Taking into account the changing retail landscape due to COVID-19, Captor maintains a cautionary approach to its growth strategy and a keen focus on maximizing revenues from its current investments. Captor’s retail footprint will support top line revenue expansion while strict standard operating procedures, centralized business activities, and a comprehensive enterprise mentality will correlate to income statement improvements, as witnessed in the quarter ending June 30, 2020 by the significant increase not only in revenues, but more importantly in gross profit, as the Company continues to reduce overall cost of goods and increase profit margins. Developing retail locations in mature, high-density markets, economies of scale will continue to drive down costs and create value as product purchasing power increases through Captor Retail Group.
In conjunction with the release of the unaudited financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2020 the Company provided a corporate update on Captor Retail Group (“CRG”).
Captor and Three Habitat have implemented consistent operational, procedural, accounting, and human resources procedures for the five dispensaries – two Chai-branded locations and three One Plant locations – that are currently being operated by Captor Retail Group under a management agreement between the parties. The legal team put together by Captor Capital and One Plant is in the process of transferring all licenses to CRG. Simultaneously, CRG is proceeding with the construction process on the One Plant Antioch location, which is scheduled to be the sixth CRG dispensary in operation, with an estimated construction completion date of October 2020.
On November 20, 2018, the Company announced it had signed a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) to acquire an entity that has submitted an application pending approval for a cannabis dispensary in Santa Barbara County, California (the “Seller”). Under the terms of the transaction, Captor was to acquire 99 per cent of the equity interests in the Seller. The entity was being sold by an affiliate of Three Habitat Consulting, who was due to receive an aggregate of US $1,300,000 (the “Purchase Price”). The entity originally pursued under this LOI is different from the Goleta location referenced in the media release of August 10, 2020 announcing the formation of CRG. Captor is currently considering strategic options regarding the LOI for the Goleta Dispensary referenced in the November 20, 2018 media release.
