Procurated Announces $2.

5M Seed Funding

Public sector peer review platform backed by Limerick Hill LLC and MayFive Holdings, Inc.

Washington, DC, June 13, 2019 --( Procurated, the leading platform enabling public sector
organizations to incorporate peer reviews in their supplier selection process, announced that it has closed
a $2.5M seed round led by Limerick Hill LLC and MayFive Holdings, Inc.

Procurated's digital platform helps state and local government, educational, and non-profit purchasers
across the country find the most qualified suppliers for their needs. Purchasers will be able to search
candid reviews and ratings for information on the performance of specific suppliers, find qualified
suppliers in hundreds of categories, and provide feedback on suppliers they worked with in the past.

Procurated is investing heavily in its digital platform to ensure the best possible user experience for
procurement professionals. The financing is being used to support a pilot program with members of
COSTARS - the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's cooperative procurement program - and to expand the
product, marketing and operations teams in Washington, DC. The platform will be extended to
procurement organizations nationally later this year.

“We started Procurated to solve one of the most critical challenges facing procurement officials, a
problem I grappled with personally when I ran a multi-billion-dollar procurement office,” said David
Yarkin, Founder and CEO. “Procurement leaders find it increasingly challenging to understand and
evaluate the past performance of prospective suppliers because they often provide only cherry-picked
references. By enabling candid supplier reviews from purchasing officials across the country, Procurated
enables procurement professionals to make much more informed purchasing decisions,” said Yarkin.

“As longtime investors, we have looked for opportunities to invest in companies that rely on great teams
to solve big challenges for their customers,” said Paul Finnegan, Managing Member of Limerick Hill
LLC. “We are thrilled to lead Procurated's current financing because we believe wholeheartedly that the
company will help procurement officials nationwide serve their citizens and constituents by selecting the
best qualified suppliers.”
