Neptune Wellness Solutions, Inc. Ranked in Toronto Stock Exchange's 30 Top-Performing Stocks, Named Canada's Top Growing CPG Company

Neptune Wellness Solutions, Inc., a diversified and fully integrated health and wellness company focused on natural, plant-based, sustainable, and purpose-driven lifestyle brands, is pleased to announce that the Company has been listed #11 in the TSX30 program and named as one of Canada’s top growing companies.

The Toronto Stock Exchange ranked Neptune amongst the thirty top-performing TSX stocks over a three-year period based on dividend-adjusted share price appreciation, through inclusion in the TSX30 program. In addition, Neptune has been included in the Report on Business list of Canada’s Top Growing Companies for its three-year cumulative revenue growth.

“Since Neptune first publicly listed its shares in 2011, the Toronto Stock Exchange has been an outstanding platform for North American investors to participate in the growth of our Company—especially in the past twelve months as we have transformed our business from primarily business-to-business and have extended our reach to business-to-consumer and direct-to-consumer,” said Michael Cammarata, Chief Executive Officer and President of Neptune.

“The TSX provides us with increased exposure to the North American investment community on both the buy-side and sell-side, along with access to data that gives us the ability to understand our trading activity and how to better communicate with investors.

“This is a significant development and honour for Neptune. It reflects the strong performance of Neptune’s business and our recent transformation as well as positive investor response and buy-in of our strategic vision to build a broad portfolio of natural, plant-based, and sustainable brands and consumer packaged products in key health and wellness markets, including hemp, nutraceuticals, personal care, and home care.

“It’s particularly noteworthy that Neptune is honoured during the challenging COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr. Cammarata added.

“I’m incredibly proud of how the entire Neptune team has persevered through these challenging times. The first quarter of fiscal 2021 marked a turning point for Neptune. We quadrupled first-quarter revenue to more than $21.3 million and generated gross profit margin improvements, which reflects increasing volumes and efficiencies. We attribute these milestones to our team’s hard work and dedication to our mission of redefining health and wellness. They remained agile and responsive to changing market conditions amid the COVID-19 pandemic as we sped up new product initiatives and executed against the strategy of a fully integrated health and wellness business.

“We are building our brands and innovations, moving closer to the consumer, and offering exceptional service to our B2B customers. We now move forward with a focus on consumer product goods, a direct-to-consumer business model, and a goal to enhance our own intellectual property.”

Both the TSX30 and Canada’s Top Growing Companies programs launched in 2019. The TSX30 program includes companies from a wide range of sectors and serves to highlight the power and diversity of investment opportunities in Canada’s world-class marketplace. The Report on Business Top Growing Companies award aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada.
