Stocks discussed: (TSXV:BITF) (NasdaqGS:FB)

 

Bitcoin (BTC) is down. After nearing its all-time trading price high on Wednesday, the cryptocurrency fell around $3,000 from close to $19,400 to as low as about $16,470, according to data from CoinMarketCapThis roughly 12 percent drop is the biggest decline seen in the market since March of this year, when Bitcoin crashed from about $7,900 down to around $4,475. A report from CoinDesk quotes Ki Young Ju, CEO at analytics firm CryptoQuant:

 

“I think this is a correction before we break $20,000. Other long-term on-chain indicators like BTC and stablecoin reserve say the potential buying pressure still prevails so far.”

 

An article responding to the selloff and subsequent crash from Bloomberg outlines indications that Bitcoin is in a more robust position than its 2017 bull run and ensuing crash.The article quotes Mati Greenspan, chief executive of market advisory firm Quantum Economics in Tel Aviv:

 

“It’s different now. The last time we saw Bitcoin get this high, the blockchain was close to collapsing, but the network has had improvements since then.”

 

Bitfarms Ltd. (TSXV:BITF) has announced its financial and operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020. Highlights include revenues of $6.8 million, gross mining profit of $1.6 million, and the entering into lease agreements for 3,000 Whatsminer Miners. Mauro Ferrara, Interim Chief Financial Officer of Bitfarms, said:

 

"As anticipated, the May 2020 Bitcoin Halving event negatively impacted most of our financial metrics for the quarter. However, gross mining profit and adjusted EBITDA remained in positive territory, and Bitcoin mining economics have stabilized and improved significantly subsequent to Q3. Operationally, we added one thousand WhatsMiner M31S in September, increasing mining computing power by approximately 82PH/s.”

 

The Financial Times reports that Libra, the digital payments project from Facebook (NasdaqGS:FB), may launch in the form of a U.S. dollar-backed stablecoin in January of 2021. The exact launch date is still unknown, and is pending on approval by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). Though beginning by being backed by the U.S. dollar, Libra will gradually see the addition of more fiat currencies into the basket of assets that go toward its value.

Transcript

In today’s episode of Investorideas “Betting on Gaming Stocks” Podcast we look at a few public company announcements.

 

Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company (OTCQB:WINRannounced that it has acquired three additional franchisee owned esports gaming centers, two of which are in Texas, and one in Montana. These gaming centers, combined with other acquisition targets previously announced, generated over $2,700,000 in combined revenues in 2019. These acquisitions give Simplicity a total of 12 corporate owned gaming centers, in addition to numerous other franchisee owned gaming centers.

 

Roman Franklin, President of Simplicity Esports, stated, “I am thrilled to announce three more gaming center acquisitions. These acquisitions, along with existing corporate owned gaming centers, gives us ownership of 12 of the top 25 revenue producing gaming centers across our nationwide footprint during the month of February 2020. The percentage rent leases significantly reduce fixed operating costs for each gaming center, and we expect the gaming centers to be cash flow positive within 30 days of acquisition.”

 

These acquisitions allow Simplicity Esports to report the full revenues generated by these gaming centers on a consolidated basis.

 

In addition to these acquisitions, Simplicity Esports has executed non-binding letters of intent for the acquisition of four additional esports gaming centers with new percentage rent leases from landlords. The four additional acquisitions are expected to close by December 15, 2020.

 

Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (TSX: EGLX)(OTCQB: ENGMF), the largest gaming platform in North America, connecting with over 300 million gamers monthly worldwide, recently concluded its Enthusiast Gaming Live Experience 2020 (“EGLX 2020”), a fusion of video games, esports, music, fashion, and lifestyle content and events. Supported by key sponsors, including SpiderTech, G FUEL and TikTok, the virtual event featured world premieres, unique performances and thrilling competitions - all live streamed to millions across the globe.

 

Entering its fifth year - the four-day free event was live streamed on eglx.com and on the Company’s main Twitch channel: LG Loyal at twitch.tv/lgloyal. With a main broadcast centre in Toronto, multiple feeds were simultaneously streamed from all over the world in real-time, from as far away as Australia. The Toronto production and control centre hosted three cameras on-site and LED-lit walls and lighting were used to further enhance the viewer experience. Altogether, the digital event drew over 12 million viewers, totaling 53 hours of live streamed content during the event.

