“Turnium generated $5.2 million in revenue, a year-over-year increase of 31% compared to 2021.

In addition, the Turnium team continues to grow its sales pipeline along with expanding its newer product portfolio.

Subsequent Events Following September 30, 2022:
Delay in Filings and MCTO: In January 2023, the Company applied to the applicable Canadian securities regulators requesting that a voluntary management cease trade order (“MCTO”) be imposed to restrict trading in the Company’s securities by insiders of the Company, as opposed to a general cease trade order, which would restrict all trading in the Company’s securities. On February 14, 2023, the Company provided an update that the Required Filings were in the process of being prepared but haven’t been completed as a result of the Company’s business combination which closed in June of 2022. The Company continues to work closely with its auditor and expects to be in a position to file the Required Filings no later than February 28, 2023.
Amendment to Loan Facility: In November 2022, The Company successfully completed its negotiations with FirePower Capital to amend its $1,850,000 loan agreement. Under the terms of the amended loan agreement, the maturity date has moved from July 30, 2024 to March 31, 2023. Financial performance covenants have been replaced with a minimum cash balance on hand of $350K. This amendment gives the Company the necessary time to arrange for alternative debt and/or equity financing to replace the FirePower loan.
Restructuring and Cost Cutting Initiatives: In October 2022, the Company announced it had completed a restructuring plan aimed to improve operational efficiencies while reducing administrative and overhead costs by over $1 million per year, shortening the projected time to profitability while preserving R&D, sales and marketing capacities.
Strategic M&A Committee: In October 2022, the Company formed an M&A committee of current board members, led by Ralph Garcea, to evaluate various strategic alternatives.
