Although the U.S. is seeing a record number of COVID-19 vaccinations, with 4.6 million administered on Saturday alone, the nation is still seeing an uptick in cases. And of particular concern among health experts is the recent increase in cases among teens and children.
Stocks traded higher Friday in another record-setting day on Wall Street, with a batch of stronger-than-expected economic data and corporate earnings results helping fuel a risk rally.
Picture 1 Starting this month, TAAT™ will begin to fulfill a USD $1 million / CAD $1.25 million purchase order from Dallas-based WWV, who is to distribute TAAT™ Original, Smooth, and Menthol to retailers across the United States alongside its current offerings in the tobacco alternatives category LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TAAT™ LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS LTD. (CSE: TAAT) (OTCQX: TOBAF) (FRANKFURT: 2TP2) (the “Company” or “TAAT™”) is pleased to announce that Worldwide Vape Distribution (“WWV”) has placed a wholesale order of TAAT™ Original, Smooth, and Menthol for delivery to its warehouse facility in Dallas, Texas valued at USD $1 million (approximately CAD $1.25 million). This order, which is to be fulfilled in batches over the course of 2021, consists of equal quantities of each TAAT™ variety packaged in the industry-standard format of master cases assembled on shipping pallets for wholesale distribution. After launching TAAT™ at retail in Ohio in Q4 2020, the Company has leveraged a statewide distribution network to place the product in tobacco points of sale, which has resulted in an average of approximately ten new store placements per week. In February 2021, the Company made TAAT™ available in other U.S. markets by launching an e-commerce portal through which the majority of smokers aged 21+ in the United States can purchase individual flavours of TAAT™ by the carton for home delivery. The Company anticipates that this wholesale order from WWV can lead to growth of TAAT™’s market footprint in its second full calendar quarter of availability at retail. In a press release dated July 7, 2020, the Company announced WWV as its first distribution partner in the United States, with access to more than 10,000 retail stores across 38 U.S. states through direct and indirect relationships. WWV has an influential position in the category of alternatives to tobacco, representing a large portfolio of firms who manufacture hardware and supplies for electronic cigarettes. In addition to its network of retailers, WWV has an online storefront through which it carries a selection of electronic cigarette hardware and related accessories, “e-liquid” cartridges, and disposable units. Because a substantial segment of electronic cigarette users are tobacco smokers aged 21+, the Company is confident that its line of tobacco-free and nicotine-free combustible products could be aligned with the interests of the customer bases of both WWV and the retailers in its network.

Please access SEDAR or the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website for a version of this press release containing all published media. TAAT™ will begin to fulfill WWV’s purchase order starting in late April 2021, prioritizing different varieties based on predicted demand in each market as determined by WWV. At the option of WWV, the Company may dispatch partial shipments directly to WWV’s affiliated distributors to reduce lead times for deliveries to tobacco retailers in select regions. The Company intends to collaborate with WWV to align distribution initiatives with promotional campaigns in new markets to gain awareness of TAAT™ among smokers aged 21+. WWV Chief Executive Officer Muhammad Abbas commented, “Even before the market-ready iteration of TAAT™ had been fully developed last summer, I saw its potential as a better alternative to a product consumed by over a billion people worldwide on a regular basis. In the vaping business, it is common for smokers aged 21+ to try electronic cigarettes as a substitute for smoking tobacco. However, we are regularly told about how they miss the sensation of igniting a cigarette, tasting and smelling the tobacco as it burns, seeing the smoke as they exhale, and flicking ashes in between drags. With our nationwide reach, we could not be more proud to place an order of this size with an objective of being one of the catalysts in distributing TAAT™ to retail stores in several new U.S. markets.” TAAT™ Chief Executive Officer Setti Coscarella commented, “After seeding interest from smokers aged 21+ for a matter of months now, we have started to notice some patterns in terms of the flow of interest from smokers asking retailers for TAAT™, who then go on to ask their respective wholesalers for the product. Although we have seen demand from all over the United States, we recognize the need to strategically identify which markets we will enter next. One prerequisite for doing so is securing distribution, and after discussions with WWV’s management team we have determined that they can get us into retailers in several of our high-priority markets. We are honoured that WWV was not only confident enough in TAAT™ for them to become our first distribution partner well in advance of the product launch, but also for them to have placed a seven-figure order of TAAT™ right at the outset of doing business. We look forward to working with WWV to grow our presence in the USD $814 billion tobacco industry as we lay the groundwork to build upon our success to date.” On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company, TAAT™ LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS LTD. “Setti Coscarella” Setti Coscarella, CEO and Director For further information, please contact: TAAT™ Investor Relations1-833-TAAT-USA (1-833-822-8872)firstname.lastname@example.org THE CANADIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE (“CSE”) HAS NOT REVIEWED AND DOES NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THIS RELEASE, NOR HAS OR DOES THE CSE’S REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER.

