MYOS RENS TECHNOLOGY INC. (NASDAQ:MYOS) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On June 30, 2020, MYOS RENS Technology, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“MYOS”), and MedAvail, Inc., a privately-held Delaware corporation (“MedAvail”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among MYOS, MedAvail, and Matrix Merger Sub, Inc., a newly-created wholly-owned subsidiary of MYOS (“Merger Sub”), to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into MedAvail, with MedAvail being the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of MYOS (the “Merger”). The Boards of Directors of MYOS and MedAvail have both approved the Merger and have recommended approval of the Merger by their respective shareholders.
MedAvail is a private, in-clinic telemedicine-enabled pharmacy organization based in Ontario, Canada that has developed and commercialized a proprietary robotic dispensing platform and home delivery operation focused on the Medicare Advantage market in the United States, or U.S.
At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”): (a) each share of MedAvail’s common stock and each share of MedAvail’s preferred stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, excluding any dissenting shares, will be automatically converted solely into the right to receive a number of shares of MYOS common stock (“MYOS Common Stock”) calculated according to the exchange ratio described below; (b) each outstanding MedAvail stock option that has not been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by MYOS; and (c) each outstanding warrant to acquire MedAvail capital stock that has not been exercised prior to the Effective Time will be assumed by MYOS. Under the exchange ratio formula in the Merger Agreement, as of immediately after the Merger, the former MedAvail security holders are expected to own approximately 96.5% of the aggregate number of fully-diluted shares of MYOS Common Stock outstanding following the consummation of the Merger (the “Post-Closing Shares”), and the stockholders of MYOS immediately prior to the Merger are expected to own approximately 3.5% of the Post-Closing Shares, subject to the adjustments set forth in the Merger Agreement. The exchange ratio will be fixed prior to the closing of the Merger to reflect MYOS’s and MedAvail’s respective capitalizations as of immediately prior to the Effective Time. The Merger is intended to qualify for federal income tax purposes as a tax-free reorganization under the provisions of Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
Immediately following the Merger, the name of the post-merger combined company (the “Post-Merger Combined Company”) is expected to be changed from “MYOS RENS Technology Inc.” to “MedAvail Holdings, Inc.” The Merger Agreement provides that the Board of Directors of the Post-Merger Combined Company will consist of members who are currently directors of MedAvail. The executive officers of the Post-Merger Combined Company will be designated by MedAvail, with MedAvail’s Chief Executive Officer, Ed Kilroy, expected to be the Post-Merger Combined Company’s Chief Executive Officer and MedAvail’s Chief Financial Officer, Ryan Ferguson, expected to be the Post-Merger Combined Company’s Chief Financial Officer.
The closing of the Merger is subject to satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions including, among other things, (a) the required approvals of the Merger by the parties’ stockholders, (b) the accuracy of the parties’ representations and warranties, subject to certain materiality qualifications, (c) compliance by the parties with their respective covenants, (d) no law or order preventing the closing of the Merger and the related transactions, (e) the continuous listing of the MYOS Common Stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) from the date of the Merger Agreement through the closing date of the Merger, (f) the shares of MYOS Common Stock to be issued in the Merger being approved for listing (subject to official notice of issuance) on Nasdaq as of the closing of the Merger, (g) a registration statement with respect to the MYOS Common Stock to be issued to MedAvail security holders having been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in accordance with the provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and not being subject to any stop order or proceeding (or threatened proceeding by the SEC) seeking a stop order with respect to the registration statement that has not been withdrawn, and (h) MedAvail completing a financing of at least $30 million.
The Merger Agreement contains certain customary termination rights, including, among others, (a) the right of either MYOS or MedAvail to terminate the Merger Agreement if the other party’s stockholders fail to adopt and approve the Merger Agreement, (b) the right of either party to terminate the Merger Agreement if the other party’s board of directors changes or withdraws its recommendation in favor of the transactions, (c) the right of either party to terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger has not occurred by the six month anniversary of the date of the Merger Agreement, (d) the right of either party to terminate the Merger Agreement due to a material breach by the other party of any of its representations, warranties or covenants which would result in the closing conditions not being satisfied, subject to certain conditions, and (e) the right of
either party to terminate the Merger Agreement if a court of competent jurisdiction or other governmental body issues a final and non-appealable order, decree or ruling, or has taken any other action, having the effect of permanently restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the Merger and related transactions. Upon the termination of the Merger Agreement by MYOS or MedAvail, a termination fee of (i) $500,000 may be payable by MYOS to MedAvail, or (ii) $750,000 may be payable by MedAvail to MYOS.
