Management Comments

“We had an extremely busy and fruitful third fiscal quarter. We experienced a rising demand for our exclusively distributed premium product, the Bidi™ Stick. We have seen an increase in sales of almost 44% from the previous quarter, with our sales growth occurring mostly organically through smaller distribution channels and wholesalers,” said Niraj Patel, president and CEO of Kaival Brands. “Now in the fourth fiscal quarter, we are focused on expanding our distribution into large national retailers and convenience chains.”

“We are proud to announce that Bidi™ Sticks can now be found nationally in over 850 retail stores, like Fas Mart and SprintMart, owned by GPM Investments, LLC, in addition to over 2,200 current Circle K convenience stores, and we expect in the coming months for our distribution to expand potentially into thousands more retailers and convenience chains,” Patel continued. “Bidi™ Sticks can also be purchased online for in-person delivery from any goPuff.com facility that has the ability to sell Bidi™ Sticks legally with proper age-verification gates within that state or municipality. Internationally, we also recently shipped an initial order valued at approximately $166,000 to Ambros, Inc., a company located in Guam that is the exclusive distributor of Johnson & Johnson and Budweiser products to all retailers located in Guam. The Bidi™ Stick will be the only vaping device offered by Ambros, Inc. to their customers and retailers.”

“Kaival Brands is also focusing on the future for all stockholders with the recent cancellation of 300 million shares of common stock, resulting in the Company currently having 277,282,630 total issued and outstanding shares of common stock and 3 million shares of Series A preferred stock. Kaival Brands also recently secured the services of InvestorBrandNetwork to assist the Company in brand awareness. We believe brand awareness is the first step in creating a more active daily trading base for our common stock. We also intend to explore other options in connection with our goal of expanding and growing our business and brand, such as public offerings of our equity, mergers and acquisitions, as well as possibly qualifying for an up-listing to Nasdaq,” Patel concluded.

**The Company’s President, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, owns and controls Bidi Vapor; thus, Bidi Vapor and the Company are considered under common control, and Bidi Vapor is considered a related party.

Financial Results for the three months ended July 31, 2020, compared to three months ended July 31, 2019

Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 were approximately $32.4 million, compared to $0 in the same period of the prior fiscal year. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, we entered into a distribution agreement, pursuant to which we were granted the exclusive, worldwide rights to distribute certain products, primarily consisting of the BidiTM Stick (the “Products”). In connection therewith, we entered into sub-distribution agreements and other agreements with counterparties and granted such sub-distributors the right to distribute the Products to non-retail customers within the United States.

Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was approximately $4.4 million, compared to $0 for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. Total cost of revenue was approximately $28 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to $0 for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. The increase in gross profit is entirely driven by the sales of the Products during the third quarter of fiscal year 2020.

We expect future operating expenses to continue to increase while we generate increased sales growth.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding financial results, this press release includes references to gross profit. Gross profit is determined by deducting the cost of revenue from operating revenue. Cost of revenue includes direct and indirect labor, materials, services, fixed costs and variable overhead. Gross profit should not be considered an alternative to operating income or net income, which are determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe that gross profit, although a non-GAAP financial measure, is useful and meaningful to investors as a basis for making investment decisions. It provides investors with information that demonstrates our cost structure and provides funds for our total costs and expenses. We use gross profit in measuring the performance of our business. Other companies may calculate gross profit in a different manner.
