President and COO, Andrew Glashow, joined Stock Day host, Everett Jolly.
To begin the interview, Jolly asked Glashow to provide further insight on the Company's revenue growth since 2018. Glashow explained that the Company's operating divisions, City Trees and Oasis Cannabis, have seen revenue increases of 25% for the quarter ended February 28, 2019, compared to the same quarter of 2018. In addition, their gross margin has experienced an increase of 56% compared to the same quarter of 2018. With this growth, the Company also increased its overall cash flow.
Jolly then asked how the Company has achieved such steady growth. 'People, process, and purchasing', shared Glashow. He expanded by stating that the Company has a great operating team in place that is following an effective process. 'We're really proud of the results we're seeing', stated Glashow.
Glashow shared that the Company produced $2.4 million in revenue and 39% gross margins during the quarter ended 2/28/19, versus the quarter ended 2/28/18 which saw revenue of $1.9 million and Gross margins of 29%.
Glashow then explained that the Company has been implementing a few key changes in terms of their process, including the addition of a new sign package for their Las Vegas dispensary and a completely new remodel of the interior. These changes have already led to increased daily customer count and revenue.
Glashow also gave listeners an update on City Trees, the Company's wholesale division. Over the past year, this segment of the Company has grown to service 70% of all of the dispensaries in Nevada along with substantial revenue growth.
Jolly asked about the Company's Massachusetts expansion, which includes a cultivation opportunity and a medical dispensary. Glashow shared that the Company expects to close on the CannAssist cultivation opportunity in June, meanwhile, the medical dispensary is due to close in November of 2019. The Company has also invested substantial funds into the medical dispensary, In Good Health Inc., which has allowed for its expansion and improved development. Both sites represent exponential revenue potential, especially given their location in Massachusetts. Glashow adds that currently, the Company expects revenues from these projects to be reflected in November of 2019.
Glashow then explained that the Company has been able to raise $18 million in the last quarter, which has allowed them to remain in a positive position for expansion and the necessary investments needed to improve their assets. 'We're in a pretty good position from a balance sheet perspective', stated Glashow.
To close the interview, Glashow shared his excitement for the Company's current strategy, which includes an efficient growth plan and the improvement of their current operations. He also shared that the Company's current buildout of their North Las Vegas cultivation center, which specializes in their proprietary conversion and extraction methodology is a perfect example of their strategic process.
