TORONTO, ON / VANCOUVER, BC / ERIE PA and LOS ANGELES, CA \ April 21, 2021 / Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE:LQID)(OTC:TRWRF)(FRA:4T51) (“Liquid Avatar Technologies” or the “Company“,), a global blockchain, digital identity and fintech solutions company together with ImagineAR Inc. (IP)(IPNFF), an Augmented Reality platform company, are excited to announce that Oasis Digital Studios (“Oasis”) together with McCartney Multimedia, Inc. and renowned photographer and artist, May Pang are launching the May Pang Gallery. The Gallery will feature an exciting array of photographic and visual artists and their works as Non-Fungible Token (NFT) to collectors through Oasis Digital Studios. The May Pang Gallery’s first NFT collection will feature legendary photographer Ken Davidoff.

Capitalizing on the response to her recently announced John Lennon’s “Lost Weekend” photographs, May Pang and McCartney Multimedia are working with a number of iconic artists and photographers to create an NFT gallery for the sale of visual art in the music and entertainment space. In the coming weeks and months, May Pang and Oasis will partner with some of the music industry and Hollywood’s most notable photographers and artists, starting with Ken Davidoff, to bring their work, including never released images, to the NFT market. A pre-sale list has been established at www.oasisdigitalstudios.com

Ken Davidoff has spent his whole life, since the early age of 4, immersed in art and by the time he was 8, he was a budding photographer. In 1966, at age 17 Ken was working part time as a professional photographer at his parent’s studio, the Davidoff Studio in Palm Beach, Florida. By 19, Ken got the opportunity to photograph The Miami Pop Festival with Jimi Hendrix. With this amazing opportunity under his belt, Ken was able to secure the position of official Photographer of the 1969 First Annual Music and Arts Festival of Palm Beach (The Palm Beach Pop Festival), a 3 Day Festival dubbed Woodstock South which closed with a performance by the Rolling Stones.

“Ken Davidoff’s photographs capture a moment in time that shaped the “baby boomer” generation. In partnership with Oasis, I am happy to feature his work at the May Pang Gallery,” commented May Pang, Curator – May Pang Gallery

Shooting legends like Elvis, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, The Beach Boys, 38 Special, B.B. King, Dale Earnhardt, Harry Chapin, Rush, Loggins and Messina, Bob Segar, Johnny Winder and other iconic individuals and groups, Ken’s photographs portray historic images of the genesis of Rock n’ Roll.

Ken’s 55+ year professional career has focused on the art of the image, creating iconic stories behind the music and the photos. Some of his never-seen-before photographs will be available through the May Pang Gallery and Oasis Digital Studios as NFTs featuring, in Ken’s own words, the stories behind the images.

Working with my old family friend May Pang has brought extra Joy to my daily routine of gathering and helping curate iconic rock ‘n’ roll images, as the family grows to now bring classic rock photographer Ken Davidoff into the world of NFTs, and under the wing of the May Pang Gallery. Who knew a day job could be this much fun?said Ruth McCartney, Digital Diva, and founder of McCartney Multimedia.

ABOUT KEN DAVIDOFF

Ken Davidoff has been a professional photographer since 1966 working in his Father’s photography studio in Palm Beach. His Dad was the Family photographer for JFK. Rose Kennedy would call his home and tell him where the President was, as he loved to elude the Secret Service. The story is that the Secret Service put a “tail” on Ken’s Father so they would know where JFK was. In May of 1968 he photographed The Miami Pop Festival, the 1st East Coast Rock Festival, featuring Jimi Hendrix and The Experience. Over the course of 50 years Ken has photographed many other Rock Legends such as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and Bob Dylan. He also photographed many celebrities such as Dustin Hoffman, Bob Hope, George Burns, Raquel Welch, and Betty Davis plus many more. Politicians include 7 Presidents, 2 Queens and 1 King and Prince Charles and Lady Diana, Historical events such as the Launch of Apollo 11, and the 1972 Democratic and Republican Conventions, many Baseball Hall of Famers are also in Ken’s archive.

In 2008, along with Jack Connell, he started his company, Old Rock Photos.com , an archive of his rock photography on the web; since then he has licensed many of his photos in books, magazines, documentary films, record albums, for clothing, and online publications. In 2009 Michael Lang licensed four of Ken’s photos for his book “The Road to Woodstock”. Early in 2013 he entered the Palm Beach International Film Festival with a short documentary film based on his photographs taken at the 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival. Ken also has 17 photographs in his father’s book, “The Kennedy Family Album” a collection of Kennedy photos taken by Bob Davidoff.

In November of 2013 Sony Records released the double vinyl limited edition album/CD, plus a single also featuring Ken’s photos of Jimi Hendrix live at the Miami Pop Festival. This album featured Ken’s photography on the front and back covers, the inside of the album and an additional booklet of 20 more of Ken’s photos. On the same day NPR released “American Masters” Jimi Hendrix, which included one of Ken’s images used with credit at the end of the broadcast. In March of 2015 Ken became affiliated with the Jimi Hendrix Foundation and CEO, Joe Rosignolo. Joe was kind enough to write the Forward to Ken’s book, giving it full endorsement by the Jimi Hendrix Foundation, “The Miami Pop Festival”, a Photographic Experience” was published In December of 2015. This book is the definitive history of the 1st East Coast Rock Festival, headlined by The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Promoted by Ric O’Barry and Michael Lang, Michael said of the Miami Pop Festival “This is where the seeds of Woodstock were sown.”

Ken also had a photo exhibit at The Palm Beach County Historical Society Gallery about his images from The 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival, featuring The Rolling Stones. He was the Official photographer for that ‘69 Rock festival.

On May 18th 2018, at The History Miami Museum there was a Grand Celebration of the 50th anniversary of the May 18th, 1968, Miami Pop Festival. Close to 1000 people were at the opening where the crowd was entertained for about 45 minutes by Jim Hendrix’s brother Leon. Over 50 of Ken’s images were used to explore the history of Rock’s first East Coast festival. Jimi Hendrix was the headliner along with, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, Blue Cheer, Arthur Brown, Frank Zappa, and the Mothers of Invention, Blues Image, and Tiger Tiger. This was a major event to celebrate one of Rock’s most important festivals.

Soon after, the History Miami Museum show Ken expanded his business ventures and started a new company called VintageRockIcons.com with his longtime friend of over 20 years, Melinda McGilivray. In addition, they have also started a 501c3 nonprofit, The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum Inc. In the future Ken hopes to tour and speak about his life in photography, encouraging the youth of today to express themselves by creating new images in their own way, showing his work to new audiences, and speaking about his career in photography and the people he has met on his journey. The purpose of The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum is to share the history of rock that Ken has captured through his camera lens, and to support and contribute to the local arts scene. The museum would make the public aware of the history of Rock & Roll that South Florida has. Although The South Florida Rock & Roll Museum will initially start with Kens archive it will expand to include other photographers as time and funding allow.

ABOUT NFTs

A Non-Fungible Token, or NFT is a digital asset that represents a wide range of tangible and intangible assets like digital and conventional artwork, collectibles, memorabilia, and other items. However, unlike typical NFTs which are generally digital video or images that represent “moments in time” like an NBA Top Shot or piece of artwork, Oasis will be creating and deploying embedded AR “triggers” in each Oasis supported NFT, and to support and introduce NFT programs, brands, and participants. This will allow users to engage in enabled immersive and “living” shareable experiences through the Liquid Avatar Mobile App and AR enabled websites.

ABOUT OASIS

Oasis brings together leading individuals and organizations in blockchain technology, computer graphics, augmented reality, entertainment, art, sports, gaming, music, media, comic book, memorabilia, and pop culture arenas to support the fast-paced emergence of the NFT marketplace.

The Oasis business model is to create an ongoing partnership with artists, sports personalities, talent, brands, and organizations, and share in the ongoing revenue of the initial sale and any residual sales, creating potential royalty-type revenue relationships. The initial program offerings will consist of digital artwork, with the expected expansion to trading cards, limited editions, and series, and physical product programs.

The Oasis AR Enhanced NFT experience will be available exclusively through the Liquid Avatar Mobile App, which features the ability for user to create digital icons that allow users to manage, control and create value from their biometrically verified digital identity, and is available in the Google Play and Apple App Store.

