Chrysalis Capital IX Announces Closing of Qualifying Transaction With Inspira Financial Inc. and Anticipated Date of Trading

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 8, 2015) - Chrysalis Capital IX Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NYN.P) ("Chrysalis IX") is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced Qualifying Transaction with Inspira Financial Inc. ("Inspira"). As a result of the transactions completed in connection with the Qualifying Transaction, Chrysalis IX is now a British Columbia corporation called "Inspira Financial Inc." (the "Resulting Issuer").

Inspira Financial Inc.

Inspira targets small healthcare providers throughout the United States by offering revolving lines of credit ("RLOC") and loans ranging from $250,000 to $10 million and is able to generate yields of up to 20% annually, represented by a mixture of interest and fees. With access to low-cost credit markets and facilities, Inspira plans to leverage its RLOC and loan book up to 80% and continue adding clients through direct marketing and originator channel partnerships. Inspira's management believes the current, fully-diluted capital structure with appropriate leverage can generate a $500 million book, with a significant amount of free cash flow.

Despite the growth opportunities found in an aging population and rebounding economy, smaller healthcare providers in the United States face a challenging finance market; traditional banks continue to reduce their risk profiles, term lenders require personal guarantees and first security over all assets, factoring lenders charge significant annual interest and specialized medical equipment providers often do not offer financing programs. By targeting the hundreds of thousands of healthcare providers in the United States, Inspira plans to generate significant returns on its RLOC and loan book collateralized by government (Medicare/Medicaid) and large healthcare insurance accounts receivable.

As an additional growth strategy, Inspira will focus on rolling up the highly fragmented market of small companies in the fast growing market for alternative financial services offered to healthcare providers and their patients. Businesses such as medical bill collection agencies and medical equipment leasing companies offer services and products to alleviate working capital problems experienced by physician offices driven by cuts in reimbursement and increased patient financial responsibility of medical bills. Inspira plans to acquire these types of businesses and increase revenues through cross-selling a full range of alternative financial services. Post-acquisition, Inspira plans to enhance operational efficiencies through the implementation of proprietary technology while leveraging management's financial technology (FinTech) and operations expertise, in an effort to significantly increase its RLOC and loan book and reduce client acquisition costs.

Inspira's long-term strategy includes originating patient consumer financing solutions, a potential trillion-dollar market that is virtually untouched by today's lending industry. From a patient's perspective, recent changes to the United States healthcare system, including the Affordable Care Act, has resulted in a triple digit increase in the out of pocket patient portion of medical procedures and services, putting enormous pressure on the patient's ability to pay and the healthcare provider's ability to collect. Inspira plans to leverage the relationships it gains with the healthcare provider via its RLOC and loan services; combined with proprietary technology built to perfect its security interests can create a distinct advantage to market alternative financial services directly to patients on a very targeted basis.
