DELRAY BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 19, 2020 / Exactus, Inc. (OTCQB:EXDI) (the “Company”) a leading supplier of hemp-derived ingredients (CBD/CBG) and feminized hemp genetics, reported its financial results for the third quarter 2020.
During the third quarter of 2020, and through a time of pandemic, Exactus continued to generate year over year revenue growth up from $60,153 in the third quarter of 2019 to $678,050 in the third quarter of 2020, producing a gross profit of $114,529 for the quarter ended September 30 2020.
As the company continues to grow its digital sales infrastructure, it has invested into its back end systems to strengthen the foundation of the global sales platform that supports the company’s objectives for long term growth and scalability including the launch of the Exactus Alibaba storefront. The sector is maturing and taking a turn for the positive. The industry as a whole has experienced a major influx of investment into the space resulting in a recent departure of overleveraged companies. The company is pleased to see that consumer demand is growing, resulting in new opportunities for Exactus including distressed assets and underserved markets.
The company is proud to announce its first profitable quarter. Exactus achieved this through the reduction of operational expenses and liabilities, continued build out of marginable revenue, and development of new distribution channels including outsourced logistics and automation of the sales processes for scalable revenue growth.
Emiliano Aloi, Interim CEO of Exactus stated, “We see renewed energy in the space, from investors to consumer markets. Our processes are streamlined from outreach all the way to fulfillment. With these new tools in place, our team can scale up sales and plug in new skus in a much faster, cost efficient, and organized manner. We have a clear direction, expanding supply chain, and growing sales. We look forward to ending the year strong, and on track with our M&A growth strategy as we make Exactus healthier, leaner, and more profitable.”
Third Quarter 2020 Financial Summary
Total net revenue for the third quarter 2020 was $678,050 versus $60,153 in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to a new customer who represented approximately 24% of the Company’s net sales in the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Net loss for the quarter was -$3,056,718 versus -$2,025,768 million in the prior year. The net loss for the third quarter 2020 was due, primarily, to a non-cash impairment of intangible assets related to farm leases due to management’s intent of not pursuing further farm operations in Oregon.
