Retention of Market Maker

Cymat has retained, subject to regulatory approval, Mackie Research Capital Corporation ("Mackie") to initiate its market making service to provide market making services to the Company in compliance with the policies and guidelines of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") and other applicable legislation.  Mackie will trade shares of Cymat on the TSXV for the purposes of maintaining a reasonable market and improving the liquidity of Cymat's common shares. 

The agreement between Mackie and the Company is for a minimum one year term and the Company has agreed to pay Mackie $3,000 per month during the term, payable quarterly in advance.  After the one year period, the engagement may be terminated by either party with written notice of 60 days.  The Company and Mackie act at arm's length, but Mackie may provide investment banking services to Cymat and Mackie and/or its clients may have an interest, directly or indirectly, in the securities of Cymat.  The agreement is principally for the purposes of maintaining market stability and liquidity for the Company's common shares and is not a formal market making agreement.  There are no performance factors contained in the agreement between Mackie and the Company and Mackie will not receive any shares or options from the Company as compensation for services it will render.

Outlook

For the remainder of fiscal 2017, Cymat has expectations for the inclusion of AlusionTM in significant architectural projects including installations located in Europe, the United States and South America.  The AlusionTM installations in the Mallorca Convention Center and the Fondazione Prada Museum in Milan continue to generate interest in the design community for the use of AlusionTM, especially in the outer façade of buildings. Sales of AlusionTM are expected to continue to be the largest source of revenue for Fiscal 2017.

In the first half of fiscal 2017, Cymat delivered approximately 80% of the kits pertaining to the order from Panhard for 250 SmartMetalTM vehicle blast mitigation assemblies.  Expectations are that there is the potential for additional blast kit orders to be generated from this initial purchase. Based on further prototype and quoting activity in the military segment, Cymat expects significant future developments in SmartMetalTM blast mitigation applications for military/security vehicles. Cymat also continues to explore non-vehicular energy absorption applications for SmartMetalTM including the use of SmartMetalTM in the French nuclear energy industry for designs similar to that supplied in fiscal 2016 as well as additional applications involving the transport of radioactive material.

In the automotive sector, the Company continues to participate in discussions, with an increasing number of participants, concerning the development of SmartMetalTM applications on several fronts including NVH applications, vehicle crash mitigation systems and light-weighting applications. Management remains convinced that SmartMetalTM has the potential to resolve the conflicting requirements within automotive design for increased vehicle crashworthiness while at the same time reducing vehicle weight. Weight reduction is a key strategy being employed by automotive OEM's in order to achieve vehicle fleet fuel economy levels mandated by CAFÉ regulations in the United States.

About Cymat:
