High Standard Health Care specializes in procuring personal protective equipment (“PPE”) including but not limited to respiratory masks, hand sanitizer, gowns, infrared thermometers and face shields and has been active in procurement during COVID-19 for hospitals, municipalities, long-term care facilities, fire departments and police departments.

This order was delivered late April 2020 and re-orders continue. High Standard Health Care works with trusted supply partners globally that provide favorable terms and real time shipments during a time where PPE is scarce and difficult to procure. During the first two months of operations High Standard Health Care generated approximately $4 million in purchase orders with a gross margin of approximately 40%.

The Company cautions revenue and net income numbers have not yet been audited and are based on reports generated by High Standard Health Care management.
The Company is in the process of conducting normal course due diligence, reviewing High Standard Health Care form an organizational, legal, operational, financial and management standpoint. High Standard Health Care has existing relationships with China based manufacturers who supply the PPE products.
