Toronto, ON – TheNewswire – June 29, 2020 Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp. (CSE:CANN) (CNSX:CANN.CN) (OTC:HERTF) (“Heritage or the “Company“), today announced its financial results for the three and six month periods ended April 30, 2020 ( “Q2 2020“). All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

“We continued the advancement of our business strategy during the second quarter with Health Canada granting a sales license for Voyage and industrial hemp licenses for both CannaCure and Voyage, however revenue in the quarter was significantly impacted by decreased orders for existing contract manufacturing services, and as a result of the economic impacts of COVID-19 delayed the signing of new agreements.”, stated Clint Sharples, Chief Executive Officer of Heritage. “During this time, the Company took significant steps to ensure the continued strength of our balance sheet which we believe will support the Company through to actively launching our own branded products in July. Management is confident that this launch, as well as additional potential contract manufacturing agreements, will lead to significantly improved revenue numbers in the future.”

Selected financial highlights for the three and six month periods ended April 30, 2020 include the following:
