Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ:CRON) Stabilizes After Reporting Monster Growth Data

Published

on

Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ:CRON) just put out its Q3 2018 revenues, totaling $3.8 million, as compared to $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, representing an increase of $2.4 million, or 186%. Kilograms of cannabis sold increased 213% in the third quarter from 164 kilograms in the third quarter of 2017 to 514 kilograms in the third quarter of 2018. According to the company, the main drivers associated with the increase in revenues and the increase in kilograms sold are increased production capacity and increased volumes sold through the domestic medical and international channels, as well as initial shipments into the domestic adult-use recreational market.

“We are encouraged with our third quarter results, which reflect the meaningful progress we are making on our strategic initiatives. In the quarter, we announced a number of landmark partnerships to expand our reach beyond the flower and beyond Canada and launched our second differentiated recreational cannabis brand,” said Mike Gorenstein , CEO of Cronos Group. “The recent legalization of cannabis sales for adult recreational use in Canada was a watershed moment for our industry and our Company. We are energized by the opportunities this creates for Cronos Group in Canada and look forward to leading the industry forward responsibly.”

Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ:CRON) casts itself as an investment firm in the biopharmaceutical space, with a strong emphasis on medical marijuana and cannabis-related research and products. In short, the company seeks to invest in other companies, either licensed or actively seeking a license, to produce medical marijuana pursuant to Canada’s Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).

The firm typically invests in companies based in Canada. The firm is primarily an equity investor, may also advance debt as appropriate. It seeks to make minority investments with appropriate governance and shareholder rights. The firm seeks board representation consistent with the size of the investment but does not need control.

Cronos Group Inc. was incorporated in January 2013 and is based in Toronto, Canada with an additional office in in Toronto, Canada.

According to company materials, “Cronos Group is a globally diversified and vertically integrated cannabis company with a presence across four continents. The Company operates two wholly-owned Canadian licensed producers regulated under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations:  Peace Naturals Project Inc., which was the first non-incumbent medical cannabis license granted by Health Canada, and Original BC Ltd., which is based in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia.  The Company has multiple international production and distribution platforms including in Germany, Poland, Israel, and Australia.  The Company intends to continue to rapidly expand its global footprint as it focuses on building an international iconic brand portfolio and develop disruptive intellectual property.  Cronos Group is committed to building industry-leading companies that transform the perception of cannabis and responsibly elevate the consumer experience.”

 

Well, Then, What’s Next?

As we discussed earlier, CRON recently announced pushed out its Q3 numbers.

While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action CRON shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -4% on above-average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities.

“As excited as we are about this milestone and our participation in this new market, it’s truly just the beginning. Cronos Group is building an innovative global cannabinoid company. The opportunities for our Company extend across the globe as regulations evolve and markets open. The recent initiatives we launched with Gingko Bioworks and Technion are great examples of how we intend to use innovation and our growing intellectual property portfolio to develop new applications for cannabinoids across a range of categories. We are proud of all that we accomplished this quarter, and we are focused on executing on our strategic plan to drive growth and value creation for our shareholders, partners, and consumers,” concluded Mike Gorenstein.

Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ:CRON) has a strong balance sheet, with cash levels far exceeding current liabilities ($89.6M against $0).
