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 HRVSF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -13% on above average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities. Over the past month, shares of the stock have suffered from clear selling pressure, dropping by roughly -26%. What’s more, the name has witnessed a pop in interest, as transaction volume levels have recently pushed 9% over the long run average.
“We’re extremely pleased to have found a partner like Harvest, whose values align with ours and whose capabilities will enhance our ability to deliver high-quality products to our patients,” said Kurt Merschman, CEO of Arizona Natural Selections. “With Harvest’s exceptional reputation, commitment to Arizona and experienced operations team, we have no doubt we’ll be able to provide an even greater level of care and service to our patients.”
Now commanding a market cap of $217M, HRVSF has a significant war chest ($34.8M) of cash on the books, which compares with about $86.5M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. HRVSF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $127.3M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 133794.3%. This may be a very interesting story and we will look forward to updating it again soon.
