$ROUIF: NEWS.... Group Mobile Presentation (Webcast)




On March 22, 2018, Route1 closed the acquisition of Group Mobile Int’l, LLC (Group
Mobile) from XpresSpa Group, Inc. (XpresSpa Group).
– Route1 announced the signing of the definitive agreement to acquire Group
Mobile (the “Agreement”) on March 8, 2018.
• Group Mobile based in Chattanooga, TN and Chandler, AZ, supplies rugged mobile
technology solutions to leading automotive manufacturing companies and suppliers,
other leading manufacturing and distribution companies, as well as local and state
governments in the southeastern and southwestern United States

Group Mobile Background:
– Deployed over 1.5 million rugged mobile devices.
– Based on historical results, quarterly revenue of USD $3.4 million to USD $4.5
million, gross profit margin of 16% to 22% and positive EBITDA.
– Increased margins driven by services offerings.
– Rapidly growing recurring revenue Technology as a Service model.
– Hardware supplier relationships with the leaders in rugged and warehouse
focused technology equipment manufacturers – Getac and Zebra.
– Strong distributor relationships including Ingram Micro, ScanSource and Synnex.

Transaction Rationale. Route1 is acquiring Group Mobile to:
A. Expand Route1’s service and product offerings;
B. Strengthen outside and inside sales;
C. Diversify revenue, customers, and verticals;
D. Expand the use of Route1’s core technologies into the manufacturing,
distribution, local and state governments and respective suppliers; and
E. Leverage Group Mobile’s current and future placement of rugged mobile devices
to sell Route1’s core technologies as an integrated offering

Fixed Consideration. Under the terms of the Agreement, Route1 issued to XpresSpa
– 25 million common shares, and
– 30 million, three-year common share purchase warrants with an exercise price of
CAD 5 cents per common share.
• XpresSpa Group now owns approximately 7% of Route1’s undiluted common shares.
The issued Route1 common shares will not be tradable until a date no earlier than 12
months after the closing date:
– 50% or 12.5 million common shares tradeable after 12 months, plus
– 2,083,333 common shares tradeable each month until 18 months after the date
of closing, subject to a change of control provision.

Contingent Consideration. There may also be one or more payments made to
XpresSpa Group based on the actual gross profit of Group Mobile meeting a
minimum threshold in each 12-month period during the first three years post-closing
or for the three years in aggregate post-closing. Specifically:
– An annual earn-out if the gross profit of Group Mobile is in excess of USD
$3,750,000 per 12-month period, then XpresSpa Group will receive 27.5% of the
actual gross profit amount greater than USD $3,750,000. If the gross profit
target is missed in the first or second year, no subsequent annual earn-out
payment(s) will be made; and
– A cumulative earn-out that is equal to 27.5% of the Group Mobile gross profit for
the first 36 months post-closing that is in excess of $11,250,000 less any annual
earn-out amounts previously made. Payments pursuant to the annual or
cumulative earn-out will be made in cash, 90 days after the respective period

Additional Deal Terms.

in the ordinary course of business).
– A minimum working capital balance.
– An XpresSpa Group non-compete and non-solicitation for a period of three years.
– A voting agreement whereby, if XpresSpa Group owns in excess of 3% of the
outstanding shares of Route1, all common shares issued as part of the
