Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On September 4, 2023, Zomedica Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zomedica Corp. (the “Company”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which Zomedica Inc. acquired 100% of the capital stock of Structured Monitoring Products, Inc., a Florida corporation (“SMP”) from SMP’s shareholders (“Sellers”).


SMP is the maker of VetGuardian, a zero-touch vital signs remote monitoring system that improves the quality of care for pets during recovery from surgery and for those staying in clinic overnight. The system provides real-time remote monitoring of the pet’s vital signs with the ability to alert staff if the vital signs fall outside preset ranges (the “Acquisition”).


The parties valued SMP at $18,000,000. In connection, with the acquisition, the Company converted $2,750,000 in convertible debt (plus accrued interested) owed by SMP to the Company into equity totaling 28.7% outstanding equity of SMP, which has an implied value of $5,095,196 based upon the parties agreed enterprise value of SMP. Following working capital adjustments and deduction of transaction expenses, Zomedica paid $12,656,676 for the balance of the SMP equity. The cash purchase price was funded through a $250,000 deposit previously paid to SMP and $12,406,677 of cash on hand. The Acquisition was consummated on September 5, 2023.


The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Sellers and the Company. The Purchase Agreement also contains indemnification provisions pursuant to which the Sellers have agreed to jointly and severally indemnify Zomedica against certain losses, subject to the limitations set forth therein, including losses related to breaches of representations, warranties and covenants. The parties have escrowed $1,295,000 as an indemnity escrow.


For reference, the Purchase Agreement has been appended to this report as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein. However, the provided description of the Purchase Agreement and the corresponding transactions is not exhaustive and should be regarded as qualified in entirety by the Purchase Agreement's actual contents.


This inclusion of the Purchase Agreement in the report is intended to furnish investors and security holders with insights into its terms. It should not be construed as furnishing any other factual information regarding the Sellers, the Company, or any of their respective businesses, subsidiaries, or affiliates. The representations, warranties, and covenants within the Purchase Agreement were made solely for the agreement's purposes, as of specific dates, and for the benefit of the parties involved in the Purchase Agreement. Consequently, investors are cautioned against relying on these representations, warranties, and covenants, as well as any descriptions thereof, as characterizations of the factual state or condition of the Sellers, the Company, or any of their subsidiaries or affiliates.


Zomedica issued a press release on September 5, 2023 announcing the closing of the Acquisition. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference.
