Grapefruit USA, Inc. (OTCPINK “GPFT”) Reports 248% Revenue Growth Year over Year

Los Angeles/Desert Hot Springs, CA, April 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grapefruit USA, Inc., (“GPFT”, “Grapefruit” or the “Company”)) (OTCPink: GPFT) a California based cannabis company, is announcing today that in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 filed with the SEC last Friday, the Company reported net revenues of $451,196, an increase of 248% over revenues of $181,502 for the year ended December 31, 2018, in January of which it was first licensed by California and commenced cannabis manufacturing and distribution operations. This significant increase in revenues occurred despite the fact that the Company suspended its then current largest revenue producing operations, wholesale cannabis distribution, from April to September, in order to confirm that its cash management protocols were fully compliant with California reporting standards such that the Company’s financial statement could be audited. The Company restarted distribution operations in September and such operations are continuing to the present moment. The Company posted a net operating loss attributable to payments to legacy creditors of Imaging3, Inc. in connection with the reverse acquisition of Imaging3, (the “Acquisition”), abnormally large legal fees, accounting fees, audit fees and administrative and other costs incurred in connection with the Acquisition, all of which management believes will not be recurring. For a full analysis of the Company’s results of operations see the Company’s Form 10-K at pages 20 and 21.

With respect to Grapefruit’s 2019 annual report, Bradley J. Yourist, Grapefruit CEO, stated, “Now that the audit is complete, the amended 8-K in connection with the Acquisition has been filed, the 2018 and 2019 full year audits for GPFT are completed and the 2019 10-K has been filed, our securities compliance foundation is in place. Grapefruit is committed to staying in compliance on all levels and everyone on our team understands the importance of this hard work. We are conducting cannabis’ distribution operations and we have our cannabis extraction lab in operation. Work is progressing on our potentially disruptive patchless-patch which we intend to bring to market late in the second quarter. Now that the 2019 audit has been completed, we will be filing Amendment #2 to our S-1 registration statement this week and we expect that to be declared effective later this month at which point our investor is obligated to release additional funding to the Company. These cash infusions should fuel revenue expansion in the later stage of the second quarter and into the third and fourth quarters of 2020. We have brought on new Board member Mr. James Jordan who has already provided positive input and contributed to our networking efforts in connection with our distribution operations. We have executed our Data License Agreement with which is already displaying a Grapefruit banner which clicks through to Grapefruit’s website’s investor relations page. Other initiatives are in progress. Overall, 2019, although challenging with respect to the audit issue, was very positive. We look forward to a more successful 2020, which is already off to a superb start, as Grapefruit marches inexorably toward its goal of becoming a leading U.S. based fully integrated cannabis company.”
