3 Sixty Risk Solutions Ltd. (“3 Sixty” or the “Company”) (CSE:SAFE, OTCQB:SAYFF, FSE:62P2) is pleased to announce that the Company, which operates through its wholly-owned subsidiary, 3 Sixty Secure Corp., has realized annualized cost savings of more than $2.4 million through enhanced operational efficiencies; the Company maintains its annualized cost reduction target of $4 million by the end of 2019. These realized and expected cost savings are expected to accelerate the Company’s path to sustainable profitability while supporting 3 Sixty’s growth strategy. The Company expects a strong finish to the third quarter as it continues to secure lucrative contracts across all company services platforms and is on track to meet or exceed its previously announced revenue target of $8.5 million for Q3 while aggressively enhancing efficiencies. These efficiencies have been identified primarily post-transaction of the INKAS Security Services Ltd. acquisition.
“3 Sixty remains in growth mode, however management has identified and implemented significant cost savings that accelerate our path to sustainable profitability without sacrificing our commitment to customer service or impacting our growth agenda,” said Thomas Gerstenecker, CEO and Founder of 3 Sixty. “An improved cost structure, continued customer wins and meeting or exceeding our quarterly revenue guidance provides us with the financial flexibility to execute against our growth strategy as we remain laser-focused on leading the cannabis security industry in Canada and expanding our services within the US.”
“Management will identify further efficiencies heading into 2020 as we continue to build a lean company while expanding our service offerings, gaining market share within Canada, and expanding into strategic locations in the US,” added Thomas Gerstenecker. “We have already secured licenses in Nevada, Florida, Ohio and managed services in New Jersey, and we have set our sights on Missouri, New York, Colorado, Arizona and California as potential areas of expansion.”
The Company has retained the services of Renmark Financial Communications Inc. (“Renmark”) to manage parts of its investor relations activities. In consideration of the services to be provided, the monthly fees incurred by 3 Sixty will be a cash consideration of up to $7,000 CAD, starting September 1, 2019 for a period of six months ending on March 31st, 2020 and monthly thereafter. Renmark does not have any interest, directly or indirectly, in 3 Sixty or its securities, or any right or intent to acquire such an interest.
