Outlook

Generally speaking, D-BOX will set its priorities on two significant development paths, namely commercial theatres and the clientele of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) each one of them addressing their specific market. In the short term, D-BOX intends to allocate the vast majority of its human, financial and material resources to the commercial theatre market offering the most interesting possibilities over this period of time.

In regards to commercial theatres, D-BOX intends to continue signing agreements with new movie exhibitors, to increase the number of motion units installed at existing exhibitors and to obtain new titles from movie studios. In North America, as D-BOX now intends to widen its offering to larger national chains, more present, amongst others in large urban centres. These chains provide the potential to significantly accelerate the speed of deployment as well as the Corporation's current visibility.

As for the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) clientele, the Corporation intends to continue its quest for established and recognized partners within their respective markets while possessing an international scope. The Corporation believes this strategy will allow for a reduction of its sales and marketing expenses while allowing for a more rapid deployment of its motion generation systems.

By increasing its visibility and brand awareness, the Corporation believes that all of its business segments will eventually experience sustained growth.
