Newtopia Expands Relationship with Fortune-50 Health Services Client

Building on 2021 success, Newtopia's expanded rollout will propel growth as it will be larger and launch six-months earlier in 2022 than the prior year

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Newtopia Inc. ("Newtopia" or the "Company") (TSXV: NEWU) (OTCQB: NEWUF), a tech-enabled habit change provider focused on preventing, slowing and reversing chronic disease, today announced that it is launching an expanded rollout with an existing Fortune-50 Health Services client in Q1.

"We are thrilled that our Fortune-50 Health Services client has encouraged Newtopia to capitalize on the 2021 momentum by introducing a larger rollout to their employee population earlier in the year so that we can address the significant mental and physical health risks within their population as soon as possible," said Jeff Ruby, Founder and CEO of Newtopia. "As a result, we expect a boost in welcome kit revenue in Q1 of this year followed by increases in our recurring subscription fee base throughout the year, providing solid organic growth for the business. This expansion opportunity not only recognizes our mutual enthusiasm for the industry-leading levels of engagement achieved during 2021, but also the increased size and earlier timing of the expanded rollout will help propel Newtopia's growth."

Mr. Ruby continued, "The two key questions on the minds of our clients to evaluate success and determine expansion are: (1) do employees like and engage in the experience; and (2) are there outcomes to demonstrate that it works? I'm delighted that we've been able to clearly demonstrate success on both fronts. Our client is clearly seeing the kind of outcomes that are making them want to expand, and we will be providing 12-month data points in the coming months. Regarding engagement, we're very grateful for feedback from our client's participants, like Felicia, who shared that, 'Newtopia has changed my life with simple and easy small changes with big results.' That enthusiasm translated into high levels of monthly engagement averaging 81% over six months, with 88% of participants indicating they would highly recommend Newtopia to colleagues. 

"As to demonstrable clinical outcomes, program results to-date with this client are replicating the outcomes from Newtopia's peer reviewed randomized control trial funded by Aetna and further confirm the industry leading risk reduction and cost savings efficacy of Newtopia's habit change outcomes. Since we focus on whole-person health, it's rewarding to see outcome data that displays significant improvement in both the physical and mental health of participants. We could not be prouder to deepen our partnership with one of America's largest leading health innovators on the front lines of the pandemic, thereby helping healthcare heroes help themselves," concluded Mr. Ruby.
