Reading Time: 8 minutes


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Loop Insights Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of the reverse takeover transaction (the “RTO”), which was previously announced by news release on February 5, 2019, between the former Loop Insights Inc. (“Old Loop”) and AlkaLi3 Resources Inc. (“AlkaLi3”) and the oversubscribed closing of the previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Financing”) of Old Loop.  As previously announced by news release dated May 7, 2019, the RTO was approved at the annual and special meetings of each of the Loop and AlkaLi3 shareholders held on May 7, 2019.

Reverse Takeover

As a result of the RTO, Old Loop and AlkaLi3 amalgamated and former shareholders of Old Loop and AlkaLi3 are now shareholders of the amalgamated corporation (“Loop”, the “Resulting Issuer” or the “Company”). Immediately prior to the completion of the amalgamation, AlkaLi3 completed a consolidation of all of its issued and outstanding common shares on the basis of ten (10) old common shares for one (1) new common share and continued from the Province of Alberta to the Province of British Columbia. The Resulting Issuer will carry on the business of Old Loop under the name “Loop Insights Inc.”

Pursuant to the amalgamation, holders of common shares of each of Old Loop and AlkaLi3 received one (1) Resulting Issuer common share in exchange for each common share of Old Loop and AlkaLi3, as applicable, held.  Additionally, holders of options to purchase common shares of AlkaLi3 and Od Loop, holders of convertible debentures of Old Loop and holders of warrants of Old Loop, including all securities issued pursuant to the Financing (as described below), received one (1) equal convertible security to purchase Resulting Issuer common shares in exchange for each Old Loop option, AlkaLi3 option, Old Loop convertible debenture and/or Od Loop warrant, as applicable, held. As a result of the RTO and the Financing, there are now 58,889,377 common shares issued and outstanding in the capital of the Company, of which 39,350,100 are escrowed as Tier 2 Surplus escrow shares and will be released incrementally over 36 months.

Further details regarding the RTO are contained in the Company and AlkaLi3’s Joint Information Circular dated April 11, 2019 (the “Information Circular”) which has been filed on SEDAR at


The Financing involved the issuance of 3,754,250 units (the “Units”) of Old Loop at a price of $0.80 for gross proceeds of $3,003,400. Each Unit consisted of one (1) common share in the capital of Old Loop (a “Common Share”) and one (1) common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”) of Old Loop.  Each of the Units were exchanged for securities of the Resulting Issuer pursuant to the RTO on a one for one basis.  Each Warrant will be exercisable for two years to purchase an additional Common Share at a price of $1.50. Proceeds from the Financing are expected to be used as disclosed in the Information Circular.

In connection with the Financing, the Company paid to certain arm’s length parties finder’s fees comprised of (i) cash equal to eight percent (8%) of the gross proceeds received from subscribers sourced by the finders, and (ii) share purchase warrants exercisable to acquire up to 173,340 common shares of the Company (the “Finder Warrants”). Each of the Finder Warrants were exchanged for securities of the Resulting Issuer bearing substantially the same terms pursuant to the RTO on a one for one basis.  The Finder Warrants will be exercisable for a period of two years from the date of issuance at a price of $1.50 per common share.

Further details regarding the Financing are contained in the Information Circular and in AlkaLi3’s news release dated May 3, 2019, both of which have been filed on SEDAR at

Long Blockchain Corp. Enters into Definitive Agreement for Sale of its Beverage Subsidiary Long Island Brand Beverages




Reading Time: 3 minutes

Farmingdale, NY, Sept. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Long Blockchain Corp. (OTCPink: LBCC) (“Long Blockchain” or the “Company”) announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of its wholly-owned beverage subsidiary, Long Island Brand Beverages LLC (“LIBB”), to ECC Ventures 2 Corp. (“ECC2”) (TSXV: ETWO.P). LIBB operates in the non-alcohol ready-to-drink segment of the beverage industry under its flagship brand ‘The Original Long Island Brand Iced Tea®’. ECC2 is a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

“This transaction is a significant milestone for the Company, and following its close later this year, it will allow us to concentrate our efforts on our underlying loyalty operating business,” stated Andy Shape, CEO of Long Blockchain. “Our loyalty platform has experienced strong growth over the past year with new and existing customers, and we look forward to building on that progress through our partnership with Stran Promotional Solutions.”

