As noted above, CWBHF just announced its Q3 data. Also, as noted, the stock has been plodding sideways. The numbers for the quarter certainly look good enough to justify some potential upside, particularly given the gawdy growth numbers so often cited for the CBD space in general.
“During the third quarter we completed a successful initial public offering and private placement that generated significant capital for the Company that is being deployed to accelerate our growth in the hemp-derived CBD sector,” said Hess Moallem, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“This capital is being used primarily to expand the Company’s cultivation and production capacities to meet the increasing demand for our industry-leading Charlotte’s Web products, both domestically and internationally. Charlotte’s Web is the market leader in the rapidly expanding hemp-derived CBD wellness markets, and we are committed to the highest quality products and efficacy. Our future product expansion plans will continue to support the stringent demands and expectations of our valuable customers.”
Currently trading at a market capitalization of $1.09B, CWBHF has a significant war chest ($14.2M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $9.7M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. CWBHF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $38.8M. In addition, the company is seeing recent top-line growth, with sequential quarterly revenues growing at 34.2%. This is an exciting story, and we look forward to a follow-up chapter as events transpire.
