ASX companies begin to show revenue from cannabis sales


ASX listed companies show their financial standing in their recently published half-yearly reports.

Of the cannabis-only companies, most are showing revenue – however the majority is from overseas sales.

Elixinol Global (AXS: EXL) is the clear leader, showing sales revenue of $36.3 million. However Elixinol Global includes subsidiaries Hemp Foods Australia, Elixinol USA, and more.

MGC Pharma (AXS: MXC) comes in second with $882,136 in sales revenue, mainly from their European operations.

Athea Group (AXS: AGH) backs up their statements about patient acquisition, showing on-shore revenue generation of $174,000.

The table below outlines the 11 ASX listed companies focussed solely on cannabis.

CannPal $10,710,000 $0 $349,679 $1,057,007 -$707,328
* BOD Australia does not differentiate between its cannabis revenue and revenue generated from other goods.

‘Other Revenue’ is generated from interest on cash reserves, non-cannabis related revenue, and R&D tax credits.

Expenses between these companies also varies significantly. The majority of expenses come from operational costs – employee benefits, legal fee’s, marketing, cost of goods, admin fees, office fees, etc.

Creso (ASX: CPH), however, paid almost $1.5m in ‘consultancy and facilitation fees’, and over $6m in ‘share based payment expenses’, while Botanix Pharma (ASX: BOT) spent around $7.5m in research and development.

AusCann (ASX: AC8), one of the leading companies in terms of valuation ($125.18m) made no revenue, invested no money in research and development, and seems to have little in terms of assets other than $41.7m in cash.

Beyond these companies, there are an additional 17 ASX listed companies not solely involved in cannabis.
