Item 1.01 Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement.

 

Merger Agreement

 

On October 16, 2020, Helix Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Forian Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), DNA Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and Medical Outcomes Research Analytics, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“MOR”). The transactions contemplated under the Merger Agreement are referred to as the “Transactions.”

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, a business combination between the Company and Parent will be effected through the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as the surviving company (the “Surviving Company”) and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). Once effective, common stock of the Company will be converted into the right to receive common stock of Parent pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, as more fully set forth under “Consideration” below.

 

Immediately prior to the consummation of the Merger, Parent and MOR will consummate a reorganization (the “Parent Reorganization”), pursuant to which the holders of all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of MOR (the “MOR Owners”) will exchange their ownership interests in MOR for common stock of Parent, par value $0.001 per share (“Parent Common Stock”), pursuant to a Contribution Agreement between the Reporting Person and the MOR Owners. The Parent Reorganization will result in MOR also becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

 

As a result of the Parent Reorganization and Merger, the stockholders of the Company and the MOR Owners, respectively, will become the stockholders of Parent.

 

Consideration

 

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, the consideration to be paid in the Merger consists of Parent Common Stock.

 

Prior to the effective time of the Merger (the “Closing”), (a) all of the Company’s outstanding shares of preferred stock shall have been converted into shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (“Company Common Stock”), and (b) certain outstanding convertible notes of the Company shall have been converted into shares of Company Common Stock.

 

At the Closing, (a) each share of Company Common Stock that is issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Closing (other than dissenting shares and shares of Company Common Stock, if any, held by Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, any subsidiary of the Company or held in the Company’s treasury) will be canceled and converted into the right to receive 0.02731 validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable shares of Parent Common Stock, (b) each share of Company Common Stock held by Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, any subsidiary of the Company or in the treasury of the Company will be canceled automatically without conversion thereof and no payment or distribution will be made with respect thereto, and (c) each option to purchase Company Common Stock, whether vested or unvested, that is outstanding immediately prior to the Closing shall, by virtue of the occurrence of the Closing and without any action on the part of the Company, be converted into an option with respect to a number of shares of Parent Common Stock in the manner set forth in the Merger Agreement.

 

At the Closing, by virtue of the Merger, each share of common stock of Merger Sub issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Closing shall be converted into and exchanged for one validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share of common stock of the Surviving Company and shall constitute the only outstanding shares of capital stock of the Surviving Company.

Board of Directors and Executive Officers Post-Closing

Furthermore, immediately after consummation of the Merger, Dan Barton, Chief Executive Officer of MOR, will be Chief Executive Officer of Parent, Max Wygod, co-founder of MOR, will be Executive Chairman of Parent’s board of directors, and Adam Dublin, co-founder of MOR, will be Chief Strategy Officer of Parent.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “would,” “target,” similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, Parent or MOR, and are not guarantees of future results, such as statements about the potential timing or consummation of the proposed Transactions or the anticipated benefits thereof, including, without limitation, future financial and operating results. These and other forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in such statements and, therefore, undue reliance should not be placed on any such statements and caution must be exercised in relying on forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, risks and uncertainties related to (i) the ability to obtain stockholder and regulatory approvals, or the possibility that such matters may delay the proposed Transactions or that such regulatory approval may result in the imposition of conditions that could cause the parties to abandon the proposed Transactions, (ii) the risk that a condition to closing of the Merger may not be satisfied; (iii) the ability of the Company and MOR to integrate their businesses successfully and to achieve anticipated cost savings and other synergies, (iv) the possibility that other anticipated benefits of the proposed Transactions will not be realized, including without limitation, anticipated revenues, expenses, earnings and other financial results, and growth and expansion of the new combined company’s operations, and the anticipated tax treatment, (v) potential litigation relating to the proposed Transactions that could be instituted against the Company, Parent or MOR or their respective directors, (vi) possible disruptions from the proposed Transactions that could harm the Company’s or MOR’s respective businesses, including current plans and operations, (vii) the ability of the Company, Parent and MOR to retain, attract and hire key personnel, including the management team named in this release, (viii) potential adverse reactions or changes to relationships with clients, employees, suppliers or other parties resulting from the announcement or completion of the Merger, (ix) potential business uncertainty, including changes to existing business relationships, during the pendency of the merger that could affect the Company’s, Parent’s and/or MOR’s financial performance, (x) certain restrictions during the pendency of the Merger that may impact the Company’s or MOR’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions, (xi) continued availability of capital and financing and rating agency actions, (xii) legislative, regulatory and economic developments and changes, (xiii) unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, COVID-19, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, (xiv) the risk that the Nasdaq listing of the Parent Common Stock may not occur, (xv) the risk that the market price of shares of the Company Common Stock may be volatile and fluctuate substantially, including as a result of shares currently subject to trading restrictions that may be released from such restrictions following the proposed Transactions, (xvi) those risks and uncertainties discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 and (xvii) management’s response to any of the aforementioned factors. These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed Transactions, will be more fully discussed in the proxy statement/prospectus that will be included in the Form S-4. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by these forward-looking statements. Therefore, investors, stockholders and other persons should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements included herein are made only as of the date hereof. None of the Company, Parent or MOR assumes any obligation to provide revisions or updates to any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws.

 

This communication is not intended to be all-inclusive or to contain all the information that a person may desire in considering the proposed Transactions and is not intended to form the basis of a decision. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning Parent and the Company, the proposed Transactions or other matters and attributable to Parent and the Company or any person acting on their behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above.
