Halfway through 2019, Koios is thrilled to provide an all-around positive update with respect to its operations. Koios’ products have increased in sales volume at its big box/grocery retailers. Additionally, Koios product sales volumes have increased both with its sports nutrition retailers and Amazon, and sell-through rates at specialty grocers and retailers is greater than the industry standard. The Company is presently undertaking efforts to revise its website to offer an improved e-commerce experience as well as an enhanced investor relations section. Koios is also in the process of procuring several distribution partners (including a third-party broker and co-packing vendors), though its focus remains on providing consistently good service to its current partners regardless of how much it scales upward. Finally, the Fit SodaTM product is being produced for wide-scale distribution outside of Denver, CO starting on Friday, July 19, 2019 . This production will prepare the Company for wide-scale distribution of Fit SodaTM nationwide in August of 2019.
VANCOUVER , July 17, 2019 /CNW/ – Koios Beverage Corp. (CSE: KBEV; OTC: KBEVF) (the “Company” or “Koios”) is pleased to provide a mid-2019 corporate update, reflecting a number of notable positive advances since its prior update on March 19, 2019 . For clarity, this update is segregated into five sections; Retailer Partnerships, Koios E-Commerce and IR Websites, Supply Chain Partner and Scalability Developments, Fit Soda Update, and Koios Financial Insights.
Koios’ products are primarily sold through the major retail channels of some of the biggest names in retail, in addition to Amazon, as well as a strong base of specialty grocers and retailers. Achieving distribution in a total of more than 4,300 stores in less than one year following a product’s launch is rarely seen for any new product line, with placement in national retailers typically taking several years to accomplish. While Koios is working with distributor agencies to expand its footprint with retailers, management is taking great caution to ensure growth does not occur too rapidly, as such growth may come at the expense of its current level of performance, and possibly damage its existing relationships. The Company’s primary focus remains on providing the highest quality of product and service to its current partners irrespective of the extent to which Koios scales upward.
Big Box Grocery: Koios products are currently stocked in 1,084 “big box” grocery retail locations across the United States . Sales of Koios products have doubled in volume, driven by a sales per-SKU (stock keeping unit) increase from 1.1 to 3.4 per SKU on average, per store per week, in this specific channel (based on data from the week ending June 30, 2019 ). Koios partnered with a major US-based food processing conglomerate during the period of Sunday, June 23, 2019 to Wednesday, June 26, 2019 , to demonstrate Koios products in over 600 of these “big box” retail grocery stores in which Koios products are sold, causing sales to triple in a two-week period. The Company plans to set up additional in-store demonstrations in many of the other “big box” retail locations to bolster volume. To date, Koios has a 98% on-time delivery rate within this channel.
Sports Nutrition Channels: Sales of Koios products have continually grown within its sports nutrition channels. In the first month selling ( February 2019 ), sales of Koios products have seen an increase in sales through the most recent month (ending June 7, 2019 ), representing a volume increase of approximately 108%. In this period, Koios products were added to more than 200 GNC franchise locations. Koios is actively seeking to enrich its relationships in this channel, working closely with its partners to create strategies to boost sales, as well as to utilize digital advertising and influencer efforts to grow its presence within this channel. Additionally, Koios attended GNC’s global franchise conference in June which provided useful insights about GNC and its partners, as well as strong networking opportunities.
Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”): Sales volume for Koios products has seen strong growth since May, both through Koios’ own portal on Amazon’s website, and through the Amazon storefront of WishingUWell, a Colorado -based e-commerce retailer for health and wellness products. Much of this growth can be attributed to Koios products being made available on Amazon’s Prime subscription service. The Company is working to optimize its Amazon storefront to drive additional sales, and to create cross-traffic and cross-selling opportunities. This optimization is expected to be completed by the end of August 2019 , having undergone revisions to ensure developments are being undertaken properly.
Specialty Grocery and Retail: Since launching, Koios has had its products stocked in several specialty grocery and retail stores, including food-service establishments such as gym snack bars, cafes, and restaurants. Its presence in these storefronts plays a vital role in the growth of the Koios brand name, as these independent and specialty businesses are often patronized by savvy and discriminating early adopters of innovative products. Sell-through rates in this channel continue to surpass industry standards, and Koios will continue to devote a healthy allocation of its resources to sustaining this performance.
Koios E-Commerce and IR Websites
In the past three months, Koios has commenced an extensive initiative to revise its digital platform with specific emphasis on full-featured e-commerce and investor relations sections. It is anticipated that a beta version of Koios’ digital platform will be live in mid-August 2019 .
E-Commerce: To date, Koios has accumulated a database of more than 8,000 customers through its e-commerce platform. With its revised platform, it will seek to capitalize on this customer base through a subscription service for Koios products. Additionally, a new shopping cart experience will be integrated, allowing for greater communication and an overall improved customer experience. The Fit SodaTM line of beverages will also be added to the e-commerce catalog.
