NaturalShrimp, Inc. Discusses Significant Expansion Strategy and Upcoming Uplisting with The Stock Day Podcast
Phoenix, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - December 24, 2021) - The Stock Day Podcast welcomed NaturalShrimp, Inc. (OTCQB: SHMP) ("the Company"), a publicly traded aquaculture company, headquartered in Dallas, with production facilities located near San Antonio, Texas and Webster City, Iowa. CFO of the Company, William Delgado, joined Stock Day host Everett Jolly.
Jolly began the interview by asking about the Company's distribution progress. Delgado elaborated on the Company's recent distributor agreement with Gulf Seafood for 25,000 pounds of live shrimp involves a unique harvesting and packaging process. "Since we're selling a smaller shrimp, our cost now is at three dollars per pound," said Delgado. "We're shipping this week," he added.
"We're working on an approximately 300 store Midwest grocery store chain," he continued. "We're also going to be putting together a home delivery service directly from the company," said Delgado. "We're going to target our shareholders."
Delgado then elaborated on the Company's long-term plans, which includes additional distribution agreements. "We're fairly confident that we're going to end up getting a distribution deal with those folks by the end of the first quarter of next year," he shared.
Jolly then asked about the Company's expansion plan, as well as their capacity to harvest enough shrimp for their future upcoming and future agreements. "Webster City has the capacity to produce approximately a million pounds fully built out," explained Delgado, adding that this will be complete by the second quarter of next year. "We will be oversubscribed at the end of the first quarter of next year," he said. "We're going to be adding 80,000 square feet, which will triple the size of the Texas facility, and we're going to add another 80,000 square feet in Webster City, which will increase that capacity by 25%."
Jolly then asked about a recent announcement detailing the Company's appointment of Rafael Zelaya as their new Vice President of Production. "Rafael is basically a 30 year veteran of the industry who just brings a wealth of knowledge," said Delgado.
"Where are we at in the process of uplisting to the Nasdaq?" asked Jolly. "The Nasdaq uplist is critical to the company's expansion plans," said Delgado. "We have spoken to a significant number of institutional investors who have all expressed an interest," he continued. "Unfortunately, as an institutional investor they cannot do that when we're on the OTC," said Delgado.
"The one thing that has held us up is that we have a Series A that needs to be converted back into common shares into the company, which we believe will be completed by next Monday," shared Delgado. "If we get approval, we think we will be able to uplist by January. If we don't get approval, we will have to go through the registration process," he explained. "This is very critical for bringing in significant institutional investors into the company."
"Will you have to do some sort of reverse split?" asked Jolly. "Yes," said Delgado. "Unfortunately, I don't think our value is being unlocked here at the OTC level," he said. "I think once we do move, the underlying value of the company will be unlocked at that time."
To close the interview, Delgado shared that the Company is also considering an expansion into Europe based on significant interest in that area. He also encouraged listeners and shareholders to keep up to date on the Company's current and upcoming projects as they continue to build on the potential of their one-of-a-kind technology.
