Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 28, 2021) - Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTCQB: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a COVID-19 testing service agreement with the entertainment operations and talent department for a cruise line owned and operated by one of the world's largest media and entertainment company.
The Company will be providing the 1copy™ COVID-19 qPCR Multi Kit, ("1drop"), that can identify the new variants of COVID-19, for use in testing at the Toronto area rehearsal facility for their officers,crew performers, directors, choreographers, audio technicians, stagehands, and costume technicians who train and rehearse for port adventures, family and adult programming, youth activity performances with theatrical productions, live music, and special events while shipboard.
The scheduled testing will commence September 30th continuing into the first quarter of 2022 and will increase each month until the full entertainment operations are hired and trained.
"This new testing service for the cruise industry gets our feet in a new revenue stream. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, cruise ships were particularly hit hard, which brought the industry to a halt worldwide stranding over 50 cruise lines and more than 270 ships. In an industry worth approximately $150 billion, and 1,177,000 jobs equaling $50.24 billion in wages and salaries, it is important to test crew regularly to minimize the threat of a shutdown again," stated Marshall Gunter, CEO of Datametrex.

All statements included in this press release that address activities, events, or developments that the Company expects, believes, or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions made by the Company based on its experience, perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances. In addition, these statements involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections, and other forward-looking statements will prove inaccurate, certain of which are beyond the Company's control. In particular, there is no guarantee that the parties will successfully negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement on mutually acceptable terms or complete the Transaction in the manner contemplated herein, if at all, that the due diligence of any of the parties will be satisfactory, or that the parties will obtain any required board, shareholder, third-party and/or regulatory or other governmental approvals, if any. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASUREMENTS
The Company has included non-IFRS performance measures throughout this press release, including (a) Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"); (b) Adjusted EBITDA which is EBITDA adjusted for the gain (loss) on change in fair value of the Company's investment properties and the gain (loss) on change in fair value of derivative instruments; and (c) Book Value per Share which is calculated as equity attributable to Datametrex AI Limited shareholders divided by total common shares outstanding at the end of the reporting period. These non-IFRS financial measurements do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Accordingly, these performance measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Management uses EBITDA metrics to measure the profit trends of the business units and segments in the consolidated group since it eliminates the effects of financing decisions. Certain investors, analysts and others utilize these non-IFRS financial metrics in assessing the Company's financial performance. These non-IFRS financial measurements have not been presented as an alternative to net income or any other financial measure of performance prescribed by IFRS. Reconciliation of non-IFRS measures has been provided throughout the Company's MD&A, as applicable, filed under the Company's profile on www.SEDAR.COM.
