Botaneco Releases Year Ended December 2012 Results
WINCHESTER, ON, April 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Botaneco Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV: BOT) reports that revenue of $3,160,569 was recorded for the year ended December 31, 2012 representing an increase of $1,294,063 (69%) over the prior year. These increased revenues are primarily attributable to the sales generated by Natunola of $1,854,929. Of the total revenue, $1,223,796 was provided by discontinued operations. The discontinued operations refer to the assets and liabilities held for sale of Botaneco Specialty Ingredients Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, based in Calgary, AB as disclosed in an earlier press release dated March 28, 2013.
A net loss of $3,017,913 was recorded for the year ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $843,199 over the prior year. This reduced loss was attributable primarily to: (a) an increase in revenues and gross profit due to the acquisition of Natunola that occurred in October 2011; and (b) a reduction in G&A expenses occurring due to reduced employment costs as the number of higher earning employees has been reduced since the previous year. Of this loss, $1,550,544 was due to discontinued operations.
Basic and diluted loss per share was $0.04 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $0.10 in the previous year.
