BuzBuz Capital and Inolife R&D Announce Closing of Qualifying Transaction

0

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2021) – NuGen Medical Devices Inc. (formerly BuzBuz Capital Corp. (“Buz“)) (the “Company“), is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced business combination (the “Transaction“) with Inolife R&D Inc. (“Inolife“). The Transaction consisted of the acquisition by the Company of all of the issued and outstanding common shares in the capital of Inolife by way of a three-cornered amalgamation, pursuant to which a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company amalgamated with Inolife and each Inolife shareholder received one (1) post-consolidation common share in the capital of the Company for each post-consolidated Inolife common share held, following the consolidation of the Inolife common shares on a three for one basis. As part of the Transaction, the Company changed its name from “BuzBuz Capital Corp.” to “NuGen Medical Devices Inc.” and the directors and management of Inolife became the directors and management of the Company.

Following the completion of the Transaction, Inolife (now renamed EPG Global Ltd.) is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and the Company meets the listing requirements for a “Tier 2” life sciences issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“). The Company will continue the business of Inolife, which is an emerging specialty medical device company focused on developing and commercializing novel drug delivery technologies. Inolife has commercialized needle-free injection systems for the administration of subcutaneous medication, which is approved for sale in over 40 countries globally. Trading in the common shares of the Company is expected to begin on the Exchange later this month under the symbol “NGMD”.

“We are very pleased with the closing of this transaction and to have NuGen Medical Devices trading on the TSX Venture Exchange shortly. This is a very important milestone for the company that will allow us to begin executing on our plan to become the leader in needle-free medical device technology,” said Michael Wright, the new Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company following the completion of the Transaction.

Prior to the Transaction, Buz was a Capital Pool Company (as defined under the policies of the Exchange), and had not commenced commercial operations and had no assets other than cash. In connection with the Transaction, on October 15, 2021, Buz consolidated its common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation common share for each two (2) pre-consolidation common shares. The Transaction constituted Buz’s “Qualifying Transaction”, as such term is defined in Policy 2.4 of the Exchange.

In connection with the Transaction, Inolife completed a brokered private placement through Canaccord Genuity Corp. of 15,000,000 subscription receipts at a price of $0.40 per subscription receipt for gross proceeds of $6 million. Each subscription receipt was deemed automatically converted into one unit (a “Unit“) of Inolife, without the payment of additional consideration or the taking of further action on the part of the subscriber. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of Inolife and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share in the capital of Inolife (each, a “Warrant Share“) at a price of C$0.70 per Warrant Share for a period of twelve months following the satisfaction of the Escrow Release Conditions. All Units under the financing were exchanged for equivalent securities of the Company in connection with the terms of the Transaction.

As part of the Transaction, common share purchase warrants, stock options, convertible debentures of Inolife were replaced with similar securities of the Company with adjustments to their exercise or conversion terms to reflect the exchange ratio for the Inolife common shares under the Transaction.

Following the completion of the Transaction, the Company currently has a total of 86,014,961 common shares outstanding, as well as: (i) common share purchase warrants exercisable to purchase up to 14,705,602 common shares at exercise prices ranging from $0.30 to $$0.90; (ii) stock options exercisable to purchase 700,000 common shares at exercise prices ranging from $0.20 to $0.90; and (iii) EUR6,235,000 principal amount of convertible debentures convertible into common shares of the Company at a price of CAD $2.85 per common share.

An aggregate of 29,576,340 common shares are subject to escrow pursuant to Exchange escrow requirements.

