Mission Ready Supports Humanitarian Efforts for Ukraine

Sources IFAKs for Support Hospitals in Ukraine

The Company has successfully sourced within its network a sustainable flow of Individual First Aid Kits (IFAKs) from The Resource Center that will be delivered to the Ukrainian Ground Forces in eastern Ukraine. From there, the IFAKs will be delivered to combat medics on the frontline to respond to the growing need.

“With healthcare workers and facilities directly targeted as part of current Russian warfare tactics, Support Hospitals in Ukraine work is essential to ensure that Ukrainians on the front lines are able to receive medical care and attention,” said Buck Marshall, President and CEO of Mission Ready. “The team of Support Hospitals in Ukraine had to change their focus to respond to the emergency, and we immediately responded to their call for support. With the help of our established network of vendors, we were able to source and provide their organization with much-needed items currently in high demand over the world.”

“The war in Ukraine has created a tremendous amount of pressure on a structure that was already fragile,” said Pasha Fedorenko, Co-Founder of Support Hospitals in Ukraine. “With their demonstrated crisis response capabilities along with their ability to secure virtually anything needed, Mission Ready has allowed us to provide people on the frontline with a continued flow of essential items.”

MISSION READY NEWSLETTER | MAY 2022 | SHAREHOLDER UPDATE & MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Fellow Shareholders,

As we’ve alluded to in our most recent press release, our priority has been to showcase Mission Ready’s capabilities. We have successfully met with United Nations and Ukrainian representatives and continue working with them to establish positive relationships.

The current global political climate has increased the possibilities for foreign military sales and, more crucially, highlighted the need for reliable sources to meet the demand of international crisis and humanitarian response efforts. Consequently, we have developed materials that demonstrate our strengths in these two areas, and we are in constant contact with foreign governments, intergovernmental organizations, and humanitarian groups.

As part of these newly established connections, Mission Ready is working alongside Task Force Antal (“TFA”). TFA is a non-profit organization specializing in crisis management and evacuation support for U.S. Citizens, lawful permanent residents, allies, and their families.

TFA’s inception lies in the end of U.S. operations in Afghanistan. Since then, TFA has successfully managed the safe evacuation of over 1,400 American Citizens, legal permanent residents, and individuals with Special Immigrant Visas, including several high-value assets with heightened security profiles, from Afghanistan. Through its extensive network of trusted assets on the ground, TFA ensures that the basic needs of those in hiding are met and work to coordinate eventual evacuation.

TFA’s team has been working around the clock to ensure that U.S. Citizens, Ukrainian American families, vulnerable Ukrainians, and third-country citizens are safe until they can find passage out of Ukraine to escape the Russian invasion. With countless women and children among them, these people are under constant threat of violence and death.

As some of you have also witnessed through our social media, we have also started working with Support Hospitals in Ukraine, a non-profit organization committed to supporting hospitals in Ukraine with much-needed modern medical equipment and supplies.

To address the critical needs caused by Russia’s war on Ukraine, Support Hospitals in Ukraine are shifting the focus to meeting the most urgent need, by providing tactical medicine and field surgery supplies.

While both these relationships are at their debut, our organizations are aligned and we are mutually committed to working together to support Ukraine.

InvestorIntel.com recently published a story by Matt Bohlsen on April 6th that is Trending in their Top 10 section at #2, which may be accessed at the following link Trending – InvestorIntel. And the story, titled Mission Ready Solutions enters 2022 with a new USD$200 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense may be accessed here https://bit.ly/3K9MUuW

In parallel to our efforts to put Mission Ready at the forefront, we are focused on the growth and scaling of our operations. We firmly believe that these strategic approaches will support our short- and long-term objectives. While scaling entails increasing our short-term revenues, we want to ensure we do so without significantly exhausting our resources. The submission to the V.A. schedule as a prospective addition to our current GSA schedules is a perfect example of the Company’s revenue streams expansion plan. Through our networks and favorable positioning, we have also highlighted areas of need for governments and agencies. We have been working on identifying products, solutions, and technologies that will help us meet future demands. As a result, we have established or strengthened ties through distribution and dealer of record agreements to enhance our offering. We have worked on bringing those partnerships to light for the last year as a glimpse of our progress behind the scenes.

We have bolstered our team, adding industry experts who bring established networks and specialized knowledge to our Company. We have also invested in enhancing our manufacturing capabilities over the last year and are in active discussions for OEM opportunities. We’ve also identified additional revenue streams that would require additional human and manufacturing resources. As a result, we have assessed and forecasted these potential needs and have formed strategic alliances that will support us in meeting and exceeding these new requirements.

Finally, a word from our Chairman, Major General (Retired) James “Spider” Marks:

“As a follow-up to my recent share disposition, I would like to provide some context to clarify that my decision to monetize these shares at this time is in no way a reflection of my sentiments on the direction or future of Mission Ready, and was transacted for the sole purpose of satisfying certain time-sensitive personal obligations. To be clear, I am more bullish on Mission Ready as a Company than ever before which is why I am pleased to have been able to fund the bulk of my requirements through alternate sources of capital. Believing strongly that Mission Ready is on a path towards unprecedented growth and success, both near and long-term, I have every intention to rebuild and bolster my equity position in the Company.”

Through upcoming earnings and investor calls, I intend to pursue the efforts to foster a positive relationship and open channels with shareholders and investors,” concluded Marshall.

Mission Ready Newsletter | March 2022 | Shareholder Update

Fellow Shareholders,


Following a drought period in government spending and times of military withdrawals, political tensions are now at new heights, and the impacts on the world will be felt both economically and politically.

Our mission is to provide governments with the products and solutions they need, when they need them. We successfully positioned Unifire as an emergency response provider, responding to the call of various agencies, swiftly providing them with supplies and solutions adapted to the situations.

As a result, Unifire led the relief efforts for the Afghan refugees’ crisis and, importantly, continues to support the US Government as a solution provider for the increasing number of Ukrainian refugees. With our various strategic contracting vehicles, including the COTS Shelter contract, Mission Ready and Unifire are in a favorable position to provide products and solutions imperative to humanitarian efforts.

And as a Company, we rise to the call of the US Government, but also of foreign governments, including our UN and NATO allies, leveraging our worldwide network of vendors to provide needed items, solutions, and logistical support. We have identified critical areas of need and have actively organized resources to offer a variety of products, from shelters to sleeping bags, cots, potable water solutions, food sources, and more.

In addition to our humanitarian efforts, we are mobilizing our capabilities to answer the call for ballistic solutions needed by our allies, from the basic plates and plate carriers to complete head-to-toe solutions.

Our team is hard at work putting together these resources and showcasing our global capabilities, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their sustained, dedicated efforts. I would also like to thank our ever-expanding network for their continued support.

Finally, our subject matter experts, both internally and externally through the Board of Directors and Advisory Committee, continue to bring forward opportunities to actively explore and pursue discussions with innovators, manufacturers, suppliers, and government stakeholders as part of our continued commitment to offer innovative and potentially disruptive products and solutions.

Sincerely,


Buck Marshall

(Signed “Buck L. Marshall”)
