PharmaCielo Provides Update on Proposed Acquisition of Creso Pharma
TORONTO, Canada (November 1, 2019) – PharmaCielo Ltd. (“PharmaCielo” or the “Company”) (TSXV:PCLO, OTC:PHCEF) today announced that in respect of its proposed acquisition of Creso Pharma Limited (“Creso Pharma”) originally announced on June 6, 2019, and prior to the opening of the markets this morning, the Company was advised that Creso Pharma had received a supplementary independent expert report from BDO Corporate Finance (WA) Pty Ltd. updating its September 26, 2019 report, to now conclude that the Share Scheme of Arrangement (the “Share Scheme”) under which PharmaCielo has proposed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Creso Pharma is neither fair nor reasonable and is not in the best interests of shareholders of Creso Pharma.
The PharmaCielo Board of Directors has communicated that while it remains committed to closing the proposed transaction with Creso Pharma in its current form and in a disciplined manner, it will not increase the consideration that has been offered to Creso Pharma shareholders and listed optionholders as part of the acquisition. PharmaCielo has sought confirmation from the Board of Directors of Creso Pharma that it continues to support the Share Scheme, the option scheme and the other transactions contemplated by the Scheme Implementation Agreement originally announced on June 6, 2019.
