Agility Health, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AHI) ("Agility Health" or, the "Company"), a leading provider of physical rehabilitation and software services that benefit patients, healthcare providers and employers, announced today that its principal operating subsidiary, Agility Health, LLC ("Agility LLC") has settled litigation involving FPCG LLC ("FPCG"), a former investment advisor of Agility LLC which had claimed that a commission was owed to it by Agility LLC. Pursuant to the settlement, Agility LLC has agreed to pay FPCG a total of US$1,089,928.10.
As partial settlement of the amount payable to FPCG, the Canadian dollar equivalent of US$914,928.10 is to be released from an escrow account (the "Escrowed Funds") established by Steve Davidson, CEO of the Company and one of its largest shareholders, and Kenneth Scholten, the President of the Company and also one of its largest shareholders, as sureties for a bond that Agility LLC was required to file in connection with its appeal of the original judgment in favour of FPCG. Agility LLC has agreed to pay the balance of the amount owing to FPCG, being US$175,000, over a 20-month period with interest on the outstanding balance accruing at a rate of 10% per annum.
Pursuant to the previously announced agreement among the Company, Mr. Davidson and Mr. Scholten (the "Forbes Surety Agreement"), the Company will issue to each of Mr. Davidson and Mr. Scholten, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), an unsecured convertible debenture (the "Escrow Debenture") in the principal amount of CDN$602,342.91, representing one half of the Canadian dollar equivalent of the Escrowed Funds. The principal amount of the Escrow Debentures outstanding from time to time will accrue interest at the rate of 14% per annum, the Company's weighted average cost of capital for the period from February 11, 2016 to today's date. The outstanding principal amount of the Escrow Debentures and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon shall be convertible at the option of the holder into voting common shares of the Company ("Voting Common Shares") at a conversion price equal to CDN $0.149 per share, the volume weighted average price per Voting Common Share on the TSX Venture Exchange over the thirty (30) trading days preceding today's date (the "Conversion Price"). Additionally, the Company will issue to each of Mr. Davidson and Mr. Scholten, subject to the approval of the TSXV, an unsecured convertible debenture (the "Interest Debenture") in the principal amount of CDN$102,252.36, which amount represents the interest that has accrued on the funds originally deposited in escrow by Mr. Davidson and Mr. Scholten at a rate of 14% per annum for the period from February 11, 2016 to today's date. The principal amount of the Interest Debentures will accrue interest at the rate of 2.03% per annum. The outstanding principal amount of the Interest Debentures and any accrued but unpaid interest thereon shall be convertible at the option of the holder into Voting Common Shares of the Company at the Conversion Price. The Escrow Debentures and the Interest Debentures will mature on January 1, 2019.