KWESST $KWE.ca $KWEMF Announces U.S. Patent Award for Phantom(TM), Qualifies for Government Programs $WRTC $BYRN.ca $PAT.ca $POWW

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:07 PM on Tuesday, April 20th, 2021

Electronic decoy product advances to sponsorship and evaluation with U.S. military and another NATO nation

  • Announced the award of U.S. patent 10,969,467 B1 for Programmable Multi-Waveform RF Generator for Use as Battlefield Decoy
  • This patent is one of the core technologies of the Company’s PhantomTM electronic decoy, as described in the press releases of October 5th and December 30th, 2020

Ottawa, Ontario–(April 20, 2021) – KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (TSXV: KWE) (OTCQB: KWEMF) (“KWESST” or “the Company”) today announced the award of U.S. patent 10,969,467 B1 for Programmable Multi-Waveform RF Generator for Use as Battlefield Decoy. This patent is one of the core technologies of the Company’s PhantomTM electronic decoy, as described in the press releases of October 5th and December 30th, 2020.

In conjunction with the patent award, the Company confirmed that the PhantomTM system has just been selected in defence and innovation programs for evaluation, including a U.S. Special Operations Command program, and has been prequalified for government funding with an estimated initial value of approximately $1 million once approved.

“Apart from the potential near-term dollars involved, this qualification and invitation to participate in trials with key agencies in the U.S. and another NATO country signals serious interest in the PhantomTM system,” said Jeff MacLeod, KWESST Founder, President and CEO. He adds that, “These concurrent developments also appear likely to accelerate the pace of market uptake. Accordingly, with the upcoming close of our $4 million financing announced April 9, 2021 we will be prioritizing the productization of PhantomTM to be in the market sooner than originally planned.”

The Company stated that there is growing interest among NATO and partner countries for a tactical electronic decoy to prevent adversaries from locating and targeting friendly forces. This growing interest stems from incidents like one publicly reported in the 2016 where two full Ukrainian mechanized battalions were annihilated by Russian adversaries in three minutes with precision mass fire after locating them based on their electronic signal emissions.

About the PhantomTM electronic decoy
PhantomTM is a compact, lightweight electromagnetic transmitter capable of mimicking the electromagnetic signature of a tactical military unit, fooling adversaries as to the location of NATO and partner nation forces. Recent interest from NATO agencies and defence contractors for this product has resulted in KWESST moving up the scheduled production of demonstration samples of PhantomTM in the Company’s priorities. An earlier prototype version of PhantomTM was procured and successfully trialed in military exercises. The latest version is more compact, with greater capability, and is soldier-portable or can be deployed by Unmanned Aerial Systems (“UAVs” or “drones”). Based on internal research the Company estimates the market for a system like PhantomTM to be worth several hundred million dollars in the U.S. alone.

Draganfly $DFLY.ca $DFLYF Announces Record Revenue in Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2020 Financial Results $FLT.ca $UAVS $ALPP

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:58 AM on Monday, April 19th, 2021
  • Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020, increased by 216.1% to $4.36 million, compared to $1.38 million in 2019

Vancouver, BC., April 19, 2021 — Draganfly Inc. (OTCQB: DFLYF) (CSE: DFLY) (FSE: 3U8) (“ Draganfly ” or the “ Company ”), an award-winning, industry-leading manufacturer and systems developer, is pleased to announce its fourth quarter and fiscal 2020 financial results. Revenue growth for the fourth quarter and the year was driven by a combination of organic growth, the acquisition of Dronelogics Systems Inc. (“ Dronelogics ”), and sales from COVID-19 screening products.

The financial year 2020 was another milestone year for Draganfly. The Company successfully closed and integrated its Dronelogics acquisition which, as planned, became the driver of the bulk of Draganfly new product revenue sales. The Company’s main custom engineering customer effectively shut down this portion of its business in Q1 2020 primarily due to COVID-19; however, services revenues were successfully offset by other drone services work. 2020 revenues were up 216% year over year coming in at $4,363,511 versus $1,380,427 in the previous year. $645,756 represents custom engineering services work, $630,532 represents drone services work and the balance of revenue was from its hardware sales.

The Company recently added health monitoring and prevention to its product and service offering. Securing some key clients in this business line was key to proving out this new vertical. These clients were important for validation of this new technology, but more importantly, it demonstrated the Company’s ability to evolve and offer products and services that have global applicability.

Financial Highlights – 2020:

● Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020, increased by 216.1% to $4.36 million, compared to $1.38 million in 2019.

