  2. D ISCLAIMER AND F ORWARD L OOKING S TATEMENTS This presentation contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding the Company’s future financial position, business strategy, projected costs, strategic partnering, regulatory actions, the capabilities of the Company’s platform, and plans and objectives of management for future operations. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations and beliefs, as well as a number of assumptions concerning future events. Typically, these statements contain words such as “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “plan,” and similar expressions. These statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors, many of which are outside of the Company’s control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements – including, but not limited to, the extent of our future losses, our ability to develop and market our products, development or commercialization of similar products by our competitors, and our ability to comply with applicable governmental and securities regulations and standards. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements because actual results may vary materially from those expressed or implied. All forward-looking statements are based on information available to the Company on this date and, except as required under applicable law, the Company assumes no obligation to, and expressly disclaims any obligation to, update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. 2

  4. SQI Overview SQI Diagnostics was founded in 1999 on the simple idea that the number of blood tests performed to diagnose a patient was large and growing and that reducing the effort to complete these multiple tests would create a significant benefit. SQI has invested over $45 million dollars to develop products and automated systems that enable customers to produce many test results simultaneously saving them time and money (“multiplexing”) while delivering the technical performance they demand. SQI targets two large markets: (1) Diagnostic testing laboratories and (2) Drug development companies (Global pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology companies) Our target pharmaceutical development customers have publically presented the superior technical performance of our products and compared this performance to competing and current test technologies. Our tests significantly decrease the total cost of delivery for drug development programs and diagnostics testing laboratories by running numerous test simultaneously, reducing total labour costs. Since mid- 2013 we have signed four Master Service Agreements with some of the globe’s largest pharmaceutical companies to evaluate our drug development testing products. We have completed prototypes under each of these agreements, each in a matter of weeks. We have since converted two of these initial evaluations into paying customers and are confident of converting the remaining two as we also continue to make progress winning new customers. We continue to develop and file for approval of our in vitro diagnostic tests targeting diagnostic testing labs. We estimate that labour reductions alone could decrease the cost-base of processing tests using our products by much as 40% in a market comprised of mare than 1,000 US-based labs. 4
