(“Covid”) for the acquisition of all of the shares of COVID
Since announcing the interim agreement with Covid on April 20, 2020, the Company has been completing diligence on Covid, the personal protection equipment (“PPE”) industry and anticipated demand for PPE. The Company is of the view that the demand for PPE will increase in the future as Canadian and worldwide economies, education and securities re-open. The
anticipated demand for PPE the Company believes will transcend the current need arising from the pandemic and will become a requirement of the “new normal”. Covid has established manufacturing capacity through the acquisition of state of the art mask making equipment, including the purchase of a FLK120 surgical mask making machine and over 5 tonnes of raw material for mask production. Covid has additional cash and manufacturing assets having a replacement value of approximately $500,000. Since the interim agreement, Covid has entered into purchase agreements for approximately 1 million masks to private enterprise.
Following closing of the purchase and sale, Covid will relocate its manufacturing facilities to the Delta, BC facilities of Micron and be managed by the existing Micron team, together with Covid founder Harveer Sidhu.
Micron will continue the research and development of its Pharmavore and Organivore waste digesters from its Delta facilities. In particular, the Pharmavore digestor is anticipated to enter testing and trials with an industry partner in Q2 2020.
The Company has in excess of $3M to allocate to its waste digestor business and it is anticipated that the PPE business line will be self-financing based on anticipated sales.
Closing of the acquisition is anticipated to be completed by the end of May 2020.
In this time of crisis Covid is preparing to deliver needed PPE by providing Canadian-made, high quality, vapour barrier technology (masks, protective garments), protecting them from biological hazards, pathogens, and superbugs.
