MELBOURNE, Fla., March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Kona Gold Beverage, Inc. (OTCQB: KGKG), a holding company focused on product development in the better-for-you and hemp and CBD functional beverage sector, is pleased to announce February 2021 revenues from the Company’s subsidiaries were the highest monthly revenues when compared to the previous monthly revenues over the last 15 months.
Kona Gold LLC saw revenue of over $115,000, and Gold Leaf Distribution saw revenue of almost $60,000 in the month of February. This was the highest monthly revenue for Kona Gold LLC dating back to November of 2019, and Gold Leaf Distribution LLC’s highest monthly revenue to date. Gold Leaf Distribution continues to break monthly revenue records and is nearing profitability. Kona Gold LLC realized an increase in a gross profit margin of approximately 22% in February of 2020 to approximately 40% in February of 2021. Gold Leaf Distribution LLC continues to operate at a gross profit margin ranging from 28-30%, which is above industry standards of approximately 25%.
The catalyst for the increased revenue for Kona Gold LLC is from the recent acquisition of S&S Beverage (Lemin Lemonade) with new distributor agreements and subsequent orders beginning to come in for the upcoming spring sets. Additionally, the Company has seen increased sales from the Company’s other portfolio products, Kona Gold Hemp Energy Drinks and HighDrate CBD Energy Waters. Gold Leaf Distribution LLC’s catalyst for the increased revenue has come from cultivating relationships with existing accounts, opening new accounts, and adding more profitable, higher demanding products to its portfolio.
Kona Gold Beverage anticipates its subsidiaries will continue to have a substantial increase in revenue in March, as an increase has been evident in a very strong start to sales in the beginning of March. Additionally, an increase in sales expected in the coming months of 2021 as the Company enters into the historically busier beverage seasons of spring and summer.
