Edmonton, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – March 22, 2023) – Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI) (“Radient” or the “Company”), a commercial manufacturer of diverse, novel, and high-quality cannabis extracts and packaged products, reports its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2022.
Recent key highlights:
Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was $1,029,019, which compares to $1,576,616 in the same period in the prior year.
Gross profit for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was $272,309, which compares to $233,836 in the same period in the prior year.
Operating expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2022, were $1,308,097, which compares to $2,551,342 in the same period in the prior year.
The Company has closed the pre-rolls program which was not profitable and intends to focus on the Company’s TRX and HighGrade hydrocarbon concentrate product lines.
Sales of HighGrade hydrocarbon concentrates continue to improve, and the Company is receiving repeat-customer orders and positive product reviews.
The company’s cannabis licence under Excise Tax, 2021 was renewed until June 7, 2023.
On August 26, 2022, the Company received a demand notice from its secured lender for approximately $10.5 million plus accrued costs and interest. On February 8, 2023, the secured lender obtained a redemption order from the Court to list for sale the mortgaged property under certain conditions. On March 21, 2023, the secured lender was granted a Limited Receivership Order to sell equipment not required for operations.
The Company is pursuing avenues to raise sufficient working capital and to restructure its debt to allow the Company to operate as a going concern but cannot assure it will be able to do so.
The TRX acquisition, together with the Company’s exclusive licensing and extraction agreement with HighGrade Supply (“HighGrade”), has allowed the Company to produce what we believe to be some of the highest quality cannabis 2.0 products available in Canada, including distillates and isolates of products including THCa Crystalline, Delta 8 THC, CBG, CBN and hydrocarbon products such as High Cannabinoid Full Spectrum Extracts (HCFSE), High Terpene Full Spectrum Extracts (HTFSE), Crumble, Shatter, Live Resin, Budder, Terp Diamonds and more. These premium hydrocarbon products are sold through provincially licensed retailers in eleven Canadian provinces and territories.
The Company expects sales of hydrocarbon products to continue but requires sufficient working capital to facilitate fulfilling product purchase orders and growth.
The Company is encountering difficulty in meeting financial obligations as they become due. The continuing operations of the Company are dependent upon funding provided by investors and realizing profits from products being commercialized. The Company’s efforts are focused on financing its future requirements through a combination of debt and/or equity issuances. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain such financings or obtain them on favorable terms. This uncertainty casts doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The company is currently examining all restructuring options.
The interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the carrying value or presentation of assets or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

(“Moskowitz”) issued a demand notice on August 26, 2022, to the Company for payment of approximately $10.5 million, plus accrued costs and additional interest to the date of payment pursuant to the terms of a secured loan facility (the “Facility”) guaranteed by the Company.
