GBLT ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER 2023 FINANCIAL RESULTS
GBLT Corp. has released its results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2023.
"Amidst the prevailing inflationary pressures and economic downturn experienced in Germany and across the European markets this past quarter, we remain focused on growing our high margin business lines, meeting the abundant demand of our solar solutions, and catering to the needs of our long-term retail distribution partners," said Dr. Thilo Senst, CEO of GBLT. "We have successfully diversified our distribution channels to provide Dr. Senst healthcare products online starting in June, and we are confident that this will provide a significant increase to our overall sales volume going forward. Furthermore, we have officially launched our GETEC solar business this past quarter, which aims to deliver comprehensive full service solar solutions including panel distribution, engineering, and installation to both commercial and residential customers. With the historically bad weather in Germany last quarter behind us, we look forward to driving our solar business in full force to meet the abundance of demand in the market today. By synergistically leveraging our enhanced online presence and our newly established full-scale solar solutions, despite economic downturn, we are confident that the year 2023 will be a historic year for GBLT financially as we bolster our high-margin products and increase our bottom-line profits."
