Turnium Provides Corporate Update

Proposed Acquisition of Claratti and CEO Transition

February 28, 2024 – Vancouver, Canada – Turnium Technology Group Inc. (TSXV: TTGI) (FSE: E48) (“Turnium” or “the Company”), is pleased to provide a corporate update regarding its acquisition strategy.

Acquisition of Claratti Limited

The Company is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) to acquire Claratti Limited (“Claratti”), a provider of managed IT Solutions for enterprises covering areas such as internet and telecommunications services, remote work and connectivity, cybersecurity and high-quality hardware and software. Claratti is headquartered in Perth, Australia and serves hundreds of clients across Australia.

Pursuant to the LOI, the Company will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding securities of Claratti (the “Acquisition”) in exchange for:

  1. a closing purchase price of C$6.0 million, payable through the issuance of common shares in the capital of the Company (“Common Shares”) at a deemed price of C$0.15 per Common Share, being a total of 40,000,000 Common Shares, which closing purchase price is based off of Claratti’s expected revenue generation and EBITDA for the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2024; and
  2. potential earn-out payments of up to C$4 million (also payable through the issuance of up to 26,666,666 Common Shares at a deemed issue price of C$0.15 per Common Share) if certain EBITDA levels are achieved in fiscal 2025 and in fiscal 2026.

The Common Shares issuable pursuant to the Acquisition will be subject to contractual escrow provisions, providing for release from escrow over an 18-month period.

The Acquisition is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Claratti would mark the first acquisition completed by Turnium since its RTO in June 2022. “We believe we can leverage Claratti’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform to deliver an integrated tech stack including SD-WAN, and the speed improvements from V7, to an increased global customer base. We continue to evaluate other acquisitions as we look to scale our revenue over the next few years,” stated Turnium Chairman Ralph Garcea.

CEO Transition

The Company also announces that Mr. Derek Spratt will be retiring as CEO, effective February 29, 2024, but will continue as a Director. We would like to thank Mr. Spratt for his efforts over the last couple of years as we dealt with many major corporate events, including the Company’s reverse takeover to list on the TSX Venture Exchange, the retirement of our debt facility and other cost-cutting initiatives. As part of the transition process, the Company has implemented an Office of the CEO consisting of Founder/Director Johan Arnet and Director Jim Lovie. All decisions going forward, until a permanent replacement for the role of CEO has been appointed, will be a collaborative effort between the Chairman, Mr. Arnet and Mr. Lovie, with input from the rest of the Board. The Board of Directors believes that having multiple individuals share the responsibilities of the CEO role can be beneficial, with each member of the Office of the CEO having their own set of responsibilities and areas of focus, allowing the Company to leverage the unique skills and experiences of each Director. The Company anticipates that this will provide a broader perspective and enable more effective decision-making during the transition. We look forward to updating investors with regards to a permanent CEO in due course.
