Additional Note:
DVOF has worked with Spectra since 2004 and obviously does see value in the company going forward, especially over the last few years with growing sales and profitable quarters. The reason for their leniency is because DVOF knows there is a larger gain coming from share appreciation and sale down the road compared to making 6-7% interest on their debentures which is true. In the end, based on Spectra’s latest sales, they should be able to pay back DVOF their principal and give that fund a higher value for their shares. But in order for DVOF to sell, they will need to find one larger buyer or Spectra will need to sell itself to another company.

MD&A Company Highlights

About Spectra Inc:
Spectra Inc., (the “Company”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Spectra Products Inc., supplies products to the transportation industry. The current product line includes a visual brake stroke indicator, Brake Safe®, that permits vehicle drivers and maintenance personnel to visually determine the brake adjustment condition of a truck, trailer or bus equipped with an air activated brake system. The Company’s electronic version of Brake Safe® is an air brake diagnostic system called Brake Inspector®. This product provides an in-cab display of air brake status and permits diagnosis of various existing and potential brake problems with the foundation brakes of trucks, trailers and buses. The Company also supplies an anticorrosion lubricant called Termin-8r® to the transportation industry and Zafety Lug Lock® a product that prevents wheel-end lug nuts from loosening leading to wheel damage or wheel loss. The Company’s product includes Hub Alert® a heat sensitive label that is applied to each wheel hub of trucks, trailers, buses and off road vehicles to provide an early warning of critical temperature threshold levels where safety and maintenance issues may be pending. The Company introduced in the fourth quarter of 2014 a new product, the Arrow Logger™. This system is designed to work in conjunction with the Brake Safe® product by providing enhanced brake monitoring.

The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets as well as seeking out new products to complement our other offerings. The Company will continue to form strategic distribution alliances to accelerate its sales outside the Canadian marketplace. The Company recently signed a new distributor in the US that has over 250 locations and has access to a large fleet customer base.


The Company is marginally exposed to foreign currency fluctuations as certain revenues and expenses derived from sales activities in the United States and China are denominated in U.S. dollars. As at June 30, 2017, the Company had $95,344 of net current assets denominated in U.S. dollars. The Company’s sensitivity to foreign currency fluctuations is such that a 10% strengthening or weakening of the U.S. dollar would result in an $9,534 decrease or increase, respectively, to the Company’s loss before income taxes for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased by 4 percent to $900,406 compared to revenue of $864,617 for the six-month period ended June 30, 2016. The increase in revenue is attributable to increases in sales of Termin-8r® from $248,646 to $285,341; Hub Alert® from $13,686 to $18,005; and sundry income from $66,181 to $92,145; offset by decreases in sales of Brake Safe® from $398,013 to $390,324; Zafety Lug Lock® from $106,061 to $95,948; Brake Inspector® from $28,766 to $17,359 and Arrow Logger™ from $3,264 to $1,284.

OUTLOOK
The Company continues to focus its efforts on expanding the present market for its products while introducing those products into new markets. As well the Company is seeking out new product to complement other wheel end safety products, Brake Safe®, Hub Alert® and Zafety Lug Lock®

Spectra Products Inc. is the only company in North America that provides one stop shopping for wheel end safety products in the transportation industry. Brake Safe® addresses the number one out of service violation in North America during road side inspections being brakes out of adjustment. Zafety Lug Lock® and Hub Alert® address the very serious wheel off situation of trucks and trailer losing a wheel and impacting another vehicle causing major damage or potentially causing fatalities.

The Company’s Brake Safe® product is well established in the Canadian market and as previously reported Spectra Products Inc. is executing its strategy to expand its Brake Safe® visual brake stroke indicator and diagnostic tool into the lucrative U.S. Transportation Industry. The brake violation issues are receiving a tremendous amount of attention from U.S. media as well as increased enforcement resulting in vehicles being put out of service and affecting Fleet safety records. This growing awareness is having a very positive impact on sales of Brake Safe® in the U.S. market.

The Company’s Termin-8r®product continues to receive strong industry acceptance with a corresponding growth in sales to the transportation segment. The second private label arrangement, introduced in 2010 for a major supplier to the commercial transport industry, is proving to be a strong performer with 2017 private label sales, by dollar amount, now being 81% of total Termin-8r®product sales compared to 71% of total sales during the same period in 2016.

First time I've come across this document. It tells you all about DVOF and all their holdings. Spectra makes up 2.3% of their fund and they own common shares, debentures and preferred shares in both the holding company and subsidiary. This means that DVOF is very intertwined with Spectra Inc and must see it workout for the sake of their investors.

http://docmgt.dynamic.ca/documentdownload/getdocument/606

Page 8, 10, 11, 13 has information on Spectra. DVOF slightly increased their position in the subsidiary year over year.

2017-12-20 12:58 MT - News Release

Mr. Andrew Malion reports

SPECTRA INC. ANNOUNCES CFO PURCHASES CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED SHARES AND DEBENTURE OF SPECTRA PRODUCTS INC.

CABE Financial Corp. has acquired the royalty debenture and convertible preferred shares held by Dynamic Venture Opportunities Fund in Spectra Inc.'s partially owned subsidiary company, Spectra Products Inc. (SPI), as well as 1,315 common shares in SPI also owned by Dynamic Venture Opportunities Fund.

The president, and a shareholder, of CABE is Glen Campbell, a director, chief financial officer and chairman of both Spectra and SPI.

CABE has also agreed, after completion of the transaction, to amend the terms of the convertible preferred shares to waive the right of CABE to convert such convertible preferred shares to 1,000 common shares of SPI. This waiver ensures Spectra's 67.73-per-cent ownership percentage in SPI will not be reduced in the future as a result of the conversion right previously attached to convertible preferred shares.

CABE further agreed, after completion of the transaction, to extend the date upon which the convertible preferred shares could be called for redemption. Currently, this date is May 31, 2018. The retraction privileges will now be amended to a series of dates extending into 2020. These extended retraction dates will allow SPI to better manage its cash flow to enable it to meet these new redemption dates.

The transfer of ownership to CABE of the 1,315 common shares in SPI, the royalty debenture and the convertible preferred shares was approved by the board of directors of both Spectra and SPI.

Spectra, through its subsidiary, SPI, is the Toronto-based North American designer, manufacturer and distributor of Brake Safe, the visual brake stroke indicating system; Brake Inspector, the company's electronic in-cab air brake diagnostic system; and the Termin-8R line of anti-corrosion and extreme pressure lubricants.
