OPERATING AND STRATEGIC MATTERS

Quarter end adjusted loss from operations improved to $507,797 from $680,878 for the last quarter. This was primarily due to stronger revenue growth from new licensing revenue streams and operating cost efficiencies undertaken by the Company over the year. Operating expenses remain relatively the same at $1,917,980 compared to $1,913,268 for the last quarter.

On March 28, 2023, the Company had announced the signing of a National Technology License Agreement with an initial term of three years comprising a minimum base revenue of $5 million plus 22% maintenance for a total of $6.1 million in revenue to be earned evenly over the term. In September 2023 the Company recognized $169,444 of revenue and expects to do so monthly for the minimum term of three years, or $508,332 per quarter and over $2,000,000 in incremental recurring annual revenue.

Over the quarter ending September 30, 2023, the Company also onboarded its first school under the Hank EDU platform and expects to launch additional schools and generate material revenue growth and diversification in the upcoming quarters.

Michael Hilmer, Chairperson and CEO commented, “We are excited to initiate new revenue streams from previously announced endeavours and look forward to expanding channels such as Hank EDU imminently. Base revenue and cashflow related to new licensing deal are predictable and has potential for upside as and when the licensee exceeds minimum usage per the base license deal.” He added, “We are confident or our execution of Hank EDU strategy and await new agreements and, Further, we look forward to continuing to innovate and launch new enterprise products throughout the upcoming year.”

The Company granted 25,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.10 to an employee. The options are subject to the standard provisions of the Company’s Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan.
