Rapid Nutrition Half Year Results
March 31, 2019
Rapid Nutrition PLC
(“Rapid Nutrition” or “the Company”)
Rapid Nutrition Plc, a natural healthcare company focused on the research and development, manufacturing and distribution of weight-loss and diet management products, sports nutrition products, vitamins and dietary supplements and a range of life science products announces interim results for the six months ended 31 December 2017.
As disclosed in the operation update published on the 26 February 2019, the company generated revenue of £0.436m (AUD$781,000) in the period under review. The modest decline in the first six months was largely due to product regulatory challenges in Sri Lanka, which have now been addressed. The second half of the year has begun strongly with excellent progress being made across the business in support of the eventual rollout in Sri Lanka, the launch of GNC into the Australia market as well as the launch of its flagship brand SystemLS through GNC Stores in the US. Detailed planning is being finalised with retailer opening orders expected this quarter. The Company’s new health food store in Sydney, NSW Australia has performed very well since its inception mid last year. The health food store continues to deliver strong revenue’s and provides the Company with a well established platform to test new product lines and obtain consumer feedback before investing in larger production runs.
The second half of the year is anticipated to be stronger, given the phasing of its wider distribution network in the US & Australia. We remain confident that that this will be a year of substantial growth across the business.
