Certive Solutions Inc. Announces Titan Asset Divestiture

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2017) - Certive Solutions Inc. (OTCQB:CTVEF)(CSE:CBP)(CSE:CBP.CN)(CNSX:CBP) - ("Certive" or the "Company"), announces that further to its news release dated May 2, 2017, the Company entered into a Settlement and Divestiture Agreement dated July 3, 2017 to divest the assets previously acquired of Titan Health Management Solutions, Inc. ("Titan"). The divestiture is effective as of June 1, 2017. The founding principals of Titan have agreed to reacquire the Titan assets from the Company pursuant to the Asset Purchase and Sale Agreement, which was executed on July 3, 2014 and which provides for the necessary process to accomplish the transaction.

The terms of the Settlement and Divestiture Agreement are as follows:

  1. Payment from an escrow account of $100,000 to Certive representing cash on May 31, 2017, that is owing to Certive up to and including that date, being the agreed cutoff date for Certive's ownership and operations of the assets.


  2. The return to treasury of 10,490,667 common shares of Certive, representing 13.4% of the Company's presently issued and outstanding shares.


The total sale price of the assets sold to Titan is deemed to be $3,247,400, approximately $536,400 greater than the original purchase price of $2,711,000, based upon the deemed price per share of $0.30 for the shares issued under the Settlement Agreement.

On December 1, 2016, the Company issued a press release updating corporate affairs and referred to the growth in Titan. During the month of February 2017, several significant and material events occurred which have caused management and the Board of Directors of Certive to reflect on the appropriateness of making additional investment in Titan, notwithstanding its growth and recently improved financial results. The factors considered include Titan's reliance on a few customers, lower margins on expected new business, duplication of services that can be provided by either Omega Technology Solutions, LLC (the "Omega division") or other service provider partners, and additional significant cash investment that will be needed to on-board expected new customers.

Recognizing Certive's need to expend capital on its most accretive offerings possible and thus attain positive cash flow in the near term, it was mutually determined by both the Company and the Titan principals that they would be better served by Titan reacquiring the assets originally acquired by Certive in July 2014.

It is Certive management's opinion that there has been no appreciable increase in the asset value of the Titan customer relationships since the date of the original acquisition.

Subsequent to closing the transactions contemplated in the Settlement and Divestiture Agreement, it is contemplated that the Company may enter into a sales and marketing agreement with Titan, thus continuing to offer the Titan brand of zero balance service offerings to Certive customers. This relationship is not expected to be exclusive; the Company will also offer these services using the resources of its Omega division and other outsourced third party providers. Management believes that the use of the Omega subsidiary and other revenue cycle partners can enhance the profitability of zero balance business in certain selected situations. This is particularly anticipated in audit and collection activities.