Assignment and Assumption Agreement and Subscription and Stock Purchase Agreement
The Merger Agreement provides that, prior to the consummation of the Merger, MYOS will transfer and assign all of its assets and liabilities into MYOS Corp., a newly-created, wholly-owned subsidiary of MYOS, to an Assignment and Assumption Agreement (the “Assignment and Assumption Agreement”) and a related Subscription and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Subscription and Stock Purchase Agreement”). The shares of MYOS Corp., immediately after the closing of the Merger, will be spun-out from the Post-Merger Combined Company through a dividend of the stock of MYOS Corp. to the pre-Merger MYOS shareholders, resulting in MYOS Corp., a private company, continuing the current business operations of MYOS. MedAvail will pay MYOS Corp. $2 million in cash upon the closing of the Merger and issue a promissory note for an additional $3 million, payable in installments within one year of the closing of the Merger.
Contemporaneously with the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement, each of the directors and officers of MedAvail, and certain of its stockholders, entered into voting agreements in favor of MedAvail, and certain of the directors and officers of MYOS, and certain of its stockholders, entered into voting agreements in favor of MYOS, under which such parties agreed to vote as stockholders in favor of certain corporate actions, including approval of the Merger (such agreements, collectively, the “Voting Agreements”).
The persons and entities signing the Voting Agreements currently beneficially own an aggregate of approximately 90% of the outstanding MedAvail capital stock and 23% of the outstanding MYOS capital stock, on an as-converted to common stock basis.
Contemporaneously with the execution and delivery of the Merger Agreement, each of the directors and officers of MedAvail, and certain of its stockholders, entered into lock-up agreements in favor of MedAvail (collectively, the “Lock-Up Agreements”), to which such officers, directors and stockholders accepted certain restrictions on transfers of the shares of MYOS Common Stock held by such officer, director or stockholder during the period commencing upon the Effective Time and ending on the date that is 180 days after the date of closing of the Merger.
Amendment to Rights Agreement
On June 30, 2020 MYOS entered into the Second Amendment to Rights Agreement (the “Amendment”) with Transhare, as rights agent, which amends the Rights Agreement, dated as of February 14, 2017, previously entered into between MYOS and Island Stock Transfer as rights agent, as amended on February 14, 2020, with Transhare as the successor rights agent (the “Rights Agreement”). The Amendment amends the Rights Agreement to provide, among other things, that (i) neither the approval, execution, delivery or performance or, if approved by the board of directors of MYOS, amendment, modification or waiver of the Merger Agreement or the Voting Agreement or the consummation of the Merger or any other transaction contemplated by the Merger Agreement or the Voting Agreement, nor the public announcement of any of the foregoing will (a) cause any person to (1) become an Acquiring Person (as defined in the Rights Agreement) or be deemed to have become an Acquiring Person or (2) be deemed to have acquired Beneficial Ownership (as defined in the Rights Agreement) of any securities of MYOS or (b) result in the occurrence or deemed occurrence of a Distribution Date (as defined in the Rights Agreement), consolidation or merger or other event or occurrence resulting in a triggering of rights of holders of Rights (as defined in the Rights Agreement), or of obligations of MYOS under the Rights Agreement, and (ii) the Rights will expire in their entirety, and the Rights Agreement will terminate upon the earliest of (a) immediately prior to the Effective Time, (b) the Close of Business (as defined in the Rights Agreement) on February 21, 2021, (c) the time at which all Rights are redeemed, (d) the time at which all Rights are exchanged and (e) the closing of any merger or other acquisition involving MYOS at which time the Rights are terminated.
