(Nasdaq: SPRC) (“Company” or “SciSparc”), a specialty clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on the development of therapies to treat disorders and rare diseases of the central nervous system, announced today it signed a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) to spin off its advanced clinical stage pharmaceutical portfolio and its equity stake in SciSparc Nutraceuticals Inc. (collectively, the “Target Assets”). The LOI references a proposed asset and share purchase agreement (the “Agreement”), the definitive agreement of which is to be negotiated between the Company and Miza III Ventures Inc.

The Agreement is based on the approximate total USD 3.3 million (CAD 4.5 million) enterprise value of Miza, when including its USD 1.0 million cash position, and an approximate USD 11.6 million (CAD 15.8 million) value of SciSparc’s assets.

Pursuant to the LOI, SciSparc will sell, assign, convey and transfer to Miza the Target Assets in consideration for 63,300,000 common shares of Miza and up to 48,000,000 Miza contingent rights based on pre-determined milestones. Following the closing of such transaction, SciSparc would hold a controlling interest in Miza, the exact percentage of which is contingent on agreeing definitive terms between the parties. The resulting entity, of which SciSparc will hold a stake in the resulting entity ranging from a minimum of approximately 75% to a maximum of 84.53%, will be active in both the pharmaceutical and supplement sectors.
