“Our intended partnership and joint solution is truly driven by customer demand in the China market,” James L. Mandel, CEO of OrangeHook, Inc. stated. “Healthcare providers desire flexibility and performance quality, which are offered by the OrangeHook applications, as well as the superior data efficiency, mobility, and built-in data protection that is compliant with all healthcare standards, which we believe only OrangeHook solutions deliver. OrangeHook is excited about this planned relationship with SCG and the proven experience and background of the SCG management team.”

A key component of the term sheet calls for SCG to purchase between 500,000 and 2 million shares of OrangeHook’s common stock and/or payment of royalties depending on the timing and amount of the stock purchase. All equity purchases are to be based upon a valuation of a minimum of $20 per share. Closing of the transaction is subject to conditions including, among other things, completion of definitive agreements, board approvals, and possible regulatory approvals by both the United States and Chinese governments. Additional details of the transaction will be disclosed once a definitive agreement is executed.

MINNEAPOLIS, March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Through a recently signed Agreement between Medsis, a U.S. based big data company, and the Colombian Government’s National Victims Repair Unit, an initiative was launched to modernize the entire Colombian citizens database system by means of the donation of Medsis’ big data management technology platform, CEREBRO, and OrangeHook resources. The system will convert all existing databases into a single unified civil registry. The use of CEREBRO, along with advanced state-of-the-art security protocols and algorithms, will allow identities of all registered victims to be safely verified and stored, creating efficiencies in all programs within the National Victims Repair Unit and potentially beyond. The National Victims Repair Unit was created to facilitate reparation payments which are a key component of the Colombian Government’s recent peace agreement with the FARC in their efforts to achieve a conclusion of the country’s 60-year-old internal conflict.

The project will provide a platform for the distribution of benefits to more than 8 million identified victims. Under terms of the agreement payments of approximately 1.2 Trillion Colombian Pesos ($400 Million USD) will be distributed annually over the next ten years, over 12 trillion pesos ($4B USD) in total.

WAIV, an Australian company focused on payment applications, will be the financial bridge between the National Victims Repair Unit and the persons registered in it. Together with a known payment network for the WAIVCARD and the participation of a Colombian bank, WAIV will be responsible for integrating the MEDSIS: CEREBRO platform to accurately disburse the reparations and financial humanitarian aid to the people registered in the database. The integration with WAIV as a processor makes possible the accurate and timely procedure to manage and disburse the funds to the victims over the next 10 years.

DAX CABRERA, President and CEO of Medsis stated, “This historic project, to help heal the nation of Colombia, is exactly what Medsis was designed for. The vision of Colombia and of director ALAN JARA to provide humanitarian aid throughout Colombia, is an important global goal of Medsis.”

John Fenga, CEO of WAIV, expressed his satisfaction at being part of this initiative that will allow relief to victims of Colombia's unfortunate internal conflict, “We’re excited to be a part of this incredible opportunity,” said Fenga, “Helping the less fortunate is a key part of the WAIV philosophy.”

OrangeHook, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based company, is an identification authentication company with systems and applications focused in healthcare, government, and data transfer accuracy.

James Mandel, OrangeHook CEO, stated, “We are delighted to be recognized as a leader in identification processes, and look forward to our continuing involvement in this historic program.”

-Upon completion, combined company will be an SEC reporting, publicly traded and fully integrated SaaS-based conglomerate of disruptive technology solutions centered on healthcare, big data, safety, and banking
-Transaction designed to establish public company platform that adds the OrangeHook suite of product and service offerings to Nuvel’s existing operations, substantially reduce Nuvel’s existing debt and preserve value opportunity for existing Nuvel shareholders

LOS GATOS, Calif. and MINNEAPOLIS, July 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvel Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK:NUVL) has entered into a definitive merger agreement with OrangeHook, Inc., of Minneapolis, Minnesota, a privately-held Software as a Service (SaaS) conglomerate. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be fully reporting and publicly-traded and will consist of five operating entities that use complementary proprietary technology to offer disruptive and potentially life-changing applications centered on healthcare, big-data, safety and banking.

The material terms of the agreement are summarized in a Current Report on Form 8-K of Nuvel filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, July 8, 2016. In the transaction, Nuvel will issue shares of two new classes of preferred stock to OrangeHook shareholders in exchange for all of OrangeHook’s preferred and common stock. Following the merger, Nuvel will effect a reverse split of its common stock, after which the preferred shares issued in the merger to OrangeHook’s common shareholders will convert into one share of common stock in the combined company for each share of OrangeHook common stock held immediately prior to the merger, and a substantial majority of Nuvel’s existing debt will be exchanged for equity in the combined company.

The existing shareholders of Nuvel will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing growth opportunities in the combined company. Such shareholders who hold Nuvel common stock immediately after closing of the merger (or a record date declared shortly thereafter), will be eligible to receive up to an aggregate of 357,143 shares of Nuvel common stock on a pro-rata basis if the Nuvel, Inc. operating entity achieves a $1.5 million revenue milestone, as measured and within the timeframes specified in the agreement. Based on current projections, management of the combined company is optimistic about the achievement of the earn-out milestone.

For purposes of structuring the transaction, the parties used an assumed $14 per share valuation for OrangeHook’s common stock, which is the same valuation that OrangeHook used to structure the prior acquisitions of its other portfolio companies. Based on the assumed $14 per share valuation of OrangeHook common stock, the value of these prior transactions totaled approximately $53.2 million. This assumed valuation of OrangeHook common stock was arbitrarily determined based upon pro-forma financial projections of OrangeHook management and there exists no quantifiable valuation analysis to support the same, aside from internal projections based upon existing contracts of the combined companies, among other factors.

Following the merger, the combined company will change its name to OrangeHook and plans to trade under a yet to be determined OrangeHook-related trading symbol. The combined company will immediately encompass the expanded offerings of the OrangeHook portfolio within the newly formed and recapitalized company. Subsequent to the merger, the combined company plans to apply for listing on a national securities exchange as soon as reasonably practical.

Rick Resnick, Nuvel’s CEO, commented, “This transaction allows Nuvel to more freely move forward as a result of the elimination of the vast majority of our current debt, which we believe positions the company for substantial growth and stability. We believe the transaction offers a fair exchange for existing Nuvel common shareholders through the participation in a future earn-out distribution based on a revenue milestone we are confident of achieving.”

James Mandel, OrangeHook CEO, commented, “We are very pleased to achieve the next step in our company’s evolution, which sets the stage for the public launch of our suite of disruptive and potentially life-changing applications designed to change the world we live in for the better in areas including mobile payments, healthcare information, billing and payments, data compression and storage, and emergency responder coordination. Although we acknowledge that we are setting a high bar with our operating goals, we strongly believe that customer acceptance of our solutions and the real world need for the same will validate our optimism. We expect the coordinated and sophisticated deployment of our product and service offerings will create substantial value for existing OrangeHook and Nuvel shareholders, as well as future investors.”

Subject to satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions set forth in the merger agreement, the parties expect to close on the merger portion of the transaction in August 2016 and to effect the post-merger reverse split recapitalization to be completed by approximately Labor Day.
