Tree of Knowledge International Corp (TOKI) reported revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2020 of $4.84 million, an increase of 83% when compared with the $2.65 million booked last year. Revenues for the third quarter increased 189% to $3.73 million (2019: $1.29 million). It was noted, “Revenue was significantly higher in the current quarter (289% increase), which is primarily attributed to the sale of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In response to the demand for PPE from various medical sectors struggling as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr. Michael Caridi, in his capacity as President of Tree of Knowledge International Corp.’s US subsidiary, Tree of Knowledge, Inc., sourced and provided PPE to a number of parties, however, the cost of providing the PPE has almost completely off-set the increase in revenue attributable to the sale of PPE.”