Under the terms of the agreement, ECC2 will acquire 100% of LIBB. The transaction consideration payable to LBCC will consist of CAD$500,000 in cash and 3,666,667 newly-issued shares of ECC2, with the share consideration subject to a working capital adjustment.

ECC2 has engaged Canaccord Genuity Corp. to complete a brokered private placement of subscription receipts for minimum gross proceeds of CAD$2,000,000 through the issuance of subscription receipts at a price no less than CAD$0.50 per subscription receipt. The proceeds of the private placement will be held in escrow, pending the receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals and completing all matters and conditions relating to the LIBB sale transaction. Closing of the LIBB sale transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including completion of the private placement or another brokered financing with gross proceeds of $2,000,000, consent by the TSX Venture Exchange to the transaction and delivery of audited financials for LIBB. The Company presently anticipates that the closing of the transaction will occur at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2019.

The LIBB sale transaction will be more fully described in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Forward Looking Statements:

This press release includes statements of the Company’s expectations, intentions, plans and beliefs that constitute “forward looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are intended to come within the safe harbor protection provided by those sections. These statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, relate to the discussion of the Company’s business strategies and its expectations concerning future operations, margins, sales, new products and brands, potential joint ventures, potential acquisitions, expenses, profitability, liquidity and capital resources and to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These also include statements relating to the anticipated consummation of the LIBB sale transaction and the benefits of the transaction to the Company.  These statements include any statement that does not directly relate to a historical or current fact.

These forward looking statements are made based on expectations and beliefs concerning future events affecting the Company and are subject to uncertainties, risks and factors relating to its operations and business environments, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond its control, that could cause its actual results to differ materially from those matters expressed or implied by these forward looking statements. These risks include the risk that the conditions to the LIBB sale transaction will not be satisfied or waived, the Company’s ability to develop and commercialize new technologies, the Company’s history of losses and expectation of further losses, its ability to expand its operations into blockchain technologies, its ability to develop or acquire new brands, the success of its marketing activities, the effect of competition in its industry and economic and political conditions generally, including the current economic environment and markets. More information about these and other factors are described in the reports the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited to the discussions contained under the caption “Risk Factors.” When considering these forward looking statements, you should keep in mind the cautionary statements in this press release and the reports the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Pharmagest Interactive: H1 2019 Results




Reading Time: 4 minutes

Villers-lès-Nancy, 20 September 2019 – 6:00 p.m. (CET)

H1 2019 Results

  • Continuing growth: +6.55%.
  • Gains in net profit from continuing operations: +8.50%.
  • Strong growth in adjusted EPS: +19.55%, boosted by an exceptional event in May 2019 (the sale of INTECUM shares to PHARMATHEK).
  • Commercial launch of the healthcare platform with the Marseille Public University Hospital (AP-HM).
  • Outlook for growth and profitability confirmed for H2 2019.


€m H1 2019 H1 2018 Change
Revenue 76.88 72.15 +6.55%
Operating Profit 18.65 17.37 +7.40%
Net Profit 14.59 12.15 +20.05%
Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Parent 13.70 11.41 +20.06%
Basic Earnings per Share (in €) 0.91 0.76 +19.55%

The financial statements for the six-month period ended 30 June 2019 were reviewed and adopted by PHARMAGEST INTERACTIVE’s Board of Directors, chaired by Thierry CHAPUSOT, on 20 September 2019. These interim consolidated financial statements were subject to a limited review by the Statutory Auditors.

  • Earnings growth at 30 June 2019

First-half revenue grew 6.55% to €76.88m from H1 2018. Like-for-like (excluding the Macrosoft Group acquisition in Italy), consolidated revenue amounted to €74.68m, up 3.50% from the 2018 first half.

The Group’s Operating Profit rose 7.40% to €18.65m at 30 June 2019.

