Delta, BC February 22, 2023 – WestBond Enterprises Corporation (TSX-V: WBE) reports that
sales for the three months ended December 31, 2022 totalled $2,359,853 (an 18.1% decrease from
the same period in 2021). Net income also decreased accordingly, showing a loss of $19,050
(-$0.001 per share), compared to a profit of $218,549 ($0.006) per share for the same quarter in
2021. The decrease in sales and profits were directly related to the acute shortage of production
staff and weather and machine related downtime. These results show shipped orders. Booked
unshipped orders amounted to $1.3 million at the end of this quarter.
Gennaro Magistrale, President and CEO states, “The Company is pleased to report that as of the
date of this news release, production staff is almost back to pre Covid levels. The new staff
additions will greatly help in reducing the back log in unshipped orders and increase monthly
sales. We are also installing new equipment that will expand our product lines, increase our
efficiencies and further our advantage in the supply of quality paper products to the industry. As
such, the allocation of additional financial resources to these critical projects will result in the
temporary suspension of the quarterly dividend.”
