  • concurrent non-brokered private placement Offering of $6 million of Subscription Receipt Units issued by Subco (the “Offering”), and
  • the acquisition by UI of the Kelburn Mental Health & Addiction Recovery Centre (the “Kelburn Clinic”), an addiction treatment centre operating near Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Subco has received fully funded subscription agreements (either directly or held in broker accounts) for a total of $5.5 million under the Offering, and intends to complete an initial closing of the Offering on or before July 27, 2021.

Dr. Rami Batal, CEO of UI, noted “we are pleased to be within reach of completing the go-public Transaction.  Arriving at this milestone will strengthen and accelerate our push toward tackling the growing addiction problem by applying innovative, evidence-based, treatments and state-of-the-art care models.”
