The scalability of the Applyflow Platform means there are minimal incremental COGS and limited friction for new sales and the subsequent onboarding process. Q1 FY22 closed with a strong pipeline for conversion into new sales in Q2 FY 22 . Subsequent to the close of the quarter, Applyflow has entered into agreements with additional recruitment firms, including Frontline Recruitment Group. Steve Butler, CEO of Applyflow, said “ We’re very pleased to have retained the majority of our customers onto longer - term contracts , giving both our customers and our business certainty over the medium to long term.” “I’m excited to see momentum b uild as we shift focus to new customer acquisition and onboard ing new talent to accelerate sales.” Product development Following the launch of the Applyflow Platform, development capacity has existed within Applyflow which has permitted the further devel opment of Applypay to occur concurrently with the continuing development of the Applyflow Platform. Applyflow thus achieved rapid progress in the development of Applypay through Q1 FY22 without a significant change in the cost structure. Applypay opportunity Applypay is the Company’s instalment - based finance solution for recruitment invoices. Applypay’s initial focus is on servicing the Australian recruitment market. I t’s a market with large potential for Applypay with IBIS World estimating that the Australian Employment Placement and Recruitment Services industry has a market size of approximately $15 billion. 1 1 https://www.ibisworld.com/au/industry/employment - placement - recruitment - services/569/ __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Applyflow Ltd .

These relationships provide a basis for Applypay to make swift inroads in the industry; recruiters issue invoices and Applypay’s achievement of market share will rely on having recruiters onside to propose a w in - win financing solution to their clients. Subsequent to the close of the quarter, Applyflow announced a strategic partnership with Hudson Global Resources (Aust) Pty Ltd for the roll - out of the Applypay solution for Hudson’s recruiter invoices, together with joint development and marketing initiatives for Applypay.

Applypay is uniquely placed to succeed with Applyflow’s significant B oard and management experience in the consumer and commercial instalment - based payment industry. Applyflow is primed to support the launch of Applypay with the capacity to: - fund initial transactions on its balance sheet – although Applyflow is in ongoing discussions with debt providers; - invest in marketing linked to its adoption by Hudson; and - invest in a lean team to lead the successful launch of an innovative payments solution. Applyflow expects Applypay to develop to launch in late 2021 . Steve Butler, CEO of Applyflow, said “With the commitment from Hudson, we’ve validated Applypay’s product fit and solidified a very exciting path to underpin the successful launch of Applypay. ” “ Our strong relationships with some of the largest recruitment agencies in the world and over 250 existing clients present a unique advantage to accelerate the adoption of Applypay in a huge market in need of modern financing solution s.” __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Applyflow Ltd .
