For the quarter ended December 2019, the company posted a 115% jump in revenue to nearly C$1.5 million, compared to C$692,000 in the same period a year earlier.
Brazil-based Verde’s full-year revenue for 2019 was just over C$6 million, a 344% increase from 2018 levels.
“As we announced in September 2019, our sales target for 2020 is set at R$32 million (C$10.6 million),” CEO Cristiano Veloso said in a statement.
“If successful, we will deliver a 76% growth year-on-year and expect to generate our maiden net profit. We are working hard to deliver this result and are confident that every lesson learned in 2019 is being deployed to achieve another year of significant growth.”
Verde’s leading product is a multinutrient potassium fertilizer marketed in Brazil under the K Forte name and on international shelves as Super Greensand.

During the fourth quarter, the company sold 32,221 tons of product, compared to 20,641 in the same period in 2018.
Verde swung to a profit in the fourth quarter, posting C$79,000 in income compared to the C$636,000 loss it saw during 4Q 2018.
