As noted above, the company just announced its third quarterly report for 2016, which showed “results from operations, the licensing and build-out status of the two new Kaya Shack Marijuana Superstores currently under development, as well as discusses forward-looking growth plans for the Company after legal marijuana’s November 8th ballot victory in 7 states. In a related announcement, KAYS tapped David Kotler, a former South Florida Prosecutor who has significant experience in the early stages of medical marijuana licensing in Florida, as well as extensive contacts nationwide in the cannabis industry.”
“KAYS’ revenues for Q-3 2016 are up approximately 700% versus Q-3 2015, and revenues for the 9 month period ending September 30, 2016 are up approximately 700% versus same period ending Sept 30, 2015,” stated Kaya Holdings CEO, Craig Frank. “We are maintaining the $1mm pace in sales for FYE 2016 to set as our target. We are proud that all our revenues are generated from the production and sale of legal cannabis, and not from tomato farming, consulting, or other non-cannabis related endeavors often used to bolster revenues”.
Those results are very interesting. It’s also key to note that this company has exposure to the brand new market in Florida medical marijuana, which should add further fuel to the fire. That’s why it’s particularly interesting to see the unscheduled conference call suddenly pop up.
Specifically, the company said it will be hosting a shareholder and interested investor conference call and webinar on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 at 14:00 EST. The event will include new video of the 2 existing Kaya Shack Marijuana Dispensaries and the Company’s Grow Facility, as well as discussion on the two new Kaya Shack Marijuana Superstores under construction and pending licensing, operations including the state of the market, recent election results, and growth plans for the future.
Earning a current market cap value of $21.2M, KAYS has an extremely small store of cash on the books, alongside total assets of nearly $370K, which stands against an appreciable load ($1.48M) of total accumulated debt.
As discussed, KAYS is making real money, with trailing 12-month revenues coming in at 987.41k. In addition, the company is seeing major top line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 704%.
