AMMO, Inc. Provides Corporate Update to Address Significant Consumer Demand
– Unprecedented Demand Within AMMO’s Commercial Ammunition Market Driving a 400% Increase in Purchase Orders Over the Past Two Weeks –
– AMMO Deemed an Essential Business and Will Stay Open to Fulfill Heightened Order Demand –
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, March 25, 2020 — AMMO, Inc. (OTCQB: POWW) (“AMMO” or the “Company”), a premier American ammunition and munition components manufacturer and technology leader, is providing a corporate update amidst unprecedented demand within its commercial ammunition market.
Over the past two weeks, AMMO has received a significant amount of purchase orders from various retail partners, representing a 400% increase versus typical monthly orders. Several notable retailers to have placed orders include Bass Pro Shops, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Gander Outdoors and Farm Fleet.
AMMO believes the significant increase in demand is primarily a result of uncertainties in the economy with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming presidential election. The Company has been well prepared with the necessary manufacturing capabilities to meet the high demand.
“The significant increase in demand in our commercial market over the past two weeks is unlike anything we have seen before,” said Fred Wagenhals, AMMO’s CEO. “The fact that we have been able to successfully meet this demand and process all orders with excellent customer service is a testament to our talented team and exceptional capabilities. We expect this uptick in demand to continue through the election cycle, and we remain in a good position to service our customers during this period.”
AMMO is designated a critical infrastructure supplier because it directly and indirectly supplies ammunition and munition components to the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies. As a result, the Company’s facilities in Arizona and Wisconsin will be able to remain in operation and fulfill purchase orders amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
AMMO anticipates providing preliminary results for the quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, within the next three weeks.
