Tiffany Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Unrivaled Brands, stated, “In my recent shareholder letter, I emphasized the importance of a Company’s management and board being able to act swiftly and responsibly to both preserve value and effectively position the organization to capture future growth.
“I further indicated our immediate focus was to protect our performing assets and to firmly plant us on the path to profitability, beginning with the development and execution of a 100-day transformation plan.
“I am pleased to report that after an exhaustive review of each of the company’s business units, we have made significant strides in tightening operations and improving financial systems and controls. We have addressed and continue to identify meaningful opportunities to reset the cost structure.
“We also are taking the necessary steps to restructure our debt, starting with People’s First Choice which will begin to help us preserve operating cashflow. In addition, we are actively pursuing sources of non-dilutive capital.
“Finally, we realize any transformation takes time and we have a lot of work ahead of us. We expect to announce new members of the management team who have successfully led relevant transformation and turnarounds prior to joining Unrivaled.
“I continue to be encouraged by our team members who remain hard at work and focused on our day-to-day business.
“Together, we are making progress and I look forward to sharing more details on our refined strategy and the resulting specific accomplishments, in the coming weeks and months.”
