    • Commercial launch expected to begin in the summer of 2019, leveraging Vitalibis’ proprietary ambassador program and Bruce Lee’s 25 million followers on social media.

  • Appointed baseball legend Dusty Baker to the Company’s Advisory Board and as a Founding Ambassador to educate and spread awareness of Vitalibis’ full-spectrum phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil products in the sports world.

  • Announced that the Company’s proprietary Software as a Service offering underlying its Ambassador program is now available for licensing, offering eCommerce brands the ability to execute robust influencer programs for improved engagement and data management.

Management Commentary

“The first quarter of 2019 was highlighted by our continued foundation building ahead of the launch of our full-spectrum hemp oil in collaboration with Bruce Lee Beverage and the initiation of significant marketing initiatives,” said Steve Raack, Chief Executive Officer of Vitalibis. “We continued to develop our product portfolio, adding both the Vitalibis Signature 600 CBD hemp oil and the Vitalibis Soothing Body Cream with naturally occurring CBD, while preparing our product development pipeline for the next generation of products – such as our incredible skincare product line, which we plan on launching in the second half of 2019.

“In addition to our developments on the product front, we continued to build brand awareness and add significant social influencers to our Ambassador platform, ranging from Dusty Baker, an MLB legend, to Bruce Lee Beverages and countless other smaller influencers as part of our macro-micro and nano-influencer strategy,” continued Raack.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for Vitalibis – we believe that 2019 will be a pivotal year for the Company, as the groundwork we’ve put in place over the last 18 months comes to fruition. We are well positioned as a thought leader in the space, offering differentiated products that are both safer than and fundamentally superior to competing products in the CBD market. I look forward to executing upon our immense potential and creating long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded Raack.

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

  • Realized first commercial revenue in the first quarter of 2019, generating $140 thousand in revenue, primarily derived from the soft-launch of several Vitalibis products, as compared to no revenues in the first quarter of 2018.

  • Gross profit in the first quarter of 2019 was $51 thousand, representing a 37% gross profit margin, primarily driven by a sales mix weighted towards lower-margin CBD powder sales. The company expects gross margins to steadily improve over time as consumer products, which carry an approximate 80% gross margin profile, become an increasingly large portion of the sales mix.

  • Cash used in operations in the first quarter of 2019 totaled $286 thousand as a result of the Company’s capital-light, low-overhead operating model.

  • Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2019 were $60 thousand compared to $171 thousand as of December 31, 2018. Subsequent to the closing of the first quarter of 2019, the Company raised $200 thousand via a convertible debenture.
