    Additional Note:

    DVOF has worked with Spectra since 2004 and obviously does see value in the company going forward, especially over the last few years with growing sales and profitable quarters. The reason for their leniency is because DVOF knows there is a larger gain coming from share appreciation and sale down the road compared to making 6-7% interest on their debentures which is true. In the end, based on Spectra’s latest sales, they should be able to pay back DVOF their principal and give that fund a higher value for their shares. But in order for DVOF to sell, they will need to find one larger buyer or Spectra will need to sell itself to another company.

    MD&A Company Highlights

    About Spectra Inc:
    Spectra Inc., (the “Company”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Spectra Products Inc., supplies products to the transportation industry. The current product line includes a visual brake stroke indicator, Brake Safe®, that permits vehicle drivers and maintenance personnel to visually determine the brake adjustment condition of a truck, trailer or bus equipped with an air activated brake system. The Company’s electronic version of Brake Safe® is an air brake diagnostic system called Brake Inspector®. This product provides an in-cab display of air brake status and permits diagnosis of various existing and potential brake problems with the foundation brakes of trucks, trailers and buses. The Company also supplies an anticorrosion lubricant called Termin-8r® to the transportation industry and Zafety Lug Lock® a product that prevents wheel-end lug nuts from loosening leading to wheel damage or wheel loss. The Company’s product includes Hub Alert® a heat sensitive label that is applied to each wheel hub of trucks, trailers, buses and off road vehicles to provide an early warning of critical temperature threshold levels where safety and maintenance issues may be pending. The Company introduced in the fourth quarter of 2014 a new product, the Arrow Logger™. This system is designed to work in conjunction with the Brake Safe® product by providing enhanced brake monitoring.

    The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets as well as seeking out new products to complement our other offerings. The Company will continue to form strategic distribution alliances to accelerate its sales outside the Canadian marketplace. The Company recently signed a new distributor in the US that has over 250 locations and has access to a large fleet customer base.

    The Company is marginally exposed to foreign currency fluctuations as certain revenues and expenses derived from sales activities in the United States and China are denominated in U.S. dollars. As at June 30, 2017, the Company had $95,344 of net current assets denominated in U.S. dollars. The Company’s sensitivity to foreign currency fluctuations is such that a 10% strengthening or weakening of the U.S. dollar would result in an $9,534 decrease or increase, respectively, to the Company’s loss before income taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

    Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased by 4 percent to $900,406 compared to revenue of $864,617 for the six-month period ended June 30, 2016. The increase in revenue is attributable to increases in sales of Termin-8r® from $248,646 to $285,341; Hub Alert® from $13,686 to $18,005; and sundry income from $66,181 to $92,145; offset by decreases in sales of Brake Safe® from $398,013 to $390,324; Zafety Lug Lock® from $106,061 to $95,948; Brake Inspector® from $28,766 to $17,359 and Arrow Logger™ from $3,264 to $1,284.

    OUTLOOK
    The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets. As well the Company is seeking out new product to complement other wheel end safety products, Brake Safe®, Hub Alert® and Zafety Lug Lock®

    Spectra Products Inc. is the only company in North America that provides one stop shopping for wheel end safety products in the transportation industry. Brake Safe® addresses the number one out of service violation in North America during road side inspections being brakes out of adjustment. Zafety Lug Lock® and Hub Alert® address the very serious wheel off situation of trucks and trailer losing a wheel and impacting another vehicle causing major damage or potentially causing fatalities.

    The Company’s Brake Safe® product is well established in the Canadian market and as previously reported Spectra Products Inc. is executing its strategy to expand its Brake Safe® visual brake stroke indicator and diagnostic tool into the lucrative U.S. Transportation Industry. The brake violation issues are receiving a tremendous amount of attention from U.S. media as well as increased enforcement resulting in vehicles being put out of service and affecting Fleet safety records. This growing awareness is having a very positive impact on sales of Brake Safe® in the U.S. market.

