Today's podcast overview/transcript

Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of "Potcast" featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts

In today’s podcast we look at a few early announcements.

Waterloo Brewing Ltd. (TSX: WBR), Ontario's first Craft Brewery, announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 28, 2019. Waterloo Brewing reported EBITDA of $3.6 million on net revenue of $17.0 million.

"We are extremely pleased with our overall second-quarter results.  The incremental investment in our brands resulted in strong volume growth, enhanced revenue, margin expansion, and improved EBITDA performance.  Despite the 3.4% drop in overall Ontario beer industry volume, the Laker family grew 12% and our summer-themed brands LandShark® and Margaritaville® grew 14%,`` commented George Croft, President, and Chief Executive Officer.

"Our warehouse expansion, cannabis-infused beverage facility, non-alcoholic beer equipment, and new Small Batch Brewhouse / Taphouse are all on schedule and on budget.  We are unbelievably excited about the impacts that these projects will bring to the organization in terms of new capacity, new capabilities, and product innovation", commented Russell Tabata, Chief Operating Officer.

Solid top-line revenue growth of 5.8% delivered positive margin recovery in the second quarter.  Despite the negative pressure caused by competitive pricing and increased taxes, margins have returned to a plus 30% level. "Co-pack continues to be a strong and healthy part of the business and continues to generate incremental cash flow. YTD the business has grown 9.7% and we expect strong growth for the balance of the year," commented George Croft.

Waterloo Brewing's board of directors has approved the quarterly dividend at $0.025/share.  The dividend is payable on October 30, 2019, to shareholders of record as of October 16, 2019.

EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENWannounced that the Company has received a second 10kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) equipment purchase order from Ashgrove Cheese Ltd Pty (“Ashgrove”), a diversified, family-owned Australian dairy processor based in Northern Tasmania.

In May 2017, Ashgrove secured a license from EnWave for the exclusive right to use REV™ technology to process dried snack cheese products for direct retail distribution in Australia. In exchange for this exclusivity, Ashgrove has agreed to pay EnWave a 5% royalty on the wholesale price of all REV™-dried products sold.

Ashgrove’s successful development and launch of their Amazeballs cheese snack product stimulated this second purchase order. Amazeballs is the first Australian made dehydrated cheese snack. It’s crafted from the Ashgrove Farm milk supply and was a way for our consumers to get the protein and nutrients they need in an easy-to-eat dairy format. Amazeballs is currently available broadly in the Australian grocery market ecosystem in six distinct flavours – Cheddar, Havarti, Pizza Supreme, Apple Cider Vinegar and Chive, Sweet Chili and Sour Cream and Salted Caramel.

EnWave is a Vancouver-based advanced technology company that has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.

REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis.

EnWave has introduced REV™ as a disruptive dehydration platform in the food and cannabis sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently offers two distinct commercial REV™ platforms:
  1. nutraREV® which is a drum-based system that dehydrates organic materials quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and,
  2. quantaREV® which is a tray-based system used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
Enwave was also recently added to the Cannabis ETF (NYSE:THCX) and discussed in our own Inverstorideas interview with Matt Markiewicz which you can listen to here.
