PRESS RELEASE

Think Research Announces Increased Credit Facility

TORONTO, June 28, 2021 /CNW/ – Think Research Corporation (TSXV: THNK) (“THINK” or the “Company”), a company focused on transforming healthcare through digital health software solutions, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an amended credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with National Bank of Canada (“NBC” or the “Lender”) that provides for a $15 million revolving credit facility and a $10 million revolving acquisition facility for an aggregate total availability of up to $25 million.

The Company will use the proceeds from the Credit Agreement for general corporate purposes and acquisitions.

THINK Research CEO, Sachin Aggarwal, said, “We are grateful for the ongoing support we have received from NBC for the past four years. We believe this support reflects NBC’s ongoing confidence in THINK’s growth and our ability to execute on future acquisitions that are highly synergistic and accretive.”

NBC’s Senior Director of Technology and Innovation Banking, David Looi, said “NBC is committed to supporting technology companies from coast-to-coast through their entire life cycle and is pleased to provide growth capital to help companies grow to the next level. We’re excited to continue supporting THINK on its quest to be a global industry leader in digital health solutions.”

The new Credit Agreement will provide a line of credit with a sliding-scale based interest rate relative to the Company’s leverage ratio. The maturity date for the Credit Agreement is June 25, 2024. By having a committed three-year Credit Agreement, bank debt outstanding shifts from current liabilities to long term liabilities, the impact of which would be $9 million as at March 31, 2021. This also strengthens the Company’s working capital position.

Borrowings under the facility are secured by a first charge over substantially all of the Company’s assets. The new Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, positive and negative covenants, and events of default.
