Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd (OTCMKTS:TGODF) just announced that it has received its inaugural purchase order from the BC Liquor Distribution Branch, further expanding its Canadian distribution footprint.
According to the release, “the Company also obtained a license amendment from Health Canada, allowing it to launch cultivation operations at its flagship Valleyfield hybrid greenhouse. The addition of British Columbia means that TGOD now has the ability to distribute its products to a total of 527 retail locations across five provinces, or 82% of Canada’s current store count. With the number of cannabis stores poised to increase from 639 to over a thousand in 2020, the Company is continuing to strategically develop and nurture solid relationships with provincial boards and retailers, cementing its position as the leading certified organic brand.”

As noted above, TGODF just announced that it has received its inaugural purchase order from the BC Liquor Distribution Branch, further expanding its Canadian distribution footprint.
Even in light of this news, TGODF has had a rough past week of trading action, with shares sinking something like -15% in that time. That said, chart support is nearby and we may be in the process of constructing a nice setup for some movement back the other way. Moreover, the name has benefitted from a jump in recent trading volume to the tune of 19% above its longer-run average levels.
“TGOD’s high-quality certified organic product and commitment to sustainable cultivation practices resonate with BC consumers. Based on the exceptionally positive feedback we received from our BC medical patients as well as on market research, we believe the province represents an enormous market opportunity for our brand,” commented Brian Athaide, CEO of TGOD. “As we continue ramping up production, we remain focused on expanding our distribution channels and achieving our goal of distributing nationally in Q1 2020.”
Currently trading at a market capitalization of $166M, TGODF has a significant war chest ($63.1M) of cash on the books, which compares with about $68.3M in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. TGODF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $9.7M. However, the company is seeing recent declines on the top-line on a sequential quarterly basis, with revenues falling at -12.8% as of its latest reporting period. We will update the story again soon as further details emerge.
