Project Seasonality and the Impact of Covid-19 on Operations

Q1 is typically the quarter most impacted by seasonality and timing of projects. In Q1 approximately $500,000 in projects were impacted due to timing issues dealing with on-site restrictions during lockdown periods in Ontario.  These projects will be delivered in Q3 and Q4.

The Company has been affected by ongoing global supply chain issues related to computer processors and other components that are required for BioCloud manufacturing. The impact has been primarily due to long lead times and scarcity of components. The Company is actively working with its supply chain partners to manage the supply chain.

There is no change to the Company’s revenue and adjusted EBITDA targets previously presented on April 7, 2021.
