Last month, Xtraction Services (XS.CN) commenced trading on the Canadian Stock Exchange and this is a new listing that we are excited about.
During the last year, there has been a significant rise in the number of public cannabis companies. One of the reasons we are excited about Xtraction Services is related to the business model that is in place and we are bullish on the growth prospects associated with it.
Cannabis specialty finance represents one of the most attractive verticals in the cannabis industry and this is a market that Xtraction Services has been laser focused on. By specializing in providing equipment leasing solutions for manufacturing, testing, and packaging of equipment for both cannabis and hemp in the United States, the company has been able to differentiate itself from the competition and offer a product needed by all operators.
Xtraction services has been nothing short of an execution story and last month, the company announced the launch of their highly anticipated equipment sale-leaseback program. This unique program provides existing cannabis and hemp oil processors with the opportunity to unlock additional working capital without any interruptions to production.
Demand for extracted products (CBD and THC) continues to increase and this is a trend that is expected to continue for the foreseeable future as new products and methods of consumption continue to expand. Beauty and infused products have seen increasing demand for and all of these products require extracts. As the need for cannabis and hemp oil continues to increase in a capital-constrained marketplace, many oil processors are challenged to find the capital resources to expand and scale their business. By providing the necessary high-quality equipment through leasing and sale-leaseback programs, Xtraction Services reduces the need for large up-front capital investments, allowing for increased flexibility and growth potential.
XS has Attractive and Visible Growth Prospects
Xtraction Services has partnered with dozens of leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) as part of their Preferred Vendor Program to provide equipment financing solutions for end-use customers. The company offers a full-scale trade-in and refurbishment program for its customers and offers lease and royalty programs in-house to ensure long-term client retention and to maximize up-sell and cross-sell opportunities. OEM partners are also now offering the sale-leaseback product to their existing customers. This product provides access to working capital from prior purchases, which can be used for expansion equipment and other growth initiatives.
Another reason we are enthusiastic about Xtraction Services is due to the growth opportunity associated with the product/demand. The company has created a highly scalable model that has been gaining significant traction and this is an attractive structure that allows Xtraction Services to set payment terms to maximize return.
With more than 300 processors in the pipeline, Xtraction Services has attractive and visible growth prospects. Over the next year, we expect to see the business expand into new markets and territories and this is something that we are excited about.
A New Listing to be Watching
During the last few months, the cannabis sector has been under pressure and this is a trend that we have been closely following. Xtraction Services completed a go-public transaction during this period and has been under pressure as a result of this. We believe that the weakness is overdone and this is an opportunity to put on your radar.
Over the next year, we expect Xtraction Services to record strong fundamental growth as it continues to execute and this is something that we believe is underappreciated by the street. Xtraction Services is led by a management team with a proven track record of success and we are favorable on the way the story has advanced so far this year.
Going forward, we expect to see increasing demand for cannabis oil and Xtraction Services is positioned to capitalize on this. This is a cannabis extraction business that we are excited about and if you would like to learn more, please reach out firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our distribution list.
