VANCOUVER, BC, September 16, 2019 – LOOP Insights Inc. (TSX.V: MTRX) (the “Company” or “Loop”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the IP (the “Agreement”) of Uklipz Digital Media Inc. (“Uklipz”), a company whose mission is to disrupt the consumer review industry by simplifying the process of sourcing, creating, curating and licensing authentic customer reviews, which is beneficial for both brands and consumers. Uklipz will be used by Loop to enhance the Company’s solution stack in multiple ongoing conversations with Loop’s current and potential customers.
Rob Anson, Loop’s President & CEO, comments: “The Uklipz acquisition was an important strategic move for the Company as it provides another immediate complimentary plug-in to expand the current Loop solution offering. We have already begun exploring opportunities for white labelling as well as licensing Uklipz to other companies, and the response has been very strong. We believe Uklipz will be a very significant stream of revenue and a very valuable asset for Loop’s shareholders.”
Reviews have become the cornerstone of all e-commerce platforms: consumers rely on reviews when making their purchase decisions while also wanting a say in how some of those products are shaped; and brands are looking to engage with consumers one-on-one to get a real-time feedback. Uklipz helps bridge this gap. The platform becomes a key tool for any web and mobile commerce platforms in their goal to engage more customers and brands.
Terms of the Deal
Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($350,000.00) payable on the Closing Date by way of the issuance of Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand (350,000) common shares in the capital stock of the Purchaser at $1.00 per common share inclusive of any and all sales taxes which may be applicable to the purchase.
Uklipz vision is to build a global brand as the premier, trusted source of authentic, user-generated reviews using technology that allows anyone with a smart phone to create, post and monetize video reviews. Uklipz revolutionizes digital brand and marketing assets by offering a direct and highly personalized feedback loop. With Uklipz, customers are literally at your fingertips. Brands gain an ability to engage directly with consumers in the heat of the moment, both in store and online.
