I am pleased to report on the Company’s results for the year to 31 January 2022 and the recent developments in the Company.
The fiscal period ended 31 January 2022 was a significant year for the Company, the highlight of which was in May 2021 when a
Mainly due to DJT’s construction costs, the Company made a loss for the 12-month period to 31 January 2022 of £970,343 (2021: £495,109), whilst the basic and diluted loss per share was 0.13p (2021: 0.11p). The Company’s net assets were (£288,016) at the period-end (2021: £831,037).
Further Update on DJT Plants
As stated above, the key event for DJT Plants in the last period was the receipt of its Home Office Licence to cultivate cannabis (>0.2% THC) for research purposes. Following on from receipt of this licence the DJT Plants team broke ground at its site, and commenced and completed construction of its 0.2Ha of multi-chapelle growing structures and accompanying indoor research facility. This construction project was completed in 7 months, an impressive feat in normal times but one made even more impressive given the lack of supply of many key materials due to the ongoing supply chain issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the start of the 2022-2023 fiscal year, focus at DJT Plants turned to recruiting an expanded operational team to run the strain stabilisation programme whilst ensuring the key disciplines of genetics, hands on growing experience and the ability to manage complex procedures and supply chains were properly covered. This has since been done, as detailed in the RNS dated 27 April 2022. Work has also progressed on both the actual submission to the Home Office for a commercial licence and planning for the larger footprint required for commercial cultivation.
Over the past year the Company has focused its efforts on supporting the growth of its main investment, DJT Plants, through the provision of capital and operating funds as well as leadership and management skills. The Company has also progressed its proposed acquisition of the outstanding 50% of DJT Plants, conditional on the required Shareholder approvals and will bring further news on this to shareholders as soon as possible.
Peter Redmond retired from the Board in August 2021. We’d like to thank him again for his guidance and support to the company in its very early stages.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank shareholders for their continued support and patience as we work toward unlocking value in the months and years ahead. The Board views the future with much optimism. We are excited to be involved in the start of a new industry which can positively impact the lives of so many people. Our focused and diligent approach means we have a lean company focused on building measurable value. We will continue to keep shareholders updated with progress.