 

In addition to performances by musicians ZHU and Goldlink, and appearances from NFL Stars Richard Sherman and Darius Slay, the event hosted a variety of announcements. Luminosity Gaming, Enthusiast Gaming’s esports organization, which counts 70 million fans, hosted the finale of its Rising Stars reality competition to find the next gaming superstar, which included more than a month of preliminary challenges and judging. With a panel featuring top Luminosity content creators FĂ©lix “xQc” Lengyel and Elliott “Muselk” Watkins, up-and-coming streamer, BabyCappah, was announced as the winner and was awarded a $100,000 Luminosity Gaming sponsorship. Fortnite pro Nicholas “Nick Eh 30” Amyoony was also signed to Luminosity Gaming’s roster where he will continue to create family-friendly content.

 

“We are tremendously proud of how much EGLX has grown over the past five years, from a small cottage event to a premium, tier 1 gaming and esports fan experience. We look forward to continuing to create new and unique content experiences for our fans like Rising Stars and Gamers Got Talent, that consistently attract new sponsors and create additional content distribution opportunities on other platforms,” shared Adrian Montgomery, CEO of Enthusiast Gaming. “EGLX, which has traditionally been a live, in-person event, pivoted this year to a digital format. I could not be more pleased with the finished product that drew an audience of over 12 million. During a time when we are all physically separated - gaming has a unique advantage in its online communities that have existed for years, and we want to continue building on them through events like EGLX where they can all come together.”

 

Additional event highlights included:

      The Escapist Magazine’s Games Showcase

      Gamers Got Talent with guest judges, Anomaly, Justin Guarini, runner-up on the first season of American Idol and hosted by Corey Mandell and Dreezy

      SlayVS, NFL star Darius Slay joined fellow NFL players Richard Sherman and the Griffin Twins and American Rap Artist Goldlink to play a friendly game of Call of Duty Warzone

      Call of Duty Tournament hosted by RockyNoHands

      The Sims Resource LIVE featuring designs by Louise Goldin and hosted by Sims content creator and streamer, Deligracy

      Pocket Gamer Launchpad, celebrating new, upcoming or updated iOS and Android games

 

 

GameSquare Esports Inc. (CSE: GSQ), a Canadian gaming and esports company, announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares in Reciprocity Corp., a privately held gaming and esports company. Under the terms of the LOI, GameSquare Esports will issue 43,750,000 common shares of GameSquare to the shareholders of Reciprocity. Under the terms of the LOI, Reciprocity shareholders will receive 10 million additional GameSquare common shares if the Reciprocity business generates a minimum of US$5 million of revenue and US$1 million of EBITDA within 12 months of closing and an additional 10 million GameSquare common shares if the Reciprocity business generates a minimum of US$7 million of revenue and US$1.4 million of EBITDA within 12 months of closing. The Acquisition remains subject to, among other things, the parties entering into a definitive agreement, applicable shareholder and regulatory approvals. The combination of GameSquare and Reciprocity is expected to significantly increase the revenue profile of the combined entity and to result in a company that generates positive EBITDA in the twelve months following the close of the transaction.

 

“The acquisition of Reciprocity is another step toward building Canada’s leading esports company,” said Kevin Wright, CEO of GameSquare. “The team at Reciprocity has built a great organization that I believe will change the way the market looks at esports investing. Reciprocity and its wholly owned subsidiary GCN, Inc. (“GCN”) are led by industry veterans that understand the convergence of media, entertainment, sports and finance as shown by the top tier clients that GCN works with, while committing to growing an EBITDA positive business. I have high expectations of the leadership at Reciprocity and believe this will prove to be a transformative moment for GameSquare. We also believe the acquisition shows there is tremendous opportunity to acquire other companies serving the esports market that can benefit greatly as part of the GameSquare group of companies.”

 

“The acquisition by GameSquare is the start of another exciting chapter for Reciprocity,” added David Fawcett, CEO of Reciprocity. “We have identified a highly scalable vertical within esports and I believe that bridging the gap between brands, gamers and esports is the path to high revenue growth, EBITDA and the creation of tremendous shareholder value. We work with top tier global brands and see fantastic synergies between our North American operations and GameSquare’s presence in the UK and EU through Code Red Esports. The opportunity to become part of the GameSquare group of companies is anticipated to accelerate our revenue growth and help us to realize our long-term vision of building a significant gaming and esports digital media company.”

