Company Reports First Revenues With 72.7% Gross Margin

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - Peak Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: PKPH) ("Peak Pharma" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the research, development, sales and marketing of safe, hemp-based, medicinal products and supplements, today announced results of operations for the three months ending December 31, 2014, which included revenue of $161,360 and gross profit of $117,338 or 72.7%.

Dr. Soren Mogelsvang, President and CEO of Peak Pharmaceuticals, commented, "This is an exciting time for Peak Pharma, as we have transitioned from a development stage company to full commercialization, and we are now generating revenue from our Canna-Pet™ veterinary products. We see enormous market potential for this product line and plan to aggressively market and grow this business. Now that we are generating revenue and have demonstrated market demand through our e-commerce portal, we are actively pursuing additional distribution channels."

"Later this year, our goal is to release our first human products, which we believe represents an even larger market opportunity. Meanwhile, we have developed a very scalable business model as evidenced by over 70 percent gross margins. We have also carefully managed our expenses and maintained a very lean overhead. As we continue to grow revenue, we anticipate profitability and look forward to delivering substantial value for our shareholders."

All revenues were earned pursuant to the Company's exclusive, worldwide license to the Canna-Pet™ veterinary products and brand. The product sales were through the Company's online e-commerce portal and select retailers. Royalty payments under the license were $25,615 for the three month period ended December 31, 2014.
