As noted above, KSHB just announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with an institutional investor for a private placement of a senior unsecured note with an aggregate principal amount of US$21,300,000.
While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action KSHB shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -9% on above-average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities. What’s more, the name has seen interest climb, with an increase in recent trading volume of 6% beyond its prior sustained average level.
KushCo’s Chief Executive Officer, Nick Kovacevich, commented, ”We are thrilled to announce this unsecured, non-dilutive financing structure to support our company’s rapid growth. The terms of this note represent a dramatic improvement in our ability to secure financing with a lower cost of capital and is indicative of more attractive financing alternatives within the cannabis industry.”
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $438.27M, KSHB has a significant war chest ($17.9M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $19.1M in total current liabilities. KSHB is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $93.4M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 239.5%.