    The Company’s Termin-8r®product continues to receive strong industry acceptance with a corresponding growth in sales to the transportation segment. The second private label arrangement, introduced in 2010 for a major supplier to the commercial transport industry, is proving to be a strong performer with 2017 private label sales, by dollar amount, now being 81% of total Termin-8r®product sales compared to 71% of total sales during the same period in 2016.

    This one looks interesting.

    What is your target price?

    My concern is that the latest product that was developed was a few years ago, now it is all about sales and business development.

    SSA reminds me of CTZ from back in 2014. Wish we still had that thread from the HSM days, but now it's gone. Anyway, I believe that DVOF will wait as long as needed until SSA pays them back, then sell their position for a premium in the company.

    Depends on how long your willing to wait. These estimates of mine are based on current sales which range in profit from $60-100K and could change drastically if the company adds new customers or new products to sell.

    12 Month Target - I see SSA adding another $250-350K in net income by this time next year, roughly half a cent earning, I give it a multiple of 15, so 7-8 cents(minimum)

    18 Month Target - I see SSA adding $500-700K in net income. This would be used to clean up that debenture which is due August 2019. However, this could get extended again which changes everything. Minimum price of $0.10 but likely higher

    24 Month Target - SSA has either paid off the one debenture or it's been extended to preserve their cash position. It's always possible that a private placement could be done to cover the rest, as stated in the MD&A(seeking additional financing). But I would think in a couple years, based on current sales and possible new sales, stock could trading in the $0.18-0.20 range.

    So could it trade in the $0.20-0.25 range by end of 2019, early 2020? Yes that's possible. Seems like a long time, but roughly a 10 bagger for that time period is very impressive. A stock I think you can buy now, sell half or three quarters of it off in a year or a little more, leave a few shares to ride for the long term.

    This is all about sales like you pointed out and management has told me that even if sales were to triple, costs would remain the same. SSA does between $400-500K each quarter, so if that even went up 25%, it would make a huge impact. Also keep in mind that Michael Faye is still part time, when he leaves end of 2017, SSA saves $100K extra every year going forward.

    First time I've come across this document. It tells you all about DVOF and all their holdings. Spectra makes up 2.3% of their fund and they own common shares, debentures and preferred shares in both the holding company and subsidiary. This means that DVOF is very intertwined with Spectra Inc and must see it workout for the sake of their investors.

    http://docmgt.dynamic.ca/documentdownload/getdocument/606

    Page 8, 10, 11, 13 has information on Spectra. DVOF slightly increased their position in the subsidiary year over year.

    Spectra CFO acquires SPI debenture, preferred shares

    2017-12-20 12:58 MT - News Release

    Mr. Andrew Malion reports

    SPECTRA INC. ANNOUNCES CFO PURCHASES CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED SHARES AND DEBENTURE OF SPECTRA PRODUCTS INC.

    CABE Financial Corp. has acquired the royalty debenture and convertible preferred shares held by Dynamic Venture Opportunities Fund in Spectra Inc.'s partially owned subsidiary company, Spectra Products Inc. (SPI), as well as 1,315 common shares in SPI also owned by Dynamic Venture Opportunities Fund.

    The president, and a shareholder, of CABE is Glen Campbell, a director, chief financial officer and chairman of both Spectra and SPI.

    CABE has also agreed, after completion of the transaction, to amend the terms of the convertible preferred shares to waive the right of CABE to convert such convertible preferred shares to 1,000 common shares of SPI. This waiver ensures Spectra's 67.73-per-cent ownership percentage in SPI will not be reduced in the future as a result of the conversion right previously attached to convertible preferred shares.

    CABE further agreed, after completion of the transaction, to extend the date upon which the convertible preferred shares could be called for redemption. Currently, this date is May 31, 2018. The retraction privileges will now be amended to a series of dates extending into 2020. These extended retraction dates will allow SPI to better manage its cash flow to enable it to meet these new redemption dates.

    The transfer of ownership to CABE of the 1,315 common shares in SPI, the royalty debenture and the convertible preferred shares was approved by the board of directors of both Spectra and SPI.

