GGG Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire 3D Printer Manufacturer
|December 9, 2014 -- New York, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) ("Graphene 3D, GGG") is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire Boots Industries Inc., ("Boots Industries"), a Canadian 3D printer manufacturer. The LOI highlights include Graphene 3D's intention to purchase all Boots Industries assets and to hire the team of Boots Industries in an all share transaction capped at $500,000 CA. Graphene 3D and Boots Industries' team plan to create a proprietary 3D printer with the capability of printing functional and electronic devices and optimized to maximize performance of Graphene 3D functional printing materials.|
Founded in 2012 in Quebec City, Boots Industries is a key player in the Canadian 3D printing market. Boots' BI V2.0, a large-volume, fully featured 3D printer was positively received, with several hundred orders placed. Boots Industries has since made further innovations with its latest model, the BI V2.5.
Daniel Stolyarov, CEO of Graphene 3D commented, "The goal of Graphene 3D is to introduce a 3D printing ecosystem, including a 3D printer and functional materials, capable of printing operational and electronic devices." He continued, "The team at Boots Industries have been successful to date in the development and sale of high-quality 3D printers, and we have the utmost confidence in their team's capabilities to develop a multi-material printer optimized for Graphene 3D materials."
"We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to develop a 3D printer capable of printing operational devices with functional materials. The entire Boots Industries team is looking forward to working within the Graphene 3D team on the next revolution in 3D printing." said Jean Le Bouthillier, CEO of Boots Industries.
The LOI is exclusive and non-binding prior to the execution of a definitive agreement. Neither party may solicit similar transactions for the duration until closing of the transaction or for a period of 30 days in the event that the LOI is terminated prior to the closing. The LOI calls for an all share deal, capped at a valuation issuance of $500,000 CA common shares. The LOI anticipates the Boots Industries' development staff joining Graphene Lab's R&D team. It is anticipated the definitive agreement will be concluded in the first quarter of 2015 and will be subject to exchange and board approval.
