FluroTech Ltd. (TSXV:TEST), (“FluroTech” or the “Company”), today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Highlights


  • Finalized development and branding of CompleTest™, the Company’s flagship quality control cannabis testing device;
  • Have completed construction of the CompleTest outer mold;
  • Commenced construction of the first 50 CompleTest units;
  • Filed initial patents for Completest;
  • Completed heavy metal test kits, scope and training module, allowing users of the CompleTest™ to identify and accurately measure lead, cadmium and mercury in their cannabis products up to the parts per billion;
  • Successfully completed preliminary development for the Company’s seed-to-sale tracking solution which allows labeling of cannabis oil with pharmaceutical grade biomarker technology and identifying it with the CompleTest™;
  • Improved future gross margins through the buyback of a 1% royalty on revenue;
  • Strengthened the bandwidth and core competency of the Operations and Research and Development teams with new personnel; and
  • Capitalized the Company with $8.1 million in equity financings Q1 and completed a public listing on the TSX Venture Exchange.

 

Outlook for Remainder of 2018

  • Launch field testing of CompleTest™ device and heavy metal and cannabinoid test kits with several licensed producers;
  • Complete the testing of the biomarker technology on cannabis plants;
  • Complete THCa and CBDa scopes, test kits, training modules and third-party validation early September;
  • Transition from a development company to commercialization with the CompleTest™ device and test kits with initial sales expected in Q4;
  • Expansion of the technical and sales teams to provide scalability;
  • Complete development of the external subject testing devices for governments, law enforcement, insurers and employers; and
  • Achieve OTCQB listing to allow US investors to purchase FluroTech common shares.
  • FluroTech’s relatively fast pace of development has positioned the Company to focus on achieving sales in 2018. The technology and methodology in the CompleTest™ device and test kits is substantially the same as what is required for the external subject testing devices and the THC, cocaine and methamphetamine test kits which de-risks their development time and likely reduces the time to market.

“Our Business Plan has been, and continues to be, a well-defined progression allowing us to walk before we run. As evidenced by our results, we are on track with that plan. The development team continues to deliver systematic progress and the production and sales departments are slightly ahead of schedule for the launch of commercial sales at the end of October. We feel very comfortable with our positioning on the financial side of the business and will continue to progress on the technological aspects in a manner consistent with our position as a leader in this market space,” said Danny Dalla-Longa, Chief Executive Officer of FluroTech.
