(2) The Company in the 1st half of 2023 has been continually having to adapt to change by addressing to the abrupt unanticipated transition from high Natural Gas prices of over CDN$5.00 per mcf in 2022 to the recent prices of under CDN$2.50 per mcf in 2023. As part of this transition, there has been the delay in the ramp-up of the Vertically Integrated Energy Business. Therefore, despite best efforts from time-to-time, part of this transition has been on-going negotiations with Micro Turbine Technology ("MTT"). The Company recently attended meetings in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and acknowledged that there have been some delays and despite our differences can confirm, that upon delivery of the outstanding payments to MTT that are within the budget noted above, it will have fulfilled its obligations and will be back on track. ' Despite our legal differences on the interpretation of both parties' contractual engagements, once Avila's financial commitments have been honoured with MTT, it will have cured MTT's Default Notice and be current on all its financial obligations towards MTT. Accordingly, Avila looks forward to ramping up its previously announced Vertically Integrated Energy Business in the course of 2023.
