Tuesday April 25, 3:11 pm ET
OCEANSIDE, NY--(MARKET WIRE)--Apr 25, 2006 -- APO Health, Inc. ("APO") (OTC BB:APOA.OB - News) and JUPITER Global Holdings, Corp. ("JUPITER") (Other OTC:JPHC.PK - News) today jointly announced their execution of a Definitive Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") pursuant to which APO has agreed, through a wholly owned subsidiary, to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding common shares of JUPITER, and JUPITER has agreed, at the closing of the transaction, to become a wholly owned subsidiary of APO. As consideration in the merger transaction, APO has agreed to exchange shares of its common stock ("the Issuable Shares") with JUPITER's shareholders at an exchange ratio, which is subject to adjustment under the Merger Agreement that values the JUPITER shares at $0.005 per common share.
Jan Stahl, the Chief Executive Officer of APO, commented, "APO is making a shift in its business future and JUPITER, and primarily its subsidiary, Macro Communications, Inc. (www.macrosouth.com), presented the best opportunity for us to build a significant operation under a new direction for our shareholders. Our aim was to chart a new course for APO that would result in accelerated growth and increased shareholder value. The challenges we have experienced in growing our health subsidiary prompted the development of our plan for change that included a process of looking for opportunities outside of the health industry and ultimately develop a business with holdings that could provide for significant value creation. Macro Communications, Inc. is a business that we believe has vast potential. It is currently a multimillion dollar operation that has a business plan which includes other acquisition candidates and a comprehensive strategy for growth and profit generation. We look forward to welcoming the JUPITER shareholders as APO shareholders and feel very strongly on the new combined entities moving forward."
Ray Hawkins, the Chief Executive Officer of JUPITER, commented further, "The execution of this agreement results from a diligently prepared and successfully executed plan that we had implemented to move JUPITER forward for the future growth of the company, and ultimately for the enhancement of value for the JUPITER shareholders. APO is a solid company which currently is a multimillion dollar operation, and we feel this merger provides a great opportunity for our shareholders' growth prospects. We are very pleased with the valuation that we received from APO and feel it is fair for our shareholders. We look forward to the consummation of this transaction and setting things in motion to develop a new path of success for the combined corporations."
The parties have agreed to use their best efforts to consummate the transaction by May 10, 2006, or as soon as practicable thereafter.
The Merger Agreement will be filed by APO as an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as required. The Merger Agreement contains certain conditions precedent to consummation of the merger, including but not limited to, obtaining consents, providing certified lists of shareholders and delivery of certain due diligence and other corporate documents. The Merger Agreement provides that the Issuable Shares will not be registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any state, and absent an exemption from registration contained in such laws, cannot be transferred, hypothecated, sold or otherwise disposed of until; (i) a registration statement with respect to such securities is declared effective under the Securities Act, or (ii) APO receives an opinion of counsel for APO that an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act is available.
