VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / May 19, 2020 / Mota Ventures Corp. (CSE:MOTA)(FSE:1WZ1)(OTC PINK:PEMTF) (the “Company“) is pleased to announce completion of an audit of the financial results of its Nature’s Exclusive brand through the twelve-months ended December 31, 2019.

  • 2019 audited financial results:
  • Revenue of Cdn$29,034,000
  • Associated expenses of Cdn$25,530,000
  • Net income of Cdn $3,505,000

“Completion of the 2019 audit is a culmination of an extensive team effort, and represents a significant milestone in the validation of our eCommerce business. The 2019 figures, where we achieved over 12% net income, provides us with a benchmark from which to measure our success in the 2020 fiscal year as we continue to build on the strong results generated by Unified,” noted Ryan Hoggan, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Throughout the 2019 calendar year, the Nature’s Exclusive brand was operated as a separate business segment of Unified Funding, LLC (“Unified“). The Company completed the acquisition of the brand, and the associated business line, on January 17, 2020. The audit was completed on carve-out financial statements of Unified, which present the standalone financial results of the brand. Figures presented in this news release were translated from US dollars into Canadian dollars using the Bank of Canada average annual exchange rate of US$1.00:Cdn$1.3269 for 2019.

The Company also announces that it has reached an agreement with Unified to amend the thresholds necessary for Unified to earn a bonus based on the financial results generated by the Nature’s Exclusive brand in the 2020 calendar year. Unified is entitled to earn a bonus payment based on the terms of the original transaction in which Mota acquired control of the brand, and the associated business line.

Under the terms of the amendment, Unified will continue to be entitled to a one-time bonus payment (the “Bonus Payment“) based on the revenue and profitability of Nature’s Exclusive in the 2020 calendar year. The Bonus Payment will be: (i) US$5,000,000, in the event gross revenue exceeds US$40,000,000 with a profit margin of at least ten percent; (ii) US$10,000,000, in the event gross revenue exceeds US$45,000,000 with a profit margin of at least ten percent; or (iii) US$15,000,000, in the event gross revenue exceeds US$50,000,000. The Bonus Payment will be payable in common shares of the Company (the “Bonus Shares“) based on an exchange rate of US$1.00 to C$1.30 and the greater of: (i) C$0.80; and (ii) the volume-weighted average closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Canadian Securities Exchange in the ten trading days prior to the last trading day of 2020. Any Bonus Shares issuable by the Company will be subject to the terms of a thirty-six month time release pooling arrangement, with applicable release dates calculated from the date of issuance of the Bonus Shares.

For further information regarding the Bonus Payment, and the acquisition of Nature’s Exclusive, readers are encouraged to review the Company’s news release of January 17, 2020.

“Revising the 2020 performance bonus will help to align our interests with Unified, and ensure they remain incentivized in the development of Nature’s Exclusive in the context of the current market. The brand has demonstrated strong financial results through 2020 to date, in spite of economic volatility and we look forward to continued success leading into the second half of 2020,” commented Ryan Hoggan, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
