Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - November 30, 2022) - Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI) ("Radient" or the "Company"), a commercial manufacturer of diverse, novel, and high-quality cannabis extracts and packaged products, reports its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Recent key highlights:
Received from Health Canada an amendment to the Company's Standard Processing License for the sale of dried and fresh cannabis and a sale for medical purposes licence, allowing the Company to offer a comprehensive suite of cannabis products;
Over $1.6 million of hydrocarbon products and pre-roll products have been shipped to customers to date since the Company's June 27, 2022 announcement of hydrocarbon commercial production and pre-roll sales growth. The Company currently has product purchase orders for approximately $0.8 million;
Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, was $1,351,082, which compares to $1,097,147 in the same period in the prior year;
Gross profit for the quarter ended September 30, 2022, was ($66,973), which compares to $223,029 in the same period in the prior year;
Operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, were $2,250,978, which compares to $1,715,448 in the same period in the prior year;
The Company has received a demand notice from its secured lender for approximately $10.5 million plus accrued costs and interest;
The Company is pursuing avenues to raise sufficient working capital and to restructure its debt to allow the Company to operate as a going concern but cannot assure it will be able to do so.
The TRX acquisition, together with the Company's exclusive licensing and extraction agreement with HighGrade Supply ("HighGrade"), has allowed the Company to produce what we believe to be some of the highest quality cannabis 2.0 products available in Canada, including distillates and isolates of products including THCa Crystalline, Delta 8 THC, CBG, CBN and hydrocarbon products such as High Cannabinoid Full Spectrum Extracts (HCFSE), High Terpene Full Spectrum Extracts (HTFSE), Crumble, Shatter, Live Resin, Budder, Terp Diamonds and more. These premium hydrocarbon products are sold through provincially licensed retailers in seven Canadian provinces and territories, for a custom hydrocarbon system designed for high throughput and purity. The HighGrade platform can process up to 1,100 kgs of biomass daily, with the potential for growth expansion.
Radient continues to implement its restructuring plan. The Company intends to focus on the Company's hydrocarbon concentrate product lines and may likely cease the production of cannabis pre-rolls products. Sales of hydrocarbon concentrates continue to improve, and the Company is receiving repeat-customer orders and positive product reviews.
The Company expects sales hydrocarbon products to continue but requires sufficient working capital to facilitate fulfilling product purchase orders and growth. The Company is pursuing avenues to raise working capital and restructure its debt to allow the Company to continue to operate as a going concern but cannot assure it will be able to do so.
Loan Facility Demand
As previously announced, Moskowitz Capital Mortgage Fund II Inc. issued a demand notice on August 26, 2022, to the Company for payment of approximately $10.5 million, plus accrued costs and additional interest to the date of payment pursuant to the terms of a secured loan facility (the "Facility") guaranteed by the Company.
