The action has been troubling for TILT Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:SVVTF) shareholders, to say the least. Shares of the stock have been dripping value for the better part of the past 3 months. But we would point to one key locus of hope: the rather exquisite letter to shareholders just put out by management. It hit truly all the right notes: transparency, quantitative facts, and the unpredictable vicissitudes of “markets”. It’s an extremely well-trodden path of successfully shoring up confidence.
Here’s a representative passage: “While I won’t make it a regular practice to comment on daily stock price movements, I have observed there remains a great deal of confusion out in the market around TILT. After a strong first quarter earnings last week where TILT reported $40mm of pro forma revenue, representing 3x year-over-year revenue growth and a 330 basis point improvement in Adjusted pro forma EBITDA Margin compared to the same period a year ago, I do think it is valuable to briefly check-in.”

As noted above, SVVTF just put out an interesting piece of shareholder communication that we think did an extremely effective job of messaging in the company’s favor, and it could have an effect going forward.
Even in light of this news, SVVTF has had a rough past week of trading action, with shares sinking something like -26% in that time. That said, chart support is nearby and we may be in the process of constructing a nice setup for some movement back the other way. Over the past month, shares of the stock have suffered from clear selling pressure, dropping by roughly -30%.
Furthermore, the stock has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing 86% over the long run average.
The move could be backed up by similar campaigning for the value proposition inherent in the stock’s shares, as noted at the tail end: “I look forward to maintaining a direct dialogue with our shareholders and prospective investors on TILT and our opportunity ahead as one of the largest and most innovative US-focused cannabis companies in the industry.”
Now commanding a market cap of $316.71M, SVVTF has a significant war chest ($7.3M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $1.7M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. The company is pre-revenue at this point. This is an exciting story, and we look forward to a follow-up chapter as events transpire.