    Spectra, through its subsidiary, SPI, is the Toronto-based North American designer, manufacturer and distributor of Brake Safe, the visual brake stroke indicating system; Brake Inspector, the company's electronic in-cab air brake diagnostic system; and the Termin-8R line of anti-corrosion and extreme pressure lubricants.

    Liquidity and Cash Flow
    Twelve months ended December 31, 2017 For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, the Company earned $275,065 in operating activities compared to earning $188,897 in 2016. Non-cash items during the twelve months contributed $75,812 compared to $100,726 in 2016. $150,000 was repaid on loans payable during the year and $150,000 of preferred shares were repurchased for cancellation. These all resulted in a net decrease in cash resources of $24,935 and a cash resources balance at the end of the period of $54,811. During the equivalent twelvemonth period in 2016 the Company showed a net increase in cash resources of $35,897 and a cash resources balance at the end of the year of $79,746

    The Company‘s current cash and cash equivalents are expected to meet the anticipated need for ongoing expenses, working capital and capital expenditures. In the event the Company’s cash and cash equivalents are insufficient, the Company may seek additional financing as required to provide working capital, inventory and capital equipment necessary to implement its business plan.

    Management believes that the strong functional and competitive capabilities of its Brake Safe®, Brake Inspector®, Termin-8r® Zafety Lug Lock®, Hub Alert® and Arrow Logger™ product lines will improve the Company’s long-term profitability.

    OUTLOOK
    The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets as well as seeking out new products to compliment our other offerings.

    The Company’s Brake Safe® product is well established in the Canadian market and inroads are now being made into the lucrative American market. With the implementation of its new, aggressive, safety enforcement and monitoring program, CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is bringing the focus onto unsafe Carriers and unsafe Drivers in the US transportation industry. A significant increase in roadside enforcement, citations and fines for all driver and vehicle violations will impact positively on the sales growth of Brake Safe® products. A program has been developed to educate companies of these enforcement changes and the resulting increased intervention by regulatory agencies in order to capitalize on sales opportunities for Brake Safe®.

    The Company’s Termin-8R® product continues to receive strong industry acceptance with a corresponding growth in sales to the transportation segment. The second private label arrangement, introduced in 2010 and made for a major supplier to the commercial transport industry, is proving to be a strong performer with 2017 private label sales, by dollar amount, now being 80% of total Termin-8R® product sales and 27% more than that of the previous year. The company believes that developing new private label arrangements will be a key to the ongoing growth in the sales of this product.

    The Company will continue to form strategic distribution alliances to accelerate its sales outside the Canadian marketplace.

    The Company may seek sufficient additional funds to provide working capital, inventory and capital equipment as needs arise, but at the moment, cash flow from operations is sufficient to support current needs.

    Management Discussion Highlights

    The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while
    introducing those products into new markets as well as seeking out new products to complement our
    current wheel end safety offerings.

    The Company’s Signature Brake Safe® product is well established in the Canadian market and is gaining
    sales momentum in the lucrative American market. The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance [CVSA] is a
    nonprofit association comprised of local, state, provincial, territorial and federal commercial motor vehicle
    safety officials and industry representatives. The CVSA holds brake-focused enforcement events
    throughout the year to identify and remove commercial vehicles with dangerous brake issues from the
    roadways. Brakes out of adjustment continue to be the number ONE out service violation in North America
    as evidenced this year during International Roadcheck and Operation Air Brake.

    A program has been developed to educate companies of these enforcement changes and the resulting
    increased intervention by regulatory agencies in order to capitalize on sales opportunities for Brake Safe.
    The Company’s Termin-8R® product continues to receive strong industry acceptance with a corresponding
    growth in sales to the transportation segment. The private label arrangement made for a leading supplier to
    the commercial transport industry is proving to be an excellent performer.

    The Company will continue to form strategic distribution alliances in the United Sates to accelerate its
    wheel end safety product sales outside the Canadian marketplace.

    equipment as needs arise, but at the moment, cash flow from operations is sufficient to support current
    needs
