VANCOUVER, July 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Peekaboo Beans Inc. (TSX.V: BEAN; OTCBB: PBBSF) ("Peekaboo Beans" or the "Company") is honoured to have outfitted the Prime Minister of Canada's children for Canada's 150th Birthday.
The Prime Minister's office asked Peekaboo Beans to exclusively design apparel for Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau's three children whose ages range from three to nine for Canada Day celebrations. The children were photographed in Peekaboo Beans clothing with Prince Charles, Bono and the Edge from the band U2 during the Canada Day festivities held in Ottawa on July 1st, 2017.

"Peekaboo Bean's over 1,200 Stylists who sell our children's apparel were very excited about this opportunity and it reinforces Peekaboo Beans as a leading brand of Canadian children's apparel", stated Ms. Traci Costa, CEO of Peekaboo. "I sincerely wish to thank Sophie Grégoire Trudeau for her support of Canadian fashion and socially impactful companies like Peekaboo Beans", added Ms. Costa.
Peekaboo Beans expects that sales for the quarter ending June 30, 2017 (unaudited) will result in the Company's strongest third quarter sales in its eleven-year history. The anticipated third quarter growth is a result of the addition of new Stylists and the maturation of existing Stylists as a result of the Company's training initiatives.
Additionally, the Company has increased its Stylist recruitment by 64% to over 1,200 Stylists by the end the third quarter, compared to the previous year. The Company attributes the increased recruitment of Stylists to the successful "Facebook Live" events that the Company held during recent months and which generated over 30,000 views by existing and potential Stylists. In addition, Peekaboo Beans expects to realize a significant improvement in margin for the quarter ending June 30, 2017, compared to the same period last year.
Moving forward into Q4, Peekaboo Beans is mobilizing its U.S. expansion efforts and is excited to launch its Back-to-School collection in July, which historically generates the highest engagement from Stylists and customers.
The Company is holding its inaugural quarterly conference call on August 30, 2017 to discuss third quarter results and to provide an update on the Company's expansion into the U.S.
