Three months ago, CRL announced the hiring of a new CEO, Mr. Jean-Charles Phaneuf – who has a track record in investment banking and tech development, involving M&As, SaaS VoIP and artificial intelligence (AI).
As the new CEO, Phaneuf declared that CRL was “on the cusp of unlocking substantial value for its shareholders with all the technical ingredients to capitalize on its suite of predictive AI technology.”
“My top priority in the first 100 days is to clean up the balance sheet,” Phaneuf confirmed to Equity Guru’s Jody Vance, “Too much debt from my point of view, and I want to resolve that.”
“The last 90 days has been like training for a marathon,” stated Phaneuf in the April 14, 2021 update, “We announced an oversubscribed Private Placement of $5,601,288, a $2,000,000 Line of Credit, $250,000 in Convertible Debentures, and converted $1,491,000 of corporate debt.”
During Phaneuf’s tenure, CRL has hired new senior executives in business development, corporate marketing, technical operations, and product management.
