  • Consolidation of operations will reduce operating expenses by $2-$3 million annually
  • In process to engage investment bank for strategic alternatives

TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2024 / Upexi, Inc. (NASDAQ:UPXI) (the "Company" or "Upexi"), a multi-faceted Amazon and Direct-to-Consumer ("DTC") brand owner and innovator in aggregation, today announced that the strategic initiative to reduce operational and general and administrative expenses through the consolidation and streamlining of operations have been completed. Management expects that these initiatives will reduce overall expense by $2 to $3 million dollars per year, with minimal impact to operations.

Additionally, management and the Board of Directors are exploring strategic alternatives for the Company to maximize current and future shareholder value. The Company is in the process of engaging with an Investment Bank to assist with potential alternatives that include acquisition, merger, reverse merger, sale of assets, licensing and/or royalty transactions. While the Company continues to manage operating expenses and exploring the monetization of its assets, management is also focused on the reduction of debt while maintaining a core profitable business that management can build on in the future.

Additionally, GBQ Partners LLC ("GBQ") was appointed by the Audit Committee as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, to audit the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2023 and 2024.

Upexi has not set a deadline or definitive timetable for the completion of the strategic alternatives review process, and there can be no assurance that this process will result in any transaction or particular outcome. The Company does not intend to comment further unless and until the Board has approved a specific course of action or the Company has otherwise determined that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
