TORONTO, Feb. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iLOOKABOUT Corp. (TSXV: ILA; OTCQB: ILATF) (“ILA” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide a business update post acquisition of Clarocity last summer.

In July 2019, ILA acquired Clarocity Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Clarocity Valuation Services, LLC and Valuation Vision Inc. (“Clarocity”). Clarocity provides real estate valuation solutions and platform technologies designed to address today's dynamic housing market. Its innovative platform is driving the next generation of valuation solutions such as MarketValue Pro (MVP) and BPOMerge, and setting new standards in real estate valuation quality and reliability. Every day government-sponsored entities, banking, and investor clients rely on Clarocity’s proprietary solutions to value assets, fund loans, and securitize portfolios. As a fully integrated technology and valuation services company, Clarocity provides a full spectrum of appraisal and alternative valuation solutions.

The financial resources of the Company, which have been extended to Clarocity, have enabled the re-establishment of customer and vendor confidence in Clarocity’s long term viability. ILA has also completed its reorganization of Clarocity, rightsizing the business and repositioning the management team allowing them to focus on the business and draw on their longstanding industry relationships. These initiatives have proven highly successful and have resulted in previous clients re-engaging with Clarocity as well as adding 6 new blue-chip clients in the non-traditional and digital lender space. In addition, ILA is proud to announce Clarocity has entered the commercial valuation sector leveraging the extensive experience of Mr. Gary Yeoman, Chairman and CEO of ILA, within this vertical. Given these advancements in the business, Clarocity is on track to double sales year-over-year.

ILA’s property tax assessment division, iLOOKABOUT, remains strong and is estimated to grow approximately 20% this year. The tax assessment platform is well established in Ontario and ILA is now adding on incremental municipalities to their Real Property Tax Analytics (“RPTA”) application. iLOOKABOUT has also been expanding licensing of its proprietary GeoViewPort (“GVP”) tax assessment platform and StreetScape imagery in the US, recently adding New Orleans and Utah County. Approximately 20 US counties are now using GVP on a daily basis to assist with their property assessment responsibilities. Future growth of iLOOKABOUT’s revenue is expected to be driven by the launch in Canada and the US of its GVP mobile application. 

Corporately in 2019, the Company received $1.2M with respect to its successful application for Ontario Interactive Digital Media Tax credits for prior periods, contributing to ILA’s sound working capital position. The Company also secured a credit facility with the Bank of Montreal’s Technology & Innovation Banking Group to provide funding for organic and acquisitive growth opportunities that ILA continues to explore as it executes on its growth strategy.
