SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CollabRx, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLRX) ("CollabRx" or "the Company"), today announced that it had received notice from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("Nasdaq") that the Company's proposed transaction with Medytox Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:MMMS) ("Medytox") when completed would constitute a business combination that results in a "change of control" as that term is defined in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5110(a). Accordingly, the post-transaction entity would be required to successfully complete the Nasdaq listing application process and satisfy all criteria for initial listing on Nasdaq.
"We expected this determination from Nasdaq based on the recent announcement of the signing of a definitive merger agreement between CollabRx and Medytox," said Thomas Mika, President & CEO of CollabRx, Inc. "We are fully prepared to submit the requisite initial listing application, and we believe the post-merger company will meet all criteria for initial listing on Nasdaq, except possibly the minimum bid price requirement of $4.00 per share. Notwithstanding, we have structured the capitalization of the post-merger company in a way that will optimize our chances of meeting or exceeding that requirement."
Mika continued: "In addition to a compelling business opportunity that we see in the merged companies, this transaction combines the substantial value represented by Medytox's high growth and profitability with CollabRx's trading volume on the Nasdaq – a combination that should result in a highly liquid, growth platform for continued expansion of the merged company."
Closing of the merger is subject to, among other things, gaining approvals from the stockholders of both companies, receipt of regulatory approvals, approval of the listing application for the combined entity and the listing of the additional shares of CollabRx common stock to be issued in connection with the proposed transaction, as well as other customary closing conditions. The Company expects to close the merger transaction early in its second fiscal quarter (ending September 30, 2015).
As of March 31, 2015, the Company's total shares issued and outstanding were 10,469,120.
