Destiny develops and markets software as a service (SaaS) solutions that solve critical digital distribution and promotion problems for businesses in the music industry. The core of our business is Play MPE®. Play MPE® is a service for promoting and securely distributing broadcast quality audio, video, images, promotional information and other digital content through the internet. The system is currently used by the recording industry for transferring pre-release broadcast quality music, radio shows, and music videos to trusted recipients such as radio stations, media reviewers, VIP's, DJ's, film and TV personnel, sports stadiums and retailers. Music is protected by Play MPE®'s patented proprietary watermarking system which provides watermarks unique to each recipient. Destiny is currently developing additional functionality and services that are expected to increase the services to existing platform users and therefore expand Play MPE®'s addressable market, or act as catalysts to the Company's sales activities. As well, the Company is investing into research and development on incremental product offerings expected to add addressable market opportunities.
The Company's core business is the Play MPE® platform. Play MPE® is a two-sided B2B marketplace that enables music labels and artists to distribute promotional content and musical assets on the one side, and for music broadcasting professionals, music curators and music reviewers to discover, download, broadcast and review the music, on the other. Play MPE® provides a software-based tool to assist record labels and artists in marketing their music. Record labels and artists are Play MPE®'s customers and pay for submission into the system. Recipients are provided no charge access to review music. When adding music to the Play MPE® system, record labels are targeting specific industry recipients who review and broadcast their music. With this marketing effort, record labels are targeting an increase in their revenue directly through on-air broadcast royalties, streaming royalties and synchronization revenue (revenue when the reproduction of a song is coordinated with video advertisements, television, or film), and indirect increases in revenue through growing song and artists' popularity (for example concert ticket sales etc.). Customers range from small independent artists, to the world's largest record labels; (the "Major Record Labels") (Universal Music Group ("Universal"), Warner Music Group "Warner" and
Sony Music Entertainment"Sony"). Customers choose Play MPE® for its powerful set of tools, ease of use and its effectiveness in achieving the record label's promotional objectives. Recipients enjoy easy access to desirable music in high quality audio files.
Veikia MPE® CASTER (platinimo programinė įranga)
Play MPE®'s Caster is a full-service distribution management system that includes a complete set of operational functions that provide all necessary software tools to enable labels to manage global marketing campaigns. Broadly, these components include administration functions and distribution functions. Administration functions allow management of labels and sub-labels, management of the assets (audio files, video files, and associated cover art, artist information) that are distributed, and management of client-side users and user permissions (roles with selectable capabilities). Distribution management functions offer powerful contacts management capabilities, release creation, distribution announcements and distribution scheduling, digital rights management by release and by recipient, and release replication and its associated scheduling and digital rights management components. This full suite of tools within Play MPE® was developed for the music industry and in close collaboration with Universal to cater the functions to its global marketing workflow. Many clients do not use the full suite of tools. However, this full set of tools is critical to Universal's global promotional campaign workflow and the core reason Play MPE® distributes internationally for Universal.

Play MPE® is a permissions-only access system such that only recipients designated or targeted to receive content obtain access to that content. Record labels can use Play MPE®'s contacts management system to administer recipient lists. Contacts management offers several features that facilitate efficient updates and maintenance actions that are critically important where users maintain a large recipient database, across multiple users, and multiple recipient lists. Absent these features, list maintenance becomes overly cumbersome, inefficient and leads to inaccuracies. The functionality within the contacts management system is critically important to both distribution hubs at Universal and the Play MPE® operations team to efficiently maintain accurate and active recipient lists. Within Play MPE®'s contacts management platform, the Company's operations team offers for sale carefully curated and actively maintained recipient lists with more than 14,000 music curators around the world. These lists include complete lists in 12 countries, and lists under construction in an additional 38. These selectable lists eliminate the need for our clients to maintain current recipient contact information. These lists offer significant value to all customers, but are necessary for smaller independent labels and artists who do not have the resources to maintain current contacts. Without these curators lists, many sales would not be possible. As active lists in new territories are completed, Play MPE® will grow revenue. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In addition to the contacts management functionality, the Play MPE® product and engineering staff are developing new technical processes to facilitate list development and maintenance. With these technical solutions, it is expected that Play MPE® will expand saleable lists and thereby increase revenue.

Revenue Total revenue for the three-month period ending
November 30, 2021increased by approximately 1% ( $1,134,151in 2021 - $1,123,977in 2020). Play MPE® represents virtually all the Company's revenue. Play MPE®'s year to date revenue grew by 1% (or 1.7% after adjusting for favorable foreign exchange). Play MPE® continued to experience growth in the independent labels in the United States, Europe, and Australiawith an average revenue growth of 3% in this segment.
As our technologies and products are developed and maintained in-house, the majority of our expenditures are on salaries and wages and associated expenses such as office space, supplies and benefits. Our operations are primarily conducted in
Canadaand therefore, our costs are primarily incurred in Canadian dollars while our revenues are primarily denominated in Euros and US dollars. Thus, operating expenses and the results of operations are impacted, to the extent they are not hedged, by the rise and fall of the relative values of the Canadian dollar to these currencies. The Company maintains a large portion of its financial reserves in Canadian dollars to mitigate the downside risk of adverse exchange rates on its operating expenditures. Total operating costs during the three-month period ended November 30, 2021increased by 8.6% to $852,029(2020 - $784,426). Operating Costs in the comparative period, include one-time, non-recuring costs associated with staff restructuring. Adjusting for these one-time costs associated with staff restructuring, overall costs increased by 11.8%. The increase in costs is primarily the result of expanded business development staffing costs designed to expand Play MPE®'s global market share. The Company also increased staffing costs to more quickly expand the company's product offering. A portion of these costs were capitalized. Also increasing overall costs are impacts a weakening of the US Dollar. Foreign exchange impacts are generally temporarily in nature and generally reverse over time. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the three-month period ended
November 30, 2021, adjusted EBITDA was $217,635(2020 - EBITDA $286,402). Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We used Adjusted EBITDA, along with other GAAP measures, as a measure of profitability because Adjusted EBITDA helps us to compare our performance on a consistent basis by removing from our operating results the impact of our capital structure, the effect of operating in different tax jurisdictions, the impact of our asset base, which can differ depending on the book value of assets, the accounting methods used to compute depreciation and amortization, the existence or timing of asset impairments and the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation expense. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as it is a widely used measure of performance and the adjustments we make to Adjusted EBITDA provide further clarity on our profitability. We remove the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation from our earnings which can vary based on share price, share price volatility and expected life of the equity instruments we grant. In addition, this stock-based compensation expense does not result in cash payments by us. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as a profitability measure in that it does not include the interest expense on our debts, our provisions for income taxes, the effect of our expenditures for capital assets, the effect of non-cash stock-based compensation expense and the effect of asset impairments. The following is a reconciliation of net income (loss) from operations to Adjusted EBITDA over the eight most recently completed fiscal quarters: 2022 Q1 2021 Q4 2021 Q3 2021 Q2 2021 Q1

Net cash used in operating activities for the three-month period ended
November 30, 2021was $52,626(2020: net cash provided by operating activities of $441,654).
