NexJ Systems Completes Spin-Off of NexJ Health

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - NexJ Systems Inc. (TSX: NXJ), a provider of enterprise customer management solutions to the financial services industry, and NexJ Health Holdings Inc. today announced the successful completion of the previously announced Plan of Arrangement of NexJ Systems pursuant to which NexJ Systems spun out the Healthcare business unit to NexJ Health Holdings.

NexJ Systems shareholders now own one new Common Share of NexJ Systems and one Common Share of NexJ Health Holdings for each Common Share of NexJ Systems held immediately prior to the Arrangement becoming effective.

With the completion of the Arrangement, the Common Shares of NexJ Systems will continue to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "NXJ".  As a result of the Arrangement, NexJ Health Holdings has become a reporting issuer in all of the provinces and territories of Canada.  The Common Shares of NexJ Health Holdings are not listed on any stock exchange and it is not anticipated at this time that the Common Shares of NexJ Health Holdings will be listed on any stock exchange following the date hereof.

"The spin-off of the healthcare business from our finance business provides a clear path for both operations to pursue their strategic objectives independently," says William M. Tatham, Chief Executive Officer of NexJ Systems and Executive Chairman of NexJ Health Holdings. "We would like to thank all stakeholders including current and prospective customers, shareholders and employees for their support of this strategic initiative." 

NexJ Systems has completed a number of initiatives to drive profitable growth including:

  • Introducing new products, Customer Process Management and Customer Data Management
  • Expanding into new markets to include Corporate and Commercial Banking as well as Capital Markets
  • Entering new geographies including Europe and Asia Pacific
  • Engaging in strategic partnerships to further scale our delivery capabilities

"NexJ Systems customers are leading global financial services firms. Having executed several strategic initiatives that are already paying dividends we will continue to focus on profitable growth," says Rick Broley, Chief Operating Officer of NexJ Systems.

NexJ Health, which is now wholly-owned by NexJ Health Holdings, recently entered the commercialization phase with NexJ Connected Wellness, a solution based on research and proven at trial. The projects NexJ Health is working on further demonstrate the value of the platform while the opportunities currently being presented have the potential to dramatically accelerate the growth of the business.

"Separating into a distinct company is a strategic move that creates exciting opportunities for NexJ Health," says Gary Baksi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of NexJ Health. "The projects before us today would not only begin the transformation of our business but the healthcare system at home and abroad."

NexJ Health Holdings expects to raise capital to fund further development of the platform and to deliver its next generation product to market.
