CANADA CANNABIS INVESTMENT SERIES – part three.
As announced last week, four significant Canada focused public cannabis companies are to report earnings and issue other reports, especially post-legalization commentaries --- Aurora Cannabis Inc., Tilray Inc Cronos Group Inc., and Canopy Growth Corp. Today’ public company review is Cronos Group Inc.
Cronos Group Inc., formerly known as PharmaCan Capital Corp., is a principal investment firm. The firm seeks to invest in companies either licensed or actively seeking a license, to produce medical marijuana according to Canada's Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. Cronos Group Inc. was incorporated in January 2013 and is based in Toronto, Canada with an additional office in Toronto, Canada.
Cronos Group Inc. (CRON) $8.12
earnings report: CRON reports Q3 revs of CAD 3.76 mln vs. $1.314 mln last year and two-analyst estimate of CAD 3.56 mln, Q3 GAAP loss per share of CAD 0.04 vs. CAD 0.01 last year and two-analyst estimate of - CAD 0.02
overview: CROM reported that 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. 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.
The Company continues to see strong growth in cannabis oil sales, which represented 29% of total revenue in the third quarter of 2018.
commentary: CROM has a $1.45 billion valuation with revenue of only $6.96 million. With a negative cash flow, CROM is a risk that should be avoided. As for profits with its current business model – it will never happen.
