As noted above, KSHB just announced that it has expanded its CBD footprint with the launch of a new hemp trading business focused on facilitating legally compliant hemp transactions for in-network, pre-qualified farmers and a pre-qualified buyer network.
Traders will note 27% during the past month in terms of shareholder gains in the stock. Moreover, the company has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing 53% over the long run average.
Mr. Kovacevich continued, “We started with the rollout of our Retail Services division this summer, which has been building and activating distribution networks of compliant hemp-derived CBD brands across many retail channels, including the conventional, pet care, convenience, and beauty categories. We believe our partnerships with leading CPG sales agencies is the first large scale go-to-market operation focused on helping these major CBD brands achieve mass distribution across all consumer channels in legal U.S. markets. More recently, we have been offering unique CBD packaging solutions that allow for significant creativity and customization, helping our customers’ brands differentiate themselves on the retail shelves. And now, with the launch of our hemp trading business, we are servicing the entire hemp-derived CBD market from seed to sale, especially as many of our historically THC-focused customers start to expand with unique brands and offerings in the CBD market. We believe this crossover between THC and CBD will continue and with our more than 6,000 customers across both industries, are in prime position to take advantage of the convergence between these two markets. Overall, the hemp trading business will not only expand our CBD footprint and amplify our cross-selling opportunities, but more importantly, will contribute significant EBITDA given its capital light nature, which altogether should help us achieve our goal of adjusted EBITDA profitability in the second half of fiscal 2020.”
