RedHawk Reports Third Quarter Results

YOUNGSVILLE, LA / ACCESSWIRE / May 23, 2016 / RedHawk Holdings Corp. (IDNG) ("RedHawk" or the "Company") announced today its financial results for the three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2016.

For the three month period ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $653,811, $0.00 per share, on revenues of $9,750. This compares to a net loss from continuing operations of $20,883, $0.00 per share, on nil revenues for the same three-month period ended March 31, 2015. The increase in the net loss was primarily attributable to one-time professional fees incurred in connection with RedHawk's recent business acquisitions, the repurchase of approximately 18 million shares of the Company's common stock, the pursuit of various claims against its former legal and accounting professionals and the pursuit of claims against a former officer of the Company and certain private equity investors. During the third quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company also experienced an increase in its management fees over the comparable 2015 three-month period as it assembled its executive management team in the United States and the United Kingdom and incurred a one-time consultancy fee of $174,000 in connection with the non-compete agreement entered into with Scarlett Pharma LTD.

For the nine month period ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $788,924, $0.00 per share, on revenues of $19,700, as compared to a net loss of $124,163, $0.00 per share, on minimal revenues for the same nine month period ended March 31, 2015. As with the three-month period ended March 31, 2016, the increase in the net loss from continuing operations resulted primarily from higher one-time professional fees and higher management fees.

Commenting on the three and nine month results, the Company said it had completed the anticipated recapitalization of its balance sheet. It said it is now focused on restructuring its short term-debt in preparation for the commencement of revenue activity and further strategic expansion in its pharmaceutical and medical device business units. Revenues in the pharmaceutical and medical device business units are expected to accelerate at the beginning of the Company's new fiscal year.

Additionally, the Company said it expects to receive and complete the regulatory testing of the first Centri Controlled Entry System ("Centri") before its fiscal year end on June 30, 2016. The first unit will be delivered to, assembled and tested at the Company's newly established RedHawk Innovation Center at the Louisiana State University Innovation Park, a 200 plus acre university research park. After the Company receives regulatory approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, the Company said it expects to begin marketing Centri into the corrections and energy business sectors.
