("Catenae", the "Company" or the "Group")

Catenae signs Joint Venture with Blackhive Africa Medical

Catenae Innovation PLC (AIM: CTEA), the AIM quoted provider of digital media and technology, announces that it has signed a 50/50 Joint Venture agreement ("JV") through Onside Now Limited, the joint venture entity, with BHA-Medical Limited and BHA-Medical (Pty) Limited, respectively UK and South African entities of the medical equipment supply company, Blackhive Africa Medical ("BHA-Medical"), to deliver an integrated Covid-19 'Test, Monitor, Manage Programme' which has the potential for use and deployment by governments, businesses and organisations.

To date BHA-Medical has supplied approximately 350,000 CE-certified Covid-19 Near-Patient Three-Antibody Tests to businesses within the UK, including to two FTSE 100 companies.

BHA-Medical will provide the JV with the Near-Patient Covid-19 Healgen Antigen Test scientifically validated by the UK Government, an oral and nasal swab test which detects current Covid-19 infection, as well as the Near-Patient Three-Antibody Test, for which BHA-Medical has exclusivity in the UK to detect current and historic symptomatic and asymptomatic Covid-19 cases using a finger prick blood sample. Both tests are conducted on site by clinically trained professionals and deliver results in around twenty minutes.

Any profits generated through the JV will be distributed evenly to BHA Medical and Catenae. There is no guarantee that the JV will generate profits. The Company will update the market with developments at the JV in due course.

Catenae's technology solutions allow for the inputting of the Covid-19 test results into the Company's GDPR-compliant data management platform utilising the Company's distributed ledger technology (blockchain). Administrators of the platform will have access to a 'Data Intelligence Dashboard' in order to monitor the health status of their populations and respond to outbreaks and hotspots of Covid-19 infections.

In addition, where needed, individuals who have taken either of the above Covid-19 test are able to download Catenae's proprietary Onsite ID mobile app whereby their Covid-19 test status can be disclosed in a secure digital medium. Their test result can also be sent to them via the platform's 'Push notification' functionality.

Guy Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of Catenae, said: "We are pleased to have entered into a Joint Venture agreement with BHA-Medical both here in the U.K. and in South Africa. BHA-Medical and ourselves are strategically aligned given that we complement each other's offering. Our revenue models are both volume based and both have the capacity to scale. BHA-Medical's presence in South Africa also dovetails into the current market activity that Afrik-ID are undertaking across the SADC region from neighbouring Botswana.

"We are committed to providing the technology and software required to help governments, businesses and organisations safely and securely monitor and manage their populations during these difficult times.

"We look forward to updating the market as the JV progresses."

Gavyn Hough, Group Director of BHA-Medical, said: "BHA-Medical is a global supplier of medical equipment and consumables. Recently, our team has dedicated itself almost entirely to supporting the fight against Covid-19. BHA-Medical is bringing the latest near-patient testing technology to our clients, enabling cases to be identified faster, tracing procedures to be initiated faster, staff kept safe and lives saved. Working in partnership with Catenae will provide individuals, organisations and governments with real-time health data, which, when coupled with the latest BHA-Medical testing technology, will create Covid-19 confidence and the safest possible environments."

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014. The person who arranged for release of this announcement on behalf of the Company was Guy Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
