MassRoots Inc (OTCMKTS:MSRT) is a interesting penny player in the technology and social media wing of the cannabis patch. The stock has been suffering badly in recent trade, with the pressure mounting upon its recent release of financial results for its quarter ended March 31, 2017. The company’s management recently issued an update that has done little to staunch the flow of blood.
Overall, the company brought in $130k on the top line, which is actually down from its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 ($210k), which was also actually, itself, down from those of the quarter ended June 30, 2016 ($490k). Sales were also down on a y/y basis. So, the task that management faces in its messaging project is a steep and difficult one: as the marijuana space has grown, MSRT revenues have declined. We will look at how management has angled against this in a minute. But first, for those who aren’t familiar with this company, here is a more general overview.

As noted above, the most important data point from the company’s recent financial results filing – revenues – was not a great number. In the company’s subsequent shareholder notes, MSRT management focused on other factors, such as balance sheet improvement, cash flows, user growth, and convertible debt retirement.
According to the release, “during the first quarter of 2017, the Company achieved cash-flow positive status, with a net cash inflow of $1.8M, and retired all outstanding convertible debt. Additionally, the exercise of warrants resulted in a significant reduction in the Company’s derivative liabilities. MassRoots also formed a strategic relationship through an investment in the cannabis media powerhouse, High Times…Apart from improvements to its financial position, MassRoots crossed one million registered users in March 2017, making it one of the largest online communities of cannabis enthusiasts. Shortly after reaching this milestone, the Company announced the launch of its celebrity influencer program to help accelerate MassRoots’ user-growth towards 2 million users and formed a strategic partnership with Whoopi & Maya, co-founded by the legendary Whoopi Goldberg.”
“We’re pleased with the significant improvement in the Company’s fundamentals we experienced during the first quarter,” stated MassRoots CEO Mr. Isaac Dietrich. “Our core objective for the balance of the year is continuing to better monetize our user-base and deliver more value to our clients.”
We’ve witnessed a bit more than -30% shaved off share prices over just the past week of action. Moreover, the name has seen an influx in interest of late, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 50% beyond what we have been seeing over the larger time frame.
Earning a current market cap value of $40.7M, MSRT has a chunk ($2.2M) of cash on the books, which stands against virtually no total current liabilities.
