Proactive Group Holdings Inc. (“Proactive”), the AI-powered digital stakeholder engagement company, announces it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Evergreen Acquisitions Corp. (“Evergreen”). The proposed transaction is expected to constitute a reverse-takeover transaction and will be structured following the review and consideration by the parties of applicable tax, securities, corporate law, and other relevant considerations and will be subject to standard closing conditions, including receipt of any required regulatory or shareholder approvals.

The proposed transaction will be conditional on Proactive and Evergreen receiving the approval to list the resulting company’s common shares on a senior stock exchange in Canada.

The proposed transaction is designed to provide Proactive with better access to capital to accelerate its investment in AI products and consider any potential acquisition opportunities. Proactive has so far utilized its own financial resources and access to corporate debt to make multiple acquisitions. Most recently, the company has completed two acquisitions of corporate website solutions businesses, in Canada and Australia.

Proactive chief executive Ian Mclelland said: “The proposed transaction with Evergreen comes at an important strategic point for the business as we look to grow with the aim of creating a leading AI-powered issuer services company. The proposed transaction would provide us with potential access to growth capital to accelerate multiple opportunities, and to introduce AI products to both new customers and our current 2,000 clients alike.”
