Eric Rice, Chief Executive Officer of Quanta commented, "We're extremely happy with the efforts of our team here at Quanta during the challenging conditions brought on by the global pandemic of COVID-19. While order rates for our products, particularly at the wholesale level, softened towards the end of the quarter due to "shelter in place" and other COVID-19 related demand impact, we saw excellent progress in the quarter on a number of fronts, and are seeing sales activity gradually increase again. We added senior level, accomplished talent to the team, advanced our research on non-CBD-based products, continued to forge partnerships to validate and bring our technology to the market, and took steps to strengthen our balance sheet with new capital."
"The massive increase in ATP production by the human body that our polarized Vitamin A (Retinal) promotes when applied to human skin, as we announced in May, has captured the attention of a number of large consumer-brands and distributors. We are moving forward with the launch of a variety of Non-CBD cosmetic and health care products such as after-sun and healthy skin and body lotions, anti-aging facial creams, and protective and soothing lip balms. Additional testing and ingredients are planned for the remainder of the year, and we're looking forward to a year of growth, both in on-line (direct-to-consumer) sales and through current and new distribution partnerships."
