Please see 2015 Management Discussion and Analysis for detailed notes and definitions

"Based on International Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), the Company has taken a non-recurring provision of $184,876 US to write-down the inventory value of two legacy military components, for which meaningful sales have not occurred in the last 36 months. Management feels that these products have a high value and will be sold as US military budgets increase.  Gross margin, excluding the non-recurring write-down provision for inventory, increased to 57 percent from 55 percent in 2015," stated David Grant.  "As a company with significant fixed assets, tax considerations can have a significant effect on income.  In 2015, deferred tax expense (a non-cash item) increased to $174,937 US from a credit of $297,493 US in 2014, as a result of a reduction of tax losses carried forward to future years.  Deferred income tax expense reflects, in part, the effect of temporary tax-to-book differences in the depreciation in the carrying value of the Company's large base of capital equipment.  These potential swings in the income statement lead most investors to evaluate a company like Omni-Lite on an EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA basis."

The Company is also pleased to note that it has received new contracts in the amount of $433,000 US.  Of these orders, approximately 30% are in the Aerospace division, 32% are in the Specialty Automotive division, and 38% are in the Sports and Recreational division.  This brings the total value of new orders announced in the last three months to over $4,200,849 US.  Of these 40% are in the Aerospace division, 30% are in the Military division, 24% are in the Specialty Automotive division and 6% are in the Sports and Recreational division.  At the US to CAD currency exchange rate of April 29, 2016, these orders are valued at approximately $5,293,000 CAD.
