VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2020 / Israel Capital Canada Corp. (TSXV:IL.P) (the 'Company') is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent dated for reference October 8, 2020 (the 'Letter of Intent') with Waveforce Electronics Inc., a private Canadian corporation ('Waveforce'), which sets out the terms and conditions pursuant to which the Company will acquire a consumer wellness enhancement membership program ('The Wavestation') which comes with a recurring revenue model, a number of existing frequency packages for general wellness and the wearable technology for delivering these frequency packages to its members. In addition, the Company will acquire two additional licenses. One comes with existing revenue and the second comes with the technology that creates the reason for the member to join. The technology below will be used to create innovative products exclusive to members:
- Frequency capture chamber with the capabilities for bundling frequencies together;
- Frequency emitter wearables using a delivery platform designed to use light as it's carrier;
- Frequency imprinting technique using vibration and light; and
- Frequency infusion process using vibration and light combined.
(the 'Licenses') (the 'Transaction'). The intention is for the Transaction to constitute the Company's Qualifying Transaction, as such term is defined under the TSX Venture Exchange (the 'Exchange') Policy 2.4 - Capital Pool Companies (the 'CPC Policy').
The Transaction is considered an asset acquisition and the Company will not be acquiring any corporate entity under the Transaction. On completion of the Transaction, the Company intends to be listed on the Exchange as a Tier 2 technology issuer and will principally focus on providing innovative light and other wave frequencies solutions/packages that are tailored to various consumer applications.
The directors and officers of the Company own approximately 19.49% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Waveforce. Stephen Davis, the CEO and a director of the Company, is the Chairman and a director of Waveforce. Dr. Keith Pyne - a director of the Company - is also a director of Waveforce. The Transaction, therefore, is considered a Non-Arm's Length Qualifying Transaction under the CPC Policy. In accordance with the rules of the Exchange, the Company will seek shareholder approval for the Qualifying Transaction by written consent of the 'majority of the minority' or by holding a shareholders' meeting.
Terms of the Transaction
Under the terms of the Letter of Intent, Waveforce will provide the Company with two licenses. The first is a worldwide, royalty-bearing license to all Waveforce's equipment, prototypes and knowhow involving frequency capturing, software, the transmitting and imprinting of frequencies for any and all consumer applications (the 'Waveforce Technology'). The second transfers the existing license between Waveforce and FREmedica Technology Inc., a subsidiary of Waveforce, ('FREmedica') to the Company. FREmedica has a series of frequencies created and packaged to support managing the symptoms of Lyme Disease (the 'FREmedica Technology'). The frequency package is delivered on the Waveforce technology and frequency platform. This platform and frequencies are delivered through an App found at https://fremedica.com/ which sends the frequencies to an upgradeable wearable device called 'Wave 1'. This device transmits the frequencies in a conformable pattern using light diodes onto the skin. Under the agreement, FREmedica is required to pay 30% of its gross revenue pertaining to the sale of the wearable and any fees collected for the use of the frequency package for Lyme Disease to the licensor. The transfer of this license agreement to the Company will result in immediate potential income to the Company.
In consideration for the licensing rights, the Company has agreed to issue Waveforce 15,000,000 common shares of the Company for the Waveforce Technology license and an additional 15,000,000 common shares of the Company for the transfer of FREmedica Technology licensing agreement (together the 'Compensation Shares'). The parties intend that four Compensation Shares will be issued from treasury to Waveforce for every $1.00 earned in gross revenue by the Company, (subject to any escrow requirements of the Exchange). In addition to the foregoing, the Company is required to pay Waveforce:
a consulting / set-up fee of $500,000 in cash, stock or combination of both (each share issued deemed at $0.50 per share). $100,000 of this amount is to be paid on the issuance of the final Exchange bulletin concerning the Qualifying Transaction and the remainder in equal quarterly installments over a two-year period; and
a technology development fee of $5.00 per month per first year member and $1.25 per member each year thereafter for all Wave Station Members (as defined in the Letter of Intent).
