The outbreak of African Swine Fever combined with the strengthening Canadian Dollar resulted in the significant decrease in gross sales and profit.

As countries around the world are able to control COVID and African Swine Fever, we are encouraged that our careful cash management has enabled the company to retain its complete experienced workforce and be well positioned to meet demand for our specialized products.

“We earlier reported our expectations for first quarter sales to be short of the sales goals we would normally hope for, due to the production lag time for our specialized Dextran Sulphate product, and are looking forward to delivering current orders for that product in the second and third quarter of this fiscal year,” said George Usher, President and CEO. “Additionally,” he added, “we have continued to investigate new markets for our powdered products and Native Dextran for industrial uses. We are actively pursuing these new markets and collaborations in an effort to maintain profitability in fiscal 2022.”
