ARCpoint’s President and CEO, John Constantine commented “Our Company has been a tremendous financial beneficiary of the COVID pandemic. The increased revenue from COVID testing and the successful completion of the previously announced reverse take-over transaction have helped us amass a cash balance of approximately US$11 million as of September 30, 2022. In turn, we are using these funds to significantly improve our traditional core business services and offerings in drug and alcohol testing and expand into new areas of business, such as opiate-addiction therapy. Throughout 2022, we have all seen a significant change in how we deal with COVID and how it impacts us day to day. This is having near term effects on our operating performance. However, we strongly believe that the investments we are making today will significantly benefit our shareholders going forward”.

Our two investments in 2022, MyARCpoint Labs portal for consumer testing, and Total Reporting for our Business to Business portal continue to be developed on track and on time for release in Q1, 2023.

Total Reporting was acquired earlier in 2022 and is on track for testing in Q4, 2022. Deployment of these portals to our franchisee system will allow ARCpoint’s franchisees to market more services, such as background checks and employer physicals through a more efficient platform.

Business Management:

The time to open for our franchisees has been reduced from 303 days historically to 266 days YTD shortening the ramp up of our franchisees to joining ARCpoint.
