Gross profit continued to improve across all key growth areas of the business, with consolidated margins expanding approximately 100 basis points sequentially to 45.3% compared to 44.2% in April. The arrival of warmer weather has led to a rise in events and larger crowds, resulting in a notable increase in daily sales at PlantX'S Locavore Bar and Grill. PlantX also observed strong performance on its e-commerce platforms, and, during May, driven by the notable outcomes of both Mother's Day and Memorial Day sales. PlantX's Portfolio Coffee has recently secured larger wholesale orders, resulting in a sustained monthly revenue increase for this particular sector. In line with its commitment to growth, PlantX's juice brand, Little West, continues to focus on expanding its direct-to-consumer e-commerce operations while also establishing new partnerships with prominent wholesalers. With significant purchase orders from esteemed companies like Palace Market, Little West is venturing into new regions, reinforcing its reputation as a sought-after brand within the health-conscious market.

"As we continue our geographic expansion beyond our core regions of Southern California and Chicago, we are prioritizing revenue streams that support appropriate margins and de-emphasizing lower-margin revenue streams with more limited growth opportunities," said PlantX CEO, Lorne Rapkin. "As we continue to scale our platform, this strategic focus will become increasingly important in our initiatives to drive margins in-line with other specialty food companies, facilitating our pathway to profitability."

"Our continued growth, coupled with margin expansion, is encouraging considering the de-emphasis in certain revenue lines and the economic climate," continued Mr. Rapkin. "Our focus is on positioning PlantX as the platform of choice for the plant-based community, facilitating our e-commerce initiatives for both owned and partner products, and creating expansion opportunities through new products and geographic expansion. Our results to date demonstrate that this strategy is working."

The financial metrics disclosed in this press release are management prepared and have not been audited or reviewed by the Company's auditors. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars.
