Volatus Aerospace Corp.
The headline of the release dated May 26, 2022 has been updated to read "Volatus Aerospace Corp. Announces Record First Quarter 2022 Sales" sted "Volatus Aerospace Corp. Announces Record First Quarter Annual Sales" The updated release reads: Volatus Aerospace Corp. Announces Record First Quarter 2022 Sales Volatus Aerospace Corp. (TSXV: VOL) (OTCQB: VLTTF) ("Volatus" or "the Company"), is pleased to announce record sales for the first quarter of 2022. The growth was driven by sales of products and solutions. Key Financial Highlights: Revenue for Q1 2022 was $4,807,829, an increase of 64% over the previous quarter and a sixteen-fold increase over the year-on-year quarter of 2021. The revenue was driven predominantly by organic growth across Canada, the USA, Latin America, and some parts of Europe. The drone services and training segment are lowest in the first quarter due to seasonality. Gross profit for Q1 2022 was $1,092,840 an increase of $930,748 over the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit is due to scaling in product and service activities. Volatus recorded a comprehensive loss of $1,774,397 compared to a comprehensive loss of $1,328,628 in the previous quarter. This was due to increased investment in human resources and expansion activities. Operational Highlights: The Company achieved significant milestones in the first quarter of 2022, namely: Volatus scaled its activities in the United States and the United Kingdom, hiring key people in the public safety and defense sectors. As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the demand for defense related drones has significantly increased globally. The Company accelerated its plans to expand in Europe and nearby regions and is promoting its capabilities to provide ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) and humanitarian cargo drone solutions. The Company is actively supporting non-government organizations (NGOs) including Mriya Aid and Second Front Ukraine in their efforts to support Ukraine. Volatus has entered numerous strategic partnerships with North American and European UAS manufacturers having unique capabilities in different sectors - providing a portfolio of technologies for it to commercialize and present as integrated solutions to its clients in the commercial, public safety and defense sectors. These technologies have been “Vetted by Volatus” – a program whereby a team of subject matter experts from Volatus perform due diligence on the technology and certify that it is ready for commercialization. The Company made a strategic move with the acquisition of MVT Geo Solutions Inc. on February 28, 2022. This acquisition enhanced Volatus' service and data processing capabilities in the province of Quebec and Eastern Canada. Volatus will integrate the operations of MVT to provide data insights and scale its LiDAR expertise across Canada. As part of creating a drone community, Volatus introduced Drone Network News available here. This communication channel was developed to inform various stakeholders in the industry, enable sharing of knowledge and informed decision making and increase the awareness and market exposure of Volatus as an industry expert. This channel highlights all the key developments in the drone industry across the globe through articles, discussions, and podcasts with key industry leaders. “Drones are the future and Volatus is the future of drones,” said Glen Lynch, President and CEO of Volatus. “During the quarter we have made considerable investments in equipment, inventory, sales personnel, and marketing in preparation for continued strong expansion during the remainder of 2022. We are committed to building the global drone company and running it sustainably.” The condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and associated management discussion and analysis, are made available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com Webinar In conjunction with this release, Volatus investor relations Kate McKenna will host a webinar on Tuesday, May 31 st at 11:00 AM EST at which time Glen Lynch, Chief Executive Officer, and Abhinav Singhvi, Chief Financial Officer, will review the quarterly results and major milestones.
