NIAGARA, Ontario, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- extractX Ltd. (“extractX” or the “Company”), today announced financial results for its subsidiary extractX Incorporated (“EXI”) as at and for the year ended June 30, 2021. All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.
"At this early stage in the Company, we are very excited to be successfully advancing our strategy to deploy mobile extraction labs on a global scale, and are on a near-term path to profitability,” said Albert Iannantuono, CEO of extractX. “Our mobile labs, built to EU-GMP standards, are the right solution for our extraction partners as they provide a turn-key extraction solution that is scalable and low risk, providing speed-to-market for our partner’s products.”
2021 Operational Highlights
During the year ended June 30, 2021 and following the successful operation and proof-of-concept of the prototype mobile lab (v1.0), the Company accelerated its sales and marketing efforts on a global scale. Targeted sales and marketing programs include digital media, discussion papers, webcasts, social media, and industry advertising that reach audiences globally.
As a result of these focused sales and marketing activities, during the year ended June 30, 2021, the Company entered into two commercial contracts for the provision of extractX’s next generation mobile extraction labs (v2.0).
The first contract is for the provision and operation of a mobile extraction lab to a client partner in Franklin, Kentucky. The lab was successfully shipped in March 2021, and the extractX installation team completed the installation and commissioning of the lab within 4 weeks. The lab was operational shortly thereafter, and successfully processing biomass to distillate. During the initial phase of this three year contract the mobile lab generated $241,323 of revenue for the year ended June 30, 2021. Through the process, the extractX team identified and implemented additional productivity upgrades and operational changes as part of the Company’s continuous improvement program.
The second contract is for the provision of a mobile lab to a client partner in Chiang Mai, Thailand for a three year contract to process CBD from hemp. In mid-July 2021 the mobile lab was shipped from the manufacturing facility in Winnipeg and arrived in Chiang Mai on September 18, 2021. Using the Company’s Installation & Commissioning Guide, as well as support from the extractX team, the team in Thailand were able to get the lab operational within the expected timeframe.
With the Company’s mobile lab v2.0 deployed and operational in two locations, the Company is now developing mobile lab v3.0, which is expected to provide a substantial increase in biomass throughput over the previous v1.0 and v2.0 mobile labs. This increase in throughput is expected to be accomplished using the same footprint as the v2.0 lab.
The Company is also currently designing an approved v2.0 lab to meet EU GMP regulations and standards, which will enable extractX to provide pharmaceutical-grade mobile labs for the pharmaceutical sector. This will be the production model and standard as the Company moves forward. These initiatives were supported in part through a 50% cost sharing grant under the Agricultural Clean Technology Program of the Canadian Government.
The Company’s sales and marketing programs continue to generate qualified leads from around the globe and management is in various stages of discussion and contract negotiations with several parties.
