The transaction will be structured with 40% of the option price paid in cash and the balance paid by the issuing of Litha Healthcare Group Limited shares.

The shares will be issued at the lower of the volume weighted average price at R2.20 per share.

Blackstar and Visio Capital, constituting 72% of Litha Healthcare Group's shareholders (excluding those shares held by the vendors), have irrevocably undertaken at a general meeting to vote in favour of all resolutions required to approve and implement the revised option.

Litha Healthcare Group Limited was recently awarded eighth place in the Sunday Times/Business Times Top 50 companies under one year category.

"We are tremendously proud of this achievement," said Kahanovitz.

"The last year has seen the group align its offerings into three main business streams, namely pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology, and we have started streamlining our operations and reducing overhead costs to create a leaner, diversified healthcare group," he said.
