Good day everyone,
Alcohol and sports drinks are well known to be a recession proof sector!
We are initiating coverage on Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (NYSE: SBEV), a company engaged in manufacturing, distribution, sales & marketing of various beverages across multiple channels. in both the non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverage segments.
Current price $2.28/share (at market close 8-18-21)
SBEV caught our eye because they recently uplisted to the NYSE American exchange, and just released their 10-Q for the second quarter ended June 30th indicating a high level of revenue growth.
In June, Splash Beverage Group uplisted to the NYSE American stock exchange and closed on an underwritten public offering of 3.75 million shares of common stock and warrants to purchase up to 3.75 million shares of common stock at a public offering price of $4.00 per share and accompanying warrant. The warrants which trade on the NYSE American under the symbol “SBEV WS” have an exercise price of $4.60 per share and expire five years from issuance.
When we look at the company stock chart, we can see the drop in the share price after the uplist to the NYSE and public offering of shares. SBEV share are trading below their 50 DMA and 200 DMA of $3.34 and $4.19 respectively. The current RSI (14) is at 29.67. These data an indicate shares that may have been oversold.
Let’s look at the SBEV recent revenue growth QoQ:
Q-2 2021 $3.287M (+36%)
Q-1 2021 $2.418M (+95%)
Q-4 2020 $1.242M (+23%)
Q-3 2020 $1.010M (+65%)
Q-2 2020 $ .612M
That’s an impressive growth rate and represents a 225% growth rare for the trailing twelve months. Further, the company has issued guidance for H-2 and FYE 2021 revenues:
With respect to Q3, Splash sees revenue of $4.14 million, implying an increase of 34% sequentially and 310% over its comparative quarter in 2020. The company expects its FY Q4 2021 results to reach $5.78 million, representing a sequential quarterly increase of 39% and a comparative quarterly increase of 366%. Year-end guidance implies for total revenues to reach $15.97 million, implying year-over-year growth of 436%.
Revenues in the first six months of 2021 grew to $5,426,684, an increase of $4,902,132 or 934% over $524,732 in the first six months of 2020.
SBEV is a portfolio style company, meaning they acquire existing beverage brands and develop them rather that creating products.
So, what is SBEV selling to generate that kind of growth? They sell beverages with four different brands:
Tapout – a complete line of high-performance sports drinks. – Tapoutdrinks.com
Salt – naturally flavored 100% blanco agave tequila with a clean and sweet taste in a variety of flavors. – DrinkSaltTequila.com
Copadivino – the leading producer of premium wine by the glass in the United States. – Copadivino.com
Pulpo-Loco – Sangria, crafted and imported from Spain. – Pulpo-Loco.com
According to Fortune Business Insights™, the global sports drink market is projected to grow from $27.22 billion in 2021 to $36.35 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 4.2%. The Statista Consumer Market Outlook estimates that by 2025 the global market size of alcoholic beverages will increase to over 2.2 trillion U.S. dollars.
SBEV has a very modest share structure with 30.49M shares outstanding and only 18.57M shares in the public float. We note that insiders own 30.2% of the outstanding shares.
Rapid triple digit revenue growth YoY.
Very small share structure.
Operating in a massive market sector.
Shares are 64% off their May 2021 high of $6.72/share.
We expect SBEV shares could move to the upside as the news (just released Tuesday) of their Q-2 revenues and guidance for 2021 revenue growth get widely distributed.
We will have an updated report on SBEV soon,
