Q1 2017 HIGHLIGHTS

During the quarter, our development teams continued to work on development of the OneBridge software applications, in conjunction with our participation in the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator program. We engaged several contracted teams who possess advanced educational and technical knowledge regarding specialized Machine Learning algorithms that are being developed and applied to our applications. Beta versions of the software were shown to selected pipeline companies, some of whom have since joined our Private Preview program for pipeline Integrity Management ("IM") software products. Components of our Compliance Analytics ("CA") software products were also advanced and a contract involving Public Awareness was completed and billed to a customer during the quarter. New personnel who are highly experienced regarding both the IM and CA divisions were engaged, either during or subsequent to the quarter-end.

OneBridge's participation (on-site in Seattle) in the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program for Machine Learning and Data Sciences completed on June 2, 2016 and culminated with "Demo Day", wherein OneBridge's business and technology was showcased to an international audience of analysts, press, investors and the public, at a Seattle venue hosted by Microsoft and streamed live over the internet. As a result of the Accelerator program, we had opportunity to familiarize key members of the Microsoft sales teams who service Microsoft's Oil, Gas and Mining enterprise customers about the OneBridge products. Working collaboratively with this Microsoft sales team, we succeeded in garnering our first enterprise level customer, who contracted to participate as a Private Preview customer for our IM software subsequent to the quarter end.

Further to the sale of the OneNFP assets to Tangicloud Technologies Inc., our OneCloudCo subsidiary continued to assist Tangicloud to transition the OneNFP business, which efforts are expected to fully conclude by the end of July 2016.

In the quarter, the Company had consolidated revenues of $102,528 versus $66,564 in the same quarter last year. Product development costs of $309,435 were capitalized in the quarter and the net loss was $404,473. This compares with a net loss recorded for the comparable period last year of $619,601.

In March 2016, the Company closed an additional private placement financing to accommodate an over subscription of the private placement that completed in February, 2016. An additional 3,333,333 units were sold on the same terms as the prior private placement, which contributed an additional $250,000 of funding. As at May 31, 2016, cash was $806,177 and working capital was $685,280. Subsequent to the quarter end, in June, 2016, certain shareholders exercised a total of 1,930,000 warrants with a strike price of $0.10, to acquire the same number of shares for cash proceeds of $193,000. Management anticipates that other warrant holders may exercise their warrants in the coming months, which will contribute additional funding.

In May 2016, the CEO conducted a visit to meet with several investment groups and technology analysts based in Toronto, to familiarize them regarding the Company's progress. OneSoft subsequently engaged the market making services of Integral Wealth Management of Toronto, effective June 1, 2016, in order to facilitate more orderly trading of the Company's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange. Additionally, Cantech Communications of Vancouver was engaged to provide certain on-line communications and advertisements which are designed to familiarize technology analysts and potential investors regarding the Company's potential opportunities and strategies.

The Company continued to aggressively pursue legal action concerning the $528,000 owed by Sylogist Ltd. from its purchase in 2014 of the Serenic subsidiaries and defend the retaliatory Counterclaim filed by Sylogist during Fiscal 2016. OneSoft continues to believe that Sylogist's actions are base-less and without merit. A hearing for summary dismissal of the Sylogist claim was filed by OneSoft, which has been scheduled to be heard on November 8, 2016.

OUTLOOK

Management's priority over the next few months is to continue to progress the development of the OneBridge software applications to incorporate the input of a select group of Private Preview customers. Based on current information and negotiations with Private Preview and other prospective customers, we anticipate that meaningful revenue generation will commence following release to general market of commercially viable solutions during the fall of 2016. Thereafter, our strategy is to continue to enhance our software applications with additional functionality in two further development "sprints", currently scheduled to complete in mid and late calendar 2017.

We believe that our participation in Microsoft Venture's Accelerator program has provided opportunities to advance our business from several perspectives. Our technology and product development was accelerated, as was the advancement of our sales, marketing and business development initiatives. We are now working collaboratively with Microsoft personnel who focus on sales activities at the executive level with oil and gas pipeline companies. The Accelerator program also introduced the Company to investor groups seeking investments in next generation cloud software companies and these introductions may be highly beneficial to advance our corporate development and value creation objectives.

We believe that OneSoft's early adoption and investment in Microsoft's Cloud technology and alignment with Microsoft cloud software deployment strategies have positioned the Company for significant future growth and opportunity. Our decision to focus our resources and efforts on the OneBridge project appears to be highly opportunistic, in our belief, as our business involves enterprise level customers who are highly motivated to improve their pipeline infrastructure and comply with increasingly stringent operational, safety and regulatory requirements. We believe that our software solutions that address these requirements are revolutionary and disruptive to legacy systems currently in use in the industry, and that they provide comprehensive and cost-effective functionality and capability that legacy systems are not able to accommodate.

We intend to pursue corporate development initiatives necessary to support value creation for our shareholders, including implementation of investor relations initiatives and pursuit of joint ventures and potential M&A projects which are synergistic to our strategies.

Management believes that the combination of cash generated from its recently closed private placements, the Private Preview revenue we anticipate will be earned and the potential exercise of outstanding warrants will be sufficient to finance the Company from its current early-revenue stage to profitability by the end of fiscal 2018.
