The Company believes that the immediate benefits to Innovus Pharma of the Beyond Human transaction is: 1. Triple the Company's aggregate annual revenues to close to $4.0 million; 2. Move the Company faster to becoming cash flow positive; 3. The Beyond Human products acquired could generate alone for the Company over $3 million in gross revenues and over $600,000 in net profits once fully integrated into the Innovus platform over the next few years; 4. A total of 6 new Beyond Human products acquired that can be sold through the Company's numerous international distributors; and 5. Leverage Beyond Human's on-line platform and large database of thousands of customers that would assist the Company in expanding sales of its current products such as EjectDelay®, Sensum+® and Vesele® among others.
