Revenue for 2Q was
$660,699 up $29,491 or 4.67% from the same quarter in 2019;

customers and its customer’s supply chains were disrupted;

Adjusted 2Q EBITDA was
$(144,394) as compared to $147,054 in the same quarter in 2019;

·        
Both Gross Margin and
EBITDA were negatively impacted by the reduction in orders processed during the
period, as a result of the Covid-19 shutdown;

In addition, the
company made significant investment in the business during the period, which resulted
in higher wages and opex in 2Q vs 2Q 2019, which is expected to begin to pay
dividends to the company in the second half of 2020, 2021 and beyond, as we
emerge from the pandemic;

·        
Mr. Wayne Homschek
agreed to step down from the Board in order for the company to save on
operating expenses, until such time as the company’s performance has fully
recovered, or when the company completes a financing.  Mr. Homschek,
in his capacity as Managing Director of Bentley Associates L.P., an adviser to
the company, will continue to advise the company as it readies itself for a
future financing;

·        
On a positive note,
Maxim Group, who is also an adviser to the company, will begin to organize an

Open orders as of

first quarter 2020, as the company’s pipeline begins to rebuild.

In commenting on the
performance of the company to date, and on its future prospects, Fawad Maqbool,
the CEO, said, “I am very proud of the job our team has done under these
extreme circumstances; we have gotten through a very difficult time and I can
see the light at the end of the tunnel.  We are not exactly sure how long
that tunnel is, but we are confident in our ability to generate significant
growth for our stakeholders as we emerge from this pandemic.  I say this
because I have confidence in our team and our existing products, but, even more
so, I am very excited about the future products and markets that we are working
on in the areas of 5G and quantum computing, where we have made significant
progress on our IP and our designs. We have had new and existing customer
requests for custom cryogenic products in both Satcom and Nanophysics markets,
indicating support for our new products.  We have recently updated
shareholders on some of these developments and we look forward to updating
shareholders further as these we make progress.  Lastly, given the
interest by the stock market in the industries in which we currently operate
and are targeting (Satcom, Wireless, 5G, Quantum Computing etc), we are hopeful
that we will be able to complete a financing and uplift to Nasdaq in the near
future.  Obviously, there is no guarantee that this will happen given the
unknowns in the market, the business and the pandemic, but is our goal to push
forward this year with a Nasdaq financing as our priority.”
