On September 23, Medmen Enterprises (CSE: MMEN) reported their fiscal fourth-quarter financial results. The company reported revenue of $42 million, up 18.5% quarter over quarter and 55.4% year over year. The company saw gross margins come in at 46.9%, up from 40.5% last quarter.
After the results, Canaccord Genuity raised their 12-month price target from C$0.40, while also giving Medmen a hold rating, an improvement from their previous sell rating. They say that the combination of Tilray’s debt extension and the $100 million equity financing, on top of a revenue beat, was the reason for the upgrade and price target raise.
Medmen beat on most of Canaccord’s key estimates. Canaccord forecasted fourth quarter revenue to be $34.5 million, with adjusted EBITDA coming in at ($10.7) million. Canaccord says that the majority of the beat comes from a rebound in California, Medmen’s core market.
Medmen’s California segment grew 24.4% quarter over quarter. Canaccord says that the companies increased gross margins are “a result of increased operating leverage at the company’s remaining cultivation/manufacturing facilities.”
Canaccord re-touches on the Tilray and $100 million investment, saying that everyone was a winner in the transaction. Tilray now has a path to the US cannabis sector and Medmen has a reduced near-term interest and debt burden. They write, “After updating our model for a slightly reduced risk profile in CA and factoring in the company’s recent debt assumption from Tilray as well as its subsequent ~$100M equity financing, we believe the company’s turnaround prospects continue to improve.”
