The Arrangement Bolsters the Company’s Proposed Network of Six Clinics in the United States
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KetamineOne Capital Limited (“Ketamine One” or the “Company”) (NEO: MEDI) (OTC: KONEF) (Frankfurt: MY0), a company focused on consolidating medical clinics and becoming a North American leader in mental health treatments, is pleased to announce that it has recently entered into a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to enter into an arranged partnership (“Arrangement”) with Illumma LLC, (“Illumma”).
With clinics located in Austin and Bee Cave, Texas, Illumma is a leading ketamine infusion practice treating individuals with mental health issues, mood disorders and chronic pain issues. Under the contemplated Arrangement, Illumma’s two locations would be jointly supported alongside the Company’s existing network of clinics across North America, thereby raising the profile of Ketamine One’s innovative mental health platform and approach to patient care in the United States.
Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the consideration contemplated for the Arrangement is estimated to be $980,000. The consideration is proposed to be payable as $490,000 in common shares of Ketamine One and $490,000 in cash, of which $350,000 is to be allocated by Illumma toward the construction of future clinics, among other terms and conditions. The final amount shall be determined by multiplying the total amount of 2021 audited gross revenues from treatments performed at Illumma’s existing clinics by a factor of two, and then netting that amount by a minority percentage to arrive at the consideration due by Ketamine One to Illumma.
“The Illumma team is excited to join forces with Ketamine One as we usher in this new paradigm shift in mental health treatment and care. Through this partnership, we will not only be able to help more people heal their mental health issues like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, but we will also work to setting a new standard for how ketamine therapy is provided,” said Dr. Ken Adolph, Founder of Illumma. “As the African proverb says, ‘if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together,’ and we believe this is just the first step in the long journey of our shared mission to help heal humanity,” added Dr. Adolph.
“We look forward to completing this Arrangement with Illumma and significantly growing our offering of clinics to prospective patients in the United States. Illumma’s ketamine infusion therapies provide important relief and offer hope to Texans who feel lost or are struggling with chronic illness and pain,” said Adam Deffett, Interim CEO of Ketamine One. “Through Dr. Ken Adolph’s leadership, Illumma’s two existing clinics have already contributed to the improved mental health of their patients by applying innovative ketamine infusion therapies like those offered in Ketamine One’s clinical network. We expect that this arrangement will attract other partnerships or even acquisition targets, and yield further expansion opportunities across the United States,” added Mr. Deffett.
