Harvest Health & Recreation, Inc. (CSE: HARV) (OTCQX: HRVSF) has reported its financial results for the second quarter, ending on June 30, 2019. Revenue rose from $19.2 million in the previous quarter to $26.6 million, representing an increase of 39%. If one were to include Harvest Health’s completed and pending acquisitions, quarterly revenue would be $78 million.
The gross profit was $16.9 million, and the gross profit margin was 64%. The company incurred a net loss of $20.6 million, which was attributed to “planned investments in people and infrastructure” meant to support growth initiatives and expansions. Harvest Health currently holds $89.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and has approximately $105.1 million in outstanding debt.
During the second quarter, Harvest Health opened three new retail locations in the state of Florida, closed its pending acquisition of Cannapharmacy, and was awarded a retail dispensary license in Pasadena, California. Following the close of the quarter, the company gained a cultivation license in Utah and opened six dispensaries in Arizona, California, Florida, and North Dakota.
Additionally, the company signed an agreement with the Asian American Trade Associations Council (AATAC) to distribute Harvest Health branded products to over 10,000 retail locations in the AATAC network.
Harvest Health also had some success in raising funds during the last quarter, having recently closed an initially $100 million tranche (out of $500 million) of convertible debentures, as well as signing a term sheet for a secured term loan for up to $225 million from an investment fund managed by Torian Capital.
“During the second quarter, Harvest continued to execute on its strategy by adhering to our four core initiatives: building a world class team, expanding our retail and wholesale footprint across the U.S., building and acquiring brands and distributing them across our footprint and continuing on a path of profitable growth we believe that we can fulfill our objective of becoming the most valuable cannabis company in the world,” said Harvest Health CEO Steve White.