As a result of the closing of the Transaction, the directors and executive officers of the Company are now:

Michael Wright President, Chief Executive Officer and Director
Veronique Laberge Chief Financial Officer
Nicky Canton Chief Operating Officer
Derek Lindsay Director
Karen Dunlap Director
John Leombruno Director
William Cleman Director
Michael Wekerle Director

 

Further details about the Transaction and the Company as the resulting issuer from the Transaction are available in the final prospectus of Buz filed in respect of the Transaction which has been filed under Buz’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Maximizing Returns for Investors Over the Long Term

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2021) – AlphaNorth Asset Management won three awards at today’s 14th Annual Canadian Hedge Fund Awards. The AlphaNorth Partners Fund won 1st place for ‘Best 5-Year Annualized Return’ (June 30, 2016 – June 30, 2021) for its flagship hedge fund, the AlphaNorth Partners Fund. The AlphaNorth Partners Fund achieved annualized returns of 40.3% over the 5 year period as compared to its benchmark, the S&P/TSX Venture Index, which returned 5.6% over the same time period. The AlphaNorth Partners Fund was also awarded 2nd place for ‘Best 3-Year Annualized Return’ and 3rd place for ‘Best 1-Year Return’.

Steve Palmer, AlphaNorth’s Chief Investment Office and Portfolio Manager, said, “It is gratifying to be recognized as the best Canadian hedge fund for superior performance over 5 years in addition to the exceptional performance for the shorter time periods of one and three years. We take a long term perspective and encourage our investors to not sweat the short term volatility which can be high in the small cap space. AlphaNorth’s investment philosophy focuses on maximizing returns for our investors over the long term rather than minimizing short term volatility.”

“AlphaNorth’s success is based on investing in small caps which historically have significantly outperformed all other asset classes,” says Joey Javier, Managing Partner.

Launched in December 2007, the AlphaNorth Partners Fund is a long biased small cap hedge fund focusing primarily on Canadian companies. The investment objective is to achieve industry leading long term capital growth through superior selection of principally Canadian securities. AlphaNorth believes that superior long term investment returns are achievable by exploiting inefficiencies in the Canadian small cap universe through careful security selection on both a long and short basis. The firm combines both a bottom-up and top-down strategy in the selection of investments offering the best risk/reward characteristics. AlphaNorth employs various technical analysis techniques, which have proven to be successful, to assist in the timing of buy/sell decisions. The AlphaNorth Partners Fund is available to accredited investors.

Credit Suisse to Pay Nearly $475 Million to U.S. and U.K. Authorities to Resolve Charges in Connection with Mozambican Bond Offerings

0

Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – October 19, 2021) – Credit Suisse Group AG has agreed to pay nearly $475 million to U.S. and U.K authorities, including nearly $100 million to the Securities and Exchange Commission, for fraudulently misleading investors and violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) in a scheme involving two bond offerings and a syndicated loan that raised funds on behalf of state-owned entities in Mozambique.

According to the SEC’s order, these transactions that raised over $1 billion were used to perpetrate a hidden debt scheme, pay kickbacks to now-indicted former Credit Suisse investment bankers along with their intermediaries, and bribe corrupt Mozambique government officials. The SEC’s order finds that the offering materials created and distributed to investors by Credit Suisse hid the underlying corruption and falsely disclosed that the proceeds would help develop Mozambique’s tuna fishing industry. Credit Suisse failed to disclose the full extent and nature of Mozambique’s indebtedness and the risk of default arising from these transactions.

The SEC’s order also finds that the scheme resulted from Credit Suisse’s deficient internal accounting controls, which failed to properly address significant and known risks concerning bribery.

“When it comes to cross-border securities law violations, the SEC will continue to work collaboratively with overseas law enforcement and regulatory agencies to fulfill its Enforcement mission,” said Gurbir S. Grewal, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. “Our action against Credit Suisse today is yet another example of our close and successful coordination with counterparts in Europe and Asia.”  

“Credit Suisse provided investors with incomplete and misleading disclosures despite being uniquely positioned to understand the full extent of Mozambique’s mounting debt and serious risk of default based on its prior lending arrangements,” said Anita B. Bandy, Associate Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. “The massive offering fraud was also a consequence of the bank’s significant lapses in internal accounting controls and repeated failure to respond to corruption risks.”

