Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth therein, upon the consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby (the “Closing”), Merger Sub will merge with and into Danam, with Danam surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (with the transactions contemplated by the Closing referred to as the “Transaction”).

A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Form 8-K contains certain statements that are not historical facts and are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the Transaction between Artemis and Danam Health, including without limitation statements regarding the anticipated benefits of the Transaction, the anticipated timing of the Transaction, the implied enterprise value, future financial condition and performance of Danam Health and the combined company after the closing and expected financial impacts of the Transaction, the satisfaction of closing conditions to the Transaction, the level of redemptions of Artemis’ public stockholders and the product candidates, products, markets, and expected future performance and market opportunities of Danam and Danam Health. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “think,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “potential,” “plan,” “seeks,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties.

 

 

 

These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this communication, including but not limited to: (i) the risk that the Transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of Artemis’ securities; (ii) the risk that the Transaction may not be completed by Artemis’ business combination deadline; (iii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the Transaction, including the approval of the Merger Agreement by the stockholders of Artemis, the satisfaction of the minimum cash at closing requirements and the receipt of certain governmental, regulatory and third party approvals; (iv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement; (v) the failure to achieve the minimum amount of cash available following any redemptions by Artemis’ stockholders; (vi) redemptions exceeding anticipated levels or the failure to meet Nasdaq initial listing standards in connection with the consummation of the Transaction; (vii) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the Transaction on Danam Health’s business relationships, operating results, and business generally; (viii) risks that the Transaction disrupts current plans and operations of Danam Health; (ix) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Danam Health or against Artemis related to the Merger Agreement or the Transaction ; (x) changes in the markets in which Danam Health competes, including with respect to its competitive landscape, technology evolution, or regulatory changes; (xi) changes in domestic and global general economic conditions; (xii) the risk that Danam Health may not be able to execute its growth strategies; (xiii) risk that Danam Health may not be able to develop and maintain effective internal controls; (xiv) costs related to the Transaction and the failure to realize anticipated benefits of the Transaction or to realize estimated pro forma results and underlying assumptions, including with respect to estimated stockholder redemptions; (xv) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Transaction and to achieve its commercialization and development plans, and identify and realize additional opportunities, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of Danam Health to grow and manage growth economically and hire and retain key employees; (xvi) the risk that Danam Health may fail to keep pace with rapid technological developments to provide new and innovative products and services or make substantial investments in unsuccessful new products and services; (xvii) risks related to the ability to develop, license or acquire new therapeutics; (xviii) the risk that Danam Health will need to raise additional capital to execute its business plan, which may not be available on acceptable terms or at all; (xix) the risk that Danam Health, post-combination, experiences difficulties in managing its growth and expanding operations; (xx) the risk of product liability or regulatory lawsuits or proceedings relating to Danam Health’s business; (xxi) uncertainties inherent in the execution, cost, and completion of preclinical studies and clinical trials; risks related to regulatory review, and approval and commercial development; (xxii) risks associated with intellectual property protection; (xxiii) the risk that Danam Health is unable to secure or protect its intellectual property; and (xxiv) Danam Health’s limited operating history; (xxv) uncertainties inherent in the execution, cost, and completion of preclinical studies and clinical trials; (xxvi) risks related to regulatory review and approval and commercial development; and (xxvii) those factors discussed in Artemis’ filings with the SEC and that are contained in the proxy statement/prospectus relating to the Transaction.

 

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties that will be described in the “Risk Factors” section of the Registration Statement’s proxy statement/prospectus and the amendments thereto, the definitive proxy statement/prospectus, and other documents to be filed by Artemis from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and while Danam and Artemis may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, they assume no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. None of Danam, Danam Health or Artemis gives any assurance that Danam Health or Artemis, or the combined company, will achieve its expectations. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Danam Health’s, Danam’s or Artemis’ assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Form 8-K. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
