Urban-gro, Inc. (Nasdaq: UGRO) reported first-quarter financial results with revenue rising to $21.1 million versus $12.0 million in the prior-year period, representing an increase of $9.1 million, or 76%. This beat the Yahoo Finance average analyst estimate for revenue of $19 million.  Urban-gro attributed the growth to an increase in the specification, procurement, and integration of cultivation equipment tied to the growth of new and existing project contracts, as well as $3.4 million of incremental services revenue from acquisitions. Organic revenue growth was 48%, excluding the contribution from the 2WR+ acquisition.

The net loss was $(0.7) million, or $(0.07) per share, in the first quarter of 2022, as compared to a net loss of $(1.6) million, or a net loss per share of $(0.20), in the prior year period, representing an improvement of $0.9 million, or $0.13 per share. However, the earnings did miss the estimate for $(0.05).

Bradley Nattrass, Chairman, and CEO, said, “We are off to a strong start in 2022, reflected by our record first-quarter results, which continues to demonstrate our ability to drive unparalleled value for our clients through our full suite of in-house service offerings. We grew our revenue 75% on a year-over-year basis and continued to deliver positive Adjusted EBITDA while simultaneously making key investments that are geared toward driving long-term growth and enhancing shareholder value.”

Looking Ahead

As of March 31, 2022, the total backlog was $22 million, comprised of an equipment backlog of $16 million and a services backlog of $6 million. Urban-gro affirmed its 2022 revenue guidance of greater than $110 million and Adjusted EBITDA guidance of greater than $5.0 million, including partial year contribution from the acquisition of Emerald C.M. Inc.

Mr. Nattrass added, “I am very excited about the addition of construction management services to our platform following the Emerald C.M. acquisition. This completes our vision to create a turnkey design-build company with a full suite of capabilities and the requisite depth in indoor CEA expertise to drive value for our clients throughout the project lifecycle. Furthermore, while Emerald C.M. bolsters our project pipeline, our robust set of capabilities creates opportunities for diversification both in terms of revenue streams and industries beyond CEA. urban-gro is a formidable force with a focused strategy to deliver our value-added design, engineering, procurement, and construction management services through offering a bespoke design-build client solutions with a single point of responsibility.”

Urban-gro, Inc. (Nasdaq: UGRO) reported its fourth-quarter and full-year financial results, plus the company provided full-year 2022 guidance. Revenue was $19.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 versus $9.2 million in the prior-year period, representing an increase of $9.7 million, or 106%. It beat the analyst estimate for revenue of $18.8 million by Yahoo Finance. Urban-gro attributed the increase to a jump in cultivation equipment sales tied to an expansion in client base and incremental services revenue from acquisitions of $2.7 million.

The company reported a net loss of ($0.6) million, or ($0.06) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2021 versus a net loss of ($1.1) million, or a net loss per share of ($0.24), in the prior-year period, representing an increase of $0.5 million, or $0.18 per share. It missed the analyst estimate for a net loss of ($0.04) cents per share. The adjusted EBITDA was $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to $0.2 million in the prior-year period. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by growth in revenues and gross profit, including the contribution from the acquisition of 2WR, and partially offset by increased operating expenses which include the Company’s ongoing investment to support its European expansion.

Full Year Results

Revenue was $62.1 million for the 2021 full year compared to $25.8 million in the prior year, representing an increase of $36.3 million, or 140%. this also topped the company’s own guidance for the year. The net loss was ($0.9) million, or $0.09 per share, for the 2021 full year compared to a net loss of ($5.1) million, or ($1.06) per share, in the prior year, representing an increase of $4.2 million, or $0.97 per share. The increase in net income was driven by properly capitalizing the company so management could effectively execute the strategic plan which is built on a high-margin services platform, which smoothly converts to the design, procurement, integration, and commissioning of equipment systems.