Investor Relations: In an effort to provide better insights to Koios shareholders, the Company will also be enhancing the investor relations section of its digital platform by including live charts of Koios’ shares (on both the CSE and OTC exchanges), and audio recordings of quarterly conference calls. Additionally, monthly updates will be provided in this section, with an option to subscribe to an email newsletter for direct delivery of such updates.
Supply Chain Partner and Scalability Developments
Koios is in the process of procuring a relationship with a third-party broker of natural foods and beverages, for which it has narrowed down its search to two candidates. This broker will complement Koios’ existing sales team by facilitating new brand launches, in-store associate training, supervision of retail conditions, and execution of analytics and tracking programs. Moreover, with a third-party broker overseeing these responsibilities, the Company will be able to keep its focus on its own core competencies of developing Koios products and maintaining its robust supply chain, thus enabling greater scalability.
Koios has also continued to invest in its production capacity, which already meets retailers’ current demands, with its production standards boasting a lead time that is eight weeks shorter than traditional lead times, a 98% on-time delivery rate*, and sufficient flexibility to develop and produce new products. The Company has identified several new prospective partners across the United States for contract packaging (also known as “co-packing”), which will simplify Koios’ supply chain and improve its scalability, especially into new regions. Management anticipates that new co-packing relationships will be finalized and put into motion beginning in August and September of 2019.
Fit Soda Update
The Fit SodaTM beverage product will be produced for nationwide distribution beginning Friday, July 19, 2019 . Koios has received interest in distributing Fit SodaTM from distributors and direct-to-store delivery companies from across the United States . Based on pre-selling data and initial pre-orders, Koios anticipates Fit SodaTM could double sales volume in the first 90 days following its release. Fit SodaTM will be available in 400 retail stores across the United States no later than the end of September, 2019.
Koios Financial Insights
During the period of July 2018 to July 2019 , the Company was able to reduce its COGS (cost of goods sold) by approximately 13%, generating approximate blended gross profit margins of 32% to 43%. However, net profits have not been realized on account of the Company’s growth strategies, in which Koios continues to invest in driving top-line revenues, as well as expansion into additional retail outlets.
The Company has a year-end of May 31 . Its annual financial statements are currently being complied for the period of time from June 1, 2018 to May 31, 2019 and will be audited by Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton LaBonte LLP. The annual financial statements are due for filing by no later than September 30, 2019 . Some of the data contained in this press release will not be reflected in our annual financial statements, as the Company signed initial vendor agreements with retailers and the bulk of the product ordered by such retailers was not made available to customers in retail stores until April 1, 2019 . Retailers traditionally take approximately eight weeks to clear product through their distribution centres and to place goods on their shelves. Earnings from these vendor agreements will not be reflected until the next set of quarterly financial statements are prepared and filed, which is expected to occur by no later than October 30, 2019 .

About Fit SodaTM
Fit SodaTM has zero sugar, contains naturally-made electrolytes, and is infused with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Of the nine essential amino acids, three are BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. “Branched-chain” refers to the chemical structure of BCAAs, a structure which is found in protein-rich foods such as eggs, meat, and dairy products. They are also a popular supplement sold primarily in powder form.
The Fit SodaTM line of beverages is primarily focused on physical well-being, featuring blends that offer high levels of nutrients, amino acids, and electrolytes. It is also produced using only organic ingredients, without the use of any artificial preservatives, colours or flavours. The Company has developed a lineup of four unique Fit SodaTM flavours, which include Orange Creamsicle, Root Beer Vanilla Float, Black Cherry Cola and Sparkling Citrus.
Koios Chief Executive Officer Chris Miller commented on the appeal of Fit SodaTM as a natural and organic beverage, “Our society is experiencing huge demand for natural, organic foods and beverages, with the market for these products growing by an expected 70 per cent between 2016 and 2021” (Source: Packaged Facts, 2016)
At first, Fit SodaTM was only launched locally in the Denver, CO market, with an objective of using feedback from purchasers to influence changes in future iterations of the formula and packaging, as well as the taste, if need be. As a strategy for Fit SodaTM to deliver better value, Koios management made changes to the beverage’s packaging for messaging that the Company believes will resonate best with end consumers. Taking this “local-first” approach allowed Koios to build up an initial interest in Fit SodaTM, as well as to generate immediate revenues prior to conducting a full launch at a national level.

Small Cap Exclusive is owned and operated by JBN PARTNERS LLC, which is a US based corporation. We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (this “Article”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”).
We publish the Information on our website, smallcapexclusive.com and in newsletters, text message alerts, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer and / or third party paying us. Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”. This information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart. Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he will suffer trading losses if they purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer late in a Campaign. We are paid to advertise the Profiled Issuers, Koios Beverage Corp. Small Cap Exclusive has been hired by Koios Beverage Corp. for a period beginning on May 1, 2018 to publicly disseminate information about (KBEV) via website and email. We have been compensated $558,000. We will update any changes to our compensation. We own zero shares of (KBEV).
