For the three months ended July 31, 2016 ("Q1 2017"), total revenue was $3,606,267, an increase of 6.7% over Q1 2016 of $3,381,208, caused by the increase in revenue from products sales. Gross profit in Q1 2017 was $689,201 representing 19.1% of revenue which decreased 48.7% over Q1 2016 of $1,344,840, which was 39.8% of revenue. Operating expenses were $1,233,216 in Q1 2017, a decrease from $1,320,744 in Q1 2016, caused by the decrease of sales related commission expenses. The decreased financing costs of $299,298 in Q1 2017 ($332,333 in Q1 2016) further decreased the total expenses. Although the total expenses decreased, the Company recorded a net loss of $696,414 in Q1 2017, compared with a net loss of $246,748 in Q1 2016 because of the significant decrease of gross profit. Basic and diluted loss per share ("EPS") were -$0.008 in Q1 2017, compared with -$0.003 in Q1 2016. EBITDA was negative $110,566 in Q1 2017, a decrease from $323,794 in Q1 2016. After accounting for an unrealized foreign exchange translation loss of $301,047, the Company reported total comprehensive deficit of $997,461 in Q1 2017, compared with total comprehensive income of $348,633 in Q1 2016. The Company's unrealized foreign exchange income on translation of the Company's functional currency to its reporting currency is subject to fluctuations in the exchange rate between the RMB and the Canadian dollar in each reporting period.

Accounts receivable was $16,980,333 as at July 31, 2016, an increase of 13.5% compared with $14,962,003 as at April 30, 2016, which was attributed to the slow cash collection from the customers during the period.
