Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA, OTC:PEMTF, FSE:1WZ:GR) (the “Company”) would like to thank all shareholders and investors for attending yesterday’s conference call. The main items addressed on the call were the revenue, profit margins and the short- and long-term growth plans of First Class CBD (“First Class”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
The conference call will be available for playback until February 29, 2020 by dialing 1-800-319-6413 (toll free Canada/US) or +1-604-638-9010 (international), quoting access code 4038.
To date, First Class’s revenue numbers for January 2020 up to January 27th, are US$2.1M compared to US$307,000 in January of 2019, this represents an increase of 680% over the same period last year. First Class plans to continue this significant growth in their U.S. operations over the balance of 2020 as well as enter the European market.
We have four key initiatives for the next twelve months that will yield results in the near term and also position us for long-term growth. First, we will be increasing our investment in customer acquisition through our existing marketing channels. Second, we will realize efficiencies with our supply chain to reduce product costs and increase our product development pipeline. Third, we will be working to increase customer retention in our subscription model. Last, but not least, we will initiate our strategic international expansion. Our focus to-date has been on the United States market.
Our short-term product development strategy is to offer product derivations within our existing catalog. These product derivations are based on two different factors. First, we will increase the efficacy of our products by increasing CBD levels in our oil drops, creams and other products. Second, we will add additional flavor or scent options to our entire product line.
Our long-term product development strategy is to develop new and interesting products based on market demand. New products under development or testing include the following; however, launch is still fully contingent on market demand:
- Products containing other cannabinoids outside of CBD (CBG and CGL)
- Expansion of our CBD gummy line
- On-the-go CBD muscle balm
- CBD Energy Shot
- CBD Tea
- Products combining CBD and melatonin
“The company is excited about the continued growth of First Class CBD. Their ability to generate sales and profits positions them to become a leader in the U.S. CBD space. The partnership with Unified provides an excellent platform for further expansion in the U.S. and future expansion into Europe,” stated Joel Shacker, CEO of the Company.
The Company cautions that figures for revenue generated from the sale of First Class CBD products have not been audited, and are based on calculations prepared by management of First Class. Actual results may differ from those reported in this release once these figures have been audited.
