TORONTO and DUEREN, Germany, Nov. 26, 2021 /CNW/ – GBLT Corp. (TSXV: GBLT) (OTCQB: GBLTF) (FSE: 4G9) (“GBLT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its third quarter financial results for the three and nine-month period ended September 30, 2021.

“We continue to increase the breadth of products delivered to our clients that include some of the largest retailers globally, with many relying on GBLT to ensure that they are able to meet the demand of their own clients throughout Europe and the rest of the world during these challenging times where a majority of retailers are facing supply chain issues,” said Dr. Thilo Senst, Founder and CEO of GBLT Corp. “Even though our margins were impacted this quarter resulting from disruption in the global supply chain, primarily due to increased airfreight and container costs, our value as a vendor to retailers has never been more apparent, having delivered strong revenue growth. We are already seeing how our relationships with clients are paying off for the future, with over €7.5m in orders for Dr. Senst branded products to be delivered throughout the first half of 2022 just for one of our clients. In addition, these products offer higher margin, anticipated at north of 20% even under the assumption of supply chain issue remaining. While our margin this quarter was certainly impacted by these supply chain issues, we are confident that this impact is temporary and that as we return to a normal environment that our change in revenue mix will result in higher gross margins and a significant increase in our Adjusted EBITDA margin.”

Dr. Senst continued, “In addition, in the month of October 2021 we achieved record revenue of €3.7m on the heels of strong demand for our private label batteries. We are extremely optimistic on the future of both the AgfaPhoto and Dr. Senst brands and are well positioned to continue growing as some of the leading brands throughout Europe. Furthermore, we have begun investing in our ecommerce strategy that we expect to contribute strongly to our growth starting in 2022.”
