Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - October 23, 2023) - The Newly Institute Inc. ("Newly" or the "Company"), a leading interdisciplinary mental health, addictions, and chronic pain clinic, is pleased to provide an operational and financial update.

Newly is proud to announce that it has been awarded a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder ("PTSD") Program Services Agreement by WorkSafeBC, a provincial agency that promotes safe and healthy workplaces across British Columbia ("B.C."). The multi-year agreement will provide Public Safety and Non-Public Safety Personnel experiencing ongoing trauma and stress-related symptoms from a workplace incident access to treatment programs through an outpatient, interdisciplinary approach to care.

Newly is also pleased to announce that it has secured a location and signed a lease agreement to open its first clinic in Kelowna, British Columbia, in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. The Company's new clinic in B.C., its fourth overall, will allow Newly to provide its leading mental health programs for first responders, veterans, and the general population across the province. This clinic is a key step in The Newly Institute's plan to expand across Canada for the continued delivery of its intensive outpatient programs.

"We are thrilled to expand into the province of British Columbia and continue to assist individuals achieve optimal mental health and wellbeing," says Arthur H. Kwan, Chief Executive Officer of Newly. "Our unique program offerings will be a first for Kelowna, and we are excited to welcome new clients."

By way of a financial update, the Company continues to negotiate in good faith an extension to the forbearance agreement with its bridge loan provider. Doing so will allow the Newly to pursue a recapitalization and growth capital financing. To this end, the Company has retained financial advisors to seek out additional capital.

Finally, Newly is excited to announce a proposed reorganization to set up a new entity, Newly Holdings Corporation, with two wholly-owned subsidiaries: Newly Clinics and Newly Access. Newly Clinics will include the Company's in-person mental health programs and operations and retain all current clinical operations. Newly Access will be a technology-driven entity designed to capture recurring revenue from the Company's patients, post-treatment, using an app currently in development. The Newly app will allow people who have graduated from in-person treatment programs to access additional mental health resources, book new appointments as needed, and gain quick contact with mental health professionals in an emergency. The Company expects to hold a shareholder meeting in late November or early December 2023 to vote on the proposed reorganization and other corporate matters and expects to deliver an information circular to Newly shareholders in early November 2023.

"We are looking forward to connecting with our valued shareholders and discussing the many exciting initiatives we have underway," says Mr. Kwan. "With new clinics on the horizon, a reorganization of the Company to optimize patient support and generate additional income, and a sound financial plan to help us achieve our goals, we believe the future is bright for Newly."
