We continue to watch Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:CWBHF) with special interest. The CBD space has undoubtedly surprised to the upside so far in 2019, mostly on the back of a surprising rate of placement on mainstream retail chain store shelves, such as Macy’sm Rite Aid, Walmart, Kroger’s, Walgreens, and several others. That momentum has fundamentally shifted the curve for forward estimates in the space, and CWBHF is really one of the very few pure-plays, putting the stock on basically everyone’s radar as something like a referendum on the idea of CBD as an explosive growth market.
Helping to further color the story this week, the company announced the results from its 2019 annual general and special meeting of shareholders held on August 20, 2019 in New York. The big points covered included the appointment of MNP LLP as the auditors of the Company to hold office until the close of the next annual meeting of shareholders of the company, the resolution authorizing the amendment of the company’s Articles and Notice of Articles with respect to stakeholder interests and conversion to a benefit company, the resolution authorizing the amendment of the company’s advance notice provisions contained in the Articles, and the approval and adoption of the employee share purchase plan of the company.
