HOUSTON, May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Indoor Harvest Corp (“Indoor Harvest” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:INQD) is pleased to announce first quarter results for 2018, under new management after the completion of the Company’s change in focus in 2017 toward becoming a developer of personalized cannabis medicines and a provider of advanced cultivation methods and processes to the cannabis industry.

Financial Results Summary

A summary of the financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017, is as follows:

  • 88% reduction in net loss from $1,056,253 to $127,216.
  • 62% reduction in total operating expenses from $726,828 to $272,603.
  • 68% decrease in general and administrative expenses from $622,403 to $198,190.
  • 21% reduction in professional fees from $90,547 to $71,375.
  • 36% reduction in total liabilities from $1,132,644 to $727,780.
  • 41% reduction in stockholders deficit from ($999,624) to ($594,722).

Annette Knebel, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, stated, “As can be seen by first quarter results, we have made great strides in reducing our overall operating expenses. There were however substantial expenses in the first quarter of 2017 related to the acquisition of Alamo CBD and its application to produce cannabis in Texas. We will continue to evaluate ways to cut costs and reduce operations where we can.”

In August 2017, the Company completed a reverse triangular merger with Alamo CBD, exchanging 7,584,008 shares of Indoor Harvest’s common stock, thus making Alamo CBD a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Additionally, we ceased actively supporting business development of vertical farms for produce production.

Alamo CBD is a pending applicant to produce cannabis in Texas, placing 16th out of 43 applicants, under the Texas Compassionate Use Program. So far three applicants have been awarded approvals to produce cannabis under the program. The Company is a member of and is working with the Medical Cannabis Association of Texas and expects both lobbying and legislative efforts currently being undertaken to result in the program being expanded, additional permits being awarded, and new legislation being introduced in 2019 to allow for a separate permitting process to conduct cannabis research in line with the Controlled Substance Act. There is no guarantee that these efforts will result in the Company obtaining a license or permit to produce cannabis in Texas or that legislation will be adopted allowing a separate licensing or permitting process for research purposes.

In early February of 2018, Dr. Coleman and Benjamin Coleman, previous majority shareholders of Alamo CBD, voluntarily returned and canceled an aggregate of 3,280,470 common shares in order to prevent additional dilution to the shareholders during the Company’s efforts to secure new senior management, provide additional incentive equity and to form an advisory board.

“Efforts in Texas are ongoing and feedback as well as support from legislators and the medical community has been very promising,” stated Dan Weadock, Indoor Harvest’s Chief Executive Officer. “We have our foot in the door with our pending application and have put into place some really great partnerships, both in science and technology. With the world’s largest and most respected medical complex located in Houston, hosting both medical research and treatment facilities, the future of pharmaceutical development of cannabis in the state of Texas is quite promising”

Operations Summary

During the first quarter of 2018, the Company completed the following key efforts:

  • Added new senior management, including Mr. Daniel Weadock as Chief Executive Officer and Ms. Sandra Fowler as Chief Marketing Officer.
  • Formed a Scientific Advisory Board comprised of Dr. Ronald Walter, Dr. Nadia Sabeh and Mr. Damian Solomon to assist in the development of the Company’s business plan.
  • Completed initial conceptual design and engineering work to integrate the Company’s HPA technology with HVAC systems with its partner Harvest Air, LLC.
  • Entered into discussions with cannabis producers in Canada and the United States to utilize the Company’s technology and methods.

“We’ve opened up discussions with several key groups in the United States, Canada and Europe to look at ways to partner and so far the interest has been strong. We’re pursuing opportunities that will not only allow us to showcase our technology, but to establish research partnerships that will enable us to begin testing climate recipes to manipulate the phenotypic response of cannabis and testing the effects of combining certain microbe technologies with aeroponics. The Company is well positioned in what I expect will be a surge of interest in innovation, especially from those looking at the pharmaceutical potential of cannabis,” further stated Mr. Weadock.

The Company expects to begin to resume quarterly conference calls with shareholders and investors and will also schedule the Company’s annual shareholder meeting in the second half of 2018.
