Levon Resources Ltd. Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire SciVac Ltd.

From: Marketwire – Canada

Mar-20-2015 8:30 AM

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – March 20, 2015) –
Levon Resources Ltd. (“Levon”) (TSX:LVN)(OTCQX:LVNVF)
(BERLIN:LO9)(FRANKFURT:LO9) and SciVac Ltd. (“SciVac”)
announced today that they have entered into an arrangement
agreement pursuant to which Levon will acquire 100% of the issued
and outstanding ordinary shares of SciVac by way of a court-approved
plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”).

“I am excited to announce this transaction with SciVac, as I believe
it will generate tremendous value for Levon shareholders,” stated Ron
Tremblay, President and Chief Executive Officer of Levon. “In a difficult
market for resource issuers, we have chosen to preserve capital while
seeking to identify alternatives to create shareholder value. The
acquisition of SciVac gives Levon ownership of Sci-B-Vac(TM), a
commercial stage, potentially best in class hepatitis B vaccine which
could address a significant market opportunity. Levon shareholders will
also maintain an interest in Levon’s existing business and assets by
receiving shares of a newly formed company which will hold Levon’s
existing resource assets.”

Pursuant to the Arrangement, Levon shareholders will receive one new
common share of Levon (each a “New Levon Share”) and 0.5 of a
commonshare (each, a “Spinco Share”) of 1027949 BC Ltd., a newly
formedexploration company (“Spinco”) in exchange for each common
share of Levon (each a “Levon Share”) held by them. Upon closing
of the Arrangement, Levon shareholders will hold 100% of the
issued and understanding Spinco Shares and 31.6% of the issued and
outstanding New Levon Shares, with the former holders of SciVac
Shares holding the remaining 68.4% of the issued and outstanding
New Levon Shares.

In addition to acquiring all of the issued and outstanding shares
of SciVac, Levon will retain CAD $27 million in cash. All other
assets and liabilities of Levon will be transferred to or will be
assumed by Spinco. At the closing of the Arrangement, Levon expects
that in addition to holding all of Levon’s mineral properties,
including Levon’s flagship Cordero Project, SpinCo will have
approximately $20.1M in working capital, including approximately
$3M in cash, a $1.1M convertible debenture as well as 35,178,572
shares of Pershing Gold Corporation with current estimated value
of $16M. SpinCo will also hold a $2M Mexican value added tax
receivable that Levon expects will be recovered. The total of 22.1M
represents approximately 48% of Levon’s working capital as at
December 31, 2014.

“SciVac is pleased to announce this transaction with Levon in furtherance
of our goal of expanding market opportunities for SciVac products in
development, including Sci-B-Vac, our third-generation hepatitis B
vaccine,” said Dr. Curtis Lockshin, Chief Executive Officer for SciVac.
“Sci-B-Vac has already been approved in several countries, including
Israel, where it has been provided to hundreds of thousands of newborn
children. We intend to pursue marketing approvals for Sci-B-Vac in the
United States and other territories worldwide, initially focused on
at-risk populations such as End-Stage Renal Disease and HIV patients.
In addition, we believe the transaction will permit SciVac to cultivate
a pipeline of other therapeutics, utilizing novel treatment approaches
in various disease areas with unmet needs.”

SciVac is currently a privately owned company, of which approximately
45% of the shares are owned by OPKO Health, Inc. (NYSE:OPK).
OPKO’s CEO and Chairman, Dr. Phillip Frost, commented, “This
transaction with Levon presented an opportunity to unlock meaningful
value for OPKO shareholders via OPKO’s ownership interest in SciVac.
SciVac is a commercial-stage biotech leader in protein engineering whose
flagship product, Sci-B-Vac, is a superior next generation hepatitis
B vaccine. Sci-B-Vac has received approval for use in ten countries
including Israel, where it captures half the market for neonatal
hepatitis B vaccinations, and is offered to adults who do not respond
to competing hepatitis B vaccines. It appears positioned to expand
the billion dollar global hepatitis B vaccine market upon successful
completion of the FDA approval process.”

The board of directors of Levon has unanimously approved the
transaction and all directors and officers of Levon, collectively
holding approximately 10.08% of the number of Levon Shares and
76.94% of the number of options to purchase Levon Shares
(the “Levon Options”) anticipated to be entitled to vote at a special
meeting to consider the Arrangement, have agreed to vote in favour
of the Arrangement.

Arrangement Details

The Arrangement will be effected by way of a court-approved plan
of arrangement and will require the approval of at least 2/3 of the
votes cast by Levon’s shareholders and optionholders at a special
meeting expected to take place in April 2015 (the “Meeting”). The
transaction is also subject to applicable regulatory approvals,
including approval of the TSX, and the satisfaction of certain closing
conditions customary in transactions of this nature.

The Arrangement will result, through a series of transactions, in:

—  Levon shareholders receiving one New Levon Share and 0.5 of a
Spinco

Share for each Levon share currently held by them;

—  holders of SciVac Shares receiving that number of New Levon
Shares

representing 68.4% of the issued and outstanding New Levon Shares in

exchange for the acquisition by Levon of all of the issued and

outstanding SciVac Shares;

—  the change of Levon’s name to “SciVac Inc.”; and

—  the change of Spinco’s name to “Levon Resources Ltd.”

Holders of outstanding Levon stock options may exercise their
options until the effective time of the Arrangement, at which time
they will be cancelled.

