MD On Demand&#44; LLC&#58; Medical Care from the Privacy of Your Home

<img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-8222″ src=”” alt=”” width=”631″ height=”474″ />

<strong>DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 9, 2021 / </strong>To provide a solution to the lack of access to affordable healthcare, Dr. Edward Johnson is launching MD on Demand, LLC on April 1, 2021. The platform is so innovative that Buzzfeed has named it “the digital hospital to watch in 2021.”

“In the U.S., there are about 1.5 billion ambulatory or walk-in doctor-patient visits each year,” Dr. Johnson states. “We estimate that MD on Demand can treat a little over half of those on our platform. Amazing, isn’t it? That’s roughly 800 million yearly doctor-patient visits that we will be helping with. We are so needed that the valuation for MD On Demand is $400,000,000.”

Dr. Johnson serves as the Chairman and CEO of Skyplay, the parent company for MD On Demand. Since co-founding the company in 2019, Dr. Johnson has led its strategic direction and has grown MD On Demand to become one of the most talked-about disruptors in the telehealth industry. He has a lengthy track record of successfully leading technology companies in the healthcare field. A former CEO of a CLEC in the South, Dr. Johnson combined his passion for technology with his love of medicine to create MD On Demand.

“At MD On Demand, we believe that everyone should have instant and affordable access to a board-certified doctor, whenever and wherever you need one,” says Dr. Johnson. “It was very concerning to me that so many people cannot access competent care, so I am happy that I can use MD On Demand to solve this serious issue. This lack of affordable healthcare is an ever-growing problem and makes our mission even more important.”

MD On Demand can connect anyone, whether or not they have insurance, to high-quality doctors and nurses while saving the patient valuable time and money. “We can provide medical services through any device as well as through our 24/7 call center,” Dr. Johnson says.

MD On Demand puts its patients’ needs first. It is free to sign up for services, and the price of the visit to the physician is always shown upfront so that there are no billing surprises. The company works with many major insurance plans and employers. Their services are extensive, including urgent care, behavioral health, preventative health, and chronic care.

“Our team is available 24/7,” Dr. Johnson says. “We can even help you order prescriptions. Feeling better should not involve so much stress, so we’ve done everything we can to take the hassle and guesswork out of getting well.”

MD On Demand can help with a wide variety of ailments, including cold and flu, asthma, skin conditions, women’s health, men’s health, allergies, and headaches, among others. “There are a few we cannot help with,” Dr. Johnson says, “including lacerations, broken bones, severe bones, chest pain, and traumatic injuries to the brain or spine. You can see our website for a more comprehensive list. Despite those restrictions, there is a lot we can do for most people.”

The doctors are board-certified and can treat patients anywhere, including at home, at work, or even on the go. All physicians are U.S.-based and include licensed doctors, psychologists, dentists, psychiatrists, therapists, and aesthetic medical experts that are available to treat patients according to their schedules.

“MD On Demand is revolutionizing how healthcare is done,” Dr. Johnson believes. “We have you covered from A to Z. With our team of over 10,000 highly qualified medical professionals in 50 states, we are here to provide professional and discreet services to support you. I think you’re going to be impressed by what we can do for you the next time you or a loved one needs medical assistance.”

Westbridge Announces Business Combination with Georgetown Solar

<img src=”” alt=”Westbridge Energy Corporation” />

<b>VANCOUVER, BC / March 9, 2021 / Westbridge Energy Corporation</b> (TSXV:WEB.H) (“<b>Westbridge</b>” or the “<b>Company</b>”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive agreement dated March 4, 2021 (the “<b>Business Combination Agreement</b>”) setting out the terms of a proposed business combination (the “<b>Transaction</b>”) with Georgetown Solar Inc. (“<b>Georgetown</b>”), an arm’s length company incorporated under the <i>Business Corporations Act</i> (Alberta). It is intended that the Transaction will result in the reactivation of the Company pursuant to the regulations of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “<b>TSXV</b>”), and the listing of the common shares of Westbridge on Tier 1 or 2 of the TSXV.

Georgetown is a privately?held company focused on the development of large scale utility solar PV projects. Georgetown is currently in the process of assessment for development of the solar property known as the Georgetown project, which is comprised of approximately 710 acres located in Vulcan County, Alberta (the “<b>Georgetown Project</b>”). To date, Georgetown has conducted fieldwork, wetland delineation and classification and engineering assessments with respect to the Georgetown Project, with a view to the development of the project to “ready to build” status and divestiture. Upon completion of the Transaction, it is the intention of the parties that Westbridge will focus primarily upon the further assessment and development of the Georgetown Project, while seeking additional solar project development opportunities to enhance the overall value of the Company.

“On behalf of the board, we are extremely excited to have found such an impressive partner in Georgetown, led by Stefano Romanin and his team of global developers of utility-scale solar photovoltaic projects.” Said Scott M. Kelly, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company. “Westbridge has always been driven to define opportunity and deliver value in the evolving energy sector. Today, we take an important step towards a future of growth, innovation, and market leadership by bringing our loyal shareholders into ESG and renewable energy”.

Stefano Romanin, Chief Executive Officer of Georgetown said, “We are excited to have the opportunity to join Westbridge and continue to grow our solar development business with a new strategic partner. This transaction will strengthen our market position and open up new opportunities for expansion in the Canadian and USA markets”.

