ToughBuilt Amazon Storefront Sales Should Have an Annualized Revenue Run Rate of Approximately $5.4 million Based Upon November Sales
LAKE FOREST, CA, Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ToughBuilt Industries, Inc. (”ToughBuilt”) (NASDAQ: TBLT; TBLTW), a cutting edge product design, manufacturer and distributor of innovative products, tools and other accessories for the professional and do-it-yourself construction industries, today announced that its U.S. and Canadian Amazon storefronts had sales of $450,000 for the month of November 2019 (or sales in the initial eight months of operation in excess of $2.25 million, up from the $1.8 million announced for the initial seven months of operation). This equated to an annualized run-rate of $5.4 million (based on November sales), which is 54% higher than the $3.5 million run-rate (based on October 2019 sales) announced last month. These sales were achieved with increased momentum in product demand over the past several months and rest on a foundation of an increase in product offerings to the Amazon storefronts.
Michael Panosian, Chief Executive Officer of ToughBuilt, commented, “As we reported on November 26th, the initial seven months of operation of our North American storefronts had well exceeded expectations. We saw an even greater upward trajectory in November, with $41,567 on Black Friday and $53,840 on Cyber Monday, alone. Our December sales are off to an even stronger start with $154,097 in sales in the first six days, and over $550,000 in sales projected for the month of December. As we continue to show increased revenue for our products through our Amazon storefronts month over month, we look to a strong start to 2020 in our online sales and hope to see in our international storefronts increased sales based on our continued North American momentum.”
