The reimbursements received from Bench Walk pursuant to its investment have been accounted for as a long-term non-monetary liability within the consolidated financial statements, not as a reduction to patent litigation expense. All such amounts are non-recourse to the Company. In connection with the terms of the agreement, the Company does not have a present obligation to pay any amounts until such time as the litigation has been settled or an event of default has occurred. In the event of an award or settlement of the litigation, the Company will be obligated to pay Bench Walk the greater of 10% of such award or settlement and $2,000,000 or $3,000,000 if the litigation proceeds to trial.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, patent litigation, restructuring and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA allows Route1 to compare its operating performance over time on a consistent basis.

DoD Contract Award
Route1 announced on August 24, 2020 that it had been awarded a purchase order to provide a one-year license with three one-year renewal options to an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense for 4,000 MobiKEY subscriptions.

The new client for Route1 has the ability to increase their user base in increments of 1,000 subscriptions. The annual software license for the 4,000 users is valued at approximately US $1.5 million.

As a result of this order, using today’s subscriber base and assuming flat subscription growth, on a pro forma basis Route1 expects as of today’s date to generate for the balance of 2020 monthly MobiKEY subscription-based revenue of approximately CAD $740,000. This is in contrast to Route1’s MobiKEY application software monthly subscription revenue of approximately CAD $405,000 in February 2020.

Stock Option Grant
On August 25, 2020, the Company granted independent board directors and employees stock options in the aggregate amount of 400,000 with an exercise price equal to the closing share price on Thursday, August 27, 2020. The stock options will expire on August 26, 2025 and will vest thirty percent on the first anniversary, thirty percent on the second anniversary and the remainder on the third anniversary. Under the Company’s stock option plan, 10% of the issued capital is reserved for issuance for a total of 3,369,861 options. As of today’s date, including the above grant, a total of 3,232,500 options are currently outstanding under the stock option plan.
