Though we are unable to definitely predict the aggregate value of Purchase Orders to be issued across the Contracts during the Term, with another 6 months and up to ~$323 million in runway remaining, we continue to proactively demonstrate Mission Ready’s preparedness and ability to accommodate additional Purchase Orders across the Contracts in the coming months in an effort to maximize the value of the Contracts to the Company beyond the Purchase Orders currently queued for delivery.”
