There’s no question that KushCo Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:KSHB) shareholders have been falling on very rough times. The stock has been plummeting. To help mitigate the nature of this action, the company just announced that it has named Sentia Wellness, a new hemp-derived CBD company with manufacturing and distribution capabilities, as its first brand partner for its new Retail Services division focused on CBD mass distribution, industry education, and compliance.
According to the release, “Sentia will utilize KushCo’s partnership with C.A. Fortune, a leading full-service national consumer products sales and marketing agency focused on lifestyle brand partnerships, to activate its Social CBD brand across a variety of retail channels. The partnership commenced on October 1, 2019 and enables Sentia to leverage KushCo’s enhanced distribution capabilities across the U.S. with many of the largest conventional retailers.”

As noted above, KSHB just announced that it has named Sentia Wellness, a new hemp-derived CBD company with manufacturing and distribution capabilities, as its first brand partner for its new Retail Services division focused on CBD mass distribution, industry education, and compliance.
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 -2% on above average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities. In addition, the company has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running just under 140% over the long run average.
“After having successfully built and delivered a platform of proprietary and value-added products to our highly entrenched customer base, we are excited to begin delivering to customers our higher-value services, with Sentia as the first CBD brand partner under our new Retail Services division,” said Jason Vegotsky, KushCo’s Chief Revenue Officer and President. “Sentia represents an ideal candidate to tap into the KushCo ecosystem and leverage our mass distribution channels and deep industry knowledge to establish a stronger foothold in the rapidly growing CBD market. They appreciate the need to partner with an industry leader like KushCo that has developed a keen understanding of the regulatory and compliance challenges impacting the CBD industry, along with having a robust distribution network to scale nationwide and turn Social CBD into a household name. This partnership represents the first of many, and we are thrilled to leverage our relationship with C.A. Fortune to drive even higher value for our customers, enhance our margins, and strengthen our competitive moat.”
Currently trading at a market capitalization of $152M, KSHB has a significant war chest ($12.2M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to about $29.8M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. KSHB is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $121.9M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 221.5%. You can bet we will update this one again as new information comes into view.
