Second Quarter 2021 Business Highlights

  • The Company launched its highly anticipated CBD Gummy line in early August 2021, utilizing HempFusion’s proprietary broad-spectrum hemp extract, never an isolate. The gummies feature natural functional ingredients and premium flavors, two popular consumer driven trends. According to Brightfield Group, the CBD gummy market is set to achieve $500 million in sales in 2021, up 44% from 2020, and is expected to reach $1.8 billion in 2026.
  • In June 2021, HempFusion launched its new EU compliant Probulin in Boots Pharmacies in Ireland, establishing a foundation for further opportunities and expansion in retailers across Ireland, the United Kingdom and Europe. Boots Ireland is part of the Retail Pharmacy International Division of one of the world’s largest purchasers of prescription drugs and many other health and well-being products, with one of the largest retail footprints in the world.
  • In early June 2021, HempFusion launched its sixth distribution channel, Private Label. The Company secured a 10 SKU private label deal with a leading national publicly traded grocery retailer. The initial order for approximately $250,000 was shipped in July 2021. The Company anticipates this particular account to generate north of $500,000 for 2021 and approximately $1 million or more in 2022.
  • HempFusion’s ecommerce business is growing. New customer acquisition increased online by 69.7% over Q1, 2021, and not only did online increase for both Probulin and HempFusion, but traffic increased by 46.06% over Q1, 2021. Probulin’s average conversion rate has remained very strong and consistent at 3.21%, and HempFusion has demonstrated a dramatic increase now at 4.37%.
  • In May 2021, HempFusion announced an exclusive partnership with two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and five-time World Champion, Kaillie Humphries. HempFusion CBD and Probulin Probiotics will be Kaillie’s exclusive sponsors in their respective categories through February’s Olympic Games in Beijing 2022 where she is the front-runner for gold for Team USA in both the Two-woman Bobsled and the newly introduced Women’s Monobob.
  • Subsequent to the quarter end, HempFusion completed both of the previously announced acquisitions of Sagely Enterprises Inc. (Sagely Naturals) and APCNA Holdings LLC (Apothecanna). These acquisitions greatly expand the distribution footprint of the Company to over 15,000 locations providing the opportunity to expand with ingestible products.
