The financial information relating to the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2017 should be read in conjunction with the Corporation's consolidated financial statements, the Management Discussion and Analysis, and the Annual Information Form (AIF) dated June 19, 2017.

D-BOX focuses on two major development areas: the entertainment market and the simulation and training market which have their respective sub-markets. In light of the business development activities in each of these two markets, D-BOX anticipates the long-term upward trend in revenue to continue. In combination with this expected growth of revenue, D-BOX intends to increase the level of its operating expenses aiming, amongst others, to accelerate China market penetration and to support the sales and marketing of technological innovations. This strategy will help solidify D-BOX's position in existing sub-markets and will facilitate entering new ones.

With the advent of the VR world and with D-BOX expertise in immersive motion and true-to-life simulation, D-BOX has actively been developing new applications for VR and other key markets. De facto, D-BOX is well positioned to become a key player in the VR industry given that its technology can reduce motion dizziness sometimes associated with such experiences and may be the missing link that will solve one of the main challenges virtual reality needs to overcome. D-BOX is particularly excited to be part of the new trend as the size of the virtual and augmented reality markets may soon reach billions of dollars according to many industry sources.