● As a result of increased product sales and service revenue, the Company’s gross profit increased by $597,973, or 51.5%. As a percentage of sales, gross margin ( 1) decreased from 84.1% in 2019 to 40.3% in 2020. This shift in gross margin is due to a higher percentage of hardware sales.

● The Company recorded a comprehensive loss of $8,015,709 compared to a comprehensive loss of $11,095,057 in 2019. The decreased loss was largely the result of the lack of listing expense resulting from the 2019 amalgamation and the funds received from the disposition of an investment that had been previously written off.

● The Company’s cash balance on December 31, 2020, was $1.98 million compared to $2.43 million on December 31, 2019.

Financial Highlights – Fourth Quarter 2020: 

● Revenue for Q4 2020, increased by 202.3% to $1.49 million, compared to $492 thousand for Q4 2019. The substantial increase in revenue is largely due to the Company’s acquisition of Dronelogics and the retail sales and services business that the acquisition brought partially offset by a decrease in custom engineering services due to the downturn caused by COVID-19. 

● Gross margin percentage for Q4 2020 was 22.2% compared to 91.4% in Q4 2019. The decrease is due to the sales mix as product sales tend to have a much lower margin than those of custom engineering services. 

●Total comprehensive loss for the Q4 2020, was $3.74 million compared to $2.03 million for the same period in 2019. The increase was due to higher office and miscellaneous expenses.

Management also uses non-GAAP measures and ‎metrics in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare ‎annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of executive compensation. For more information with respect to financial measures which have not been defined by GAAP, including reconciliations to the closest comparable GAAP measure, see the “Non-GAAP Measures and Additional GAAP Measures”‎ section of the Company’s most recent MD&A which is available on SEDAR.

ThreeD Capital $IDK $IDKFF Announces Unaudited March 31, 2021 Net Asset Value Per Share – $1.25

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:20 PM on Thursday, April 15th, 2021

  • Announces that at March 31, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share (“NAV”) was $1.25.

TORONTO, April 15, 2021 — ThreeD Capital Inc. (“ThreeD” or the “Company”) (CSE:IDK / OTCQB:IDKFF) a Canadian-based venture capital firm focused on opportunistic investments in companies in the junior resources and disruptive technologies sectors, announces that at March 31, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share (“NAV”) was $1.25.

This announcement is made based on ThreeD’s newly established practice of releasing NAV on a monthly basis as part of the Company’s ongoing response to shareholder interest in receiving periodic information. NAV is calculated based on unaudited month-end financial information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release contains references to NAV or “net asset value per share” which is a non-GAAP financial measure. NAV is calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable GAAP financial measure presented in ThreeD’s consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that the measure provides information useful to its shareholders in understanding the Company’s performance, and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers. This data is furnished to provide additional information and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily indicative of other metrics presented in accordance with GAAP. Existing NAV of the Company is not necessarily predictive of the Company’s future performance or the NAV of the Company as at any future date.

About ThreeD Capital Inc.

ThreeD is a publicly-traded Canadian-based venture capital firm focused on opportunistic investments in companies in the junior resources and disruptive technologies sectors.  ThreeD’s investment strategy is to invest in multiple private and public companies across a variety of sectors globally. ThreeD seeks to invest in early stage, promising companies where it may be the lead investor and can additionally provide investees with advisory services and access to the Company’s ecosystem.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains certain forward-looking statements and forward-looking information (collectively referred to herein as “forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of Canadian securities laws including, without limitation, statements with respect to the future disclosure of NAV by the Company and the approximate timing thereof. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements, which are inherently uncertain, are based on estimates and assumptions, and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that contribute to the possibility that the future events or circumstances contemplated by the forward-looking statements will not occur including, without limitation, risks relating to the timing and content of future public disclosures by the Company or related to the fact that the term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies and may not be indicative of NAV for any future periods. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward looking statements contained in this press release, and the assumptions on which such forward-looking statements are made, are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements included in this document, as there can be no assurance that the plans, intentions or expectations upon which the forward-looking statements are based will occur. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, known and unknown risks and uncertainties that contribute to the possibility that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not occur, which may cause the Company’s actual performance and results in future periods to differ materially from any estimates or projections of future performance or results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as of the date hereof and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, except as required by applicable law. The forward-looking statements contained herein are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.
