NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TechCare Corp. (OTCQB: TECR), a technology company with a revolutionary delivery platform that uses vapor technology for natural health, wellness and beauty treatments, today announced that on January 21, 2019, it entered into a joint venture contract with China-Israel Biological Technology Co. Ltd. ("CIB").
Pursuant to the agreement, TechCare's subsidiary, Novomic Ltd. ("Novomic") and CIB agreed to form a Chinese joint venture company in China ("JV"). The JV will focus on the field of health and cosmetics, including medical care, home care, hair care and body and skin care, in order to develop a comprehensive and broad range of health, wellness, beauty and home products for customers by utilizing TechCare's patented technology of vaporization of natural and plant-based compounds. The JV intends to sell its products in the Greater China region, including mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, directly or through others.
As part of the joint venture contract, CIB has agreed to invest $1,000,000 in the JV for 60% of its share capital and Novomic has agreed to invest $666,667 in the JV for 40% of its share capital. It was further agreed that Novomic's holdings in the JV shall not be diluted for any investment in the JV at a pre-money valuation of less than $10 million, and that Novomic will maintain at least 20% of the JV's share capital, until an initial public offering, merger or acquisition transaction of the JV.
In addition, TechCare has entered into a subscription agreement with ICB Biotechnology Investments Ltd., an Israeli publicly traded company controlled by CIB, pursuant to which ICB has agreed to invest up to $500,000 in TechCare in two separate tranches of $250,000 each. The first tranche is expected to be invested upon the obtaining of ICB's shareholders approval and the second tranche is expected to be invested upon the formation of the JV and the assignment of certain IP Rights by Novomic to the JV.
"We believe that this is an important milestone for TechCare, as this transaction helps position our entry into the Chinese market and to potentially provide further investment in the future development of our technology products for the health and the cosmetic segments," commented Zvi Yemini, Chairman of TechCare.
