- Capital management
The Company’s objective when managing capital is to maintain adequate levels of funding to support the development of its business and maintain the necessary corporate and administrative functions to facilitate these activities. The company is transitioning from primary reliance on equity financing to reliance on non-refundable client deposits.
- Liquidity and capital resources
The Company anticipates its working capital will continue to improve over time as it obtains additional non-refundable client deposits on future orders and funding. The Company intends to fund short-term capital requirements via non-refundable client deposits and equity financing.
The Company may seek such additional financing through debt or equity offerings for the purposes of international expansion, but there can be no assurance that such financing will be available on terms acceptable to the Company or at all.
- Other risks and uncertainties
The Company has successfully transitioned to an operating business and intends to seek new markets for its products, and ventures or other opportunities which could include acquiring a business or assets. These activities could require additional debt or equity financing. There can be no assurances that the Company will continue to be able to obtain adequate financing in the future or that the terms of such financing will be favorable.
