GLOBAL UAV PROVIDES CORPORATE UPDATE AND APPOINTS INTERIM CFO
Global UAV Technologies Ltd. has undertaken a major
restructuring and cost-reduction process in all business divisions. Global UAV has also received new contracts
including both helicopter and drone-based LiDAR surveys. The company also wishes to announce that Jonathon
Richards, chief financial officer of Global UAV and principal of Red Fern Consulting Ltd., has resigned in favour of the
appointment of Stephen Sulis, also of Red Fern, as interim CFO.
As the company had reported previously, continued restructuring of various divisions of Global UAV has been
undertaken over the past year in order to reduce costs and make the overall company more self-reliant as a revenue-generating entity. This process included layoffs and downsizing of non-revenue-producing divisions to reduce
operating expenses. Several research and development projects and efforts have been completed for the present
operations and may be again re-engaged in the future as required.
The company has refocused its efforts on providing highly specialized services to the mining and industrial sectors,
such as UAV-MAGTM and LiDAR surveys, which have remained the main revenue-producing divisions of the business.
Pioneer Aerial Surveys Ltd. continues to be active, with multiple client contracts completed last quarter
and a strong list of proposals for both new and repeat clients. In the last fiscal quarter, Pioneer completed a 1,000-acre unexploded ordinance (UXO) survey and multiple UAV-MAGTM surveys. In addition, High Eye Aerial completed
multiple high-resolution aerial LiDAR and photogrammetry contracts, including both helicopter-borne and drone-
based LiDAR surveys in the mining, exploration, and electric utility sectors.
Global UAV is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Sulis as interim CFO. Mr. Sulis has worked with
the company alongside its CFO, Mr. Richards. Like Mr. Richards, Mr. Sulis is from Red Fern, and is very familiar with
the business. Red Fern is a company that specializes in providing accounting and consulting services for both private
and publicly listed companies. Mr. Sulis graduated with distinction at Capilano University, North Vancouver, and
holds a bachelor's degree in business administration as well as an advance diploma in international business studies.
Mr. Richards, as principal of Red Fern, will continue to assist the company and support Mr. Sulis wherever possible.
Global UAV Management would like to thank Mr. Richards for his contribution and support over the past year, and
wishes him success in his future endeavours.
