ATLANTA & FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clinigence Holdings, Inc. (“Clinigence” or the “Company”) (OTC: CLNH), a pioneer in clinical data integration, clinical quality reporting and population health analytics, and Accountable Healthcare America, Inc. (“AHA”), a leading medical management platform company and provider network, today are providing an update to their shareholders.
As previously announced on February 3, 2020, Clinigence and AHA were on the verge of executing a definitive merger agreement to merge the two companies in late January when they received a confidential Letter Of Intent (“LOI”) to acquire both companies as well as several roll-up acquisitions from a Nasdaq-listed Special Purpose Acquisition Company (“SPAC”). The Boards of Directors of both companies made a decision to execute the LOI with the SPAC and to proceed with the process of combining into the SPAC. The process is still ongoing, with PCAOB-certified audits of all entities expected to be completed by June 30.
To increase shareholder value and to facilitate the transaction with the SPAC, the Board of Directors of Clinigence Holdings decided to sell certain assets of the Company to AHA. The sale of the assets was completed on Friday, May 29. Under the terms of the transaction, Clinigence Health, a subsidiary of Clinigence Holdings, has transferred certain of its intellectual property assets and patents, as well as liabilities of approximately $3.2 million, to AHA for an aggregate purchase price of $15 million of Preferred Stock of AHA. Net of the liabilities, this reflects an equity value of approximately $11.8 million. Excluded from the sale are all of the Company’s client contracts, cash, accounts receivable and the name Clinigence. The Preferred Stock of AHA will automatically convert into Common Stock of the SPAC if the transaction with the SPAC is consummated, or into 3,750,000 shares of Common Stock of AHA, based upon a $4 per share valuation, in the event the transaction with the SPAC is not consummated
Concomitant with the transaction, Clinigence Health has entered into a License Agreement with AHA pursuant to which Clinigence Health has licensed certain rights to the IP and Clinigence Health’s ongoing operations will continue as before uninterrupted.
There can be no assurance that the proposed transaction with the SPAC will occur at all. In the event that the transaction with the SPAC does not occur, Clinigence and AHA currently intend to then complete their previously announced merger, although there can be no assurance that the proposed transaction between Clinigence and AHA will occur at all. If the transaction with the SPAC does occur, management from Clinigence and AHA will be charged with leading the new company.
“The Boards of Clinigence and AHA are excited to be able to bring this opportunity to our shareholders,” stated Warren Hosseinion, M.D., Chairman of the Board of Clinigence. “We believe that this potential transaction with the SPAC is the best strategic move for us, if it can be achieved, and will allow us to become Nasdaq-listed and give us access to incremental equity capital to accelerate our growth. We expect to be an active participant in the consolidation of our industry.”

Proposed Transaction Timeline and Listing of Common Stock on Nasdaq
