ScreenPro Security Inc. (CSE: SCRN) (OTCQB: SCRSF) ("ScreenPro" or the "Company") is pleased to report a significant increase in the Covid-19 testing numbers this year, which attributes to the Company's stronger cash position. Covid testing remains in high demand for the film and production industry. Due to the nature of the work environment, staff members are often operating in contained areas and in close proximity. With various highly contagious variants, such as Omicron and the numbers of infections increasing, we foresee more contracts throughout 2022.
The Company also faces a rise in demand for testing in the travel and tourism industry along with its concierge (home/office visit) services. In addition to the news release on March 24th, 2022, the Company has received three additional testing contracts in television and production dated as of April 8, 2022, resulting in a total of 21 new productions to date for Q1 of FY22.
Recent testing numbers are as follows:
- December 2021 resulted in a total of 14,202 Covid-19 tests
- January 2022 resulted in a total of 19,446 Covid-19 tests
- February 2022 resulted in a total of 23,655 Covid-19 tests
- March 2022 resulted in a total of 25,333 Covid-19 tests
"As Canada faces a spike in Covid-19 cases and a possible sixth wave, the Company continues to build momentum with the Covid testing business for the film and production industry. We have also increased our testing services in the travel industry to meet potential demand as more and more people are travelling internationally," said Michael Yeung, Chairman of the Company.
"The film industry is still feeling the strain of the pandemic and have to continuously turn to Covid testing to keep individuals safe whilst on set. As the need for Covid testing expands, and as more people travel, we are confident that our testing continues to yield great revenue and profitability. We also anticipate securing more contracts which will attribute to higher revenue and profit for our shareholders," said Lena Kozovski, CEO of the Company.
