Premier Health Group Inc. (PHGI:CSE; PHGRF:OTCQB; 6PH:FSE) closed on its acquisition of two pharmacies in Vancouver, Canada, it announced in a news release.
The details of the transaction are that Premier Health would purchase all of the pharmacies' outstanding shares from the vendors. In so doing, it would assume the pharmacies' net liabilities, an estimated $2.5 million, and would pay the vendors up to $4,057,733 in cash and shares.
Premier Health's CEO, Dr. Essam Hamza, outlined the benefits of the acquisitions. Premier's physicians and patients now have easier access to pharmacy services.
