cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD), reported today that in its fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019, it generated total net sales of $5.7 million, up 84% over prior year results and sales for cbdMD products have grown 55% sequentially from the December 2018 quarter to March 2019 quarter.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Total net sales on a GAAP basis increased 84% to $5.7 million for the second quarter ended March 31, 2019 compared to the prior year period.
  • Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 62.4% for the second quarter ended March 31, 2019, up from 60.6% in the quarter ended December 31, 2018.
  • Working capital of $12.3 million at March 31, 2019, compared to working capital of $10.8 million at September 30, 2018. In addition, completed a secondary financing with net proceeds of approximately $12.6 million that closed on May 15, 2019.
  • Ecommerce sales platform generated over 70% of net sales.
  • 97%, or $30.9 million of the quarterly net loss of $31.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, attributed to the change in the value of the contingent liability related to acquisition of the cbdMD brand. The change in value was primarily related to the increase in the company’s stock price.

“Our goal is to build cbdMD into the most recognized cbd brand in the America. Our strong second quarter results place us in a great position to accomplish this goal. Our March quarter results put us on pace to meet or exceed the established revenue earn-out targets for the first year of operations for cbdMD, which was $20 million for 2019. In fact, our March quarter was 78% ahead of those earn-out projections. Furthermore, we are currently trending a full year ahead of the revenue earn-out projections, although there is no assurance that this trend will continue. Our Ecommerce sales platform remains strong and has accounted for over 70% of our total net sales. We are starting to track more direct retail sales through a growing list of wholesalers and retail outlets. On a store count basis, we have grown from under 600 doors in December 2018 to over 2,000 currently, and we continue to build momentum,” stated Martin A. Sumichrast, Chairman and CEO of cbdMD, Inc.

“Our strong financial position has enabled us to strengthen and grow valuable partnerships and sponsorships with world-class athletes that resonate with our customers,” continued Mr. Sumichrast. “One of those athletes, former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, joined cbdMD president Caryn Dunayer and me on the NYSE trading floor on May 1st for our official launch under our new ticker, YCBD. Also joining us was 2 Time Masters Champion and 12-time PGA Tour winner Bubba Watson, who has joined our all-star roster of partner athletes. We are excited to watch Bubba tee off today at the PGA Championship with cbdMD as his sponsor and wish him the best of luck. We are excited to be the first CBD company to partner with a PGA major champion.”
