Skylight Health” or the “Company”), a multi-state primary care management group in the United States, is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced bought deal offering of 9,857,800 common shares (the "Common Shares", each a "Common Share") in the capital of the Company at a price of C$1.40 per Common Share for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of C$13,800,920 (the "Offering"), inclusive of the full exercise of the over-allotment option.
The Offering was completed on a bought deal basis and was underwritten by a syndicate of underwriters led by Raymond James Ltd. as sole bookrunner and co-lead underwriter and Stifel GMP as co-lead underwriter on behalf of a syndicate including Beacon Securities Limited, Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., and Bloom Burton Securities Inc. (collectively the “Underwriters").
Skylight Health intends to use the proceeds of the Offering to fund growth initiatives, including executing its M&A strategy, and for general corporate purposes.
The Company is also pleased to announce that, in connection with the potential listing of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Shares on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, and as previously authorized by its shareholders, the Company is implementing a consolidation (reverse stock split) of its issued and outstanding Common Shares on a 5:1 basis.
“This share consolidation positions us to access qualified investors on our Nasdaq uplist,” says Prad Sekar, CEO and Co-Founder. “We have spent the last 5 months meeting with US institutions who specialize in both small-cap and healthcare investing and have received strong support and internalized their feedback. This consolidation comes at the recommendation of those accounts, and our banking and capital markets teams, who believe this will help to achieve our growth going forward with a strong foundation.”
The consolidation ratio was determined by the Company's board of directors in accordance with the parameters authorized by the Company's shareholders at the Company's annual and special meeting of shareholders held on February 22, 2021. The consolidation will take effect, following the closing of the Offering, on May 28, 2021. Immediately prior to the consolidation there are expected to be 190,548,775 Common Shares issued and outstanding (including the Common Shares issued under the Offering), and it is expected that there will be 38,109,755 Common Shares following the consolidation, subject to rounding for any fractional shares. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the share consolidation and the number of post-consolidation shares to be received by a shareholder will be rounded up, in the case of a fractional interest that is 0.5 or greater, or rounded down, in the case of a fractional interest that is less than 0.5, to the nearest whole number of shares that such holder would otherwise be entitled to receive upon the implementation of the share consolidation.

ABOUT SKYLIGHT HEALTH GROUP INC.
Skylight Health Group (TSXV:SHG; OTCQX:SHGFF) is a healthcare services and technology company, working to positively impact patient health outcomes. The Company operates a US multi-state primary care health network comprised of physical practices providing a range of services from primary care, sub-specialty, allied health, and laboratory/diagnostic testing. The Company is focused on helping small and independent practices shift from a traditional fee-for-service (FFS) model to value-based care (VBC) through tools including proprietary technology, data analytics and infrastructure. In a FFS model, payors (commercial and government insurers) reimburse on an encounter-based approach. This puts a focus on volume of patients per day. In a VBC model, payors reimburse typically on a capitation (fixed fee per member per month) basis. This places an emphasis on quality over volume. VBC will lead to improved patient outcomes, reduced cost of delivery and drive stronger financial performance from existing practices.
