CEN Biotech Announces the Termination of Merger Agreement

By: PRLog

WINDSOR, Ontario - Nov. 27, 2019 - PRLog -- On June 21, 2019, CEN Biotech, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Merger Agreement (the "Merger Agreement") with Caduceus Software Systems Corp., a Wyoming corporation ("CSOC") and Caduceus Merger Sub, Inc., a Wyoming corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of CSOC (the "Merger Sub").  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company, the Merger Sub and CSOC agreed to effect a merger transaction, pursuant to which the Company would merge with and into the Merger Sub, with the Company surviving and being a wholly owned subsidiary of CSOC (the "Merger").

The Merger Agreement was subsequently amended to extend the termination date under the Merger Agreement (i.e., the date following which a party to the Merger Agreement may terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger and the transactions in the Merger Agreement have not closed as of that time) from August 30, 2019 to December 31, 2019 and also to remove the prohibition in the Merger Agreement from the Company soliciting or initiating discussions with third parties regarding other acquisition proposals.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company had the unilateral right to terminate the Merger Agreement in the event that the Company's due diligence review of CSOC and Merger Sub were unsatisfactory to the Company in its sole discretion.  Following a careful due diligence review of CEN and Merger Sub, the Board of the Company decided that such due diligence review was unsatisfactory, and therefore the Company terminated the Merger Agreement as of November 20, 2019.
