Benchmark Provides Update on Financial Condition of Potanicals

10/23/2020 | 02:40pm EST

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 23, 2020) - Benchmark Botanics, Inc. (CSE: BBT) ("Benchmark" or the "Company") Benchmark announces that the ongoing working capital deficiency of Potanicals Green Growers Inc. ("Potanicals"), the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, may result in Potanicals being unable to meet all of its accounts payable at October 31, 2020, including its October 31, 2020 payroll obligations for all 39 of Potanicals' employees, which will cause material uncertainty about Potanicals' ability to continue as a going concern. During the period from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019, Potanicals had a net loss of approximately $1,736,000. As at October 22, 2020, Potanicals had cash of $102,493, and a working capital deficiency of $134,605.

The Company is actively exploring various options to address the financial difficulty issues of Potanicals, including increasing its sales from inventory, cutting its costs, restructuring its operations, and undertaking an equity or debt financing. To meet such funding requirements, if the Company closes an additional equity financing, it would be dilutive to existing shareholders. Debt financing, if available, may also involve restrictions on financing and operating activities. There is no assurance that such additional financing will be available on terms acceptable to the Company or at all. If the Company is unable to obtain additional financing as needed, it may be required to reduce the scope of the operations of Potanicals or any planned expansion. No assurances can be given that the Company will be able to raise the additional funding that may be required for such activities. The Company will provide further updates on this matter as it develops.
