As noted above, ACRGF just reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, including third quarter revenue of $22.4 million, a 307% increase compared to the same period in 2018, along with pro forma revenue for the third quarter at $42.2 million, a net loss attributable to Acreage of $39.9 million, an adjusted net loss attributable to Acreage of $15.0 million, and pro forma adjusted EBITDA at a loss of $9.1 million
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 ACRGF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -3% 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 stock has benefitted from a jump in recent trading volume to the tune of 98% over the long run average.
Commented Acreage Chairman and CEO Kevin Murphy: “The third quarter was highlighted by tremendous progress of our long-term plan. We launched great cannabis brands that are receiving strong influencer praise, continued building out our wholesale businesses across our national footprint, and achieved 100 percent retail distribution in the fast growing market of Pennsylvania. Importantly, we also have a path to secure the capital resources necessary to fund our future expansion and acquisition activities. The last six months have been challenging for the entire industry, but as I have emphasized since day one, this is a long game and I have never been more optimistic about the future of Acreage.”
Now commanding a market cap of $344M, ACRGF has virtually no cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to virtually no total current liabilities. ACRGF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $63.5M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 307%.
