One of the cannabis industry’s best positioned premium seed-to-sale cannabis brands is experiencing a major growth spurt from west to east. And given their recently-released positive $4.4 million in positive EBIDTDA institutional investors may want to take a long, hard look this Company
Captor Capital Corp. (CSE: CPTR; FRANKFURT: NMV; STUTTGART: NMVA; USOTC: CPTRF) is a vertically-integrated, publicly-traded company with a strong cultivation, extraction, brand, and retail footprint that is now a multi-state operation. In short, Captor is capitalizing on expanding.
“Captor has continued to excel and expand our business model. We’ve executed on our mission to acquire positive cash flowing growth business and in the booming Cannabis industry and integrate them under our brand”
John Zorbas, CEO Captor Capital Corp.
Beyond their California home market, Captor Capital Corp. has made strategic moves into Michigan – the second-most populous state in the country to approve recreational marijuana and the first in the Midwest. The Company recently expanded into Michigan with a partner that has secured critical real estate and coveted limited licenses to cultivate, extract, process, and manufacture in the jurisdiction.
Michigan has become the first state, not on the east or west coast, to legalize adult recreational cannabis use. This a huge milestone for the Midwest, but also for the future of the U.S. Here’s why – America’s coast and Midwest might as well be two different countries regarding public opinion. However, cannabis legalization in Michigan signifies a dramatic shift in public opinion…and it’s quickly gone from prohibition to attracting mainstream bipartisan political support.
Company CEO John Zorbas says that Michigan is an attractive state because it has a mature medical cannabis market and has the second-largest medical cannabis patient base in the US, and the largest per capita. Michigan, with a population of 10 million people, has a larger medical cannabis patient base than Canada.
The hard data speaks for itself – Michigan with 313,000 registered medical cannabis patients, or 3.1%, compared to Canada with a population of approximately 38 million, and 296,000 registered medical patients, or 0.77% where cannabis is fully legal at both provincial and federal levels.
Mr. Zorbas believes the company’s experience operating in a highly-competitive market like California makes Captor well-suited to compete in emerging recreational and medical markets.
Here’s what he had to say about this burgeoning market:
“Michigan represents a significant opportunity market with defined barriers to entry at the local level. Our new partner Samona, with an established retail footprint and seasoned and management team will allow us to rapidly expand and scale the Captor brand and presence.”
In a press release from March 27, 2019, the Toronto based company announced they had “signed a binding agreement which provides the Company the right to acquire certain assets to expand operations into Michigan, pending certain regulatory approvals.”
Details of the agreement are as follows:
- Operation of 20 retail medical cannabis retailers,
- two licenses to operate a cannabis manufacturing, processing, and extraction facility
- eight licenses to operate a 325,000 sq. ft. cannabis cultivation facility
Investors should take note that Michigan has the second highest total number of cannabis medical card holders in the United States, second only to California, but uniquely has the highest per capita licensed medical card holders.
Based on our analysis, the 20 dispensaries annual NET income for the first full year of operation could reach close to $18 million. In addition to that, expectations are for the cannabis cultivation facilities to generate NET income in excess of USD$26 million, bringing the potential total NET income to over USD$44 million.
This is just for the first full year of operation and does not include any possible NET income from the processing licenses.
According to a press release of a research report from CoStar, sales per square foot at most mainstream retailers has declined to an average of around $325 in recent years, down from nearly $375 in the early 2000s. Marijuana Business Factbook estimates sales per square foot average $1,773 at recreational dispensaries and $1,143 at medical dispensaries, showing they are considerably more profitable per square foot than most mainstream retailers.
Why Captor Capital Corp. ?
Captor’s revenue is expected to exceed a run rate of $45 million, through ownership of top brands and high value dispensary locations. Aside from the recent Michigan news, Captor already has operations in the highly regarded state of California, with facilities involved in both manufacturing and distribution. Additionally, Captor has partnerships for cultivation facilities within the state of Washington.
California had total sales of around $2.5 billion of legal cannabis in 2018, which was the first full year of legalized recreational sales. It appears likely Captor will continue to be active player in the U.S. market as they have collaborated with high profile cannabis companies including MedMen Enterprises Inc. (MMEN.CN).
- CHAI Santa Cruz – Capitola Healing Association Inc., or CHAI, is an elite medical and recreational cannabis dispensary known for having the highest testing and lowest cost products in Santa Cruz County. Chai Santa Cruz is committed to providing the highest quality 100% LAB-TESTED HIGH-GRADE INDOOR CULTIVATED Medical and Recreational Cannabis.

- CHAI Castroville (former Higher Level Castroville) dispensary has been awarded both state and local licenses to sell recreational cannabis.

CHAI Castroville is on track to generate approximately $5.5M in gross revenues with adjusted EBITDA of 25% (non IFRS). It is also highly regarded with a 9 out of 5 star rating with over 7,300 reviews on weedmaps.com.
- Mellow Extracts, LLC., which will produce ultra-premium oil in a state-of-the-art extraction lab facility in Costa Mesa, California. Mellow will provide service-for-hire extraction, as well as co-packing capacities for white label and private label cannabis brands focusing on cannabis extracts.
Captor management believes strongly in the prospects and future of the company, as evidenced by a press release on Dec 18th 2018 stating they intend to spend up to $5 million buyback and cancel up to 1,967,650 shares of the company’s stock over the next year.
“Captor is commencing the Bid because it believes that the market price of its Shares does not reflect the underlying value of the Company’s business and future prospects,” said Captor Capital CEO, John Zorbas. “
Captor also recently announced Third Quarter Financial Results including operational highlights expected for the calendar year 2019:
- Launch of CAC’s new E-Commerce delivery business which starts in March 2019.
- Imminent launch of Mellow Extracts extraction and distribution facility in Costa Mesa.
- Establishment of the Chai retail brand across all retail stores and the delivery business.
- Opening of the Goleta, Santa Barbara retail dispensary, subject to regulatory confirmation.
- Opening of the Chai distribution business in Santa Cruz, subject to regulatory confirmation.
- CAC’s launch of its self-manufactured and branded cannabis product lines.
Demand for Cannabis and Cannabis derived products are soaring, and governments are adopting legalization, pressure is mounting on the industry to provide all the necessary production and distribution facilities to meet the growing demand.
However, choosing which of these investments to participate in requires more analysis as some stock prices still have room to come down with multiples still in the stratosphere.

We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose my compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer. We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell my own shares.

Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment.

We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.

The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
When 3rd parties that hire us acquire, purchase and / or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit themselves to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and may fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is a SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions.
If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and/or government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies.
The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities.