“I am thrilled about our strong fourth-quarter results, which capped off a record full-year performance for urban-gro,” said Bradley Nattrass, Chairman, and CEO. “In 2021, we more than doubled the company from a revenue perspective, achieved positive Adjusted EBITDA, built our backlog to record levels, and expanded our integrated service model with the strategic acquisition of the architect firm, 2WR. Building upon that momentum entering 2022, earlier this month we announced the pending acquisition of Emerald Construction, which adds an accretive and highly complementary CEA-experienced construction management services solution to our offering and further optimizes our in-house capabilities to provide complete design-built facilities to our clients. With these additional capabilities, we are in an ideal position to accelerate our momentum in the global CEA industry while simultaneously enhancing shareholder value.”

2022 Outlook

Urban-Gro gave full year revenue guidance for 2022 of at least $110 million, including urban-gro’s base revenue as well as revenue for partial year contribution from our pending Emerald acquisition. The 2022 full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance of greater than $5 million, which includes a partial year contribution from the expected Emerald acquisition.

On March 14, 2022, the company announced the acquisition of Emerald Construction Management, Inc.  The acquisition further extends urban-gro’s services into early-stage conceptual design and planning, and it creates the industry’s first fully-integrated architecture-led design-build offering targeting the cannabis and food-focused CEA sectors. The company expects the transaction to be accretive to earnings within the first year and drive significant waterfall revenue opportunities for urban-gro’s existing suite of products and services.

Mr. Nattrass added, “I’m very excited to see what lies ahead for urban-gro. Our strong balance sheet and positive cash flow gives us the flexibility to diversify our revenue streams and pursue profitable growth opportunities. Furthermore, our differentiated set of capabilities puts us in an optimal position to generate opportunities across all geographies, crops, and equipment types and cement our footprint in the burgeoning $17 billion global vertical farming market.”

urban-gro, Inc. (Nasdaq: UGRO)  reported it is buying Emerald Construction Management Inc. in a deal valued at $7 million. Emerald is a 37-year old Colorado-based construction management firm providing comprehensive construction and supervisory services, from initial design through final build-out. Emerald C.M. said it expects 2021 revenues of $26.5 million and adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 million.

“The Emerald C.M. acquisition represents an important step in our strategy to supply the global indoor CEA market with turn-key design-built facilities,” said Bradley Nattrass, Chairman and CEO of urban-gro. “The market for mid-sized turn-key cultivation facilities and vertical farms is underserved, providing urban-gro a unique opportunity to bring the expertise and experience that is needed to deliver high-performance facilities. This acquisition enables us to get our clients to market more quickly while maintaining elite service levels.”

The total purchase price for the transaction, inclusive of a maximum $2.0 million contingent earnout, is $7.0 million. Urban-gro said it will fund the transaction with a combination of $2.5 million in cash and up to $4.5 million in equity. The transaction is expected to close within 60 days, pending successful completion of due diligence, and the Company expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to earnings in 2022.

Nattrass continued, “Beyond completing our turn-key strategy, the addition of Emerald C.M.’s contracts and project pipeline provides us with incremental opportunities to generate significant waterfall revenue by providing our current services and equipment solutions to Emerald C.M.’s existing clients. Coupled with our strong balance sheet and positive cash flow, we are in an ideal position to build upon our momentum in the global CEA industry while simultaneously enhancing shareholder value.”

Jim Dennedy, President and COO of urban-gro, added, “Today, many controlled environment agriculture companies are served by a variety of providers, many of which lack the depth in human resources, systems maturity, and financial stability to satisfy the requirements that are inherent in large and complex construction projects. The acquisition of Emerald C.M. not only strengthens our capabilities and services offerings, but also enables us to provide our clients with a single point of accountability to manage their project needs.”

Christopher Cullens, CEO of Emerald C.M., concluded, “This union will provide immense value to all our CEA and non-CEA clients as they will be able to take advantage of the expertise, scale, and the complete suite of professional services that urban-gro offers. We’ve developed a strong partnership with urban-gro, and I couldn’t be more excited for both our clients and my team to experience what the combined company will offer. There is a gap in the global CEA industry, more specifically with the design build of indoor mid-sized CEA facilities, and we now have the ideal solution to fill it.”

