Toronto, Ontario, Canada, May 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yooma Wellness Inc. ("Yooma" or the "Company") (CSE: YOOM, AQSE:YOOM), a Toronto-based vertically-integrated global wellness platform that develops and markets a portfolio of wellness brands, today released its interim financial statements (the "Financial Statements") for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022 (the "Reporting Period").   A summary of Yooma’s financial highlights during the Reporting Period are set out below and a summary of recent operational highlights are included in the Company’s press release dated May 17, 2022. More detailed information is contained in the Financial Statements and related Management Discussion and Analysis, which are available on Yooma's SEDAR page at www.sedar.com.

Lorne Abony, Chairman at Yooma, commented: “Markets continue to be difficult, and we are working diligently with our strategic adviser, Canaccord Genuity Corp., to complete a strategic review of potential options for the Company, which may include a sale of assets or further M&A by the Company, if financing can be secured on acceptable terms. We look forward to providing an update once our review is complete.”

Jordan Greenberg, CEO at Yooma, added: “A number of Yooma’s key acquisitions from 2021 are performing well, including Vitality CBD in Europe and Vertex Co., Ltd. in Japan. Revenues and gross profit have both significantly increased, year-over-year, and we expect to start seeing returns on our efforts to rationalize and streamline Yooma’s global platform in the near-term.”

Selected Financial Highlights (Q1 2022)

During the Reporting Period, the Company generated revenues of US$3.2 million, but experienced comprehensive losses of US$3.1 million, reflecting, among other things, cost of sales of US$2.4 million and expenses of US$3.7 million. The significant year-over-year increase in revenues, cost of sales and expenses reflects the six significant acquisitions completed by Yooma in 2021, which have expanded Yooma’s global platform into Europe, Japan and the United States.
