Canabo Medical closed an $8.4 million financing agreement at a more than 60% premium to yesterday’s closing price with Canadian licensed medical cannabis producer Aphria.
Canabo Medical owns and operates CMC Clinics, the largest chain of medical cannabis clinics in Canada. The company trades in both the U.S and Canadian stock markets under the symbols CMM.V and CAMDF, respectively.
Aphria Inc. (APH.V) (APHQF) purchased 6 million shares of CMM.V at $1.40 a share and CMM.V closed at $0.86 yesterday. Aphria now owns approximately 16.6% of Canabo’s total issued and outstanding common shares (on an undiluted basis) and we are favorable on this strategic investor.
An Execution Story
Earlier this month, Canabo announced a letter of intent with Peak Medical Group. Under the agreement, Peak will provide clinic space and physicians to assess up to 20,000 new patients under Canabo’s medical marijuana assessment, prescribing, educational procedures and protocols.
Peak Medical Group immediately began to provide training for up to 60 physicians and educators in Canabo’s proprietary training protocols with all resulting patients under this agreement to be enrolled in Canabo’s medical data collection program.
Conducting a Study on 7,500 Patients
When Canabo first announced Aphria’s investment, the company also announced plans to complete a 7,500 patient observational study with Andrew Davis, Ph.D., of Acadia University in 2017.
The study is expected to publish its initial results in late 2017 and complete study findings in 2018. The study will focus on correlations within the patient database in three specific areas:
The relation of opioid use following therapies by condition and patient category
The relation of benzodiazepines use following therapies by condition and patient category
The change in quality of life measurements following therapies by condition and patient category
An Attractive Opportunity
Canabo benefits from having three primary revenue streams: physician consultations, database subscriptions and independent medical evaluation consulting.
We continue to remain favorable on Canabo and expect to see a favorable reaction from the market today. From a valuation standpoint, Canabo is an attractive opportunity and today’s developments further strengthen our opinion on the company.