Urban-gro, Inc. (Nasdaq: UGRO) reported preliminary select financial performance for its full fiscal year ended on December 31, 2021 saying revenue should be approximately $62 million, which exceeds guidance of greater than $60 million provided on November 9, 2021. The company said this implies growth of more than 140% compared to $25.8 million in the fiscal year 2020. urban-gro also said it expects positive adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2021 with the full fiscal year 2021 to be greater than $2.2 million, which represents an improvement of more than $2.9 million from the full fiscal year 2020.

“2021 was an exceptional year for our organization and I’m pleased we exceeded our business and financial expectations,” said Chairman and CEO Bradley Nattrass. “As we move into 2022, we are experiencing strength in our diversified global CEA markets and continue to enjoy significant momentum with both new and existing clients. Moreover, our record consolidated backlog demonstrates the execution of our growth strategies as the increase in our backlog also extends to our services business, which is performing extremely well following our accretive acquisition of 2WR+ in 2021. Further, additional benefits of these services agreements have yet to be realized as we expect significant waterfall revenue of new associated equipment contracts in 2022.”

Urban Gro also said that it expects to finish the year with a record consolidated backlog in excess of $30 million, consisting of more than $25 million in equipment and more than $5 million in service contracts. Last month the company said it had signed two new contracts involving long-time urban-gro clients. The first contract was a strategic enterprise agreement signed with a multi-state operator (MSO) client that operates under a globally recognized brand and provides a variety of cannabis products in regulated markets around the world. In addition to being the exclusive provider of architecture, engineering and design services for the development and build-out of the client’s new cultivation facilities, urban-gro will also be the exclusive equipment supplier for all the mechanical and cultivation equipment needs of the facilities. The second contract is with one of the leading Canadian-based licensed producers and is expected to generate approximately $9 million dollars of cultivation equipment revenue over the next several quarters. This contract is incremental to urban-gro’s announced backlog of $22.5 million as of September 30, 2021.

It’s a trend that could benefit emerging agricultural technology or ag-tech companies within the cannabis space. Many of these companies either began indoor growing with traditional products like lettuce or started in cannabis only to see a future beyond the confines of a pseudo-legal product.

Pitchbook News issued a new report that found funding for ag-tech companies jumped to a record high in the third quarter of 2021. Their data showed that this group raised $3.2 billion across 201 deals. This was an increase of 57% over the second quarter and annually, deal values hit $7.8 billion year-to-date. It will beat 2020 by 21.3%, with just one quarter remaining in the year. Pitchbook also said that the deal count totaled 545 deals in 2021 year-to-date, on pace to reach a decade high.

While none of the companies mentioned in the Pitchbook report come from the cannabis industry, it does bode well for them and makes their fundraising story a bit easier to tell. The big kahuna was Pivot Bio which raised $430.0 million Series D in the third quarter led by Temasek Holdings. According to Crunchbase, it has raised $616 million to date and has a post-money valuation in the range of $1B to $10B as of Jul 19, 2021, according to PrivCo. The company has developed a method to replace synthetic nitrogen that farmers use with a proprietary microbial technology that supplies the daily nitrogen cereal crops require.

Pitchbook said, “Investors are focusing on tech solutions that reduce atmospheric carbon, either by mitigating factors that lead to carbon emissions, such as enteric fermentation, or improving soil health and other carbon-capture tools and strategies.” The report also said that ag biotech startups attracted the majority (39.6%) of quarterly venture capital funding, while precision ag startups drew the majority of deals by count (34.4%).

Ag-Tech Exit

Of course, most venture capital investors aren’t in it for the long haul. Most of them want to know the way out the door before signing the check. Pitchbook said that the largest exit of the quarter was Ginkgo Bioworks’ $1.7 billion SPAC merger. The report said, “The company’s cell editing platform is used to pursue livestock feed innovation and microbiomics alternatives to synthetic agricultural chemicals, among other objectives.” Pitchbook reported that other key companies that exited in the third quarter included Benson Hill (NYSE: BHIL), Bear Flag Robotics, and American Robotics.
