Toronto, Ontario – August 2, 2022 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Red Light Holland Corp. (CSE: TRIP) (FSE: 4YX) (OTC Pink: TRUFF) (“Red Light Holland” or the “Company”), an Ontario-based corporation engaged in the production, growth, and sale of functional mushrooms and mushroom home grow kits in North America, and a premium brand of psilocybin truffles to the legal, recreational market within the Netherlands, in compliance with all applicable laws, announces that it has completed the process of filing its audited annual financial statements and management discussion & analysis for the financial years ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.
“During our fiscal 2022 year we closed on four important acquisitions (Radix Motion, Happy Caps, AEM Farms and Mera Life Sciences) that have reshaped our current position and roadmap ahead. Through these acquisitions we have added to our team, developed strong partnerships and have acquired tangible assets, in the form of farm production facilities. I am pleased to announce for fiscal 2022 our revenue was over $2.3 million and gross profit over $600 thousand. We realized growth in both the Netherlands and Canada through SR Wholesale and Happy Caps, as increased revenue and gross profit remains our core focus. We are on-track with the strong foundation that we are building, and we are excited about future revenue generation with AEM New Brunswick, which is now in early-stage production, AEM Peterborough, now in early-stage planning, current and future CPG expansion, and other potential strategic acquisitive opportunities,” said Todd Shapiro, Red Light Holland CEO and Director. “Most recently we are also very excited to work with MISTERCAP LLC with marketing advisory services from the one and only Wiz Khalifa. As well, we have now officially closed our acquisitions of two SmartShops in Oss and Utrecht, the Netherlands. We are confident in our fully vertically integrated strategy and we cannot wait to start rebranding our wholly owned SmartShops to ‘Wellness World’ in the coming months.”
Shapiro added: “Our mission remains: to provide affordable and equitable adult access to naturally occurring psilocybin via technology, education, information and responsible use. As you know, I love marketing and brand building; we will push even harder in the near future with impactful marketing strategies with the continued goal of Red Light Holland being the leader in the Rec and Tech psychedelic sector. We will provide updates shortly regarding Scarlette Lillie Science and Innovation (MERA) in St. Vincent, Wisdom Truffle pre-sales, and we continue to identify and analyze near term acquisition transactions while remaining cautious with our spending habits. I’m very proud of our energetic and passionate Red Light Holland team as we keep delivering, while carefully putting the pieces of this big beautiful psychedelic puzzle together. I am grateful for our shareholders’ continued support. Feel free to contact me anytime with the email provided below.”
With regards to the strength of the current financial position, David Ascott, Red Light Holland Chief Financial Officer, added “Our financial position and liquidity remains strong, and the Company currently has sufficient capital to fund its ongoing business development and future growth and expansion plans for the foreseeable future.
