MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 25, 2017) - Relevium Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RLV)(FRANKFURT:6BX) (the "Company" or "Relevium"), a publicly traded corporation strategically focused on the acquisition and building of e-retail brands, products and technologies in the health and wellness market, is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-binding Letter Of Intent (the "LOI") to acquire an American based nutraceutical brand that sells products direct to consumers primarily through the Amazon.com channel in the Vitamins and Dietary Supplements category. The transaction value is currently estimated at US$1.35 million, which shall be subject to adjustment based upon a multiple of earnings before income taxes.
- Non-binding LOI for a Nutraceutical brand
- Targeted to close by November 30, 2017
- RLV Executes on guidance issued August 2, 2017
Subject to the positive outcome of a short due diligence period, the negotiation and execution of a mutually satisfactory definitive acquisition agreement and TSX Venture Exchange approval, management estimates that the transaction should close around November 30, 2017. Pursuant to regulatory guidelines, further financial details and related fees regarding the acquisition will be disclosed at the closing of the transaction.

Once closed, it is intended that the acquired assets will be transferred to Relevium and the operations will be integrated into the current operations being managed by the Company.
Aurelio Useche, President and CEO of Relevium Technologies stated: "We have been diligently looking at accretive assets to add to our portfolio since the acquisition of BioGanix and we are very pleased to execute another line item from our 2017 guidance laid out on August 2, 2017."
Mr. Useche continued: "Once closed, this transaction will further demonstrate Management's ability to execute on the M&A strategy and should contribute to top line revenue and EBITDA for Fiscal 2018. Operationally speaking we are ready to continue acquiring, integrating and optimizing brands. The current M&A pipeline remains very healthy and in line with previously stated numbers. We look forward to concluding more transactions on an aggressive schedule."
