In May 2023, NXT announced a strategic alliance partnership with Synergy E&P Technologies Ltd., which included an exclusive licence to market and distribute NXT's SFD solutions in Africa. In September, 2023, NXT announced its first SFD survey contract in Turkey. In October, 2023, the company was a finalist for best exploration technology at the World Oil 2023 Gulf energy excellence awards in Houston. Most recently, a new sales agency agreement was announced with Huloolq Ltd. (known as Qamia), an Abu Dhabi-based start-up focused on deep tech disruptive technologies, which covers the United Arab Emirates. Through our collective efforts on these and other strategic initiatives, I have increased confidence 2024 should bode well for the future of the company. On behalf of our board of directors and the entire team at NXT, I want to thank all of our shareholders for their continued support."
