  • HealthCheck is cash flow-positive, with US$1.23m1 in revenue for trailing 12 months

  • App reflects a valuable addition to Contakt World's (CSE: HELP) SaaS portfolio, a potential vehicle for integrating vaccine passports, and a system to fight future health threats beyond Covid-19

  • HealthCheck app is another potential tool to collect de-identified data surrounding Covid-19 for Health Equity Tracker

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 12, 2021) - Contakt World Technologies Corp. (CSE: HELP) (OTC: TLOOF) (FSE: B2I0) (the "Company" or "Contakt World"), a SaaS company committed to improving health equity and disease management while solving sector specific business challenges, today announced it has acquired (the "Acquisition") Stratum Health Solutions, LLC ("Stratum"), which operates HealthCheck by Stratum™ ("HealthCheck"), an encrypted wellness tracking and analytics tool with 1,000+ current customers. Contakt World acquired Stratum from RTAE Holdings LLC ("RTAE").

HealthCheck is a secure, cloud-based platform that allows organizations of all sizes to track and evaluate employee and student health and Covid-19 related symptoms in real-time through an app. Following strict data privacy laws, HealthCheck's intuitive digital portal enables users to participate in a health self-assessment based on CDC guidelines, where they answer a series of health-based questions at any point in the day, better preparing for current Covid-19 and future health outbreaks while protecting the overall health of the organization against Covid-19 and other threats.

HealthCheck is used by a variety of customers including schools, hospitals, fire stations, financial institutions, and small businesses. HealthCheck has 1,000+ customers, including over 50,000 users within Atlanta Public Schools across 91 learning sites. Contakt World hopes to rapidly scale the consumption of HealthCheck services through its partner network, including the National Association of County and City Health Officials and Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine.

HealthCheck generated US$1.23M in revenue over the last 12 months with US$0.44M in net income during the same period2. A 20% increase in revenue was observed between the last 6 months and the previous 6-month period.

"With HealthCheck's daily health check-ins, when people show symptoms for Covid-19, the participating organization immediately receives alerts and access to their user's unique health dashboard," said Justin Beck, Chief Visionary Officer of Contakt World. "The technology is a valuable addition to our product and service portfolio, anchored by Smart Health RM. We believe HealthCheck will serve as an excellent sales channel for Contakt World's other solutions, given HealthCheck's existing 1,000+ customers, and the app provides a potential avenue for Contakt World to incorporate vaccine passports in our product suite."

"With schools opening again and the delta variant making clear that we may face Covid-19 and viruses like the flu for the foreseeable future, it's clear that organizations of all sizes will need ways to conduct symptoms checks, testing, waivers and more to reduce risks. We view HealthCheck as a way to solve the most pressing public health challenge of today in Covid-19, and to prepare for unpredictable threats tomorrow might bring," concluded Beck.

Ryan Trimberger, Stratum Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer added, "Contakt World's global technology platform attracted us as an ideal venue to offer HealthCheck. We were led to create HealthCheck in response to the global Covid-19 pandemic and the urgent need for organizations to make informed safety and operational decisions to keep people healthy, leveraging our expertise in cloud-based technology. Through this acquisition, we're now shareholders in Contakt World, and believe their team is well positioned to leverage and scale HealthCheck to global prominence through their relationships in public health and healthcare."

Transaction Terms

In connection with the Acquisition, Contakt World issued to RTAE (i) 3,523,933 Class A Subordinate Voting Shares (each, a "Contakt Share"), for deemed consideration of $1.325M USD at a deemed issue price of C$0.47 CAD per Contakt Share and (ii) a convertible note (the "Note") for $4.155M USD. The Note bears interest at 3.5% and is convertible at the Company's or RTAE's option after 6-months into Contakt Shares at a conversion price equal to a 20% discount to the 20-day volume-weighted average closing price of the Contakt Shares, subject to a minimum conversion price of C$0.65 CAD. Assuming conversion, RTAE can only liquidate up to 1/6 the value of the Note in each 30-day period. The Note is secured against the membership interests of Stratum and the source code for HealthCheck now held by Contakt World. Pursuant to the Acquisition, RTAE is also eligible to receive earn-out payments at 12 months and 24 months, respectively, according to certain revenue milestones set forth in the agreement respecting the Acquisition.

Company is rapidly developing and patenting its generative AI technology forcreating 3D models in e-commerce (formally "Nextech AR Solutions Corp'' or the "Company") (OTCQX:NEXCF) (CSE:NTAR) (FSE:EP2), a Generative AI-Powered 3D model supplier for Amazon, P&G, Kohls and other major e-commerce retailers is pleased to announce the Company has successfully executed the first end-to-end demonstration in the real-world of its "FIXED POINT DIFFUSION FOR ROBUST 2D TO 3D CONVERSION" technology to be used for e-commerce. uses fixed-point diffusion for learning to construct 3D models from 2D reference photos as was described in a recently filed provisional patent

Diffusion models provide a solution for creating 3D models from 2D reference photos, either as a whole, or part-by-part by evolving differentiable, deformable templates to convert into 3D parts, conditioned on one or more reference photos of the part. Fixed-point diffusion builds on that idea and ensures the resulting final mesh has clean, predictable quad topology suitable for further editing and rendering. As previously announced, over the last several years has been building tens of thousands of high-quality, fully textured, 4K photo-realistic 3D assets, with millions of individual parts. These 3D parts get harvested into's "3D parts library", synthetically rendering them from random views, and using them to train new diffusion models that are able to autonomously reconstruct 3D mesh parts from reference photos.

In March of this year, the Company announced it had filed a pivotal patent protecting this technology, titled "Fixed-point diffusion for robust 2D to 3D conversion and other applications." This patent builds on the Company's previous patents filed. Earlier in 2023, a patent was filed titled "Generative AI for 3D Model Creation from 2D Photos using Stable Diffusion with Deformable Template Conditioning", and late last year the Company filed a patent for creating complex 3D models by parts. The game-changing AI technology underpinning these patents places the Company in a leadership position in the 3D modeling for e-commerce space and positions the Company to generate significant revenue acceleration and cash flow in 2023 and beyond. is rapidly becoming the dominant 3D model supplier in the 2D photo -3D models transformation happening in the $5.5 trillion dollar global e-commerce industry estimated to be worth $100 billion.

Nima Sarshar, Chief Technology Officer of commented, "We are very proud to demonstrate the first end-to-end real world demonstration of our fixed point diffusion technology for e-commerce. With the development of our fixed-point diffusion models, we are able to offer a new reliable, and innovative way to generate 3D models at scale from 2D reference photos. Our recent patent applications and speedy developments based on them, showcase our laser-focused determination to drive innovation in the field of generative AI for 3D."
