Beat to General Quarters
We started off by noting that KSHB just hit the wires with the announcement of its financial results for its fiscal year 2018, for the period ended August 31, 2018.
KSHB has been through some pressure over the past week. But the news has helped to repair that damage and reset the action in terms of the past week’s performance. KSHB shares have been relatively flat over the past month of action, with very little net movement during that period.
Nick Kovacevich, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are exceptionally pleased with the financial results we achieved during the fiscal year with revenues of $52.1 million, representing 177% growth compared to approximately $18.8 million in fiscal 2017. Our strong revenue growth was the result of dramatic growth in our most critical markets, with growing customer numbers, an increasingly diversified offering and expanded facility capabilities. Our growth was further supported by an expanded global presence with recently-opened offices in Canada and China. While we are disappointed with the impact our dramatic growth has had on margins, we believe they are short-term consequences and we’re pleased to have already implemented several initiatives to improve margins on a go-forward basis.”
KushCo Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:KSHB) generated sales of $12.9M, according to information released in the company’s most recent quarterly financial report. That adds up to a sequential quarter-over-quarter growth rate of 24.5% on the top line. In addition, the company is battling some balance sheet hurdles, with cash levels struggling to keep up with current liabilities ($3.6M against $10.9M, respectively).
Pushing the barriers for global distribution, Phoenix Life Science International (PLSI) is the next cannabis play. Just think Canopy x 100, that is how big their plantation in the tropics will be. No lights, no green houses, just maximum growth + minimal cost = home run. Learn More Now!
