Officer. "This was a very strong year for us and affirmed the value
of our DRIVER product. DRIVER is now a fully web enabled SAAS
product that we sell via annual licenses. In Q4 as well as

marketing of DRIVER. We believe the momentum will continue to grow

course of the annual contract, while the timing of the contract
will affect how much revenue is recognized during the year, we
fully expect to end the year with many more multiples of contracted
DRIVER sales than we had in the year prior. Coupled with
other possible activities within Terra and the continued maturation
of our Climate Risk group, we expect 2022 to show continued strong