Any Compensation Shares or other common shares of the Company that are issued will be subject to a hold period under applicable Canadian securities laws expiring four months and a day from the date of issuance. Waveforce has approximately 48 shareholders. The following individuals hold 10% or more of the share interest in Waveforce: 13.22% Stephen Davis (CEO of the Company); 11.17% Stuart Gross; and 12.30% Bill Beadle.
The Letter of Intent provides that the Company and Waveforce will negotiate and enter into a definitive license agreement on or before December 31, 2020.
Further details of the Transaction will follow in future news releases.
The Company intends to develop and deliver frequency packages to purchasers and users of the Wave 1 device developed by Waveforce and FREmedica. The Company plans to develop other devices capable of delivering frequency packages in the future. The Company also expects to develop and sell annual memberships to access different frequency packages and a private live streaming network it plans to develop. The Wave 1 is intended to receive from the cloud software programing data and then emit layered frequency recordings tailored to the user. The Company intends to offer an increasing variety of light pulse frequency packages to members and clients. These frequency packages will be built by the Company or will be licensed by the Company from third parties.
The licenses and underlying technology being acquired were developed over a 5-year period. Waveforce and FREmedica spent approximately $642,000 in development costs with third party consultants/engineers. This cost does not include the time and cost associated with inhouse development and testing of the device and software by Waveforce and FREmedica.
The Company expects to obtain immediate ongoing revenue from the transfer of the licensing agreement with FREmedica. Under this license agreement, the Company will be entitled to receive 30% of the gross revenue FREmedica earns pertaining to the sale of the Wave 1 device and any fees collected for the use of the frequency package for Lyme Disease. The Wave 1 device has generated approximately $415,000 in income for Waveforce to date through the initial test markets.
The foregoing costs and revenue have not been audited.
The Management Team of Waveforce and FREmedica believes that all individuals could benefit from the use of the Wave1 device with different frequency packages aimed to address and support their personal health. Currently, FREmedica is focused on exclusively selling the Wave1 device and Lyme related frequency packages to those who have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is the most common tick-borne disease affecting human and dog health in North America and Europe. If left untreated, it is believed the disease can progress to arthritic, cardiac, and neurological manifestations. According to the CDC, approximately, 30,000 people a year are diagnosed with Lyme Disease in the United States. However, recent estimates propose that in actuality, the infection rate is ten times that amount. It is suggested that approximately 300,000 people per year may get Lyme Disease in the United States alone. (https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/stats/humancases.html) The North American total addressable market of potential consumers for the Wave1 and Lyme related frequency packages is valued at approximately $510 million annually.
As a condition to the completion of the Transaction, the Company will undertake a private placement financing to raise a minimum of $1,500,000 and up to $2,000,000 through the issuance of units (the 'Units') at a price of $0.50 per unit (the 'Offering'). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (a 'Warrant'). Each Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one common share for a period of 24 months at an exercise price equal to $1.00 per share. The financing is subject to the approval of the Exchange. On completion of the Transaction, the proceeds of the Offering will be used to further develop the business of the Company and for general working capital purposes. Further details regarding the Offering will be included in a subsequent news release once additional details become available.
Capitalization of Company on Close of the Transaction and Offering
It is expected that following the completion of the Transaction and the minimum Offering there will be approximately 10,181,341 common shares of the Company, 3,000,000 warrants, 200,000 agent's warrants and 460,000 stock options issued and outstanding. The existing shareholders of the Company will hold approximately 7,181,341 (70.53%) of the common shares of the Company; new shareholders of the Company will hold 3,000,000 of the common shares of the Company (29.47%) (assuming the minimum Offering amount is raised); and Waveforce will have the right to earn from treasury 30,000,000 common shares of the Company (approximately 74.66% of the issued and outstanding of the common shares of the Company after issuance).
