Carson City, NV & Hong Kong, Nov. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC), announces that for the three months of the third quarter FY2017 ending September 30, 2017, the Company posted revenues of $34,645 and a GAAP net loss of $8,081,528. Excluding a onetime, noncash good will impairment expense of $7,811,650, the non-GAAP net loss was $269,878 for the three-month period. The impairment expense was the result of the acquisition of 12 Japan, Limited in July 2017.
Angelo Ponzetta, 12 ReTech's CEO commented, "I am pleased with the progress of the Company which is occurring on several fronts, which should result in growth and profitability during FY2018. First, our pending acquisition of Active Fashion Group and our efforts to build their B2C sales channels is showing progress and we are optimistic that the resulting organic increase in sales and higher gross margins, will produce additional positive net cash flow for us.”
“Second, in recent meetings with a number of retailers in both North America and Europe, we have received positive indications of interest to move forward with the deployment of our 12 Technology Suite. It seems that they all have a common denominator, which is the need for an Omni-channel approach that gets them in front of new customers and gives them the ability to pursue these customers through multiple channels to make a sale, whether it be in the store or via e-commerce or mobile commerce channels. Retailers in general want to provide better sales environments and excellent customer service and 12 ReTech gives them the tools to do so.”
“Third, we are getting positive indications from additional consumer product brands who we are speaking to about our brand roll up strategy. We are working on several opportunities and expect to be able to make some interesting announcements in the very near future.”
Daniele Monteverde, 12 ReTech's Chief Financial Officer commented, “So far, we have frugally managed the expense side of our business, and believe that we will be in an excellent position to produce meaningful positive cash flow in FY2018 as the opportunities in front of us come to fruition.”
