2022-10-11 10:28 ET - News Release

Mr. Dan Matlow reports


Vitalhub Corp. has acquired QWAD Community Technologies Pty. Ltd., doing business as Community Data Solutions (CDS).

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 $8,197,155 (Australian), which was after customary closing and working capital adjustments.

For the 12-month period ending Sept. 30, 2022, CDS has estimated revenue of approximately $4-million (Australian), of which, $2.8-million (Australian) was identified to be recurring in nature with adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of approximately $1.3-million (Australian). 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 chief executive officer, 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 organizations 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 organizations," said Tom Twelftree, CEO of CDS.
