Flora Growth (NASDAQ: FLGC) is a global leader in the cultivation, marketing, and distribution of premium-quality cannabis products and brands at below-market prices. Flora Growth recently announced that the company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) has authorized the repurchase of up to $5 million of its outstanding common shares subject to market conditions and the company’s liquidity warrant (https://ibn.fm/MN24h).
Luis Merchan, Flora’s Chairman and CEO, stated that the potential to repurchase their shares at these levels represents a compelling opportunity to deploy available cash to drive shareholder value. The company’s board believes that the decline in the market price of shares is due to the generally weak financial market and cannabis sector. It is also attributed to the recent selling of several millions of shares by certain shareholders who acquired such shares at a very low-cost basis, prior the company’s had its IPO, and who had previously been subject to a one-year lockup period which expired in mid-May.
Repurchases may be made from time to time through open market purchases, and, in no event shall the company repurchase more than five percent of the total number of issued and outstanding shares as of the repurchase date.
Flora’s 249-acre cultivation facility Cosechemos, based in Colombia, is the core of the company’s business model. The ideal location, resources, and climatic conditions at the Cosechemos farm, enable Flora’s low production cost which is approximately $0.06/gram, compared to production costs that can be as high as $1/gram or more in parts of North America (https://ibn.fm/AmzIv).
On Feb 22, 2022, Columbia’s President Duque approved a previously announced legislation expanding on Resolution 811. The new Resolution 227 allows the industrial use of cannabis in sectors such as food, beverages and textile. This new regulation will further pave way for increased revenues for the company (https://ibn.fm/IKQjp). Recently, Flora also solidified its foothold in the U.S., by acquiring the luxury cannabis consumer brand Vessel Brand Inc.
