MJardin Group, Inc. (CSE: MJAR), reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2018. The company’s revenue increased 65.1% to $7.0 million versus last year’s $4.3 million. The company said that the revenue growth was driven primarily by facility design and build-out fees earned from GrowForce for cultivation centers, interest on notes receivable and rent income earned from Buddy Boy Brands.
Still, MJardin delivered a net loss of $0.4 million versus last year’s net income of $0.6 million. The company attributed the loss to higher interest expense, compensation and benefits, and higher legal and consulting fees related to recent acquisitions, equity and RTO transactions.
“We are pleased to report our first quarterly results as a publicly traded company, continuing our strong growth trends and positive EBITDA,” said Rishi Gautam, Chairman of MJardin. “This is a very exciting time for MJardin with this month’s public listing of MJardin shares and the announcement of the proposed acquisition of GrowForce. We believe we are well positioned as one of the largest and most experienced cannabis operators in North America and as the largest multi-national operator.”
At the end of the third quarter, MJardin was managing 37 total facilities/operations. The company’s total operating expenses jumped by 58.9% to $5.8 million over last year’s $3.6 million. MJardin said that the increase reflects increased compensation and benefits to support that growth, including increased grow facility personnel at operator facilities and the continued expansion of the company’s executive team and corporate office personnel.
Subsequent to the quarter ending, MJardin completed an equity capital raise for approximately C$26 million. On November 13, 2018, MJardin completed the reverse take-over of Sumtra Holdings. On November 15, 2018, the company began trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange and the $26 million of subscription receipt proceeds were released from escrow and available to the Company.

iAnthus reported that its consolidated revenues for the company increased 101% quarter-over-quarter, increasing to $1,074,398 in Q3 from $533,545 in Q2, yet these figures didn’t appear in the company’s filing.

These figures are unaudited and are not consolidated by the company at present due to certain regulatory restrictions.
In a statement, the company reported that its cash balance is currently $24.3 million. As of November 26, 2018, the Company had 20,933,995 warrants outstanding, all of which are currently in the money. iAnthus would receive approximately $54.5 million if all outstanding warrants were exercised.
