Certive Solutions Inc. Provides Corporate Update

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/16 -- Certive Solutions Inc. (OTCQB:CTVEF)(CSE:CBP) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Certive Technologies Arizona Inc. - (collectively "Certive" or the "Company") wishes to provided a detailed corporate update on the status of both its core business and the previously disclosed acquisition.

For the quarter ended August 31, 2016, the Company recorded gross revenues of US$1,516,300, of which US$1,146,383 was recorded by our Titan Division, representing our Zero Balance service offering. The Titan Division had an exceptional quarter recording a gross profit of US$657,378 or 57.3% of gross divisional revenues and a net operating divisional profit of US$399,049 or 34.8% of gross divisional revenues. On a consolidated basis, Certive recorded an average 38% gross margin across all divisions compared to a 24% gross margin for the preceding quarter ended May 31, 2016. We recorded an operating loss of US$430,034 for the three months then ended or an average of US$143,344 per month, represented wholly by the operating costs of the parent company.

Resulting from a significant US$3,000,000 debt conversion secured from both our vendors and investors subsequent to the quarter end, our working capital deficiency was completely eliminated and therefore at that date we had a positive working capital position in excess of US$150,000.

The Company continues to expand its current core business development activities, while finalizing the timing of the acquisition as described in various press releases over the past several months.

With respect to our expanding business activities the following significant developments are of importance;


a.  Our Titan Division continues to increase sales volumes and divisional
    profitability month over month. Our Zero Balance audit and collections
    service customer base has expanded and we continue to develop profitable
    relationships with medium sized hospital customers, thus reducing our
    reliance on any one large hospital system. 
b.  Our Omega Division recorded revenues in the month of November in excess
    of US$200,000 of which US$177,000 was collected in less than 25 days.
    This is significant insofar as our accounts receivable aging is now less
    than 30 days enabling a better utilization of cash flow. Equally as
    important, we have commenced providing our Lost Charge Recovery services
    to a major hospital system in the northwestern United States. There are
    9 hospitals in this system which represents an estimated US$21 million
    in potential revenues to us over the following three years.
    Concurrently, we have commenced a sales plan with small critical access
    hospitals located throughout the United States and in particular those
    located near outdoor recreational facilities. We are in the final stages
    of securing contracts with 10 such locations that will add an additional
    estimated US$450,000 per month in gross revenue in addition to that
    which is currently being generated. The Omega Division operates
    profitably with revenues in excess of US$150,000 per month, and requires
    no additional staffing or occupancy costs to support revenues up to
    US$650,000 per month. The result is that any revenues in excess of
    US$150,000 accrete directly to EBITDA, divisionally.  
c.  Given the current status of our two divisions, we are of the opinion
    that Certive on a consolidated basis, and notwithstanding our intended
    acquisition referred to above, will be operating at above breakeven on a
    consolidated basis in the first calendar quarter of 2017. 
d.  We are also expanding our Zero Balance business into small markets where
    we have established connectivity by way of our Lost Charge Recovery
    Business.  

With respect to the status of our previously disclosed acquisition, we report as follows;


a.  The terms of the acquisition remain consistent with previously disclosed
    terms and are reiterated as US$12 million in cash on closing and US$8
    million in notes being taken by the vendor. 
b.  We have secured a conditional US$7 million commercial financing
    commitment, subject to final documents, from a local bank in Arizona.
    The terms generally are US$7 million, interest at 4.5%, for a term of
    three years. The funds will be used, in part, to complete on the
    acquisition purchase price.  
c.  We have secured commitments for a total of US$5 million in bridge
    financing that will also be utilized to complete the transaction.  
d.  In the course of securing the commercial bank facility an independent
    valuation commissioned by the lender of the consolidated enterprise
    confirmed a post acquisition enterprise value of US$47 million or
    US$0.69 per share.  

Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
