LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / July 14, 2020 / CLS Holdings USA, Inc. (OTCQB:CLSH) (CSE:CLSH), the ''Company'' or ''CLS'', a diversified cannabis company operating as Cannabis Life Sciences, today announced its financial and operational results for the months of May and June 2020 with net revenues of $1,011,907 USD and $1,102,498 USD, respectively. Despite ongoing operational restrictions from COVID-19, the Company has increased its June 2020 net revenue by over 5% compared to June 2019.
"The CLS team has made a number of operational pivots since overcoming its initial financial decline in April, and we have taken the past 90 days to assess how the state's new rules and regulations will impact the Company. We are pleased to see that our ongoing efforts have reaped impressive returns," said Andrew Glashow, President and COO of CLS Holdings. "Our wholesale and branded products division, City Trees, has navigated through the most pressing challenges with state-wide Covid-19 related shutdowns and the cancellation of 4/20. Starting in May and throughout June we began to see an increase in orders from our City Trees customer base. We are cautiously optimistic that City Trees revenues are beginning to return to pre-Covid-19levels
Despite a 40% reduction in operating hours throughout the 3 month period , CLS' Oasis retail subsidiary has experienced a consistent increase in average dollar amount per transaction of 35%. Since the state allowed in-store dispensary sales to resume on May 9, the Company has successfully implemented fully functioning curbside pickup and in-store services, in addition to its previous delivery services, that are all receiving substantial consumer demand. CLS plans to continue to offer these three services until further advised by the state.
In response to the retail market stabilizing and steadily returning to pre-COVID levels, CLS plans to unveil a new product line that will feature environmentally-friendly packaging this summer. The Company has expanded its sales team in anticipation of rising demand throughout Nevada and from neighboring states.
"CLS' consistent and strong performance in spite of recent regulatory hurdles is a testament to the Company's sound foundation, and we are eager to expand our product offerings in the coming weeks," said Andrew Glashow. "Oasis has been able to successfully navigate these difficult times by remaining nimble and adjusting its operations to effectively serve our local customers".
