Operational Highlights

At the same time, additional resources were added to the sales team to address this potential.

Commenting the year's realizations, Mr. Claude Mc Master, President and CEO of D-BOX declared: ‟Our financial results are constantly improving while we keep growing in the entertainment and industrial markets, invest more in our R&D and strengthen our sales team. Considering these results and our advantageous positioning, I anticipate enthusiastically the upcoming fiscal year."

Additional information with respect to the fiscal year and fourth quarter ended March 31, 2014

The financial information relating to the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 should be read in conjunction with the Corporation's consolidated financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis dated June 10, 2014. These documents are available at www.sedar.com

Outlook

D-BOX focuses on two major development areas: the entertainment market and the industrial market which have their respective sub-markets. In light of the business development activities in each of these two markets, D-BOX anticipates that the upward trend in revenues should be maintained.

In combination with this expected growth of revenues, D-BOX also expects to gradually increase the level of its operating expenses including fees related to sales, marketing, research and development that will support the commercialization of new applications for its technology for new industrial sub-markets. Generally speaking, the Corporation aims, however, to maintain a positive adjusted EBITDA and intends to manage its operations based on attaining this objective.

Reconciliation of the adjusted EBITDA to the net loss

The adjusted EBITDA allows evaluating profitability and the Corporation's ability to generate cash flows from its operations. It designates the net loss before items not affecting cash, the foreign exchange gain or loss, financial expenses, interest income and income taxes.
