VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (CSE:N) (FRANKFURT:M5BQ) (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) is pleased to announce that it has achieved record monthly sales and traffic for the month of June. The total unaudited sales as reported by the Company (including shipping revenues and after discounts and refunds) were C$1,349,545 in June 2017 compared to C$1,108,034 in May 2017, a 21.8% increase.
The month-on-month increase in revenue was achieved across the large network of sites operated by Namaste which all showed higher conversion rates. The increase in revenue is particularly pleasing as typically revenue is soft during the summer months. Namaste Vapes and Everyonedoesit showed good progress in conversion rates and average order value which were drivers of revenue growth. Australian Vaporizers benefited from an already high conversion rate which increased to 4.5% for the month.

Namaste has implemented proprietary machine learning algorithms on several of its major sites that adjust website content and product listings ‘on-the-fly’ based on user behavior. These sites have seen substantial increases in conversion rates as a result and Namaste plans on launching the same technology throughout their platform.
At the end of June the Company granted 1,725,000 options to staff and consultants. The options will vest quarterly over a period of two years and are exercisable for five years at an exercise price of $0.25.
Sean Dollinger, President and CEO of Namaste comments: “We’re very excited to see amazing results in June sales due to of all the hard work from our management team in implementing innovative strategies to increase sales organically. The implementation of machine learning to our platform has had immediate positive results. We expect to see similar results once this technology is launched throughout our platform. We look forward to continued growth as well as expansion into new markets and product categories.”
