Toronto, Ontario May 17, 2021 — Medivolve Inc. (“Medivolve”) (NEO:MEDV; OTC:COPRF; FRA:4NC) a healthcare technology and services company, today announced it has signed a binding agreement to acquire 100% of all outstanding shares of Marbella, a nonsterile compounded California state licensed and insured pharmacy. This acquisition advances Medivolve’s growth strategy and expands its ability to deliver patient care through immediate access to pharmaceutical distribution throughout the state of California.
“The acquisition of Marbella Pharmacy is an important step forward in executing on our strategic growth strategy,” said David Preiner, CEO of Medivolve. “With Marbella, we have access to distribute pharmaceuticals, and soon COVID-19 vaccinations in the fifth-largest economy in the world. We will continue to invest in the resources and partnerships that advance our mission to harness the transformative power of technology to help more people live healthier lives.”
Located in San Juan Capistrano, California, Marbella is an open-door retail pharmacy specializing in traditional medication and non-sterile compounded products, immunizations, and specialty and maintenance medications. Marbella Pharmacy also provides no cost door-to-door prescription delivery service and is reputed for servicing the underserved and worker’s compensation patients. The pharmacy is CalVax approved and is eligible to participate in the California COVID-19 Vaccination. It is in the process of attaining vaccine allocations from the State of California.
“Attaining the CalVax licensing was an important milestone in authorizing us to administer vaccinations to our immediate customer base in the San Juan Capistrano area. Now, in partnership with Medivolve, we can extend our medical care, diagnostic testing and vaccination services across the state of California, practically overnight,” said James Harmon, CEO, and owner of Marbella Pharmacy. “We are pleased to be partnering with Medivolve in a joint mission to increase healthcare accessibility, reliability and efficiency for more people at this critical time in our history.”
This news comes on the heels of two announcements key to the company’s strategic growth plans last week. First, Medivolve announced, along with Marvel Diagnostics, that BlowFISH, a non-invasive exhaled breath diagnostic technology for COVID-19, has successfully completed first stage clinical testing. The company believes the technology has implications for a variety of respiratory illnesses and is aligned with its goal to pursue massively deployable solutions that improve human health over the long-term. Medivolve also announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Electronic Health Record application and all associated intellectual property from Myosin. According to Medivolve, the development of the app is key to the company’s goal of creating a subscription-based model where users and clinicians can access a singular health management platform under the Medivolve umbrella.
Medivolve also announces the cancellation of the previously announced binding Letter of Intent to acquire a 100% equity interest in Modern Rx LLC (see the Company’s press release dated March 16, 2021). Medivolve has determined that the acquisition of the Marbella Pharmacy will be a better fit for the Company’s business going forward.
