We have taken the first step in refocusing the Calyx business and adding a more tailored service offering.” commented Ken Young, EVP General Manager for Calyx Brands,

Bethany Walden, VP Sales for Calyx Brands noted “We are grateful to our supportive brand partners, our amazing sales team, and the hundreds of dispensary and delivery service customers we serve across the state for enabling us to achieve these new records.”

As reported in December, Calyx is implementing a number of steps to reduce costs while restructuring its offerings to better service current brands and attract major brand partners in 2020. This will include lower cost, fulfillment-only services, as well as an expanded menu of account acquisition and activation services.  Calyx, remains focused on being a leading distributor providing its brand partners with access to the worlds’ largest cannabis market.

Adam Szweras, CEO of Nutritional High commented – “As a result of the cost cutting and business reengineering work Ken and his team are doing, we believe Calyx will be able to achieve positive cash flow quickly, even with gross revenue temporarily reduced from prior periods, for the benefit of Nutritional High and its shareholders.”

Nutritional High is currently undertaking a strategic review of Calyx and the overall business of Nutritional High and expects to provide further details regarding strategic review in the coming weeks.

Furthermore, as announced on December 30, 2019, the Company issued shares to its unsecured debenture holders to pay interest due on December 31, 2019. The issuance price was incorrectly stated as being $0.045 where in fact, the issue price was $0.044 per share, for an aggregate issuance of 12,620,154 Common Shares. This share issuance resulted in the adjustment of the conversion price of the Company’s first secured debentures to $0.044 per share, and the Company will issue an additional 7,383,193 shares to the Company’s secured debenture holders to pay interest due to them on December 31, 2019.

“Getting your standard processing license and being fully compliant at a federal level is critical in Canada, and we were successful in getting that done. Now we’re getting ready to launch our Keef line of beverages within the next 45 days,” Leone said. 

As a young company, Leone said BevCanna has only started, but it took a four-pronged approach to make sure that it is a revenue-generating company prepared for the opening of many jurisdictions for CBD-based products.

“We are blessed that we have a beautiful infrastructure of our own, a state-of-the-art bottling facility with a capacity of almost 200 million bottles per annum and a strong balance sheet of $55 million. We are in a strong position to scale and grow this company.”

BevCanna has received a Standard Processing License from Health Canada and is now fully authorized to begin production at its full-service, high-capacity beverage manufacturing facility. The company will begin production of its white-label products, number one US cannabis beverage brand Keef and its in-house beverages through licensed Canadian retailers, positioning the company to fully capitalize on the burgeoning Canadian cannabis-infused beverage sector.