A London-based subsidiary of Russian bank VTB separately agreed to pay more than $6 million to settle SEC charges related to its role in misleading investors in a second 2016 bond offering. According to the SEC’s order, the second offering as structured by VTB Capital and Credit Suisse allowed investors to exchange their notes in an earlier bond offering for new sovereign bonds issued directly by the government of Mozambique. But the SEC found that the offering materials distributed and marketed by Credit Suisse and VTB Capital failed to disclose the true nature of Mozambique’s debt and the high risk of default on the bonds. The offering materials further failed to disclose Credit Suisse’s discovery that significant funds from the earlier offering had been diverted away from the intended use of proceeds that was disclosed to investors. Mozambique later defaulted on the financings after the full extent of “secret debt” was revealed.

The SEC’s order against Credit Suisse finds that it violated antifraud provisions as well as internal accounting controls and books and records provisions of the federal securities laws.  Credit Suisse agreed to pay disgorgement and interest totaling more than $34 million and a penalty of $65 million to the SEC. As part of coordinated resolutions, the U.S. Department of Justice imposed a $247 million criminal fine, with Credit Suisse paying, after crediting, $175 million, and Credit Suisse also agreed to pay over $200 million in a penalty as part of a settled action with the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority.

VTB Capital consented to an SEC order finding that it violated negligence-based antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws. Without admitting or denying the findings, VTB Capital agreed to pay over $2.4 million in disgorgement and interest along with a $4 million penalty.

The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Lesley B. Atkins and Douglas C. McAllister with assistance from Wendy Kong of the Office of Investigative and Market Analytics, Carlos Costa-Rodriguez of the Office of International Affairs, and supervisory trial counsel Tom Bednar. The case was supervised by Ms. Bandy. The SEC appreciates the assistance of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section and Fraud Section, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, and the United Arab Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority.

The head of the National Taiwan University Hospital, Dr. Ming-Shiang Wu, pointed out that Taiwan has a head start in the development of precision medicine thanks to its highly innovative technology industry and dynamic healthcare sector highly innovated technology industry as well as its dynamic healthcare sector has given it an edge in developing precision medicine. However, it requires a high degree of integration is needed between different sectors that have been disconnected to ensure competence. According to Wu, it is necessary to find talents with interdisciplinary skills and to overcome the differences in organizational cultures. Huey-Herng Sheu, the superintendent of Taipei Veterans General Hospital, also mentions the need for interdisciplinary integration in addressing unmet clinical needs and accelerating product development.

“A mindset adjustment is needed as the high-tech industry deepens its engagement with the medical industry,” said Chris Kuo, the executive director of medical business development under Wistron Corp., a leading Taiwanese ODM. Chris addressed that the tech industry mainly thinks in terms of products, especially development speed and quantity. In contrast, the medical industry thinks in terms of patient demand and precision. “Technology commercialization is the weak link in Taiwan’s precision medicine industry,” observed Johnsee Lee, the chairman of Taiwan Precision Medicine & Molecular Diagnostic Industry Association. The biotech veteran believed that Taiwan’s broad collection of biomedical data, in combination with its tech prowess, has given it a significant advantage. Nevertheless, it is not sufficient to merely commercialize the data but to commercialize the relevant technologies as well.

Cloud and edge computing

Wilson To, the head of global healthcare, life sciences, and genomics at Amazon Web Services (AWS), also attended the Expo and shared Amazon’s experiences in smart healthcare. According to To, AWS believes that the digital innovations in healthcare should come from all companies and enterprises regardless of size, and Amazon aspires to enable such development. Through its cloud service can process an enormous a tremendous amount of medical data, AWS has already partnered with many leading biomedical companies in drug development, especially with AstraZeneca in the fight against COVID -19, and with Grail in the fight against cancer.

When it comes to processing the growing amount of data associated with the biomedical industry, Nvidia has also become a major player. At Innotech Expo, Mona Flores, Nvidia’s global head of medical AI, pointed out that Nvidia is using Deep Learning to develop customized data processing and analytics for medical AI applications. Nvidia has particularly focused on the convergence of edge computing and federated learning: Nvidia’s GPUs, for example, have been integrated into medical edge devices such as mobile MRI scanners. Through federated learning, for example, Nvidia has worked with 20 medical facilities around the world to collect data for training models without compromising patient privacy. The resulting model can predict with 95% accuracy whether a patient will need a ventilator within 24 hours of arriving in the emergency room.
