Why We Like OrganiGram (OGI) at These Levels

With the overall bearish sentiment dragging the cannabis sector down, OrganiGram (OGI) might be a “diamond in the rough” that’s just caught in a sector-wide selloff. Although the stock is currently trading not far off of its 52-week lows, we believe OGI is a solid cannabis company, caught in an unfavorable environment…

OGI is a cannabis producer based out of New Brunswick, Canada.  They will produce at least 100,000 kilos of annual output, if they fully build out their cultivation assets.

The fact that they are located in eastern Canada is an advantage because of the cannabis-use rates. The amount of cannabis that adults in the eastern provinces consume is much higher than the Canadian average.

Although not as populated as the rest of Canada, the eastern provinces give OGI a solid consumer base. The company is also one of five licensed producers, with a license to sell in all 10 provinces.

OGI is the only decent sized cannabis producer in the province with one single location.  The fact that OrganiGram has just one location makes it much easier and cost-effective for the company on many levels, especially logistics.

OGI has a very unique way of growing cannabis at their Moncton facility. The company uses a three-tier system that allows for about 3 times the cannabis being grown in the same space as their competitors. This ensures efficiency and cost savings when it comes to their capacity footprint.

Another thing we like about the company is the fact that they focus on high margin products. OGI invested $15 million Canadian dollars into a fully automated line that will enable the company to produce roughly 4 million kilograms of infused chocolates per year.

We have seen that cannabis companies that increase their size too quickly, often have significant losses, rather than profits, and some even have weak balance sheets, like Aurora Cannabis (ACB).  In September 2019, ACB reported a C$40 million EBITDA loss.

However, OGI has had measured growth and was even profitable in their last quarter’s earnings report.  In January, they announced…
