KushCo Holdings, Cannabis Company Revenue Up by Triple Digits, Analysts Review and Target

KushCo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: KSHB) is the parent company to a diverse group of business units that are transformative leaders in the cannabis, CBD and other related industries. KushCo Holdings’ subsidiaries and brands provide exceptional customer service, product quality, compliancy knowledge and a local presence in serving its diverse customer base.


On Sep 18th, the parent company of innovative cannabis industry leaders such as Kush Bottles, Kush Energy, The Hybrid Creative, and Koleto Packaging Solutions, which provide a range of services and products for the regulated cannabis, CBD and other related industries, announced that the Company is expecting to report over $51 million in annual revenue for the fiscal year ended August 31st, 2018, representing an increase of approximately 171% compared with the fiscal year ended August 31st, 2017.


The record-setting revenue numbers demonstrate the continued rapid growth of the Company, following a series of initiatives to drive organic growth, as well as strategic M&A activity.  These efforts have allowed the Company to expand its product portfolio and implement a more efficient distribution platform.


Nick Kovacevich, CEO, and Chairman of KushCo Holdings noted “Our fiscal year 2018 revenue serves as a historic milestone, not just for KushCo Holdings, but for the entire cannabis industry.  We believe that no U.S. based public cannabis-related company has ever before generated this level of annual sales revenue. Building on the Company’s year to date momentum, our expected fourth quarter achievement of approximate revenues in excess of $19 million is a testament to the highly innovative and strategic work by our team, completing and integrating key acquisitions, and the effectiveness of our sales model in meeting the evolving needs of the market.  We are witnessing just how our scale allows us to leverage synergies which benefit both us and our great customers.”

KushCo’ business risk profile is supported by multiple growing businesses offering a wide array of products and services to the cannabis industry. While the company sees its fiscal 2018 achievement as an important milestone, heading into the fiscal year 2019 KSHB is going to continue to put its heads down, invest in its platform and focus on gaining market share, growing revenues, and building value for both customers and shareholders.

Crossing the $51 million revenue mark is another significant indicator that the U.S. cannabis space is now a legitimate industry, producing major revenues, employment, and tax income.  As more and more states move towards legalization of medical and adult use cannabis programs, the company expects that the industry would continue to see rapid growth and a race amongst businesses to achieve the scale needed to serve this major industry. Analyst tracking the stock believes that the revenue forecast over the medium term is extremely promising and the company is expected to outperform the market.


Per www.marketbeat.com, KSHB’ average twelve-month price target is $8.75, suggesting that the stock has a possible upside of 49.57%. Considering all this, the company is in an extremely favorable risk-reward position, and value investors should consider exposure in this sector as the backdrop remains favorable.


Below are the excerpts of recent analyst rating/Price targets on the company:

Key risk factors and potential stock drivers:

  • Continuing growth in the cannabis sector could act as a catalyst for the company shares.
  • The company operation is still at an early stage and burning cash. Therefore, its ability to maintain liquidity and financial flexibility to fund its incremental capital requirements will remain a critical challenge for the company.
  • The company’ business is exposed to risk related to competitive pressure, and its revenues may suffer from competitive pressure.
  • Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. It is a Schedule I controlled substance. Even in those jurisdictions in which the use of medical marijuana has been legalized at the state level, its prescription is a violation of federal law.
  • The company’s business is exposed to regulatory risk and its adverse impact on the overall business risk profile.