On completion of the Arrangement, Spinco will own and operate
the existing business of Levon and Levon will own and operate
the existing business of SciVac. Levon shareholders who receive
New Levon Shares and Spinco Shares under the Arrangement will hold
100% of the issued and outstanding Spinco Shares and 31.6% of the
issued and outstanding New Levon Shares, with the former holders
of SciVac Shares holding the remaining 68.4% of the issued and
outstanding New Levon Shares.

After taking into consideration, among other things, the terms of
the Arrangement, the unanimous recommendation of a special committee
of Levon directors established to review the Arrangement and discussions
with its legal and financial advisors, Levon’s board of directors has
unanimously concluded that the Arrangement is in the best interests of
Levon and has approved the Arrangement. Levon’s board of directors
intends to recommend in the management information circular to be mailed
in connection with the Meeting that Levon’s shareholders and optionholders
vote in favour of the Arrangement.

Subject to SciVac’s right to match, Levon’s board of directors may
terminate the arrangement agreement in favour of an unsolicited
superior proposal upon payment of a US$1 million break fee to SciVac.

Advisors

Levon’s legal counsel is Stikeman Elliott LLP and Dorsey &
Whitney LLP. Cassel Salpeter & Co., LLC is Levon’s financial advisor.

Reflecting on 2014, Thoughts on 2015

 
“The person who says that it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.” 

– Ancient Chinese Proverb

 

At Cassel Salpeter & Co., we have been getting it done for years in the most interesting of times.

Reflecting on 2014, Thoughts for 2015

As 2015 begins, it is important to reflect on the past year, evaluate our performance, and take the necessary steps to ensure that we are best prepared for things to come.

The good news: Things are looking bright on a national level. Despite a volatile stock market and challenging international situations in 2014, we are excited that 2014 helped to position us for a strong 2015. Today, the market is creating opportunities to sell your company or raise capital.

Moreover, in our backyard, Florida continues to gain increasing importance as a hub for investment, deal activity, technology and general business growth. There are many opportunities to take advantage of this resurgent climate and position your business for continued growth.

Changes in 2015 to Watch That May 
Impact Your Business

There is a high likelihood that changes in 2015 in interest rates, unemployment rates, demand curves, and the prices of oil, real estate, and health care will affect your business in one way or another.

No matter what vertical your business operates in, 2015 presents a strong market for sellers with more buyers than sellers in the market as well as attractive financing options available for buyers. However, it’s important for middle-market business owners to keep a close pulse on these key changes in order to protect their best interest and ensure their businesses are in the strongest position in 2015. As always, it’s important to consult trusted professionals with subject-matter expertise who can help develop the right strategic plans to overcome the obstacles and seize the opportunities.

fusion,” said Dr. Phillip Frost, CEO and Chairman of OPKO Health, Inc.
(NYSE:OPK), and Tiger Media’s largest beneficial owner. “The

dominant companies in this industry speaks for itself, and I believe
this will be a major player in the space.”

partner who would also be able to expand our China operations. We

excellent opportunity to realize increased value on their investment.”

TBO’s executive leadership represents over half a century of combined
experience in the industry and is led by Chairman Michael Brauser. An

company, respectively, following the Acquisition. Approximately 65% of

the Tiger Media meeting will be required for domestication in Delaware.
The structure of the transaction will be in the form of an acquisition
with TBO merging into a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tiger Media, with the

(OTCQB: FOHL) (the “Company”) announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement that provides for the acquisition of the Company by a group consisting of HGI Funding LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Harbinger Group Inc., and certain of the Company’s other common and preferred shareholders (the “Consortium”). The members of the Consortium as a group beneficially own approximately 88.6% of the Company’s common stock. The acquisition will be accomplished through FOHG Holdings, LLC (“Holdings”), an entity controlled by the Consortium that was formed for the purpose of the transaction.

Under the merger agreement, the Company’s shareholders who are not members of the Consortium will receive $0.27 per share in cash upon completion of the transaction. The price represents a premium of 50% to the closing price of the Company’s shares onSeptember 27, 2013, the last trading day before the announcement by the Consortium of its proposal, and a premium of 46% over the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the 45 trading days prior to that date.

The Company’s board of directors delegated to its lead independent, disinterested director the authority to review the initial transaction proposal from, and negotiate terms of the proposal with, the Consortium, with the assistance of legal and financial advisors. The lead director completed a thorough review of the proposal, considered alternatives, negotiated improved terms of the Consortium’s proposal and concluded that the transaction with the Consortium was fair to and in the best interests of the Company’s shareholders other than the members of the Consortium. Based on the recommendation of the lead director, the merger agreement was also approved by the full board other than William Harley and Thomas Lynch, who recused themselves from the deliberations.

In addition, in connection with the execution of the merger agreement, the Company and Holdings entered into a new employment agreement with Thomas Lynch, chief executive officer of the Company, which will take effect only upon the consummation of the merger. Under the new employment agreement, Mr. Lynch agreed to continue to serve as chief executive officer for three years following the merger.

Completion of the transaction is subject to certain customary conditions, including receipt of shareholder approval. The merger agreement must be approved by the affirmative vote of the holders of at least two-thirds of all outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock. If completed, the transaction will result in the Company becoming privately-held and its common stock will no longer be quoted on the OTCQB.

Further details concerning the merger agreement and related documents, including the employment agreement with Mr. Lynch, will be described in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
