Vancouver, British Columbia, March 02, 2021 – FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna” or the “Company”) (CSE: CALI), a royalty company for the licensed U.S. cannabis industry, is pleased to provide a corporate update further to its recently announced upsized financing of $2 million.
As referenced in recent corporate communications regarding its investee companies, FinCanna is positioned to generate an ongoing royalty income stream from these investments as they continue to scale their operations throughout 2021. A summary of the Company’s past news releases and information regarding FinCanna’s portfolio companies can be found at www.fincannacapital.com
Andriyko Herchak, CEO of FinCanna Capital stated, “As the only publicly traded, royalty-focused company for the licensed U.S. cannabis industry, we have commenced and are uniquely positioned to generate high margin revenue in perpetuity from our fast-growing private U.S. based investee companies. These investments have taken patience, however, as these businesses continue to expand their customer base, our shareholders stand to benefit from the low cost, high margin structure of our royalty model. Like many investors, we are bullish on the U.S. cannabis sector as a whole and look forward to sharing our progress over the coming weeks and months.”
The FinCanna Royalty Model
FinCanna invests permanent and secured capital in early-stage private businesses in the licensed U.S. cannabis sector for a percentage of both their topline revenue and economic interest in a sale of the business. The model, while providing a number of benefits to its investees, is also highly attractive to FinCanna shareholders:
- Focused on the licensed U.S. Cannabis industry, the largest cannabis market in the world
- Provides access to synergistic early-stage licensed U.S. cannabis companies, across multiple sectors resulting in leverage to high-margin revenue to FinCanna
- Designed to be profitable based on its low operating overhead and high-margin revenue model
The Democratic victory in the recent US election is widely perceived as an endorsement for the legalization of cannabis nationally which in turn has triggered what is being referred to as the “new green rush”. Fueled by strong consumer demand, annual legal cannabis sales are projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21%, to reach more than $41 billion by 2025. (New Frontier Data)
This rapid market growth has attracted significant increased interest from the financial sector as evidenced by the influx of capital into the space. Investment opportunities are proliferating as cannabis businesses position themselves to attract new capital from investors as this market momentum accelerates. As noted in a recent article from BNN Bloomberg, U.S. cannabis companies netted more than US$975 million in new equity raises in the first two weeks of 2021.
The increased participation from investors in the sector has also been reflected in increased valuations of publicly listed U.S. focused cannabis companies as registered on the US Marijuana Index that has recorded a year to date gain of ~55%.