 

Reciprocity is a leading Canadian gaming and esports company; its main asset, wholly owned subsidiary GCN, bridges the gap between leading global brands and the gaming and esports community by developing and distributing world-class marketing activations. Additionally, Reciprocity owns 49% of a CrossFire franchise in China with its partner LGD Gaming and 40% of a League of Legends team in LATAM, Rainbow 7; both teams won their respective championships in 2020. GameSquare continues to build its pipeline of potential acquisitions to accelerate growth and scale with a focus on companies with a proven track record of high growth and profitability.

 

Nuvei Corporation (TSX: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI.U), the global payment technology partner of thriving brands, announced today a partnership with Unikrn, the world’s leading esports betting operator. By supporting card acquiring and over 450 alternative payment methods (APMs) and 150 currencies worldwide, Nuvei will enable Unikrn to continue platform expansion as the popularity of esports and online casino gaming grows worldwide.

Unikrn will be using Cashier, Nuvei’s innovative hosted payment page, to process customer transactions worldwide within a single interface — simplifying the customer journey to deposit and redeem funds.

 

Esports has grown from a niche market segment to one that now attracts an audience of approximately 495 million people worldwide due to monumental growth over the last decade and an additional surge of interest during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Unikrn, the two-time winner of EGR’s Esports Operator of the Year, is a global gaming operator uniquely positioned to take advantage of this explosive growth. Founded in 2014 by the former CEO of Microsoft Ventures, the company is currently active in 24 countries, including 41 states in the U.S. Unikrn offers a wide range of online gaming options on one platform, from its award-winning innovations in 24/7 virtual esports and skill-betting on popular online games, to sports betting and even a suite of traditional casino games.

 

Nuvei’s Cashier is designed to handle high volumes of international payments reliably and securely, while maintaining regulatory compliance. It provides a localized interface and is integrated with nearly 150 global currencies and hundreds of local payment methods, ensuring a seamless payment experience for users in over 200 global markets. It also comes embedded with tools proven to minimize abandonment and offers industry-leading payouts.

 

Unikrn's customer base continues to grow in both size and diversity. This has brought the new challenge of catering to customers with different preferences as to payment method, currency and language, while maintaining a seamless and enjoyable user experience. With its steadily expanding global footprint and supporting the industry’s most extensive list of APMs and currencies, Nuvei was the evident choice to solve this problem.

 

"Unikrn offers our global customer base access to an unrivaled spectrum of gaming experiences without interruption," said Rahul Sood, co-founder of Unikrn. "Nuvei was the best option for us to ensure we meet these expectations and offer a platform that will scale with our rapid growth. Cashier makes our customers' payment journey safe and seamless. We look forward to working with Nuvei for many years to come."

Today’s podcast overview/transcript:

 

Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of Investorideas.com "Potcast" featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.

 

In today’s podcast we will be looking at a few private and public company announcements.

 

High Tide Inc. (TSXV: HITI) (OTCQB: HITIF), a retail-focused cannabis corporation enhanced by the manufacturing and distribution of consumption accessories, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Valiant Distribution Canada Inc., has signed a trademark license agreement with JW Homegoods, LLC to use the "Jane West" and "JW" trademarks for a term of 2 years (the "Jane West License"). Jane West is a high-profile American cannabis activist, influencer and founder of her global lifestyle brand. The Jane West License grants Valiant the right to manufacture, promote, advertise, distribute and sell certain types of consumption accessories in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union.

 

The royalty-based merchandising agreement includes the production of vaporizers, glass filtration devices, grinders and rolling trays, among other items. "We are excited to launch Jane West-branded products into the international legal smoke shop market as soon as possible, following the success of her established glassware line that has been widely distributed across North America," said Andy Palalas, Chief Revenue Officer of High Tide. "As the founder of Women Grow, creator of her popular glassware line and developer of a rapidly growing set of packaging partnerships, Jane is a visionary and we will be privileged to work alongside her to develop her next line of consumption accessories," added Mr. Palalas. Under its wholesale business segment, High Tide expects to design and distribute these new products as part of the established Famous Brandz line of consumption accessories, which currently includes the brands of Snoop Dogg Pounds, Cheech and Chong's Up In Smoke, Trailer Park Boys, Jay and Silent Bob, Guns N' Roses and more.

 

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB), the Canadian company defining the future of cannabinoids worldwide, announced today it has entered into a strategic Supply Agreement with Cantek Holdings , one of Israel's leaders in the medical cannabis field.