  • Operating Profit for the Pharmacy – Europe Solutions Division amounted to €12.93m (+6.1%). The Pharmacy Italy Business Unit was recognised for six months compared to three months in H1 2018, following Macrosoft Group’s consolidation on 01.04.2018.
  • Operating Profit for the Health and Social Care Facilities Solutions Division was €3.45m, contracting marginally 2.8%. This decline reflected the adverse impact on AXIGATE of long administrative decision-making processes by hospitals, slowing the development of business.
  • For the e-Health Solutions and Fintech Division, Operating Profit rose to €2.27m, up 40.1%, despite Fintech’s poor performance in terms of operating profit.

Net Profit on that basis amounted to €14.59m (+20.05%) and Net Profit Attributable to Equity Holders of the Parent to €13.70m (+20.06%). At 30 June 2019, Basic Earnings per Share amounted to €0.91, up from €0.76 one year earlier (+19.55%).

       Net profit and earnings per share were boosted by the sale of 100% of the shares of the subsidiary INTECUM to PHARMATHEK. Excluding this exceptional event, Net Profit from Continuing Operations rose 8.50%.

·Consolidated balance sheet highlights 

      At 30 June 2019, Pharmagest Group’s gross cash position increased to €104.86m, compared to €95.78m at 30 June 2018.
      Equity attributable to the equity holders of the Parent at 30 June 2019 amounted to €115m.

·H1 2019 operating highlights

      ·In January 2019, Pharmagest Group acquired an equity stake in Embleema, a Franco-American start-up specialised in the secure sharing of personal health records through blockchain technology. This transaction exemplifies the Group’s strategic focus on developing innovative patient-centred solutions. Embleema’s latest partnerships with the Europe’s premier cancer centre, the Gustave Roussy Institute of Oncology, and the Servier and Pierre Fabre laboratories illustrate this strategy of placing the patients at the heart of the health system as active stakeholders in their own care.
      ·Pharmagest Group closed its acquisition of the equity stake in the Italian company, PHARMATHEK. As the Italian leader in pharmacy automation solutions, PHARMATHEK develops, manufactures and installs automated warehouses for all pharmacies. PHARMATHEK has operations in Italy, France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland and selected South American countries. This transaction strengthens Pharmagest Group’s portfolio of pharmacy automation solutions and businesses, consolidates its position in Europe, and accelerates its development in Italy.

·H2 2019 outlook

After several years of development, the commercialisation of Pharmagest Group’s platform will be launched in early October in Marseille. Based on their respective expertise as independent software vendors, AXIGATE, PHARMAGEST, MALTA, DICSIT and CEGEDIM were thus selected Marseille Public University Hospital (AP-HM) with a single objective: ensuring the coordination of the patient care pathway between the non-hospital and hospital sectors.

The technical completion of this gateway sets the stage for its deployment with hospital centres in France but also other healthcare professionals (such as nurses, physical therapist, etc.). This major services innovation reflects policies for improving quality across the entire patient care pathway from their home to residential health and social care facilities, a common priority of interest to all European countries.

Finally, the Group will continue to extend the reach of its business line expertise to new fields. Pharmagest Group has already identified new opportunities for growth in the automation of business lines, health centres and nursing homes. 

Based on these different developments, Pharmagest Group confirms its guidance for growth and profitability for the 2019 full year.

Financial calendar:

  • Participation in the MidCap Event in Paris on Monday 14 October 2019.
  • Publication of Q3 2019 sales: 15 November 2019 (after the close of trading).
  • Publication of FY 2019 annual sales: 15 February 2020 (after the close of trading).


Pharmagest Group is the French pharmacy information technology leader, with a market share of more than 44% and nearly 1,000 employees. The Group’s strategy is based on a core business of improving healthcare through information technology innovation and developing two priority areas: 1/ Services and technologies for healthcare professionals, with a focus on assisting pharmacies in patient medication compliance; and 2/ technologies for improving the efficacy of healthcare systems.

This strategy is executed through specialised business lines developed by Pharmagest Group: pharmacy IT solutions, e-Health solutions, solutions for healthcare professionals, hospital solutions, solutions for pharmaceutical laboratories, connected health devices and apps, and a sales financing marketplace…
