TORONTO, July 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MCI Onehealth Technologies Inc.

The Company has sought and obtained written consents to the Transfer from disinterested shareholders of the Company holding securities entitled to more than 50% of the votes attributable to all issued and outstanding securities of the Company, excluding those held or controlled by parties with an interest in the Lender, the Transfer or the New Facility. The Company has applied to the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) for approval to complete the Transfer to a related party under s.604(d) of the TSX Company Manual on the basis of having obtained the aforementioned consents from disinterested shareholders, in lieu of approving the Transfer at a shareholder meeting.
Under s.604(d) of the TSX Company Manual, the Transfer may only be completed after five clear business days have elapsed from the date of this press release, and the Transfer is subject to obtaining the final approval of the TSX and any required third-party consents.
