The Scout Guide gives St. Louisans a resource to identify the “best of local,” which is now more important than ever as we continue to navigate this pandemic.

The Guide breathes life into the stories of entrepreneurs, artists, restauranteurs, and health/wellness providers throughout Saint Louis, showcasing the area’s vibrancy, resiliency, and creativity.”

— Stacey Goltermann

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — The Scout Guide Saint Louis, a city-guide publication featuring a curated selection of the best St. Louis entrepreneurs, business owners, artists, health/wellness providers, and more, launches V4 in October, marking the fourth year of publishing for the Saint Louis branch of The Scout Guide under editor and owner, Stacey Goltermann. The 2021 release of V4 marks an important opportunity for the region to shop and support local businesses as they continue to recover from the pandemic.

The Scout Guide Saint Louis is a major connector between the “best of local” and the Saint Louis community, helping people find the unique and special offerings in our city. In addition to the print edition, The Scout Guide features scouted businesses on a digital lifestyle guide, which launched in 2020 to provide opportunities for businesses to share important information and showcase their offerings to a wider national audience during the pandemic. The Scout Guide blog and social media platforms round out the effort to amplify these one-of-a-kind local businesses.

“This year we had interest from the widest variety of industries yet…and members wanting to collaborate for exposure,” said Goltermann. “The Guide breathes life into the stories of entrepreneurs, artists, restauranteurs, and health/wellness providers throughout Saint Louis, showcasing the area’s vibrancy, resiliency, and creativity. This year, my passion for helping businesses thrive takes on new meaning as we emerge from the pandemic. We’ve blurred the lines between former issues’ members and V4 members so that more connections can be made throughout 2021 and beyond. It’s all about helping the community.”

The Scout Guide Saint Louis V4 features 62 scouted businesses across a wide range of industries from home decor and real estate to dining, healthcare, interior design, marketing, and entertainment. With each new volume, the guide has become a first stop for Saint Louisans looking for a trusted vendor.

Goltermann noted that this year saw a surge in wellness and healthcare members, a trend she attributes to the lack of self-care people experienced during the pandemic. In addition, the spirit of St. Louis shone brightly as event companies across the region collaborated on a spread to emphasize creation instead of competition—and help each other succeed.

“In a world that is increasingly becoming focused on buying from huge corporations that offer the highest level of convenience, it’s important to learn about our small business owners,” said Scout Guide Associate Editor Amy Jo Mitchell. “While people support the dreams of these talented entrepreneurs, they reap the ultimate benefit of living in a more economically stable, vibrant community.”

The Scout Guide Saint Louis adds new businesses to its roster every year with select brands that are committed to making a positive impact in the community. Goltermann and her team are dedicated to meeting members’ needs by publishing details on events, services, and products from the scouted network on the guide’s blog and social media platforms.

Company President and COO, Andrew Glashow, noted that “Our fiscal year started in quarantine, and ended with the explosive return of tourism to Las Vegas. Our Nevada team didn’t miss a beat, and consistently reached new heights month after month, adapting every step of the way. Oasis and City Trees established themselves as Las Vegas mainstays in this last year, and we’re well positioned to continue expansion in Nevada and beyond.”

“We’ve shown that we can rise to any occasion,” remarked Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Binder. “We’re entering fiscal year 2022 with a clear path to growth and the determination to take on any challenge put in front of us. We have set some lofty goals for this fiscal year and I’m confident with the team in place and the seeds we planted this past fiscal year we will achieve them .”

Branded product division, City Trees, underwent an extensive rebranding effort in September 2020, unveiling new packaging, brand material, and a revamped website including an indirect online ordering system. Since this endeavor, and the completion of the Company’s state-of-the-art extraction and conversion facility, the brand has seen significant growth of wholesale orders for its vape, concentrate, and tincture products. The brand also made its debut in New Mexico in May 2021, marking the first release of a CLS brand outside the state of Nevada. The continued improvement in revenue, margin, and market growth for CLS business entities is a testament to the success of the Company’s strategic path toward overall profitability.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled ($123,617) as compared to ($1,732,557) in the prior fiscal year. (Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain items as outlined in Table 1, Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.) Net loss was $15,890,514 for fiscal 2021 compared to $30,657,973 during the prior fiscal year.

On June 14, 2021, CLS settled their lawsuit with In Good Health and In Good Health executed a note for $3,000,000 to replace the In Good Health note that was impaired. In addition, CLS believes they have net operating losses to offset the income tax payable. These two items together decreased CLS’ working capital as of May 31, 2021 by $4,989,001. If CLS had not made these two adjustments, it would have had a positive working capital as of May 31, 2021 of $3,845,079.
