cue-Rx™ Launch Revolutionizes At-Home Patient Medication Dispensing

Provides Improved Medication Adherence, Greater Independence for Seniors, and Real-Time Communication to Caregivers

cue-Rx DeviceNEW HOPE, Pa.Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Solbright Group, Inc. (OTC: SBRT), soon to be renamed Iota Communications, Inc., recently announced the commercial launch of cue-Rx™, a new medication adherence system that it believes will revolutionize at-home medication dispensing for patients and caregivers by delivering prescriptions in their original containers.

The first medication adherence system that operates with its own dedicated radio communications system, cue-Rx™ attracted attention earlier this month when it was launched at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice Expo in Dallas, TX.

With more than a dozen active trials currently underway, cue-Rx™ begins with an automated device that alerts patients and delivers their prescription at the exact time they should be taking their medication, in their actual prescription container. The cue-Rx™ carousel turns, opens to the correct pill bottle compartment and allows the patient to take their medication as prescribed – right from the original pill bottle. cue-Rx™ provides timely phone, text, and email alerts to clinicians, caregivers, and families in order to quickly identify non-adherent patients. cue-Rx™ is designed for patients at hospitals, in home-care, assisted living facilities, senior living facilities, and continued care retirement communities. The device is also designed for home use – to improve medication adherence long-term, allowing more patients to stay home longer living comfortably and safely.

According to a 2014 NIH study, between $100 and $300 billion of avoidable health care costs have been attributed to non-adherence in the US annually, representing 3% to 10% of total US health care costs.

“As health systems, providers, and families work to better manage high-risk, and high-cost chronic patient populations in order to reduce costs, cue-Rx™ is positioned to play a pivotal role by minimizing non-compliance,” said Kevin Casey, President of Solbright/Iota Healthcare. “cue-Rx™ is a plug and play device and connects via its own dedicated radio system directly to the cloud, thus eliminating reliance on either the patient’s or the facilities’ networks. This flexibility not only offers critical reliability of access to end users, but it also reduces overall costs. Clinicians are enthusiastic about the positive impact cue-Rx™ will have on compliance.”

Dr. Daniel Kullukian, M.D. of Surgical Healthcare, LLC in Phoenix, AZ recently reviewed cue-Rx™ for use in a post-acute medication reconciliation trial. “cue-Rx’s simple design and powerful software will help our patients stay on track with their medications, improve their quality of life, and give families the peace of mind that their loved ones are taking their meds as prescribed,” he said. “When you consider the positive effects of cue-Rx™ across our entire patient population, the savings to our health system from improved compliance will be enormous; largely in our geriatric population.”

Solbright/Iota’s CEO Barclay Knapp has a positive outlook about the launch of cue-Rx™, citing teamwork and dedication as the pillars that turned the product into a reality. “We’ve teamed beautifully with our IP partner, One World, as well as our test and trial customers to develop and commercialize cue-Rx™,” Knapp said. “We’re very excited now to see the product get into the hands of real patients who are benefiting from the device. We are especially pleased that cue-Rx™ is already having a positive impact on the quality of life for those patients in our current trials.”

One of those patients, Ms. Erleen Lane, who confirms the value of her cue-Rx™, stated, “I began my cue-Rx™ trial one week ago, immediately following my discharge from the hospital.  It has already made improvements in my life. cue-Rx’s simple and sleek design, easy-to-use software, and improved alerts will help me stay on track with my medications.”

Lane said cue-Rx™ has begun to make her more consistent with her medication dosages and has helped improve her quality of life.

“It is allowing my family the peace of mind that I am taking my medicine as prescribed,” she explained. “The best part is, if I forget my meds, cue-Rx™ will call me and my loved ones to remind us. With cue-Rx™, I will not be readmitted to the hospital for medication mismanagement any longer.”

The cue-Rx™ product development team continues to add features that are designed to improve the quality of life for patients. The sophisticated onboard microprocessor in cue-Rx™ will allow the product to connect, via Bluetooth or wirelessly, to other wearable and connected peripherals that provide key biometrics for remote, real time monitoring of patients. cue-Rx™ is now actively adding peripheral device partners as well as leading Population Health Portals partners to its hub. This strategy will transform cue-Rx™ from a medication reminder device to a complete and comprehensive hub of wearables and other devices. These wearable devices will feed data in real time via health portals, to providers who can remotely manage these patients.

