MJardin Group, Inc. (CSE: MJAR) (OTCQX: MJARF) reported its financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2019, in Canadian dollars. The company delivered revenues of $10.9 million versus last year’s $6.7 million for the same time period.
MJardin said it continued to see improvements in the sales of Cannabis from its WILL facility, recording $1.1 million in sales in the first quarter with a $0.8 million fair value adjustment to inventory. The Colorado operations generated $8.9 million in sales.
The net loss was $7.7 million versus last year’s $1.3 million. Total expenses increased to $3.4 million from $1.8 million. General and administrative expense increases were attributed to the GrowForce Holdings acquisition. The company underwent corporate cost-cutting measures late in the first quarter of 2019 and the company said the resulting expected annual SG&A and Payroll expense run rate is approximately $12.1 million.
“Our Q1 results reflect the successful implementation of our operating plans. We refocused our priorities back to what we do best: grow high yield premium products,” said Adrian Montgomery, Chairman, and Interim CEO. “We made considerable progress towards the completion of our build outs and expansion of our U.S. and Canadian facilities, committed to smart and strategic growth decisions, and utilized the impressive industry talent we have on our team to improve our earnings and bolster our capital position. In Q2 we will start recognizing the benefits of the SG&A cost-cutting initiatives we started at the end of Q1. We will continue to develop and build demand for our premium product lines and evaluate more tuck-in opportunities where we can confidently and responsibly deploy smart capital.”
Post Quarter End
Following the end of the quarter, MJardin acquired Nevada edible producer Carson City Agency Solutions dba Cannabella. This past week, the company completed construction of its 76% owned “GRO” cultivation facility in Dunnville, Ontario. Plus, the company said it submitted the Evidence of Readiness package to Health Canada for the purposes of receiving a Cultivation and Processing Licence. On May 29, 2019, MJardin said it amended the terms of its existing loan with the senior lender to remove the callable feature and convert into a term loan, this enables MJardin to simplify the Company’s capital structure and fully focus on executing the operational plan.
