Victoria, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 5, 2024) - Tiny Ltd. (TSXV: TINY) ("Tiny" or the "Company"), a Canadian holding company, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of MediaNet Solutions, Inc., ("MediaNet"), an Arizona based educational software business.

We are thrilled to be welcoming MediaNet and its employees to Tiny. The founder of MediaNet, Jeff Kline, brings a wealth of expertise in the special education software industry and has done a great job stewarding the company over the last two decades. We are excited to partner with him for the next phase of the business, with a plan to drive growth while delivering exceptional value to its customers.

MediaNet Overview

Founded in 1997, MediaNet has over 20 years of experience in special education management in Arizona. The core software product, e-IEP PRO, integrates all federal and state required reporting documents into a single system. The system allows teachers, district administrators, principals, and other service providers to track and log state required information, including SPED student data, individual education plans (IEPs), transportation documentation, referral forms, Medicaid session tracking and other critical items.

In addition to e-IEP PRO, MediaNet offers e-ELL PRO English Learner, which helps with the management of the English Learner process in Arizona and e-MTSS PRO System, which helps with the management of the Multi-Tiered System of Support process in Arizona.

MediaNet's quality solutions and top tier customer service has enabled them to serve approximately 580 districts and agencies in Arizona while maintaining a 98% gross customer retention rate over the last five years. We believe this is a testament to the quality of MediaNet's software and the service its employees provide.

The acquisition of MediaNet was completed in all cash by Tiny Capital (US) Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tiny Ltd.

The acquisition qualified as an "Exempt Transaction" within the meaning of TSX Venture Exchange Policy 5.3 and terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
