MCOA’s Chief Executive Officer, Jesus Quintero, said, “We are very pleased with all the efforts and achievements we accomplished during the first quarter. It was a busy quarter as we initiated our international sales efforts, rebranded our hempSMART products, and for the first time launched our own e-commerce platform. We are poised for growth and have the necessary capital to deploy in order to secure key acquisition targets. Our total assets nearly doubled in the last three months since year-end, despite the challenges of operating during the pandemic. We expect sales to increase during the rest of 2021 as our new e-commerce sales platform and rebranding begins to be recognized.”
The Company generated revenues of $34,930 and $81,819 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, MCOA also reported net operating losses of $782,917 as compared to $392,157, respectively. This increase in the loss was due principally to a substantial change in valuation of derivatives.
The marginal increase in losses quarter over quarter were primarily attributed to the restructuring of MCOA’s sales team and migration to new e-commerce platform, compliance with regulatory requirements for rebranding of products, as well as significant infrastructure development of MCOA’s website.
