DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2014 / CannLabs, Inc. (OTCQB: CANL), a leader in cannabis testing, innovation and consultation, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
"During this quarter, we successfully scaled operations to support the needs of growers, producers and retailers in response to the first round of state government regulations in Colorado," said Mark Mirken, Chief Executive Officer of CannLabs. "As more regulations take effect and more state markets open, CannLabs is poised to continue to provide a range of testing and consulting services aimed to optimize our clients’ product development, and our commitment to public health and safety." Mirken added "CannLabs has a library of proprietary testing data, accumulated over the last four years, which we will leverage into intellectual property for the creation of unique product solutions to our ever expanding client base."
For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported revenues of $270,220 and $382,493, respectively. The Company’s increased sales revenue during these periods was due to a rise in demand for services by clients complying with the state of Colorado’s mandated testing requirements for certain recreational cannabis products which went into effect on May 1, 2014. The net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was $368,244 and $470,351, respectively. This was due to increase in overhead and related expenses as the Company prepares for more comprehensive mandated testing of all recreational marijuana products sold in Colorado. The Company also incurred expenses associated with its planned expansion into the Connecticut market.
In the coming months, CannLabs anticipates further growth as the industry prepares for the increased Colorado state regulatory mandates expected on October 1, 2014. In addition, the Company has signed exclusive agreements with two major growers in the state of Connecticut as part of its expansion into that market.
