iFabric Corp Reports Results for Its Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended June 30, 2020

MARKHAM, ON / ACCESSWIRE / August 13, 2020 / iFabric Corp. (“iFabric” or the “Company”) (TSX:IFA), today announced its financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2020.

“I am pleased to report that our Intelligent Fabrics Division achieved record revenues in the quarter, which in turn allowed the iFabric group as a whole to report a revenue increase of 41% compared to the previous year, despite extremely adverse current retail conditions,” stated Hylton Karon, President and CEO of iFabric. “Following the recent successful testing of our PROTX2 technology against the COVID-19 causing virus, we are currently experiencing an unprecedented level of inquiries for our textile technologies, finished performance apparel and protective garments. We are also starting to see a modest rebound in Intimate Apparel orders as a result of the reopening of retail stores and we are launching our own performance and protective apparel brand in the fall. According, I am confident that iFabric has entered into a period of sustainable growth,” concluded Hylton Karon.


During the third quarter of 2020, the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) had significant positive and negative impacts on the Company’s operations during the quarter.

In the Intelligent Fabric division, revenues increased by 215% due to the following factors:

  • Commencement in shipments of personal protective equipment (PPE) for sale to the US market.

  • A rebound in chemical sales in Asia following successful testing of the ability of PROTX2 to deactivate the COVID-19 causing virus.

  • The near normalization in the supply of products from China, which resulted in the receipt of delayed shipments of finished performance apparel for a major Canadian retailer.

In the Intimate Apparel division, revenues decreased by 78% as a result of increased COVID-19 infections in the US and Canada, which in turn resulted in the continuance of lockdowns and social distancing measures. Major retailers remained closed for most of the quarter and even after reopening towards the end of the quarter, did not experience a measurable rebound in sales as many of their regular customers continued to remain housebound. In addition, Amazon (a major customer of the division) restricted shipments to what they deemed as essential goods.

In response to these events, the Company has developed a number of comprehensive and evolving operational and risk management strategies to support the business for a future rebound in sales, particularly in its Intelligent Fabrics division.

The management of iFabric is of the opinion that it has made adequate provision in the Interim Financial Statements for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2020, for all potential impairment to the Company’s assets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These adjustments did not have a material effect on the financial position of iFabric as at June 30, 2020.
