Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS:ACBFF) continues to be a clear market leader in terms of raw access to growth in the Canadian cannabis sector as we approach the full adult-use legalization date later this month. This was again on display last week as the company hit the tape with its latest quarterly report.
“Aurora made substantial progress toward our strategic goal of becoming the global scale and margin leader in the cannabis industry, establishing a vertically integrated company with a broadly diversified product offering with a large global footprint,” said Terry Booth, CEO of Aurora. “Our high-pace, consistent execution has enabled us to complete a number of transformative acquisitions, bringing together industry-leading companies in terms of scale, quality, efficiencies, plant and medical science, product development and innovation, brands, and international distribution.”
Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS:ACBFF) is one of the most widely diversified players in the cannabis space due to its powerful strategic investments.
In addition to the Company’s rapid organic growth and strong execution on strategic M&A, which to date includes 15 companies – MedReleaf, CanvasRX, Peloton Pharmaceutical, Aurora Deutschland (formerly Pedanios), H2 Biopharma, Urban Cultivator, BC Northern Lights, Larssen Greenhouses, CanniMed Therapeutics, Anandia Labs, HotHouse Consulting, Agropro, Borela, and the pending acquisition of ICC Labs – Aurora is distinguished by its reputation as a partner of choice and employer of choice in the global cannabis sector.
The company has invested in and established strategic partnerships with a range of leading innovators, including: The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD), Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI), Hempco Food and Fiber Inc. (TSXV: HEMP), Cann Group Ltd. (ASX: CAN), Micron Waste Technologies Inc. (CSE: MWM), Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO), Namaste Technologies Inc. (TSXV: N), Evio Beauty Group (private), Wagner Dimas (private), CTT Pharmaceuticals (OTCC: CTTH), and Alcanna Inc. (TSX: CLIQ).
However, just drilling down into its core cannabis production operations, through Aurora Cannabis Enterprises Inc, trumpets itself as “one of the world’s largest and leading cannabis companies” and a licensed producer of medical cannabis pursuant to Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).
The Company operates a 55,200 square foot, state-of-the-art production facility in Mountain View County, Alberta, known as Aurora Mountain, is currently constructing a second 800,000 square foot production facility, known as “Aurora Sky”, at the Edmonton International Airport, and has acquired, and is undertaking completion of a third 40,000 square foot production facility in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, on Montreal’s West Island.
Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS:ACBFF) is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $42M, with revenues of $19.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, which is up 223% compared to the same period in 2017. In addition, the company is sitting on a mountain of assets, with its latest data showing over $167 million on the balance sheet against just $57M in debt.
As discussed above, ACBFF shares continue to benefit from the company’s growth along with its extremely rich and diversified base of strategic investments.
Mr. Booth added, “With coast-to-coast supply arrangements, and our strategic investment in Alcanna, we are very well positioned to capitalize on the significant adult consumer use opportunity in Canada. With reported Q4 revenues of $19.1 million, pro-forma Q4 revenues of over $33.1 million, and production capacity scaling up rapidly, we anticipate accelerated revenue growth during fiscal 2019. We have invested heavily in our organizational capabilities, including sales, marketing, and corporate talent and capacity, to ensure we will continue to drive strong and sustainable long-term growth.”
The stock has been very strong since securing technical support back in early August when shares briefly dipped down under the $5/share level for a few days. When that level was retaken by bulls, it was truly off to the races, and this quarterly report helps to explain why.
Mr. Booth concluded, “Today, Aurora ticks all the boxes for sustainable success and leadership in the cannabis industry. Aurora is capitalizing on a once in a lifetime opportunity, and establishing new industry standards in terms of execution, science, cultivation, international expansion and product development that position us exceptionally well to do so. We are very proud of our achievements over the past year, and we look forward to fiscal 2019 as we continue to execute.”
