PAGE 7 Corporate Presentation Projected Quantum Hardware Landscape • Quickly approaching limits of Moore’s law due to quantum effects at increasingly smaller transistor sizes • Well - established driver of computing performance • General Purpose, can be readily used for most applications and problems • Incapable of solving certain types of problems that exhibit large variable expansion/dimensionality Current Generation GPU/CPU • A viable near - term semiconductor ”bridge” to solving problems well suited for quantum annealers and Gate - model computers • Capable of quickly solving combinatorial optimization problems difficult for CPU/GPUs • Near - term performance benefit does not require large cooling equipment and active maintenance Next - gen “Bridge” Digital Annealers • Can quickly approach optimal or very - near optimal answers for combinatorial optimization problems • Validated to be effective for a large selection of problems • Technological advances required to get quantum annealers to be real - world problem ready • Progress is accelerating as awareness around quantum computing builds True Transition Quantum Annealers • “True” Quantum Computers capable of executing algorithms such as Shor’s (prime factorization) and Grover’s (search) • Extremely sensitive to noise, decoherence is a significant problem • Profound breakthroughs must be made to enable the development of robust real - world capable quantum computers True Quantum (Gate - Model) +5 - 7 years +10 years Current

 

 

PAGE 8 Corporate Presentation Quantum Hardware Continued • The technology underlying quantum and quantum - inspired hardware architectures determines the time to maturity. • As “quantum - ness” increases, so does R&D cost and time - to - market. • A direct consequence is that differentiated performance from quantum computing will emerge in a step like fashion as technological bottlenecks are broken. • Notably, differentiated performance from digital annealers may be on the cusp.

 

 

PAGE 9 Corporate Presentation Near Term Quantum Opportunity: Optimization • Although classical computers utilizing CPUs and GPUs can solve some optimization problems, they struggle with large variable expansion and dimensionality, which has bottlenecked the value that can be unlocked from big data. • Near - term quantum - inspired hardware such as digital annealers and quantum annealers have been recognized for their ability to rapidly solve combinatorial optimization problems. • Optimization problems are omnipresent across research and industry and represents a tremendous near - term opportunity. • We believe the strength of digital annealers and quantum annealers can be demonstrated today on real - world problems such as portfolio optimization.

 

 

PAGE 10 Corporate Presentation Business Model • We believe application development that can leverage quantum hardware as soon as it can demonstrate differentiated performance is a less - capital intensive and faster way of commercializing quantum computing. • Through our robust “one and done" middleware stack, we intend in delivering true quantum - enabled applications capable of seamlessly transitioning to the latest and greatest real - world ready quantum hardware. • We believe there is significant value in this “hardware - agnostic” approach from both a development standpoint and to our end - users, eliminating the risk of wasted infrastructure spend on obsolete hardware.

 

 

PAGE 11 Corporate Presentation The First True Quantum - Enabled Application Ecosystem • Hardware obsolescence is a salient concern for many organizations, and rapid quantum development only magnifies the risk of obsolescence. • Our proprietary middleware stack, the “One and Done” Ecosystem, will leverage bleeding edge hardware advances to power our end - user applications. • Our middleware stack enables enhanced performance of the underlying hardware by optimizing the functions in our applications to match the hardware. Our ecosystem intends to: • eliminate IT migration issues; • eliminate the need for recalibration of complicated models to match new hardware; and • ensure our users’ advantage can be maintained in a competitive landscape.

 

 

PAGE 12 Corporate Presentation Initial Opportunity – Financial Optimization • Computational optimization is critical in Finance, and is responsible for mission critical tasks such as risk management, investment selection, and derivatives creation. • Effective adoption of advances enabled by emerging quantum - hardware can quickly translate into a distinct competitive advantage in this fast - paced landscape. • Increased optimization capabilities demonstrated by near - term quantum hardware can solve larger problems faster, leading to unprecedented insight for the end - user. • We intend on launching our first application, powered by our middleware stack, for use in financial optimization in Q3 2019. 10,000 Hedge Funds Globally $80 trillion Global Assets Under Management $1 Billion + Market Opportunity 1 – Hedge Fund Research report: «HFR Global Hedge Fund Industry Report», (First Quarter 2019) 2 - Reuters: «Global assets under management hit all - time high above $80 trillion», (October 2017 )

 

 

PAGE 13 Corporate Presentation Growth Areas We believe the following areas represent exciting growth opportunities for QCI. Given enough, but inconclusive data, can we predict what disease a patient is at risk for? Predictive Health Analytics How much money could businesses save from optimal processes? Logistics Can faster optimization enable responses to threats in real - time? Anomaly Detection How much waste would be eliminated from optimal processes? Operations
