Del

EDMONTON, Alberta, Feb. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radient Technologies Inc. (“Radient” or the “Company”) (TSX Venture: RTI; OTCQX: RDDTF) has released its financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2018. The reviewed financial statements and Management’s Discussion & Analysis are available under the Company’s profile at www.SEDAR.com.

Key Highlights:

Financials:

Radient’s balance sheet remains strong, with a cash balance of CAD $37.6M and working capital of CAD $37.4M as of December 31, 2018. This reserve of cash will allow Radient to execute on its previously announced physical and operational expansions in Edmonton and Germany (summarized in greater detail below). These facilities will be dedicated to the production of premium grade, high-margin cannabis and hemp derived ingredients and products. 
             
Radient’s current total debt is CAD $10M and the Company was granted its Standard Processing License from Health Canada on February 1, 2019. This puts the Company in an advantageous position as it expects to be generating revenues during the previously announced build-out of its brand new facilities in Edmonton and Germany (please see below for further details including estimated annual throughputs).

Corporate Update:
             
Edmonton I and Standard Processing License from Health Canada:

On February 4, 2019, Radient announced it was granted its Standard Processing license from Health Canada, permitting the Company to begin legally extracting cannabinoids for the purpose of sale to Canadian federal license holders. The Company expects to be capable of processing cannabis at a capacity of more than 200 kg per day at its Edmonton I facility for its partners, including Aurora Cannabis Inc. (“Aurora”) (TSX: ACB; NYSE: ACB). Radient will inform shareholders of the commencement of production for sale to its partners via press release.

Retrofitting Operation: CBD From Industrial Hemp (“Edmonton II” facility):

Radient announced on November 28, 2018 that it would be retrofitting a portion of its existing manufacturing facility for the processing of industrial hemp at industrial scale volumes (the “Edmonton II” facility). The Company previously estimated that it would be capable of processing throughputs of 1,200 kg per day of industrial hemp at this location. Radient now expects that it will be capable of processing industrial hemp at throughputs of up to 1,500 kg per day at this location. The Edmonton II facility is expected to be complete before the end of calendar 2019, at which point Radient expects to commence processing industrial hemp for its partners, including Aurora.

Edmonton III and Germany Manufacturing Facility Construction:

As previously announced on February 4, 2019 Radient has commenced foundation work on the construction of its Edmonton III facility of over 100,000 sq. ft., located on the lands adjacent to the Edmonton I and Edmonton II facilities, at 4035 101 St NW, Edmonton, Alberta. The Company expects to complete the development of Edmonton III in the second half of calendar 2020. Expected throughputs at this facility will be 1,000 kg of medical cannabis per day, and 10,000 kg of industrial hemp per day. Radient will be applying to receive EU-GMP certification for this facility.

Additionally, as previously announced on February 4, 2019 the Company has completed site selection and initial renderings for its Germany Manufacturing Facility, which upon completion (expected in the second half of calendar 2020), will be similar in size and throughput capabilities to the Edmonton III facility.

Natac Solutions Joint Arrangement:

On October 16, 2018, Radient announced that it had signed a binding letter of intent with global ingredient manufacturer, Grupo Natac S.L. (“Natac”), to form a Joint Arrangement called Natac Solutions. The specific terms of the Joint Arrangement are still being finalized.

Natac Solutions is, according to its business plan, combining Radient’s patented MAP™ technology and Natac’s expertise in the development of Full Plant Profile® premium plant-based ingredients in order to create proprietary customized extracts and ingredients for its customers.

Post-Reporting Events:

Receipt of Licenses for Analytical Testing and Research from Health Canada:

Radient is pleased to announce that it has received its licenses for Analytical Testing and Research (the “Research Licenses”) from Health Canada, issued under the Cannabis Act and its regulations. These Research Licenses were granted on February 8, 2019 for the Company’s Research & Development Lab (the “Lab”), located at 8223 Roper Road, Edmonton, Alberta. These Research Licenses will replace the Lab’s previously held Dealer’s License, which was administered under the Office of Controlled Substances.

These Research Licenses allow the Company to perform research and analytical testing on cannabis materials, submit research protocols for various activities, and to apply for amendments to its existing licenses through the Cannabis Tracking and License System (the “CTLS”) to demonstrate its compliance to the Cannabis Regulations.

Stock Options Plan:

The Company announces today the grant of 1,025,000 stock options. Of these options, 250,000 were granted to a Director of the Company and the balance to management and consultants pursuant to the Company’s Stock Option Plan.
