PURA is continuing with its efforts reported last week to begin restocking inventory of its EVERx CBD Sports Water. PURA enjoyed sustained sales through the March and April shutdowns and immediately redistributed its current inventory to support demand once the economy in Texas reopened in May. PURA reported $2.7 million in annual sales last year and $800,000 in the first quarter of 2020. To insure against the possibility of another potential shutdown, in part or whole, PURA is rushing to complete another production run of EVERx.
Resilience is management's priority during the COVID-19 Pandemic. That means taking vigilant measures to protect the company's EVERx business. At the moment, that translates into making sure PURA has adequate inventory to maintain sales.
In the long-term, rapid growth remains a vital component of PURA's long-term success. The acquisition campaign launched in January this year continues unhampered and possibly even enhanced by the prevailing COVID-19 impacted economic conditions. Forbes reports that vertically integrated hemp and CBD companies capitalized under $6 million are at risk of not surviving the economic conditions resulting from COVID-19. The challenges facing such companies creates a target rich acquisition market. PURA's horizontal strategy to expand across the CBD market from beverages, to edibles and topicals gives PURA a wider footprint and corresponding long-term stability from which to maintain sustainability and fuel rapid growth.
PURA has executed three acquisitions so far this year. PURA has acquired a CBD infused confections business, a CBD pet products business, and a CBD sun care business. Last week, PURA announced entering into discussions with a CBD sexual wellness company.
PURA management continues to monitor the potential impact of the overall Coronavirus crisis to PURA's operations. To date, PURA's outlook remains sustainable with even some optimism that certain Coronavirus impacts could be beneficial.
