Agoracom interviews CEOs of small cap companies.

In this episode of the Small Cap CEO Interviews podcast, AGORACOM speaks with Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) CEO, Steven McAuley.

At 165,000 patients, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) has a database that almost every medical cannabis and CBD company would kill for. Add in the fact it is now on a ~ $USD 4,000,000 annualized revenue run rate for 2019 and it becomes the kind of company small cap investors have been dying to find as they watch pretender companies melt away.

But it doesn’t end there.

CBD extraction has been a key element of the company’s vertical integration. Producing its’ own CBD products for its own patients just makes sense. Up until a couple of days ago, it was a sound strategy that needed to be executed. As of yesterday, execution arrived thanks to a JV with extraction experts Heritage Cannabis that will light up the Company’s 5,000 sq ft facility in Oregon. Empower brings the infrastructure, Heritage brings the expertise and balance sheet. The result is a match made in shareholder heaven with initial annual capacity of 6,000 Kg at ~ $US 5,000 per Kg, which adds up to $US 30,000,000 in potential revenue.

We emphasize potential because nobody has started selling anything yet and the facility isn’t expected to begin producing for another 3-4 months. However, with a built in patient database and talks already having commenced for white label products, Empower is on its way. Moreover, “potential” cuts both ways, with capacity capable of increasing 2x – 3x without much trouble given the size of the facility.

Can Empower successfully execute its extraction plan? It’s a legitimate question, with a blow away answer.

The Company’s new CEO, Steven McAuley, who replaced the previous management team in January, is Six Sigma certified under the quality initiative of legendary GE chairman Jack Welch. We’ve never seen a Six Sigma certified CEO in the Canadian small cap markets. Never.
