Vancouver, B.C. — July 08, 2020 — Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE: NGW) (OTCQX: NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave”, “NGW” or the “Company”) as a follow up to our last press release on June 4, 2020, the Company is pleased to confirm the following operational and financial milestones:
- In the months of March, April, May and June 2020, the Company operated with positive cash flow, and achieved both positive EBITDA and positive Net Income.*
- In the months of April, May and June 2020, the Company surpassed US$1Million of revenues in each month and as a result, exceeded US$3Million in revenues for Q2 2020.* The total costs incurred to generate this revenue was approximately US$1.8Million.
Next Green Wave is continuing to advance the completion of our extraction facility (the “Facility C”) working with the state utility company and the Coalinga engineering division. We are nearing the final stages of both licensing and construction related to Facility C and are working towards this being fully operational in late Q3 2020.
As part of the growing demand for Next Green Wave premium flower, the company has launched a new lineup of products under the NGW brand and continuing to conduct R&D on several edible and vape cartridge formulations for future release.
The Next Green Wave branded flower and concentrates can be found in premium dispensaries in cities across California including San Diego, Los Angeles and Oakland. The new flower was released first locally in Coalinga at Have A Heart and quickly expanded through our other retail partners and distributors, including some of Los Angeles most well-known and respected dispensaries like DTPG and Dr. Greenthumb.
“Considering the start-up challenges and obstacles this Company has had to overcome over the last few years we are extremely proud to announce the accomplishments above. Now that we have set baselines for production and revenue over the last two quarters, our objectives are threefold. First, continue to optimize operations and improve production metrics to maximize overall flower output at our production facility. Second, continue to grow revenue by increasing branded product sales volume and increasing downline product sales such as extracts, pre-rolls, vape cartridges and edibles. Finally, get our extraction facility online this year which will add revenue through tolling and decrease internal production costs for downline products.”
“The entire NGW team has been working tirelessly to meet our continued growing customer’s demand as we are sold out of product week over week. The rapid expansion into retail is in full bloom across California including Oakland, Los Angeles, San Joaquin Valley and San Diego areas.” stated Mike Jennings, CEO.
On June 07, 2020, the Company granted 3,000,000 stock options under its Stock Option Plan, exercisable at a price of CDN$0.15 per share for two directors. The stock options are five-year options which will vest 25% every six months for a period of two years.
