CSA, Inc. The Company's acquisition of CSA, Inc. ("CSA") is expected to close during the second quarter of the 2019 fiscal year. Initially, the Company and CSA signed a binding letter agreement on December 20, 2017 that was announced on January 11, 2018, which was subject to the execution of a definitive agreement and receipt of required regulatory approvals. The Company has been in the process of converting the financial statements of CSA from GAAP to IFRS. In the GAAP to IFRS conversion, mCloud encountered complexities in converting the financial statements of a CSA Slovakian subsidiary. These matters are now materially complete and the Company expects to complete the transaction within the next several weeks. The Company previously provided financial information and estimates relating to the combined operations of the Company and CSA that were unaudited and presented on a pro forma basis to illustrate the impact of this transaction on an as completed basis. The Company and CSA began working closely on integration activities when the initial agreement was signed and are continuing in that manner in anticipation of the completion of the acquisition. The below results are for the fiscal 2018 year and are subject to the completion of the external audit currently in progress.

Ascent Aerosytems Inc.The Company and Ascent Aerosystems Inc. ("Ascent") signed a binding letter agreement on September 24, 2018 that was announced on September 25, 2018, which was subject to the execution of a definitive agreement and receipt of required regulatory approvals. In December 2018, Ascent experienced a material increase in its military business, which has continued into 2019. As a result, both companies have mutually agreed, with approval from their respective boards of directors, to change the structure of the transaction to a minority investment in Ascent by mCloud for cash consideration of at least $500,000 as part of a syndicated investment in parallel with other investors. mCloud and Ascent are proceeding with all strategic partnership and joint developments previously contemplated as part of an acquisition structure; however, post-investment, Ascent will continue as a stand-alone entity and not be consolidated into mCloud. The resulting impact is that the Company will not be issuing any shares to Ascent as part of the transaction as disclosed in the September 25, 2018 announcement. mCloud expects to use the leading Ascent technology in its wind turbine, oil & gas and utility transformer business. mCloud will not take part in any of the Ascent military business or operations.Company Conference CallDuring the April 24, 2019 conference, mCloud will discuss the above mentioned updates on their 2018 acquisitions, including providing reconciliations to the above reported financial information with the pro forma information previously provided in the news releases on May 1, 2018, August 23, 2018, and November 27, 2018, which were based on an "as if closed" and an "as if combined" basis. Additionally, the Company expects to provide a full view of the expected trajectory of the recently announced Fulcrum Automation and Britwind agreements, detailing the strategic foundation of these partnerships including growth targets in 2019 and beyond.SummaryPresident and Chief Executive Officer, Russ McMeekin, stated: "2018 was a year of defining and combining the strategic components that form the basis of AssetCare, which we use to serve multiple targeted asset types and applications. In less than two years, our team has positioned mCloud globally in five countries. Our mission in 2019 will be focused on execution and robust growth and profitability."About Universal mCloud Corp.Universal mCloud is creating a more efficient future with the use of AI and analytics, curbing energy waste, maximizing energy production, and getting the most out of critical energy infrastructure.