Third Parties paying us to market the Profiled Issuer we believe intend to sell their shares they hold while we tell investors to purchase during the Campaign. Koios Beverage Corp.. is a penny stock that was illiquid (little to no trading volume) prior to our Campaign, and therefore these securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profile Issuer will likely increase significantly because of the media exposure. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment.
The Information we publish in the Campaign is only a snapshot that provides only positive information about the Profiled Issuers. The Information consists of only positive content. We do not and will not publish any negative information about the Profiled Issuers; accordingly, investors should consider the Information to be one-sided and not balanced, complete, accurate, truthful and / or reliable. We do not verify or confirm any portion of the Information. We do not conduct any due diligence, nor do we research any aspect of the Information including the completeness, accuracy, truthfulness and / or reliability of the Information. We do not review the Profiled Issuers’ financial condition, operations, business model, management or risks involved in the Profiled Issuer’s business or an investment in a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
All information in our Campaign is publicly available information from 3rd party sources and / or the Profiled Issuers and/or the 3rd parties that hire us. We may also obtain the Information from publicly available sources such as the OTC Markets, Google, NASDAQ, NYSE, Yahoo, Bing, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Edgar database or other available public sources.
We select the stocks we profile and / or pick as we are compensated to advertise them. If an investor relies solely on the Information in making an investment decision it is highly probable that the investor will lose most, if not all, of his or her investment. Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision.
The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign. In certain cases, we are compensated by the Profiled Issuers, third party shareholders, and / or other parties related to the Profiled Issuers such as officers and/or directors who will derive a financial or other benefit from an increase in the trading price and/or volume of a Profiled Issuer’s securities.
We make no warranty and / or representation about the Information, including its completeness, accuracy, truthfulness or reliability and we disclaim, expressly and implicitly, all warranties of any kind, including whether the Information is complete, accurate, truthful, or reliable and as such, your use of the Information is at your own risk. The Information is provided as is without limitation.
We are not, and do not act in the capacity of any of the following; as such, you should not construe our activities as involving any of the following: an independent adviser or consultant; a fortune teller; an investment adviser or an entity engaging in activities that would be deemed to be providing investment advice that requires registration either at the federal and / or state level; a broker-dealer or an individual acting in the capacity of a registered representative or broker; a stock picker; a securities trading expert; a securities researcher or analyst; a financial planner or one who engages in financial planning; a provider of stock recommendations; a provider of advice about buy, sell or hold recommendations as to specific securities; or an agent offering or securities for sale or soliciting their purchase.
There are numerous risks associated with each Profiled Issuer and investors should undertake a full review of each Profiled Issuer with the assistance of their financial, legal, and tax advisers prior to purchasing the securities of any Profiled Issuer.
We are not objective or independent and have multiple conflicts of interest. The Profiled Issuers and parties hiring us have conflicts of interest. Third parties that have hired us and own shares will sell these shares while we tell investors to purchase, and this selling of the Profiled Issuer’s securities will likely cause investors to suffer losses.
Our publication of the Information involves actual and material conflicts of interest including but not limited to the fact that we receive monetary compensation in exchange for publishing the (favorable) Information about the Profiled Issuers; and we do not publish any negative information, whatsoever, about the Profiled Issuers; in addition to the fact that while we do not own the Profiled Issuer’s securities, the third parties that hired us do, and intend to sell all of these securities during the Campaign while we publish favorable information that instructs investors to purchase, and this selling of the Profiled Issuer’s securities will likely cause investors to suffer losses.
We are not responsible or liable for any person’s use of the Information or any success or failure that is directly or indirectly related to such person’s use of the Information because we have specifically stated that the information is not reliable and should not be relied upon for any purpose. We are not responsible for omissions and / or errors in the Information and we are not responsible for actions taken by any person who relies upon the Information.
We urge Investors to conduct their own in-depth investigation of the Profiled Issuers with the assistance of their legal, tax and / or investment adviser(s). An investor’s review of the Information should include but not be limited to the Profiled Issuer’s financial condition, operations, management, products and / or services, trends in the industry and risks that may be material to the profiled Issuer’s business and other information he and his advisers deem material to an investment decision. An investor’s review should include, but not be limited to a review of available public sources and information received directly from the Profiled Issuers or from websites such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, OTC Markets, NASDAQ, NYSE, www.sec.gov or other available public sources.
We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose my compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer. We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell my own shares. The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns.
Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
When 3rd parties that hire us acquire, purchase and / or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit themselves to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and may fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is a SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions.
If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and/or government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies.
The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org. You should always be cognizant that the Profiled Issuers may not be current in their reporting obligations with the SEC and the OTC Markets and/or have negative legends and designations at otcmarkets.com.
No securities commission or other regulatory authority in Canada or any other country or jurisdiction has in any way passed upon this information and no representation or warranty is made by to that effect. The information is not a substitute for independent professional advice before making any investment decisions.