Solbright and M2M Spectrum Networks Complete Merger to Create Iota Communications, Inc.

Iota Communications to be the first publicly-traded, pure-play, fully-featured IoT network operating company in the U.S.

NEW HOPE, Pa., Sept. 6, 2018  — Solbright Group, Inc. (OTCQB: SBRT), an industrial AI, machine learning and energy management company providing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial and industrial facilities, and M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC, the fast-growing, national, dedicated IoT network access and IoT solutions company, today announced the completion of their merger to create Iota Communications, Inc. (Iota).

Initially announced on July 31, 2018, the merger brings together two companies at the leading edge of the proliferation of the IoT to form a new company that is the first publicly-traded, pure-play, fully-featured IoT network operating company in the U.S.

Prior to the merger, the companies entered into a partnership to create a fully-integrated suite of solutions for commercial facilities, called SFNet, which is a comprehensive, next-generation Smart Facilities line of products that includes IoT-enabled security, asset tracking, facilities management, energy management, predictive maintenance and other services. The unique value proposition of the combined company includes reducing energy costs, increasing asset values, lowering maintenance and increasing productivity at a fraction of the cost of prevailing solutions, resulting in an attractive return on investment for customers.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Spectrum Networks Group, LLC, the majority owner of M2M, converted its previous $5 million investment into Solbright common stock at $1.00 per share. Solbright, which had 38.39 million shares outstanding pre-merger, acquired 100 percent of M2M inexchange for 152.84 million shares of Solbright common stock and the issuance of warrants to acquire an additional 18.28 million shares of Solbright common stock.

With the merger complete, Iota will receive significant funding capability from M2M over the next 18 months and will seek to change its stock trading symbol to reflect the new name while applying for an up-listing of its shares to a major exchange.

The company also announced today the appointment of Barclay Knapp as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer and Terrence DeFranco as President and Chief Financial Officer, who will maintain his position on the board of directors.

Mr. Knapp, 61, has been a successful telecommunications industry executive for more than 35 years. Prior to co-founding M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC, he served as the Chairman and CEO of ProCapital Group, LLC, a management advisory group focused on developing high-growth companies.

Previously, Mr. Knapp was a co-founder and President of Cellular Communications, Inc. (CCI/Cellular One) in 1983, the first cellular company in the U.S. to go public. After more than 10 years of industry-pioneering operations, in the mid-’90s Mr. Knapp facilitated the sale of CCI/Cellular One and its two international affiliates for total valuations of $6 billion.

In 1993, Mr. Knapp co-founded and was CEO of NTL, Inc. (now Virgin Media Inc.), and grew the company into what is now the largest cable and broadband provider in the U.K. In 1998, The Financial Times named him “Telecommunications Executive of the Year.”

Mr. Knapp earned a BA in Mathematics from The Johns Hopkins University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is currently a Fellow in the Center for Financial Economics at The Johns Hopkins University.

Mr. DeFranco, 52, has extensive experience in management, operations and finance of emerging middle market companies. His background is primarily in the area of corporate finance, previously serving as head of investment banking for Baird, Patrick & Co., Inc., and head of investment banking and founding partner of Burlington Securities Corp. He began his career on Wall Street in 1991 with UBS.

From 2004 to 2012, Mr. DeFranco served as Chairman and CEO of Edentify, Inc., a financial risk management software company. Since January, 2013, Mr. DeFranco served as the CEO and President of Solbright Group, Inc. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BA in Economics.

With offices in New Hope, PA, Phoenix, AZ, Newark, NJ, Charleston, SC, and Jacksonville, FL, Iota seeks to become the preeminent provider of comprehensive solutions for creating, connecting and managing communications for the commercial IoT by leveraging M2M’s best in class, end to end network connectivity employing FCC-licensed radio spectrum which ensures ubiquitous and high-quality connectivity of devices.
