VitalHub Corp. Announces Acquisition of Community Data Solutions

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VITALHUB CORP. (TSX: VHI) (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) is pleased to announce today that it has acquired (the “Acquisition”) QWAD Community Technologies Pty Ltd, doing business as “Community Data Solutions” (“CDS”), a company incorporated and conducting business in Australia.

VitalHub has acquired CDS, in an all-cash acquisition by its wholly-owned subsidiary, VitalHub Australia Pty Ltd, for a purchase price at closing of AUD $8,197,155 which was after customary closing and working capital adjustments.

For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2022, CDS has estimated revenue of approximately AUD $4,000,000 of which AUD $2,800,000 was identified to be recurring in nature with Adjusted EBITDA of approximately AUD $1,300,000. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, is defined as earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortization, share based compensation, business acquisition, restructuring and integration costs.

Dan Matlow, VitalHub CEO, commented on the Acquisition stating, “Although we already have some great customers in Australia, the acquisition of CDS provides us with a strong foundation to continue to accelerate our growth in a new market. We believe that Australia represents a great opportunity for expansion for all our product lines and we now have a fully operational organization as a basis to build upon.”

“As Community Data Solutions grew in the last three to four years, we had multiple enquiries from organisations seeking to purchase CDS. We are very pleased to have found a partner in VitalHub that understands our unique culture and offering in the Australian market and seeks to expand upon this with their other internationally deployed software solutions. We believe this will greatly complement the diversity of products available in the Community Services and Health sectors in Australia and New Zealand which ultimately benefits the day-to-day end users, administrators, and both public and private funding sources,” said Greg Were, co-founder of CDS.

“We look forward to our new journey with VitalHub. We believe the innovation and broader product suite of software solutions that VitalHub will bring to this market will provide healthy competition and excellent value for money for our customers and for the broader Community Services and Health sector organisations,” said Tom Twelftree, CEO of CDS.
