Our customers in the metal industry have increased their electricity usage over the past few months and most of them plan on fully utilising their contracts later this year. At the same time, demand for metals has improved to previous levels. The price of aluminium has increased by approximately 60% from pandemic lows, averaging USD 2,100 per ton during the first quarter and currently just under USD 2,500 per ton. Sales to data centres have also increased during recent months and are expected to reach record levels this year. Simultaneously, electricity prices on European markets have been increasing.

We continue to place great emphasis on paying down debt, with net debt decreasing by about USD 68m from the start of the year.

Earnest money in the amount of US$250,000 has been deposited pending completion of due diligence to include title search, survey, and on-site property inspection. Subject to completion of due diligence on or before June 11, 2021, the earnest money will become non-refundable, and the purchase will be scheduled for closing, with final payments for the property payable on or before December 11, 2021. Land Planning and Engineering Firms have been engaged by the Company. Immediately following the June 11th due-diligence completion date, the Company will be coordinating with the City Planners, Building Department, and its own consultants to establish a detailed land use plan from which to efficiently stage development of both properties totaling approximately 220 acres.

Hemp-Based Sustainable Community and Colorado Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone WSRC and Global Hemp Group Inc. are preparing to build a hemp-based “Sustainable Community” from the ground up, strategically located in a beautiful part of northwestern Colorado, a location in great need of affordable housing. The project will utilize hemp from its eco-friendly farm processed into carbon neutral/negative building materials at its nearby industrial campus. The hemp-tech “campus” will serve as incubator for the development and production of new hemp-tech intellectual property and will also serve to showcase best-in-class carbon reducing building technologies. This unique initiative will be an open invitation to collaborate with leading hemp-tech R&D scientists, academic partners, community stakeholders, and hemp-tech start-up entrepreneurs from around the world. Our ultimate Corporate Vision is contributing towards the development of a zero-carbon footprint living environment supportive of a healthy community model for the future. In order to achieve this vision, the Company will become a leader in the establishment of a “Gold Standard” in hemp-tech building sciences. We intend to prove this model out and then help others world-wide do the same, by securing strategic vertical integration from growing hemp and processing it into various industrial, value-added marketable products for the massive untapped North American hemp building market and beyond. We believe in, are excited about and are championing hemp as a key to the carbon reducing building sciences revolution beginning to unfold, and to proudly offer products the planet desperately requires to win the war on global warming.
