Combination of Loop technologies with Maitri platform has potential to create new paradigm in $120 Billion PPE market.
VANCOUVER, BC, March 1, 2021 /CNW/ – Loop Insights Inc. (TSXV: MTRX) (OTCQB: RACMF) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated venue tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the signing of a letter of intent (LOI) for the grant of a non-exclusive license to Maitri Health Technologies Corp. (CSE: MTEC) for various aspects of Loop’s technology in return for CDN$2,000,000 in cash and common shares as well as a revenue-sharing arrangement.
Maitri Health Technologies is focused on modernizing healthcare systems for a post-pandemic world. Global events in 2020 identified the need for long-term security in both healthcare and the workplace. Maitri is a global platform for healthcare supply security providing a reliable source of certified PPE (personal protective equipment) and testing solutions through an onshore manufacturing model. This model has led to the creation of innovative and industry-leading products integrated with technology to help track, trace, and enable safer workplaces and communities. Maitri’s vision for the future is for safe workplaces and institutions to enable economies to operate uninterrupted.
The global market for PPE is expected to exceed USD$123 Billion by 2027 according to Grandview Research. The global workplace safety market is expected to grow to USD$19.9 Billion by 2025 according to Research and Markets.
The combination of Loop’s technologies with Maitri’s unique products has the potential to create a comprehensive offering for PPE and technology that will provide the foundation for safer, more protected workplaces and communities.
Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “COVID-19 created an immediate need for PPE that also immediately became a highly disorganized and fragmented market of middlemen and brokers with often questionable sources. Maitri’s ability to establish secure access and trusted distribution to key PPE products through a platform positions them to quickly become a strong force in the industry. This licensing arrangement will provide the ability to add venue, business and building protection to their offering, leading to brand new opportunities and revenue models.”
LICENSING ARRANGEMENT TO COMBINE PPE, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND PROPTECH IN FIRST-EVER AND FULLY SCALABLE OFFERING
Maitri’s PPE line of products combined with Loop Insights technology represents the convergence of a powerful PPE, AI, and Proptech offering that enables operators, businesses and building owners to reopen and protect all constituents with a documented process from verified PPE to venue management and artificial intelligence-driven marketing opportunities. This combined protocol enables physical buildings to fully reopen, generate revenue, and remain viable assets under end-to-end protection.
As a result, Loop Insights gains access to another major industry component that is essential to the safe re-opening of the global economy and society.
“Our relationship with Loop technology will create the opportunity to deliver a more complete safety protocol along with our existing products and offerings,” said Andrew Morton, CEO of Maitri. “We’re well-positioned to play a significant role supporting a path to global economic recovery.”
TERMS OF THE LOI
Loop will license the following technology:
- AI Data Insights Portal;
- SmarTap Check-in Technology; and
- Digital Wallet Pass Technology.
In exchange for the license, Loop will receive a total value of $2,000,000 in a combination of both:

- Common Shares $1,750,000; and
- Revenue Share (terms to be determined)
Both parties have agreed to a 30-day closing period for a definitive agreement, the terms of which are subject to the approval by the Board of Directors of both companies.