 

Under the terms of the Agreement, Aurora will supply Cantek with dried bulk flower over a two-year period, with the option to extend. The Company intends to provide Cantek with a minimum of 4,000 kgs of bulk dried flower annually, which will be processed into finished product, and co-branded under the Aurora and Cantek brand names for the Israeli market with the potential for additional international market sales.  Having secured all necessary export and import permits, the initial shipment of cannabis under the Agreement occurred during the week of November 16, 2020.

 

"We are excited about our strategic relationship with Cantek, a leader in the Israeli market. This Agreement provides Aurora with a great opportunity to expand our medical cannabis brand and industry leading science in one of our key international markets of focus," said Miguel Martin, Chief Executive Officer of Aurora. "Today's announcement demonstrates more than just a supply agreement. It's about the strength and quality of the Aurora medical brand being validated once again by the world's medical cannabis markets, including countries like Israel in which we had no distribution prior to today. We consider this Agreement to be a significant step for Aurora, and we look forward to bringing our high-quality medical cannabis products to patients in Israel."

 

"We are proud to partner with Aurora, a global leader who shares with us the same quality values and commitments of meeting patients' needs and improving their quality of life. This is a vote of confidence in Cantek's leadership and the Israeli market," said Netsah Israel, Chief Executive Officer of Cantek."

 

Cantek is one of the leading Medical Cannabis enterprises in Israel, with a foothold across the entire value chain of the medical cannabis industry in Israel. Cantek holds strategic partnerships with prominent drugstore chains, distribution companies, clinics and is deeply involved with Israel's growing medical cannabis patient community.

 

Aurora is now strategically positioned in two of the largest legal medical cannabis markets outside of Canada – Germany and now Israel, one of the largest importers of medical cannabis in the world. The Company plans to continue to leverage its market leadership as it further develops its medical cannabis markets internationally in key markets.

 

Neptune Wellness Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEPT) (TSX: NEPT), a diversified and fully integrated health and wellness company focused on natural, plant-based, sustainable and purpose-driven lifestyle brands, announced today it has secured its first purchase orders of its own inhouse developed Cannabis brand Mood Ring™ products to the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch (BCLDB), the wholesaler and public retailer of non-medical cannabis throughout the province.

 

Neptune's Mood Ring™ products, namely High CBD Oil and High CBD Capsules will be available for purchase in December through the BC Cannabis Store online, in addition to its 24 government-run retail locations across British Columbia. Additionally, the Mood Ring™ product line will be available to the 295 private licensed retailers in British Columbia. The products are manufactured at the Company's purpose-built facility in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Neptune's other Mood Ring™ products, namely Classic Hashish and Legacy Hashish use the Company's newly implemented and proprietary solventless extraction for THC concentrates.

 

In further developments relating to Neptune's cannabis business activities, Neptune's Chief Executive Office and President Michael Cammarata stated:

       The Company is readying itself for future expansion in adult use-cannabis and global hemp, beginning in the United States with the potential for legalization of cannabis under President-Elect Joe Biden.

       In the U.S., Neptune believes its unique product offerings will likewise position the Company to enter what will be a highly lucrative market and to meet consumer demand with market-leading, dependable and responsible 'Made in the USA' brands.

       Neptune will open a Florida-based office in March 2021 to focus on U.S. legislation matters in Cannabis and global growth opportunities. This office will lead the Company's international institutional advocacy program to drive the conversion of cannabis from an illicit to regulated market.

       Dr. Sibel Uslu has joined Neptune as its Vice President of Product Development, leading all the Company's product development activities for cannabis, hemp, isolates and other specialty ingredients for new and innovative commercial products in order to continuously expand Neptune's brand portfolio.

       To date, Neptune has brought 16 SKUs to market this fiscal year — 11 of which are in adult use-cannabis and global hemp and a further five in health and wellness innovation.

       The Company's mission is to become the brand leader in cannabis and we have established a KPI program that we believe will deliver new and innovative SKUs for the next five successive quarters.

       The Company has pledged to be cruelty-free/not tested on animals in its manufacturing.

       Neptune is proactively negotiating with brand ambassadors to build, accelerate and increase product offerings across various generations and demographics.

 

"In Canada, Neptune anticipates further purchase orders imminently, following the signing of a supply agreement with Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), the wholesaler and sole online retailer for recreational cannabis in Ontario, for the sale and distribution of Mood Ring™. The Company is now working with additional provincial boards to register products and increase the distribution capabilities for Mood Ring™," said Mr. Cammarata.

