For those looking for new hot names in the cannabis space, you could do a lot worse than CannaRoyalty Corp (OTCMKTS:ORHOF). Shares of the stock broke down on Wednesday and then closed strong. That action came in response to the company’s announcement of financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018. Revenues were $6.6 million as compared to $744,302, an increase of 790%; gross margin was $298,619 as compared $128,010, an increase of 133%; and operating expenses were $10.1 million as compared to $2.8 million, an increase of 261%.
Marc Lustig, CEO of Origin House, commented, “Last quarter, we stated that after a substantial period of building a foundation, Origin House was at the beginning of a multi-period, sustainable acceleration in revenue growth. Year-to-date, we generated record revenue, completed four transformational acquisitions and are well-capitalized to continue growing. We expect to continue delivering strong revenue growth throughout Q4, 2019 and beyond, as RVR and 180 Smoke are integrated and as we further leverage our brand development and support platform. Our view is that the next 12 months are going to be critical in determining the winners in the cannabis space. Origin House is positioned as a premier operator in the largest and most dynamic cannabis market in the world and we believe we are just at the beginning of our growth curve. We expect this platform to become increasingly difficult to replicate and therefore increasingly valuable for our shareholders as our financial results accelerate, as well as for other operators in the cannabis space that need to be in California.”

As noted above, ORHOF just announced its Q3 financial data.
“One year ago, we unveiled our ambitions to the public. In that period, Origin House has already created a proven track record of identifying break-out brands, partnering with them and selling to customers in a competitive marketplace to drive mutual success,” said Afzal Hasan, President and General Counsel of Origin House.
In all, traders will note 11% tacked on to share pricing for the listing in the past month. Moreover, the company has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing just under 150% above its longer-run average levels.
“The financial results we generated in Q2 and Q3 are representative of just the initial framework of a model primed for growth. We have already shown some early success in supporting the growth of some of the largest independent brands in California, like Lowell’s Smokes and King’s Garden. Our growing suite of brand development and support solutions, including financing, allows us to structure innovative, revenue-driving deals with other emerging brands, like we have done with Henry’s Original, Pacific Remedy and Utopia. These deals are the first in an extensive pipeline of brand partnerships that we are now executing on. Investing in our partners enables them to scale and realize their aspirations while providing us with sizable upside and limited risk.”
