VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chemesis International Inc. (CSE: CSI) (OTC: CADMF) (FRA:CWAA) (the “Company” or “Chemesis”), announces unaudited fiscal Q2 revenues for the period ending December 31, 2018 of $2,820,105 CDN, a 47% increase from the previous quarter.
In its second quarter of operations, the Company generated revenues through its state compliant manufacturing, packaging, and distribution facility Desert Zen. With current distribution throughout Southern California, the Company continues to expand its reach within the legal dispensary network. The successful launch of the Jay & Silent Bob brand has generated significant demand which has continued into fiscal Q3.
Chemesis closed the acquisition of Natural Ventures in fiscal Q2 and has been building out its operations on the island to serve increasing customer demand. The Company subsequently announced it will be cultivating and manufacturing CBD products for the Puerto Rican medical cannabis market in the fiscal year.
Edgar Montero, CEO of Chemesis stated, “The Company is moving forward in every aspect of its business plan and we are looking forward to the expansion of our assets. Chemesis recently announced a $4 million annual purchase order, which we believe to be the start of high demand, as consumers and businesses continue to recognize our high-quality cultivation, and manufacturing processes.”
Subsequent to the quarter end, Chemesis closed the acquisition of La Finca Interacviva-Arachna Med on January 9th, 2019. The Company anticipates its first harvest and commencing construction of its GMP certified extraction facility, in the spring of 2019. Furthermore, the acquisition of La Finca brought the company in excess of CDN $2,000,000 in working capital.
Additionally, the Company’s industrial scale extraction facility in California, has obtained all necessary licensing and has proceeded with commercialization. The Company looks forward to scaling up in the coming months to meet increasing demand in the legal California cannabis market.
With the current financing completed of CDN $2,760,000 and up to $10,000,000 in equity facility as of today’s announcement, Chemesis is in a strong cash position to meet its near-term cash commitments to ensure expansion build out and revenue growth. The additional equity facility gives Chemesis access to a total of CDN $34,250,000 in draw down equity facilities between Alumina Partners Inc. and Global Emerging Markets.
The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial Statements and MD&A for the three months ended December 31, 2018 will be filed on SEDAR and available at www.sedar.com.
