A key decision for active traders in the cannabis patch will be how to view the recent capital raise by Medmen Enterprises Inc (OTCMKTS:MMNFF). Specifically, the company just announced that it has entered into a letter of engagement with Canaccord Genuity Corp., under which Canaccord has agreed to purchase, as lead underwriter and sole bookrunner, on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters 17,648,000 units of the Company, on a “bought deal” basis pursuant to the filing of a short form prospectus, subject to all required regulatory approvals, at a price per Unit of $6.80 for gross proceeds of $120,006,400.
According to the release, “The Company has agreed to grant the Underwriters an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 2,647,200 of the Units at the Issue Price, exercisable in whole or in part, at any time on or prior to the date that is 30 days following the closing of the Offering. The over-allotment option may be exercised to acquire Units, Class B Shares, and/or Warrants (as defined below) of the Company. If this option is exercised in full, an additional $18,000,960 will be raised pursuant to the Offering and the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering will be approximately $138,007,360.”

As noted above, MMNFF just announced a bought deal capital raise providing as much as an extra $120M in cash. It is dilutive, but the question is all about what the market will assign in terms of assumptions around ROI on new capital.
We think the dip seen on Friday could be an opportunity given the company’s tremendous recent moves to capture future potential market share in the evolving US cannabis marketplace.
Recent action has seen a bit less than -10% stripped out of shares of the company during the trailing month. What’s more, the name has benefitted from a jump in recent trading volume to the tune of exceeding 160% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.
Earning a current market cap value of $353.55M, MMNFF has about $12.2M in cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to a mountain of over $86M in total current liabilities. The company has been pulling in significant revenues, with over $7M in Q1 of this year, representing over 630% quarterly y/y growth on the top line. As more color becomes clear on the name, we will review the situation and update our take.