 

Neptune has secured access to a footprint for Mood Ring™ totalling 567 retail stores across the two Canadian provinces, with the opportunity to scale to additional retailers in additional provinces upon securing supply agreements.

 

Dr. Toni Rinow, Neptune's Chief Financial Officer and Global Operating Officer, added: "Our strategic decision to focus on the innovation of health and wellness and the superingredients that are cannaboids is based on our belief that we are standing on the edge of a plant-based transformation, driven as a result of changing consumer demand. When we look at the global market, the overall acceptance of cannabis is high across generations with 40-plus countries exploring a legal cannabis framework. What's more, estimates suggest the global market opportunity could be in excess of $250 billion within 15 years.

 

"What seperates Neptune from its competitors is our mission to bring cannabis to the world to harness its wide range of applications for use in anti-fungal, antibacterial, and moisturizing products. Neptune is committed to innovation. We plan to  integrate cannabinoids into products from toothpaste to deodorants, hand sanitizers and to other everyday household usage products. It starts with our business in Canada, followed with an expansion into the U.S. and other countries. This is part of Neptune's commitment to deliver shareholder value — and to redefine the cannabis industry by providing sustainable consumer focused solutions."

 

Village Farms International, Inc. (NASDAQ: VFF) (TSX: VFFtoday announced that its wholly owned Canadian cannabis subsidiary, Pure Sunfarms, has entered into an agreement

with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers Inc., a subsidiary of Shoppers Drug Mart Inc, under which Pure Sunfarms will  supply a range of its branded, high quality, B.C.-grown cannabis products to be made available to Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™ customers. Shoppers is Canada's leading health, beauty and convenience retailer, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Loblaw Companies Limited.

 

Supported by specially-trained Pharmacists, the Medical Cannabis by Shoppers™ online store is the largest national cannabis marketplace in Canada. Pure Sunfarms expects selected dried flower products to be available for sale on the Medical Cannabis by Shoppers ecommerce portal nationally as early as the beginning of December of this year and selected pre-roll, bottled oil and vape products to be available in early 2021.  Pure Sunfarms' 28-gram (1-ounce) package offering will be the first large-format cannabis offering listed by Medical Cannabis by Shoppers.

 

"We are proud to partner with one of Canada's largest and most respected retailers to provide Canadian medical cannabis patients nationwide access to the same high-quality products that have made Pure Sunfarms one of the best-selling cannabis brands in our market," said Mandesh Dosanjh, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pure Sunfarms. "This partnership lays the foundation for both companies to realize future opportunities as the retail and medical cannabis landscape evolves in Canada."

 

Lastly today, as we celebrate our 500th episode of Investorideas.com “Potcasts”, I’ve included my list of favorite interviews we’ve had over the years which I’ve highly recommend going back and listening to.

 

Tommy Chong: Obviously interviewing Tommy Chong has been one of my personal career highlights as his name has been synonymous with Cannabis for decades and he has not only been personally incarcerated for his involvement with cannabis but has also helped shaped cannabis culture today.

 

Montel Williams:This was one of our first high profile interviews on the podcast and one that certainly set a high bar for all future interviews. Montel was very generous with his time and is another cannabis activist has worked for years to help better educate and inform the public on the medical benefits of cannabis, specifically for M.S.

 

Havn Life Sciences: This interview with Tim Moore and Susan Chapelle, the Co-CEO’s of Havn Life Sciences was our first interview surrounding the psychedelic industry and provided some great insight into the future of psilocybin research.

 

Shavo Odadjin: As a minor musician myself it was a real pleasure getting to speak with Shavo from System of the Down about his cannabis lifestyle brand and how cannabis has helped inspire and influence his music career.

 

Chef Joe Sasto: Another personal inspiration of mine, Chef Joe Sasto has been inspiring many cannabis cooks across North America with his Farm to Table cannabis culinary experiences.

 

Matt Markiewicz: The managing director of the Cannabis ETF, Matt has been on our podcast multiple times and has been one of our most informative guests when it comes to market trends providing bird’s eye view of the cannabis industry.

 

Dooma Wendschuh: The CEO of Province Brands, Dooma is probably one of the most visionary CEO’s we’ve had on the podcast and his company and technology focussed on brewing beer from Hemo I think will be the biggest industry game changer over the long term.

 

Obviously there are many more I could continue to list and I would like to thank all of the guests and experts we’ve had on over these years that have helped us reach 500 episodes.
