ParcelPal Technology, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ParcelPal Technology Inc. (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”), (OTC:PTNYF) (CSE:PKG) (FSE:PT0) is pleased to announce its Q1 2021 financial results highlighted by record Q1 revenue and a significantly reduced cash operating loss year over year.

Overview

In Q1 2021, the Company continued its operating success, which was driven by revenue growth of 8% to approximately $1.2 million (up from $1.1K in Q1 2020), which was a record revenue high for Q1 since inception of the Company. Importantly, the Company’s cash operating loss decreased 30% to $599,215 (compared to $849,116 in Q1 2020). Despite a much slower start to the year in business with our largest customer (due to an issue out of our control), we were able to offset it with continued diversification of our customer base, which drove revenue out of the pharmaceutical, meal kit and retail spaces.

Our revenue growth and operating loss reductions are, in large measure, driven by our business expansion plan, in which we continue to invest in our service offering, ramp up our staffing levels to meet the increase in business, and increase our focus on client diversification and higher margins.

“The actions we have taken to increase our gross revenue and rebuild our service offering have placed our Company in a better position to deliver value to our customers during the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said ParcelPal’s CEO Rich Wheeless. “This is just the beginning of our improved operating performance, and I am very encouraged by the lower operating losses which I see continuing as the Company expands into new and profitable markets in the current and future quarters.”

“We have more work to do, and we will continue to take actions to strengthen our core business,” said ParcelPal’s CEO Rich Wheeless. “I am most proud of the fact that we are well capitalized to execute the Company’s expansion and growth plan that I have laid out, including a continued expansion through organic growth, strategic transactions and/or acquisitions.”

March 31, 2021 compared to March 31, 2020 – Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue growth of 8% to $1,188,918 (up from $1,100,327 in Q1 2020), a record revenue high for Q1 since inception of the company.

  • Marketing and promotion decreased to $nil (Q1 2020 – $12,882) as the Company reduced marketing activity in an effort to converse cash and focus on operational growth.
  • Administrative, office and miscellaneous expenses decreased to $157,637 (Q1 2020 – $329,665) due to non-revenue generating cost-cutting measures.
