As noted above, TRTC just announced it has purchased a retail property in downtown Las Vegas, located at 121 North Fourth Street. In all, the chart shows 21% added to share values of the listing over the past month of action, but that move comes in the context of a larger bearish trend.
In addition, the name has witnessed a pop in interest, as transaction volume levels have recently pushed 66% above its longer-run average levels.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech, stated, “We remain committed to growing our footprint in Nevada, which remains a lucrative market for the cannabis sector. The building is located in the heart of the booming Downtown Las Vegas trade area, an area in which we did not previously have a presence but which benefits from high foot traffic. Last year, 32 percent of the visitors to Las Vegas visited the downtown area. Of those, 59 percent said the main reason was to visit the Fremont Street Experience. We are pleased to have secured this building, which has great street-front visibility, and expect that, once it has been rebranded and fully-licensed under our recognizable Blüm brand, it will contribute meaningfully to the Company’s revenue growth.”
Now commanding a market cap of $157.33M, TRTC has a significant war chest ($5.2M) of cash on the books, which compares with about $6M in total current liabilities.
