OrganiGram Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:OGI) And Pax Era Strike A Brand Partnership Deal

Cannabis industry player OrganiGram Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:OGI) has announced that it secured a deal with Pax Era as one of its four partners in the launch of its products in Canada.

Pax Era is the premium brand that sells oil vaporizers made by a major consumer tech firm called PAX Labs, Inc. On the other hand, OrganiGram has established itself as a leader in the production of cannabis products. The deal between the two firms means OrganiGram will be among the four partners that will play a part in Pax’s launch in Canada.

Pax plans to venture into the Canadian market before the end of the year pending the legalization of cannabis concentrates in the North American country. Organigram is an ideal partner for Pax because they both have similar product portfolios that focus on class-leading technology that has the potential to refine the vaping experience for Canadians.

“Innovative partnerships with exceptional companies like PAX mean our own product offering grows and our customers have access to cutting-edge technology and cannabis experiences,” stated Greg Engel.

Pax wants to be at the top of the game as far as cannabis-based vape products are concerned

The deal with Pax aligns with Organigram’s commitment towards achieving leadership and growth through the help of innovative technologies. OrganiGram will provide Pax pods made by Edison Cannabis Co. so that they can be distributed by its provincial partners in the coastal region. The entire sales and distribution process will be carried out in line with extractable products legislation in Canada.

Organigram has been busy developing an impressive portfolio of concentrate in preparation for Cannabis 2.0 vape pens as well as edibles which are scheduled to launch later this year. Engel noted that his company’s team has constantly been working on improving and producing products that will please customers.

Canada is one of the fastest growing markets for cannabis products courtesy of legalization efforts. This makes it an attractive market for many companies that deal with the cannabis industry. Pax Era aims to secure a steady market for its products in the country with OrganiGram’S help.

OrganiGram Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:OGRMF) recently released its Q2 results for its fiscal year 2019, revealing that it achieved a record net revenue of $26.9 million.

Organigram is a licensed, leading cannabis producer and it released the results of its Q2 ended February 28, 2019 on Monday last week. The Q2 report also featured the first full quarter of the company’s sales related to adult use of recreational marijuana. Organigram CEO Greg Engel stated that Q2, FY19 represents the second consecutive quarter that the financial results demonstrated operational excellence. The performance also helped to achieve the record $26.9 million net revenue.

We executed very well again this quarter and have established Organigram as one of the leaders in the Canadian adult-use recreational market,” stated Mr. Engel.

Organigram expects the strong performance to continue for the rest of the year especially with the various initiatives that it has this year. This includes the upcoming edibles and derivative launch scheduled to take place during autumn 2019. The company is excited about the growth opportunities that will come with the new products as well as the strategic partnerships and expanding capacity.

Aside from the $26.9 million net revenue that the company achieved during its Q2 2019, it also reported a $33.5 million gross revenue. It also reported its cost of cultivation per gram at $0.65 and its “all-in” cultivation cost at $0.85. The latter includes the share-based compensation and the non-cash depreciation.

Expansion efforts

The company is currently working on its Moncton facility’s Phase 4 expansion through which it will create 92 incremental grow rooms. They will be added in stages and Organigram expects to complete the construction process before the end of 2019. Having additional grow rooms will triple the company’s current production capacity.

The firm is currently refurbishing its Phase 5 expansion on the extra 56,000 square feet in its facility. The ongoing refurbishment should bring it to European Union GMP level of standards as part of Organigram’s efforts to create more extraction capacity. The company expects the Phase 5 construction to be complete by October this year. These expansion efforts will effectively increase the company’s production capacity and thus boost its revenue.

OrganiGram Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:OGRMF) Reaches 1 Million Pre-roll Production Milestone

OrganiGram Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:OGRMF) closed its trading session on Thursday at $5.93, just a few weeks after it announced that it achieved a major production milestone with more than 1 million pre-rolls.

The company announced at the end of January 2018 that it reached the 1 million cannabis pre-roll production mark, a significant milestone for OrganiGram ever since recreational cannabis use gained legal status in 2018. The firm managed to achieve an impressive milestone mainly because it automated its production processes. It also owes the achievement to the strong consumer demand in the market which encourages the company to scale its production.

“At Organigram, we are proud to be among a select group of licensed producers who have been able to rise to the challenge of large-scale pre-roll production,” stated OrganiGram CEO Greg Engel.

Engel also noted that OrganiGram’s operations team did a great job by automating critical parts of the production process. This allowed the company to increase its overall production process while still maintaining its product quality. The firm is now one of the major players in Canada’s rapidly growing cannabis industry. Its supply chain currently spans all the provinces in the country except Quebec.

OrganiGram and Valens GroWorks Corp Sign multi-year extraction deal

OrganiGram also closed January with the announcement that it had secured a multi-year cannabis extraction deal with Valens GroWorks Corp. The latter deals with the provision of cannabis-based products and services pertaining to cannabis distillation, custom extraction methods, isolation, and purification. It also focuses on quality testing.

OrganiGram will allow Valens to extract trim and cannabis flowers from its Moncton operation so that they can generate extract concentrate. OrganiGram will then use the concentrate in its cannabis oils production process. The company also plans to use the concentrate in vaporizable and edible cannabis products. Valens CEO Tyler Robson stated that his company was excited to be one of OrganiGram’s trusted partners. He also added that Valens is proud to be working with firms such as OrganiGram towards creating innovative technologies that will then cater to the long-term needs of clients.
