AMMO, Inc. Raises Fiscal 2Q Revenue Estimate to $55 Million
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, September 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMMO, Inc. (Nasdaq: POWW & POWWP) (“AMMO” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated producer of high-performance ammunition and components and operator of GunBroker.com, the largest online marketplace serving the firearms and shooting sports industries, today announced it is increasing its prior fiscal second quarter $51 million revenue estimate to approximately $55 million for the period ending September 30, 2021.
“The increase in our second fiscal quarter revenue estimate reflects continued momentum across our entire business,” said Fred Wagenhals, AMMO, Inc.’s Chairman and CEO. “Transaction activity at our leading marketplace platform, GunBroker.com, remains more robust, even when compared to last year’s record setting performance. We are also in the midst of implementing several key initiatives to accelerate the marketplace’s growth, including engaging with manufacturers, distributors and importers to expand the marketplace offerings, while also expanding GunBroker.com’s customer service team with 11 new hires and more to follow.”
Mr. Wagenhals further noted that “the growth in our core ammunition business continues to be driven by strong underlying demand for our unique, high-performance products, coupled with ongoing efforts to increase capacity. Since consolidating all manufacturing operations this past April in our Manitowoc, Wisconsin plant, we have doubled our priming and loading capacity, and increased our brass manufacturing capacity by approximately 15%. And there are more production enhancements planned for operational deployment shortly. Finally, our team continues their work to bring our new world-class plant online and fully operational without production down-time in the Summer of 2022, on schedule and within budget.”
