The last time we covered the name, the key story was about an eventual uplisting. According to its materials, that process entails a two-year audit of the Company’s financial statements and would be a piece of the puzzle in becoming a fully reporting public company with the intent of uplisting to a higher reporting exchange. “Our goal is to be a fully transparent reporting public company,” said the Company’s CEO, Donald Steinberg.
This new catalyst may support that effort to some extent, as it provides additional strength to the company’s asset base as well as a credible path to future revenues that are on a tangible calendar to post date. The question for the market will be about whether or not this form of the company narrative justifies the current market cap even in the best case scenario. We don’t necessarily have a view on that, but will continue to keep tabs on the story and update our take as this evolves.
According to the release, MCOA will invest up to $1 million in cash in a newly formed entity and receive 50% equity ownership and 50% share in net profits produced by the joint venture. Bougainville Ventures, Inc. will contribute its expertise in establishing facilities related to the production, processing and management for tenant growers utilizing an I-502 Tier 3 license, with leased property, established partnerships, licensing agreements and marketing relationships.
Donald Steinberg, MCOA President and CEO said, “We are looking forward to getting seed in the ground and ramping up this partnership with Andy Jagpal and Bougainville Ventures. This partnership further strengthens our supply chain and enables MCOA to produce the highest quality products at the lowest possible prices.”
“We couldn’t be happier than to have aligned ourselves with the outstanding team at MCOA,” said Jagpal, President of Bougainville Ventures, Inc. “With the management expertise that the highly skilled professionals at MCOA bring, we have insured the certainty of expanding our Washington State Greenhouse Campuses while achieving our revenue and profitability goals.”
Earning a current market cap value of $127.4M, MCOA has virtually no cash on the books, which stands against about $108K in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. The company is pre-revenue at this point. We will update the story again soon as developments transpire.