<strong>Transaction Structure</strong>

The Transaction will be structured as a three-cornered amalgamation pursuant to which Georgetown will amalgamate with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Westbridge and Westbridge will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Georgetown from the shareholders of Georgetown in exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of 20,000,000 common shares of Westbridge (each, a “<b>Westbridge Share</b>”) to such shareholders (being calculated based on a ratio of 2,000 Westbridge Shares for each one share of Georgetown outstanding).

The Transaction remains subject to the receipt of all applicable regulatory and third party approvals, including the approval of the TSXV, and the satisfaction of other closing conditions set forth in the Business Combination Agreement. An aggregate of 1,200,000 Westbridge Shares are issuable to Invictus Investments Ltd. (the “<b>Finder</b>”) in connection with the Transaction.

The Transaction will constitute a change of business for the Company, as Westbridge was previously a resource issuer and upon completion of the Transaction, proposes to focus on solar project development opportunities. The Transaction is not expected to be subject to the approval of shareholders of Westbridge, on the basis that (i) shareholder approval is not required for a three-cornered amalgamation under applicable corporate law; and (ii) the Transaction is not a “related party transaction” and no other circumstances exist which may compromise the independence of the Company or other interested parties with respect to the Transaction; (iii) the Company is listed on the NEX board of the TSXV and is without active operations; and (iv) the Company is not and will not be subject to a cease trade order and will not otherwise be suspended from trading on completion of the Transaction. The Company proposes to apply for a waiver from the sponsorship requirements of the TSXV in connection with the Transaction.

<strong>Concurrent Financings</strong>

As a condition of the closing of the Transaction, Westbridge shall complete a best efforts private placement (the “<b>Private Placement</b>”) of subscription receipts (“<b>Subscription Receipts</b>”) at a price of $0.125 per Subscription Receipt (or such other price as may be agreed by the parties) to raise minimum aggregate gross proceeds of $2,500,000. Each Subscription Receipt will automatically convert immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction, for no additional consideration, into one unit (a “<b>Westbridge Unit</b>”) comprised of one Westbridge Share and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each whole such share purchase warrant, a “<b>Westbridge Warrant</b>”). Each Westbridge Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional Westbridge Share at an exercise price of $0.20 for a period of two years from the date of issuance of the Westbridge Warrants, provided that in the event that, at any time following the date which is four months and a day following the closing of the Private Placement, the closing price of the Westbridge Shares is equal to or exceeds $0.35 per share for any 10 trading days within any 30-trading day period (which, for greater certainty, includes any period prior to the closing of the Transaction), Westbridge may accelerate the expiry date of the outstanding Westbridge Warrants by providing 10 days’ notice pursuant to the dissemination of a press release announcing such accelerated expiry date.

The gross proceeds of the Private Placement will be deposited in escrow at closing of the Private Placement with a mutually acceptable escrow agent and released to Westbridge immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction, provided that if the closing is not completed on or prior to June 30, 2021 (or such other date as may be agreed upon by the parties), the Subscription Receipts will be cancelled and the escrowed proceeds shall be returned to the purchasers thereof. In connection with the Private Placement, Westbridge may pay finder’s fees and/or issue broker warrants to qualified registrants, in amounts and upon terms yet to be determined.

In addition, as a condition to the closing of the Transaction, Georgetown will issue convertible debentures in the aggregate principal amount of $350,000 which shall, as of closing of the Transaction, be automatically converted into Westbridge Units at a deemed price of $0.125 per Westbridge Unit (the “<b>Debenture Financing</b>”).

Following the completion of the Transaction, the net proceeds from the Private Placement are anticipated to be principally used to further assess and develop the Georgetown Project, and for general working capital purposes. While Westbridge intends to spend the funds available to it as stated above, there may be circumstances where for sound business reasons a reallocation of funds may be necessary.


It is currently anticipated that immediately following the completion of the Transaction (assuming $2,500,000 is raised pursuant to the Private Placement), there will be approximately 63,044,154 Westbridge Shares outstanding, of which the current shareholders of the Company will hold 18,932,154 Westbridge Shares (or approximately 30.0%), shareholders of Georgetown will hold 20,000,000 Westbridge Shares (or approximately 31.7%), purchasers in the Private Placement will hold 20,000,000 Westbridge Shares (or approximately 31.7%), purchasers of Convertible Debentures will hold 2,912,000 Westbridge Shares (or approximately 4.6%) and the Finder will hold 1,200,000 Westbridge Shares (or approximately 1.9%). In addition, it is currently anticipated that there will be approximately 15,492,431 convertible securities of Westbridge outstanding upon closing of the Transaction (inclusive of 11,456,000 Westbridge Warrants, assuming the Private Placement is completed to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $2,500,000, the conversion of the Convertible Debentures into Westbridge Units, and that no broker warrants are issued in connection with the Private Placement), each entitling the holder to acquire one additional Westbridge Share in accordance with the respective terms thereof.

The securities of Westbridge issuable to the holders of Convertible Debentures and shareholders of Georgetown shall be subject to the following voluntary hold periods:
<ol start=”1″>
<li>the securities comprising the WEB Units issuable upon conversion of the Convertible Debentures shall be subject to a hold period expiring concurrently with the expiry of the statutory hold period applicable to the Subscription Receipts pursuant to National Instrument 45-106; and</li>
<li>the Westbridge Shares issued to shareholders of Georgetown will be subject to a hold period expiring on the date that is six months following the closing of the Transaction with respect to 50% of such Westbridge Shares, and 12 months following the closing of the Transaction with respect to the remaining 50% of such Westbridge Shares.</li>
No new control person of the Company will be created as a result of the Transaction.
