Vext Science Inc (OTCMKTS: VEXTF) Declares Record 2Q 2021 Results With Revenue of $9.4 Million

Published

on

Vext Science Inc (OTCMKTS: VEXTF) recently announced its financial results for 2Q 2021. The group reported a record revenue of $9.4 million. Throwing light on other numbers, the company announced adjusted EBITDA of $3.4 million, fully diluted EPS stands at $0.01 while the operating cash flow is $4.5 million. These are the record financial results of the group. 

CEO comments that consistent efforts delivered record results

Crediting the team at Arizona for their outstanding performance at the dispensary level, Eric Offenberger, CEO of Vext Science Inc, stated that the persistent demand for the Vapen brand from third-party dispensaries from across the state contributed to a spike in sales. The effort has resulted in helping the company earn profit besides increasing the operating cash flow. In terms of numbers, expectations are pinned high on the Arizona market as it is expected to generate $3 billion in annual sales by 2025. Against this backdrop, the CEO informed that the company positioned itself to achieve the targeted sales number. 

Alongside registering profit through an increase in sales, the group is also expanding its manufacturing capability. The CEO announced that the company sealed a purchase deal of a 72,000 square foot facility, reportedly located in Eloy. When this comes online in early 2022, as expected, the indoor cultivation capacity of the group will nearly triple. 

Commenting on another milestone achieved in Arizona, Offenberger informed that Vext Science Inc agreed to produce and distribute MAJOR cannabis-infused beverages and Wynk THC seltzers in Arizona in July. Moving the focus away from Arizona, the CEO informed that the group had made remarkable progress in Ohio, as the Vapen brand has many takers in the market. Expectations are pinned high in both regions. The corporate house expects growth in the following 12 months, and this period is also a time when the company is hoping to expand its presence in many states. 

Other milestones achieved by Vext Science Inc

The group announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SōRSE Technology Corp. to exclusively produce and sell SōRSE’s MAJOR cannabis-infused beverages in Arizona. In July this year, the corporate house announced that it would establish its retail presence in Ohio. In the same month, the US-based Cannabis THC manufacturing company announced that it had joined hands with Agtech PA LLC. In Arizona, the partnership allows Vext Science Inc to exclusively produce and sell Wynk THC seltzers (“Wynk”).