(Bloomberg) -- Website-hosting service Squarespace Inc. moved ahead with plans for a direct listing, joining a cadre of technology-oriented companies that didn’t need to raise money in a traditional initial public offering.Squarespace spelled out its plans Friday in a filing in which it also disclosed details of its finances, including 28% growth in revenue last year. The filing confirms an earlier Bloomberg News report that Squarespace would follow a handful of other technology-based companies -- most recently cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase Global Inc. -- in picking a direct listing over an IPO.Squarespace is planning to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange, the choice for every major direct listing except Coinbase. While investment banks don’t underwrite offerings as they do in IPOs, they advise the company on the listing. Squarespace is working with with banks including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., according to its filing.In a direct listing, a company doesn’t raise fresh capital and existing investors can typically begin selling their shares on the first day of trading without the usual lockup period restrictions in an IPO. It can save on banking fees and the time spent on an investor roadshow.Roblox Corp., Palantir Technologies Inc. and Asana Inc. also have gone public through direct listings in the past year. Earlier listings by Spotify Technology SA and Slack Technologies Inc. helped trail-blaze the alternate route to public equity markets.Squarespace BackersLed by founder and Chief Executive Officer Anthony Casalena, Squarespace competes against publicly traded rivals Wix.com Ltd. and GoDaddy Inc., among others. The New York-based company is is backed by investors including General Atlantic, Index Ventures and Accel.“Squarespace has flourished by providing anyone a way to participate in the immense opportunity that comes from publishing and transacting on the internet,” Casalena said in a letter to investors included in the filing.The company, which is expanding beyond web hosting to e-commerce, was valued at $10 billion in March in a funding round. It said in January that it had confidentially submitted a draft filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.Revenue GainsStarted in 2004, Squarespace had 3.7 million unique subscriptions as of Dec. 31, according to its filing.Squarespace had a net income of about $31 million on revenue of $621 million last year, compared with $58 million on revenue of $485 million in 2019, according to its filing.Its e-commerce business had 2020 revenue of $143 million, a 78% increase over the previous year, according to the filing. Its growth plans include expanding it customer base -- especially internationally -- and deepening its commerce offerings.The company acquired restaurant-services provider Tock for more than $400 million in March. Squarespace paid a mix of cash and stock for the Chicago-based company, which provides technology for online reservations, takeout and other services. That followed 2019 deals for Unfold Creative LLC and Acuity Scheduling Inc.Acquisition StrategySquarespace will pursue strategic acquisitions to accelerate key platform, product and marketing initiatives, it said its filing.Casalena will continue to control the company through his 76% ownership of the company’s Class B shares, which carry 10 votes each compared with one each for the Class A shares that will be listed.A date for the Squarespace’s trading debut hasn’t been disclosed. The company plans for its shares to trade under the symbol SQSP.(Updates with CEO’s letter in seventh paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Alcoa Corp. gained the most in more than two years after reporting first-quarter earnings that beat analysts’ expectations, with aluminum prices surging and the company projecting further strength as economies reopen.Shares in the biggest U.S. maker of the metal climbed as much as 9.7% to the highest since November 2018. The stock gained 8.4% to $35.59 at 3:44 p.m. in New York.Alcoa was already on a roll before reporting earnings late Thursday, with shares jumping six-fold from a pandemic low last year. Aluminum demand is rising just as China, the largest producer of the metal, pushes to cut carbon emissions, spurring expectations the Asian nation will curb supply expansions. Alcoa told analysts Thursday it will continue to focus on paying down net debt with cash on hand, and that it expects to get within its target range this year.“With pricing tailwinds continuing, we expect Alcoa’s results to improve further,” David Gagliano, an analyst at BMO Capital Markets, said in a note to clients. “Alcoa is rapidly approaching the high end of its net debt target range, in turn opening the door for possible shareholder returns later in 2021 in our view.”The Pittsburgh-based company said in its earnings statement that it expects a strong 2021 based on continued economic recovery and increased demand for aluminum in all end markets. Alcoa Chief Executive Officer Roy Harvey said last month that China is taking meaningful steps to rein in production, calling it a “game-changer” for the industry after years of gluts.Benchmark aluminum prices surged 25% from the end of September through March, marking the biggest gain over that period since 2006.Alcoa reported earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of $521 million, topping the $450.8 million average of six analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg and the highest since 2018. Sales rose to $2.87 billion, compared with the $2.62 billion analysts had forecast.(Updates with share price movement and analyst comment)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
