CannTrust Holdings Inc. (CSE: TRST), a licensed producer of medical cannabis under the Health Canada Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (“ACMPR”)  program, today announced preliminary Revenue and Patient Growth for the nine months ending September 30, 2017. All amounts expressed are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

CannTrust Holdings Inc. (CNW Group/CannTrust Holdings Inc.)

Preliminary Revenues for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2017 were $6,140,224 and $13,714,847 respectively compared to $786,915 and $2,286,095 in the comparable 2016 periods.  

2017 Third Quarter Highlights

  • Record Preliminary Quarterly Revenues of $6.1M, a 680% increase from the comparable prior year period and a 35% increase from the $4.5M in revenues in the immediately preceding quarter ended June 30, 2017
  • Current sales exceeding $2.1 million per month
  • Active patients increased to more than 31,000 compared to 4,700 in the comparable prior year period and 20,000 in the immediately preceding quarter ended June 30, 2017
  • Cannabis extracts increased to 61% of cannabis sales

The Company notes that these unaudited estimated results for the Company are based on management’s initial review of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. They are subject to adjustments in conjunction with the completion of the Company’s customary closing procedures. Consequently, final results may differ from these preliminary estimates and any changes could be material. The Company expects to release the final September 30, 2017 financial results in late November 2017.

Developments subsequent to the Quarter

  • Received our Health Canada Cultivation Licence under the ACMPR for our recently completed 250,000 square foot Phase 1 redevelopment of our 430,000 square foot Niagara Greenhouse Facility. Phase 1 was completed both on budget and on time
  • First harvest from the Niagara Greenhouse Facility expected in November, with full utilization from Phase 1 projected in December 2017
  • The planned Phase 2 expansion at the Niagara Facility is anticipated to be completed and in cultivation towards the middle of 2018. Phase 1 and 2 should conservatively provide the Company with an additional 40,000 kilograms of annual growing capacity
  • Increased active patients to over 32,500

Management Overview

“During the period we continued to experience dynamic growth in all areas of the Company as we execute our business plan aimed at being a market leader and innovator in the development of products and services to better serve our patients and physicians,” said Eric Paul CEO.  

“Our standardized, best practises, pesticide-free products and our physician education programs continue to position us as one of the premier providers resulting in exceptional new patient growth.”

“The pending legislation to legalize the adult consumer recreational use of cannabis provides a further major opportunity for the Company. With the completion of all phases of our Niagara expansion we plan to have in excess of 1,000,000 square feet of production capacity. This will give us the ability to acquire a substantial share of the increased demand arising from this new market.”

Paul continued “Our recent listing on the CSE provides the Company with the exposure, platform and access to capital markets required to effectively compete and participate in the dynamic growth of our industry.”
