SAN MATEO, Calif., March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQX: PLPRF) (the “Company” or “PLUS”) today announced it will report its audited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2020 after markets close on April 7, 2021, revised its previously issued fourth quarter 2020 guidance, and provided an update regarding upcoming debenture conversion deadline.
Release of Audited Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results
PLUS will report its audited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2020 after markets close on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
At 5:00 pm Eastern Time / 2:00 pm Pacific Time the same day (April 7, 2021) the Company will host a conference call and webcast to discuss the financial results and its recent corporate highlights.
Jake Heimark, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer and Nate Pearson, Chief Financial Officer will be conducting a question-and-answer session following the prepared remarks.
Update to Fourth Quarter Guidance
In November 2020, during the announcement of PLUS’s third quarter financial and operational results, the Company discussed its expectation for fourth quarter net revenues to exceed $4.0M.
While gross revenues in the period are still expected to reach $4.0M, net revenues were lower than anticipated due, in part, to the Company’s previously announced transition to a self-service distribution partner which resulted in the return of inventory originally sold to its prior distribution partner in the fourth quarter of 2020, along with higher than anticipated promotional spend.
Despite lower than anticipated net revenues during the period, the Company still expects to report healthy growth for the full-year 2020 alongside expanding gross margins, and a cash balance of over $11.0M.
Update on Debenture Conversion and Status of Shares Issued Pursuant to Such Conversion
In connection to the previously announced amendments to the terms of the Company’s 8.00% unsecured convertible debentures due February 28, 2021 (now the Company’s 12.00% secured debentures due February 28, 2024) (the “Debentures”), the Company would like to provide a reminder that holders of the Debentures are afforded the right to convert their outstanding Debentures pro rata up to a maximum amount of CAD$6,250,000 (representing 25%) of the principal amount of the Debentures, at a conversion price of CAD$0.95 per Subordinate Voting Share (the “Conversion Price”).
Each holder of the Debentures who elects to have their amended Debentures converted is required to notify Odyssey Trust Company, as trustee (the “Trustee”), prior to 4:00 p.m. (Pacific time) on March 29, 2021, being two Business Days prior to the Conversion Date of March 31, 2021.
The notice required to be provided to the Trustee is in the form attached to the supplemental indenture entered into between PLUS and the Trustee (the “Supplemental Indenture”) and filed on the Company’s SEDAR profile as Schedule “B” (the “Conversion Notice”).
After 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on March 29, 2021 Conversion Notices shall no longer be accepted by the Trustee.
Further, in the Company’s press release dated February 25, 2021, the Company incorrectly stated that the securities issued pursuant to the conversion noted in this press release would be subject to a statutory hold period of four (4) months from the date of issuance.
Subject to applicable securities law, the securities issued pursuant to the conversion noted in this press release will not be subject to a statutory hold period and will be free trading upon issuance.
