FinCanna Combines Investment & Industry Expertise to Capitalize on California
June 4th, 2019
App, Exclusive, News, Top Story
California’s cannabis industry is projected to reach $7.7 billion by 2022, according to BDS Analytics and Arcview Group, making it the largest medical and recreational cannabis market in North America. While there are many different investment opportunities in the state, the best companies have innovative business models that avoid future commoditization issues and maximize scalability to build long-term shareholder value.
In this article, we will take a look at FinCanna Capital Corp.’s (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) unique business model that addresses these concerns and its experienced management and advisory team capable of executing on its ambitious goals.
Targeting California with a Unique Business Model
FinCanna Capital has developed a royalty investment business focused on the US and California in particular. In exchange for providing capital to licensed cannabis businesses, the company enters into royalty agreements that seek to generate predictable high-margin recurring revenue. The business model is also very scalable since there are no operational components.
For portfolio companies, FinCanna’s business model enables them to avoid dilutive equity financing agreements with a potentially lower cost of capital. Portfolio companies also have greater flexibility; their owner/operators maintain control and operating autonomy and the agreements can be customized based on the situation. Incentives for both companies are also aligned since FinCanna only makes money when portfolio companies make money.
FinCanna’s shareholders benefit from a diversified portfolio of companies across different sectors as the company seeks to invest its capital in rapidly emerging private companies operating in the licensed U.S cannabis industry. For investors, diversification helps mitigate the risk of any individual company or sub-sector impacting an entire portfolio’s value. Cannabis investors also have access to private versus public cannabis companies as added diversification. Additionally, FinCanna’s royalty business model doesn’t require nearly as many personnel or resources as production companies, which keeps overhead costs relatively low and predictable.
FinCanna’s current active royalty portfolio includes:
ezGreen Compliance – ezGreen Compliance offers state-of-the-art enterprise compliance and point-of-sale (POS) software solutions to licensed cannabis dispensaries and cultivators. ezGreen’s POS software supports and simplifies the maintenance of accurate reporting, inventory control and taxation requirements for licensees seeking to remain compliant.
Refined Resin Technologies – Refined Resin Technologies, located in Oakland California, is a cannabinoid research and refinery company engineered for industrial scale. Upon build out of its 6,000 sq. ft. extraction facility looks to provide B2B and B2C products and services to licensed dispensaries and distributors in the licensed cannabis supply chain.
QVI Inc. – QVI Inc. is a manufacturer of cannabis infused products under the trade name “The Galley”. Currently, the company is retrofitting its 8,300 sq. ft. facility with dedicated spaces for a large-scale commercial kitchen for baked goods, chocolate products and hard candy and gum products. The facility will also have a designated area for contract manufacturing and additional products.
