Consumer Direct Holdings, Inc. Announces Filing of Registration Statement on Form S-4 in Connection with Its Proposed Business Combination with DTRT Health Acquisition Corp.
MISSOULA, MONTANA, October 20, 2022– Consumer Direct Holdings, Inc. (“CDH” or the “Company”), a leading provider of self-directed in-home personal care, and DTRT Health Acquisition Corp. (“DTRT”) (Nasdaq: DTRT, DTRTU, DTRTW) a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company, announced today that a registration statement on Form S-4 (the “Registration Statement”) has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) by Grizzly New Pubco, Inc. (“New Pubco”), a wholly owned subsidiary of DTRT, which contains a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus, in connection with CDH’s previously announced proposed business combination with DTRT. The Registration Statement provides important information about DTRT, CDH and the proposed business combination, but the Registration Statement has not yet become effective and the information contained therein is subject to change.
On September 28, 2022, CDH entered into a merger agreement with DTRT. The business combination is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023, subject to approval by DTRT’s stockholders, the Registration Statement being declared effective by the SEC, and other customary closing conditions. Following the business combination with DTRT, New Pubco is expected to be renamed to Consumer Direct Care Network, Inc. and its common stock and public warrants will trade on Nasdaq under the symbol “CDCN” and “CDCNW”, respectively. The transaction values CDH at a pro forma enterprise value of approximately $691 million.
CDH is a leading national provider of self-directed in-home personal solutions, primarily focused on non-medical personal care for long-term aging and disability clients. CDH provides services under agreements with state Medicaid agencies, federal Veterans Administration providers, local government agencies, managed care organizations, commercial insurers and private individuals. CDH believes that care provided in the home generally costs less than facility-based care and is preferred by clients and their families. CDH believes that self-directed care also provides significant value to state Medicaid agencies and managed care organizations, including lower cost of services and higher satisfaction rates versus care in a facility or through a traditional home care agency. CDH’s expertise and experience provides competitive advantages when responding to requests for proposals and in creating unique program attributes required by some payors.
