Selected financial and operational information outlined below should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and related management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Message to Shareholders

2021 was a transformational year for Prospera as the Corporation was restructured to be compliant, and profitable for all stakeholders. Restructuring of Prospera commenced in Q2 2021 with the initial focus on AP arrears, regulatory & environmental non-compliances, safe infrastructure operations, and production optimization. Importantly, PEI has placed additional focus on ensuring its accounting practices are compliant with IFRS standards and is committed to improving the legacy culture associated with Prospera’s accounting policies.

Prospera’s commitment to accounting commenced with hiring new auditor Crowe MacKay LLP (“Crowe”), announced on December 3, 2021. Crowe completed an extensive audit into current and prior periods. Also, conducted a higher count of sample testing, resulting in numerous prior period adjustments. Further, identifying significant internal controls to be implemented. Overall, the audit took longer than expected, however restructured PEI has established much higher confidence in its financial accounting practices and compliance

The 2021 audited financials captured the significant reorganization and business efforts achieved resulting in the current financial position and liquidity. PEI is positioned for accelerated growth in 2022 and years onward (upon a strong Foundational business support pillar).
