Each of the terms the "Company" and "Worksport" as used herein refers collectively to Worksport Ltd. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, unless otherwise stated.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the 2020 Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in Part I, Item 1 of this Form 10-Q.

COVID-19

The Company believes that the COVID- 19 pandemic has had certain impacts on its business, but management does not believe there has been a material long-term impact from the effects of the pandemic on the Company's business and operations, results of operations, financial condition, cash flows, liquidity or capital and financial resources.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, aspects of the Company's business continued to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with respect to its manufacturing practices and sales. Combined with decreased consumer confidence, Management expects the Company to generate less revenues than in previous periods.

The full extent of the future impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operational and financial performance is currently uncertain and will depend on many factors outside the Company's control, including, without limitation, the timing, extent, trajectory and duration of the pandemic; the availability, distribution and effectiveness of vaccines; the imposition of protective public safety measures; and the impact of the pandemic on the global economy and demand for consumer products.
