Anaheim, CA, November 16, 2022 – LiveWire Ergogenics Inc. (OTC: LVVV), a company focused on acquiring, leasing, licensing, and managing special purpose real estate properties conducive to producing high-quality, handcrafted, and sun-grown specialty cannabis products for medical and recreational adult-use in California reports financial results for the third quarter 2022.

 

 

Bill Hodson, CEO of LiveWire Ergogenics, states, “At LiveWire, we continue to implement our business model of licensing, marketing, and managing the cultivation of high-quality handcrafted specialty cannabis products produced on our property Estrella Ranch in Paso Robles and Makana Ola in Humboldt that address increasing customer demand and command higher prices and profit margins. The past several months have been trying times for the cannabis industry, but we now seem to see early signs of a turn-round, at least for well-structured companies in the sector reflected in stabilizing share prices. Our financial results for Q3 2022 do not reflect the impact of our Estrella Ranch and Makana Ola harvests yet. The products resulting from this harvest are currently being converted into our “Estrella Weedery” ™ branded products and other brands for distribution through direct-to-consumer distributors and third-party private-label partners. Our nine months’ performance results are clearly establishing a trend, having generated the third consecutive profitable quarter for 2022, and we expect to generate a substantial increase in performance for Q4 2022 and the entire year. We project 2023 as our breakout year with significant increases in revenue and profits.”

 

Generated Three Profitable Quarters during 2022

Third Quarter Revenue in 2022 Increased by 51%

Nine Months of Revenue in 2022 Increased by 183%

Nine Months Net Profit Increased by 107%

 

Mr. Hodson continues, “We will stay focused on the management and continued development of Estrella Ranch and the support of our subsidiaries and affiliates involved in the cultivation of handcrafted organic style Estate Grown Weedery products at the Ranch and Makana Ola Farms. We will continue to implement our unique vision carefully, following a strict discipline of operating with low overhead and diminishing debt burden without sacrificing quality or new product development. Beginning in Q4 of this year and accelerating over the next two years, we expect to substantially increase revenues and profits based on our proven model while cautiously exploring many currently existing value acquisition opportunities. We believe this approach is further supported by the inevitable balancing of the industry’s price imparity between illicit and legal sales while legalization and accounting parity will continue in California and throughout the country. We expect to produce a solid and sustainable ROI for our shareholders for years to come.

 

Q3 2022 Financial Results

 

Comparison of the Results of Operations for the quarter and the Nine Months that ended September 30, 2022, and 2021.

This increase in revenue is due to higher income in rental and licensing fees, distribution licensing, and the continued optimization of the management of our subsidiaries and affiliate companies’ intellectual and real estate properties. We expect this trend to increase for Q4 of 2022 and even further during 2023.
