Upon Completion Phase 1 is Projected to Generate $27M USD Gross Sales Annually
TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the first phase of construction at the Company's new Daly facility is just two weeks from completion, with plants in its first cultivation room already underway.
To date, the Company has completed the build-out of a 4,481 square foot cultivation room containing 112 lights, a general distribution area, and a processing room. Initial planting was completed in the first of five cultivation rooms in May. The remaining four cultivation rooms will be operational on or about July 14, with each room planned to harvest at least once this fiscal year.
"This is our most critical phase as it will empower us towards our goal to become operationally cash-flow positive within the year," said Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO.
In total, the five rooms will produce approximately 4,800 lbs of harvest annually, generating a potential of over $15M USD in gross sales each year. The Company is confident that the incremental cultivation capacity of these rooms can create cash-flow positive operating results in the current fiscal year.
Phase 1 construction also includes industrial scale distribution and processing build-outs that will enable TransCanna to provide processing, packaging, storage, distribution and transporting services to third-party growers. The Company intends to generate additional revenue streams of over $1M USD per month from services to third-party farms.
Facilities completed in Daly Phase 1 construction include 8,000 square feet of processing space for drying, curing and semi-automated trimming; a 6,000 square foot packaging area with space for automated scaling, pouching, and sealing activities; 11,000 square feet of climate controlled storage space for bulk and retail-ready finished goods; and 7,000 square feet of secure, enclosed transportation vehicle loading bay area.
The Company reasonably expects the combined cultivation, processing, packaging and distribution activities made possible by Phase 1 construction to potentially generate $27M USD annually.
Throughout Phase 1, the Company continued to maximize output at its Jerusalem facility, which generated $5.3M USD in revenue from its cultivation, distribution and nursery activities in 2020. TransCanna fully intends to maintain all business activities at Jerusalem and has been using the facility for training key team members in preparation for the roll-out at Daly.
