VPR Brands Announces Q3 and Year to Date 2019 Results

November 13, 2019

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, Nov. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- VPR Brands, LP (OTCQB: VPRB), a market leader specializing in vaporizers and accessories for essential oils, cannabis concentrates and extracts (CBD), as well as electronic cigarettes containing nicotine, announced its third quarter and year to date 2019 financial results, posting increased revenues for both as compared to the comparable 2018 periods.

VPR Brands saw a 13% increase in sales revenue to $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to the third quarter of 2018, while also posting a 24% increase in sales revenue to $4.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2018. VPR Brands’ gross profit margins remained healthy, at above 40%.

“We believe VPR Brands performed well in Q3 despite the slowdown in purchasing within the vape industry late in the quarter. We were still able to grow the top line sales and maintain a healthy margin despite the obstacles encountered in the domestic vape industry. We are focusing our time and resources on CBD, international expansion, and white label clients while the mainstream domestic vape industry re-stabilizes,” said Dan Hoff, Chief Operating Officer of VPR Brands.

Kevin Frija, VPR Brands’ Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, commented, “The vaping industry as a whole hit some major headwinds recently, which affected our sales momentum, as most of our business is vape related. We have started developing a new innovative nicotine replacement product as we expect demand to increase to replace vaping as an alternative, especially where flavors are concerned. We also shifted focus to our CBD brands, which softened the blow. We believe the CBD market represents our best opportunity to expand our sales both near and long term.”
