Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. (CSE: LDS), (OTCQX:LDSYF), (Frankfurt:LD6, WKN:A14XHT) (“LDS” or the “Company”) announces it has entered into an exclusive agreement to negotiate a proposed business amalgamation between TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE:TCAN, XETR:TH8) (“TransCanna”, or “TCAN”) and Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc. The proposed business amalgamation is expected to involve the acquisition by TransCanna of all the outstanding common shares of LDS at a price equal to the greater of $51,660,140payable in common shares of TransCanna and the amount resulting from a fixed exchange ratio of one (1) TransCanna common shares for every ten (10) LDS common shares.
This transaction, if completed, would allow for the operational foundation created by LDS to be expanded into the TCAN northern California facility in a significant way. In this new entity the TCAN-known cannabis brands with LDS expertise could have a potential to be cultivated, processed, manufactured and taken direct to market almost immediately upon closing of this transaction. The shareholders of LDS will receive a premium on the current price, while being protected from any downside pricing risk between the day of this news release and the closing date by the purchase price floor of $51,660,140 (which can be greater but not less) and the fixed share exchange ratio of 10:1 LDS shares for TCAN shares. TCAN management has been successful in their ability to promote and deliver to the market a comprehensive vision of the value of a vertically-integrated California cannabis operation. This transaction would make that vision a reality the day it closes. There are a number of transaction qualifications required before this decision goes to the shareholders. The due diligence by both companies, a fairness opinion and the approval from the Securities Exchange Commission. Ultimately the shareholders will determine the final decision of whether or not the amalgamation will be completed.
The Company’s CEO, Brad Eckenweiler, stated, “We believe that the amalgamation of our two companies will ultimately yield a value greater than the current individual values of LDS and TCAN. During the coming months, I believe the benefit of this transaction will become apparent to all the parties. The transaction will require approximately 60 days to structure and its closing will be subject to the approval of the Securities Exchange Commission, a fairness opinion, due diligence and the shareholders’ approval. During the estimated 60-day period the shareholders will have ample time to decide for themselves as to the value of this transaction. Moreover, there is no single group, brokerage or the management for LDS that have a percentage of ownership that would constitute a majority interest capable of deciding this issue alone. This transaction will be decided by the shareholders, period.”
The Company will continue to update the market on all events as they become relevant.
