Valens GroWorks Corp. (TSXV:VGW, OTCQX:VGWCF) (the “Company” or “Valens”), a vertically integrated provider of industry leading extraction products and services; including a diverse suite of extraction methodologies, next generation cannabinoid delivery formats and an ISO 17025 accredited analytical lab is pleased to announce revenue guidance for the recently completed third quarter 2019 in the range of $16 million – $17 million, a significant increase over its second quarter 2019 revenue of $8.8 million.

Record Third Quarter 2019 Revenue Guidance


The Company expects to report that it has extracted over 26,000 kilograms of cannabis and hemp biomass in the third quarter of 2019. This represents a significant ramp in extraction volumes compared with the 8,547 kilograms of dried cannabis and hemp biomass it processed in the second quarter of 2019, driven by the build out of the Company’s ethanol extraction capabilities and increasing volumes from our new and existing customers.

Jeffrey Fallows, President, said “We continue to see a significant ramp up in volumes month over month with August seeing almost 50% of the volumes in the third quarter.  That pace has continued to accelerate into September as we look to fill our existing capacity on a run-rate basis in the next 6 months.”

Tyler Robson, CEO, commented, “Our 425,000 kilograms of extraction capacity enabled us to process record volumes in the third quarter of 2019, making us the largest processor of cannabis and hemp biomass in Canada and driving significant revenue growth for the Company. We continue to execute on delivering the highest quality extraction services to our customers as the demand for distillates ramps up in anticipation of edibles and concentrates hitting the shelves later this year. As more companies begin to harvest large volumes of licensed industrial hemp, we also expect demand for hemp extraction, processing and CBD-infused product formulation to accelerate. To meet this demand, we have developed what we believe is a first-of-its-kind ethanol extraction line that utilizes equipment from around the world to deliver high quality distillate to our customers. Looking to the future, and to position us to keep pace with the growth of the industry, we are also expanding our 425,000 kilogram capacity to over 1,000,000 kilograms in the first half of 2020.”
