Supreme Cannabis Company Inc (OTCMKTS:SPRWF) Finds Funding and Support in Concert

Published

on

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc (OTCMKTS:SPRWF) is another Canadian cannabis patch play to catch the “sell the news” bug following last week’s grand announcement of legal adult-use activity in Canada. We all knew it was coming. And the space still got hyped into it. So, it should come as no surprise to see this reaction. That said, Supreme is likely one to watch in the aftermath of this “monetization” process.

To build that out further, the company just announced that, further to its news release dated September 27, 2018, the Company has completed its bought deal offering for gross proceeds of $100 million, including the exercise in full of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, comprised of 6.0% senior unsecured convertible debentures of Supreme Cannabis at the issue price of $1,000 per Debenture, with a syndicate of underwriters, co-led by GMP Securities L.P. and BMO Capital Markets, and including Cormark Securities Inc., Eight Capital, Beacon Securities Limited and P.I. Financial Corp.

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc (OTCMKTS:SPRWF) promulgates itself as a company that engages in the production of medical cannabis in Canada.

The company was formerly known as Supreme Pharmaceuticals Inc. and changed its name to The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. in December 2017. The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. was incorporated in 1979 and is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

The Company’s portfolio includes its wholly-owned subsidiary and flagship brand 7ACRES.

7ACRES is a federally licensed producer of cannabis operating inside a 342,000-square-foot facility in Kincardine, Ontario. 7ACRES is dedicated to providing consumers with a premium-quality product that recognizes its customers are informed, discerning and value a brand and culture that aligns with their principles. 7ACRES brand success has been reflected in provincial supply agreements, where 7ACRES’ product is consistently listed in the highest brand category available to recreational consumers.

The Company’s growing portfolio also includes an equity investment and long-term global distribution partnership with Lesotho-based Medigrow for the exporting of medical-grade cannabis oil.

The Supreme Cannabis Company has consistently set the standard for innovation in the sector, including the design of growing facilities and development of operational excellence metrics. We are confident that together with our flagship brand, proprietary technology and products, truly unique culture, and industry-leading team, we will deliver our shareholders consistent long-term value creation.

 

Aftermath

As noted above, SPRWF just announced that, further to its news release dated September 27, 2018, the Company has completed its bought deal offering for gross proceeds of $100 million, including the exercise in full of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, comprised of 6.0% senior unsecured convertible debentures of Supreme Cannabis at the issue price of $1,000 per Debenture, with a syndicate of underwriters, co-led by GMP Securities L.P. and BMO Capital Markets, and including Cormark Securities Inc., Eight Capital, Beacon Securities Limited and P.I. Financial Corp.

SPRWF has had a rough past five days of trading action, with shares sinking something like -26% in that time. It will be interesting to see if this news can help to shift that tone. So far, it has obviously helped to some extent, but not enough to repair recent damage.

According to the release, “The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering for the construction and development of its existing and planned facilities in Canada. This includes the Company’s facility in Kincardine, Ontario under construction and the development and construction of a facility on land purchased by the Company that is situated adjacent to such facility. The balance of the net proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes. In addition, the Company views the completion of the Offering as an important milestone in qualifying for graduation to the Toronto Stock Exchange alongside other leading mature licensed producers in the Canadian cannabis industry.”

Supreme Cannabis Company Inc (OTCMKTS:SPRWF) generated sales of $3.5M, 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 71.3% on the top line. In addition, the company has a strong balance sheet, with cash levels far exceeding current liabilities ($55.9M against $22.9M).

Published

on

The business guru has today disclosed details about its credit financing. According to its spokesperson, the company needs to complete the construction of a number of its business facilities. The facilities are in Ontario, Ancaster, and Phase 1a at Valleyfield, Quebec. Lately, the business has been reviewing some financial alternatives to see the ones to settle for.

The turn of events

In a statement, the company has revealed that the market conditions have been very dynamic and thus need from proper planning. It has, in the past, held discussions regarding some commercial bank facilities and equipment leasing in a bid to identify what would work. The company admits that the discussions were fruitful since it was able to chart the way forward. However, the main point of the discussion wasn’t arrived at. That was because most of the financing sources turned out to be inappropriate. The company says that most of them did not match the required timeframes. It says it had no otherwise but to start reviewing other alternatives.

Plans moving forward

The completion of these facilities is a costly undertaking, but the company seems quite determined.

An official working with The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings but who wanted his identity kept anonymous has made a point. He says that the company, at the moment, has no debt. However, it has about $56.7 million available in cash in Canada. It also has some $40.2 million that will take care of the company’s capital expenditures. The construction activities at the Ancaster are almost reaching completion according to sources. The business giant says that in a matter of about 6-weeks, it will have completed the construction activities here.

Green Organic Dutchman Holdings is optimistic it will get the financing that it requires. In that particular regard, it will channel the funds towards accelerating its commercial production. The goal is to increase its revenues by a significant margin.

So far, the company has gotten into several supply agreements. Some of them are with Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario. The deal is to engage in the distribution of products on a nationwide scale.

HEXO (OTCMKTS:HYYWF) Expects To Post Net Revenues Of $16.5 Million in Q4 2019 And $48.5 Million For FY 2019

Published

on

HEXO (OTCMKTS:HYYWF) expects to post net revenues of up to $16.5 million in Q4 2019. The company is hoping to post revenues of up to $48.5 million for FY 2019. It has withdrawn the previously announced outlook for FY 2020.

Q4 results below the estimates

Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hexo, Sebastien St-Louis, said the net revenues of Q4 missed the forecast mainly because of reduced sales. He said the company is not happy with the results and will change operational and sales strategies to boost sales in the future.

The company is engaged in re-configuring the operations in the last quarter and would focus on high selling strains. Hexo began a new sales strategy to improve performance in the coming quarters.

Withdraws outlook for FY2020

A delay in getting the nod from government departments for the products extracted from cannabis together with store rollouts at a slower pace and pricing pressures are felt nationwide. A sluggish opening of retail stores has limited the reach of Hexo to significant customers in the market. It also sees an unpredictability to ensure the availability of cannabis-derived products because of delays in jurisdictional decisions and uncertainty in regulatory approvals in Canada. Therefore, Hexo decided to remove the previously announced forecast for FY 2020.

CEO said it is painful to withdraw the outlook for FY 2020. The company decided to withdraw the outlook because of the prevailing uncertainties in the market. Hexo is evaluating its operations and plans to improve efficiencies and achieve profitability. The company is focusing on strategic priorities to offer rich dividends to the shareholders in the long-term.

Hagens Berman alerts investors

Hagens Berman warned investors of an investigation into Hexo on violation of security laws. The firm informed investors to file a loss-form to find out if they qualify to recoup investment losses they have suffered in Hexo. The investigation team will check whether Hexo has misled the investors by exaggerating about its business model and the sales of cannabis products through the retailers.

Chief Finance Officer of Hexo, who joined the company a few months back, resigned abruptly. Following the exit of CFO, Christopher Carey, an analyst at Bank of America, has downgraded the stock to underperform.
