presentation is not intended to be relied upon as advice to investors or potential investors and does not take into account the investment
objectives, financial situation or needs of any investor. All investors should consider such factors in consultation with a professional advisor
of their choosing when deciding if an investment is appropriate. The Company has prepared this presentation based on information
available to it, including information derived from public sources that have not been independently verified. No representation or warranty,
express or implied, is provided in relation to the fairness, accuracy, correctness, completeness or reliability of the information, opinions or
conclusions expressed herein. Any projections should not be considered a representation of the Company’s potential cash generation
performance in any way. Some of the financial information included in this presentation is preliminary, forward-looking, unaudited and
subject to revision. All forward–looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on its behalf apply only as of the date of
this document, and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements included elsewhere in this document. All forward-
looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, which may cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made. Such
statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are subject to such risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause
our actual results to differ materially from the statements made, including those factors discussed in filings made by us with the Canadian
securities regulatory authorities. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties, such as changes in demand for and prices for the
products of the company or the materials required to produce those products, labor relations problems, currency and interest rate
fluctuations, increased competition and general economic and market factors, occur or should assumptions underlying the forward-looking
statements prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described herein as intended, planned, anticipated, or expected.
The financial projections are preliminary and subject to change; the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise these forward–
looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events,
except as required by law. Inevitably, some assumptions will not materialize, and unanticipated events and circumstances may affect the
ultimate financial results. Projections are inherently subject to substantial and numerous uncertainties and to a wide variety of significant
business, economic and competitive risks, and the assumptions underlying the projections may be inaccurate in any material respect.
Therefore, the actual results achieved may vary significantly from the forecasts, and the variations may be material. The reader is cautioned
not to put undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

Current Distribution Channels
Deveron sells volume data collection to Ag retailers (chemical and
seed companies) and crop protection companies, who have
millions of acres under their management (customers) that they
currently sell to.

1. DVR does not need to invest in a salesforce to get distribution
2. Our customers already have trusted relationships
3. Beachhead contracts for initial value of XYZ acres which can grow as adoption
rates grow
4. Creating new revenue line items for retailers outside of traditional ag product
(chemical, seed, etc)
5. Certain crop protection companies doesn’t have ROI for farmers across entire
fields. They need drone data to support zone based applications
